Not gonna lie: I’m not that interested in the Ryan Reynolds part, but I’d cut a fool for Blake Lively’s engagement ring. The rose gold pavé makes the giant, honking diamond seem positively delicate, which is no small feat. Rose gold’s pink sheen comes from copper, which makes it a great option for people with nickel allergies, who need to avoid 14k white and yellow gold (like yours truly). And it seems that more jewelry designers are setting rose gold with diamond alternatives–moissanite, morganite, white topaz, aquamarine, and grey & black diamonds–making it a relatively affordable option for a high-impact, lower-cost ring.
But why are we still talking when we could be ring shopping? On to the jewels!
From left to right, top to bottom:
6 :: 14K Rose Gold 1.75 Carat Black & White Diamonds Set–so very…me. Love the knife edge, the giant black stone, the contrast between dark and sweet.
7 :: White Topaz And 14k Recycled Rose Gold Solitaire Ring–this gorgeous thing is $688. Better buy it before I do.
8 :: Rose Gold Ruby Wedding Band–one of those rings where quiet trumps flashy.
10 :: Hand Engraved 14K Rose Gold Star Pattern Engagement Ring–a vintage-inspired stunner.
12 :: 14 Karat Rose Gold and Petal-Set Moissanite Engagement Ring–another piece from Natasha Kahn Designs (see the grey rose-cut diamond above)
13 :: Aquamarine and 14k Rose Gold Engagement RIng and Wedding Band Wedding Set–the cool blue makes the warm metal really pop.
Anna says: our roundups are intended to be both inspirational and aspirational. Some objects are cheap and accessible, while others are dreamier in both price and scope. We try to curate choices from smaller, less well-known shops and larger retailers alike. We suggest you cherrypick the things that appeal to you, ignore the ones that don’t, and share them in equal measure with our already Pinterested style boards.
