diamond engagement ring is one of the first and most important purchases
made when planning to get married. And these days, bigger seems
to be better.
When Michael Douglas proposed to Catherine Zeta-Jones, he presented
her with a 10-carat marquise-cut diamond engagement ring. They later
celebrated with a million dollar wedding at The Plaza.
Douglas and Zeta-Jones are a perfect example
of the new Bigger is Better trend. Not only are weddings
growing in extravagance, but the diamond engagement ring is growing
in size as well according to the Diamond Information Center. The
traditional one-carat solitaire has leaped from three to five carats.
one diamond isnt enough, then three certainly work very well
together. The new three-stone diamond engagement ring is gaining
in popularity among several of Hollywoods hottest couples.

Guy Ritchie and Madonnas case for mother, father and
son (Rocco). Ritchie chose a one-of-a-kind, Edwardian, round, three-stone
diamond ring with ornate diamond details throughout the platinum
Another couple that has taken a liking to the
three-stone trend is Phil Bronstein and Sharon Stone. Stone received
a beautiful emerald-cut three-stone diamond ring upon the adoption
of their son Rhone and in celebration of their wedding anniversary.
It was a perfect time to celebrate their past, present and future.
Another trend-setting duo who tied the knot,
Toni Braxton and Keri Russell, designed a stunning, three-stone
diamond ring: an oval-shaped center stone flanked by two heart-shaped
side stones. The three-stone diamond ring truly stands out by tying
new meaning to the traditional engagement ring.
The diamond engagement ring comes in a variety
of styles and the possibilities are endless, but overall its
truly a matter of personal taste. The diamond engagement ring is
a symbol of a relationship and reflects the unique bond between
husband and wife. It often sets the tone for the highly anticipated
weddings, especially when it comes to the over-the-top celebrity
weddings we all so anxiously await.
