Our Favourite Celebrity Engagement Rings

‘A diamond is forever’ but engagement rings weren’t always about a sparkler. In fact, the first time a groom gave a bride a diamond engagement ring was in 1477 when Archduke Maximilian of Austria proposed to Mary of Burgundy with a ring set with thin, flat pieces of diamonds in the shape of an ‘M’. This kicked off a fad amongst European royalty who began adding precious gems to their jewellery from then on. However, the idea of using a diamond to pop the question didn’t become mainstream until the late 19th Century when diamonds were discovered in South Africa. Fast forward to modern times, it’s hard to imagine being proposed to without a dazzling gem, and nobody knows the power of a beautiful rock more than the world’s famous faces.
