Unusual Celebrity Engagement Rings—Yes One Is a Ruby!

Every once in a while a celebrity wants something a little different for an engagement ring—or they are surprised by one when proposed to. We found some rings given to celebs as engagement rings that we particularly liked here at Peter Suchy Jewelers.
Ruby Ring for Jessica Simpson
If you’re a Jessica Simpson fan, you know her birthday falls in July so fiancé Eric Johnson stepped outside the box and gave her a five-carat ruby engagement ring spotted with diamonds. According to People Magazine, the ring was created by celebrity jewelry designer Neil Lane and includes side pear-shaped diamonds. Lovely we think because in our store, there’s nothing better than a vintage ruby ring!
Dangling Diamond Ring for Rebecca Romijn
According to InStyle.com, Jerry O’Connell may have outdone all the other celebs out there when he gave Rebecca Romijn a six-carat yellow diamond engagement ring—but there’s a twist to this ring. Once pregnant, Rebecca wanted to change the setting and asked jewelry designer Lorraine Schwartz to help her come up with a stunning new design. Now the diamond “dangles” from the ring—something we think is very sexy. Well done!
Sapphire Ring for Elizabeth Hurley 
Zap2it.comrevealed an awesome image of Elizabeth Hurley’s sapphire and diamond engagement ring. Given to her by cricket-playing fiancé Shane Warne, the ring is in a platinum setting and with a nine-carat sapphire and two-carat trillion cut diamonds on each side. Another tidbit about this ring is the sapphire gem is also her hubby’s birthstone (September)!
