It is expected that millionaire celebrities and influencers will have engagement rings to die for. With diamonds as big as their heads, and plenty of them, the celebrity engagement ring is a thing of beauty. But what about celebrity wedding rings? We rarely hear about the bands that celebs use when they exchange their vows to each other, yet they are often just as beautiful and impressive.
Here are three of our favourite celebrity wedding rings, and the celebrities that wear them:
In 2016 Kim Kardashian was robbed at knifepoint in Paris, and the thieves made off with her incredible wedding ring and engagement band, amongst other pieces. The ring in question was part of a haul worth an estimated $9 million.
So, what makes Kim K’s wedding ring so special? Well, it was custom made by Lorraine Schwartz, one of the most renowned and sought after jewellery designers in the world. The couple has coordinating bands created by the designer, but Kim’s was a little bigger and more detailed than Kanye’s: it was a handmade band encrusted with diamonds and intended to compliment the bride’s whopping 4 carat diamond engagement rings. The Kardashian’s live by the mantra that bigger is better, and that rule certainly seemed to apply to Kim’s incredible wedding set.
It is a long-held tradition that men in the royal family choose not to wear a wedding band: The Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Charles, and Prince William all decided not to wear a wedding band after their marriage. However, that doesn’t mean that the royal wives don’t wear wedding rings and none are more special and significant than the one worn by Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge.
Kate’s band is a simple Welsh gold wedding ring. What makes it so interesting is that is made from a special nugget of gold from the Clogau St David’s mine at Bontddu in North Wales. The gold from this mine is used specifically to make wedding bands for royal brides, meaning that Kate’s ring is unique. Kates ring is also wider than other royal wedding bands, meaning that it perfectly complements her iconic sapphire engagement ring.
Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber shocked the world with their surprise wedding following a whirlwind on again-off again romance and short engagement. And whilst details of their wedding ceremony have been kept secret, we do know that Justin proposed with a $500,000 oval shaped diamond which weighs in at between 6 and 10 carats. The huge stone is set into a slimline platinum band.
Once they were officially married, Hailey chose to wear a much wider platinum wedding ring that perfectly complements the shape and flow of her engagement ring. Both rings were custom made by New York City-based jeweller, Solow & Co. But what makes Hailey’s ring so special is the way in which it coordinates so perfectly with her engagement ring, blending with it seamlessly to create the illusion of one thicker band. If you’re looking for something understated and effortless, then this is the celebrity to imitate.
