Lively recently posted a picture on Instagram from a paint party at artist Ashley Longshore's gallery in New Orleans. The canvas on the table is covered in flowerlike bursts of color, and in the foreground we get a glimpse of Lively's unmanicured left hand with a yellow-gold “Mrs. R.” ring from designer Alison Lou on the ring finger. (Guys, the period is a white diamond.) We'd agree that the mom of two's engagement ring—a 12-carat oval-cut gem—isn't the most practical for channeling your inner Monet.
Elizabeth Taylor might have famously sported a 68-carat pear-shaped diamond, known as the Taylor-Burton Diamond—it was given to her by husband number five and six, Richard Burton—but these days members of Hollywood’s A-list are dialing it down, though with equal amounts of sparkle. When George Clooney finally got hitched to Amal Alamuddin, he made things official with a demure yet impactful emerald-cut ring of roughly seven carats. Opting for something a tad larger, Mrs. Ryan Reynolds—that’s Blake Lively—brought on the bling with a 12-carat oval cut flanked by tiny stones for added sparkle.
We don’t really need any more reasons to be jealous of Blake Lively. She’s beautiful, talented, and has an incredibly adorable family. Obviously this includes her hunky husband, Ryan Reynolds. They make us swoon daily with relationship goals, and now they’re giving us jewelry envy as well.
If you Googled #couplegoals, a big picture of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds would 100% pop up. Probably looking absolutely gorgeous, smiling and staring lovingly into each other's eyes, with their two adorable daughters James and Ines being ridiculously cute.
This week, Blake posted a picture to her Instagram showing off her art skills at her “favorite gallery,” Ashley Longshore Art. While fans were impressed by her freestyle painting, that ring was all anybody could talk about. The “Mrs. R” ring causes quite a stir online. Lucky for you, we have all the deets about how you can get one for yourself.
This week wasn’t the first time we saw her sporting her “R.” This is the first time we’ve seen her wear it on her left had, though. Usually, Blake wears a 12-carat oval cut Lorraine Schwartz engagement ring and a rose gold wedding band with delicate diamonds.
You can get your own alternative wedding ring for $950 from Alison Lou, and options include a band of white gold, yellow gold, or rose gold and either a white diamond, black diamond, ruby, emerald, or sapphire. According to the site, each item is made to order, and initial rings start at size 5 and go up to size 7.5. Not looking for a wedding-themed ring? Lou also offers a “Ms.” initial ring for the same price.
Blake is known for a lot of things (that luxurious blond hair for one) but her laid-back, cool-girl style is definitely one of her best assets. Not only can she dress up and be just about as glamorous as anybody ever dared to be, she can also rock a casual style like nobody’s business.
Blake LivelySplash News Online“Ryan chose Lorraine Schwartz to help him find a flawless, light pink oval diamond,” a spokesperson for the jeweler says. They worked together to design a custom setting in rose gold and pave diamonds with a nod to deco.
Amanda Seyfried’s thin gold band takes the opposite approach through its minimal design. Also going the unconventional route is Mary-Kate Olsen, whose vintage Cartier ring has hints of color through sapphires. But perhaps the world’s most famous engagement ring? The sapphire and diamond version from Garrard of Mayfair previously owned by Princess Diana. And for a major statement with a dash of bold flair, Victoria Beckham’s canary yellow emerald-cut diamond engagement ring (one of many she’s been spotted in) is flanked by complementary stones, which amp up the effect. Here, we break down the seven types of rings fit for every type of woman.
Kidman’s engagement ring from country star Keith Urban is unique in that it is not one solitaire stone, but rather a Cartier ring of diamonds surrounding her finger. Its estimated value is around $50,000.
Middleton famously accepted Princess Diana’s blue sapphire engagement ring when Prince William proposed to her. The ring boasts a 12-carat central sapphire stone with 14 solitaire diamonds in a halo around it, and has soared in value to more than $550,000.
There are few things more gawk-worthy than a celebrity engagement ring. The world’s rich and famous have a tendency to adorn their betrothed with some of the biggest, brightest, and (of course) priciest diamonds.
Fear not though, 'cos the ring also comes in a 'Ms' version for all us strong, independent women out there. It's also available in white gold, gold and rose gold with a choice of five different precious stones.
