The dazzle of a diamond is always captivating, especially if the carats top the ring of a Tinseltown star. Following are a few engagement and wedding rings that have sparkled on the left hands of celebrity brides and brides-to-be:
Over the years Altobelli Jewelers has supplied A-list accessories for a number of silver screen hits, including Sleepless in Seattle and The Princess Diaries. In 2005 the Hollywood store created “I do” designs for Growing Pains star Alan Thicke and his bride, Tanya Callau (seen in the photo to the left.)
Like the graceful reality star who has waltzed into the hearts of television viewers, rays of light dance on the facets of Karina Smirnoff‘s (Dancing with the Stars) 3-carat Harry Winston platinum and diamond engagement ring. Making the stunner that much more special, the symbol of love was presented to the bride-to-be in a Louis Vuitton bag.
Since winning America’s Next Top Model, Eva Marcille (formerly known as Eva Pigford) has not only ruled runways around the world, but has also strolled on to the set of The Young and the Restless. Now she is planning on her walk down the aisle with actor Lance Gross after receiving a 3.36-carat diamond 1895 Pave Cartier engagement ring on Christmas Eve 2008.
Rules of Engagement star Bianca Kajlich received a 2-carat ring made to fit her finger by 23rd Street Jewelers, a store which played a pivotal role in an episode of the HBO series Curb Your Enthusiasm.
On December 18, 2008, beau David Bugliari “Charmed” Alyssa Milano with a cushion-cut diamond which crowned a diamond-studded 18K gold band. The custom-designed creation (seen in the photo to the left) was purchased from Daniel Jewelry in La Jolla, California.
From the acting roles she has chosen to the music she performs, Majandra Delfino has always gone against the grain. Instead of a standard sparkler, a garnet ring graced the former Roswell star’s finger. Purchased at the Beverly Hills Watch Co., a gold wedding band from the same jeweler was added in October 2007 by former My So-Called Life star Devon Gummersall.
Valentine’s Day will always hold a special meaning for Black Eyed Peas member Taboo, who chose the holiday to present a 3-carat cushion cut design from Neil Lane to his love, Jaymie Dizon.
Actor Mekhi Phifer, who checked the heart rate of his patients during his stint on ER, no doubt caused Oni Souratha’s heart to skip a beat when he presented her with a 2.65-carat diamond solitaire set on a micro pave band from Jason of Beverly Hills.
The 9 1/2 carat diamond ring worn by Jenna Jameson during her three year marriage to Jay Grdina is no longer on her finger, nor is the tattoo of her former husband’s first name, which was inked into her skin beneath its band (as shown in the photo to the left.) Like the gem’s many facets, however, the former queen of adult entertainment’s smile continues to shine as she enters a new phase of her life with her love Tito Ortiz. The couple are currently awaiting the arrival of two bundles of joy.
“Happy today. Happy together. Happy forever. From Mr. to Mrs.” Written on a card accompanying former American Idol finalist LaKisha Jones‘ 4.5-carat diamond ring from Zales, the warm sentiment made the singer’s engagement priceless.
Kristy Lee Cook may have been eliminated during season seven of American Idol, but she has won the heart of Andrew Dobner, who slipped an engagement ring from King Jewelers in Grant’s Pass, Oregon on her finger.
