George sure knows how to settle down in style! The actor presented his beautiful fiancé with a gigantic, emerald-cut engagement ring — and she was all smiles as she showed off her new sparkler! Find out all about the huge, ethically-mined diamond creation he helped design.
Although we were finally coming to terms with the fact that George Clooney, 52, was an eternal bachelor, he managed to totally shock everyone when she decided to settle down with stunning lawyer Amal Almuddin — and he made the engagement official with a ginormous sparkler!
Amal Alamuddin’s Engagement Ring From George Clooney:
According to People magazine, George popped the question on bended knee in London, (where Amal resides) — and just five days later the couple stepped out and showed off Amal’s brand new bling at a private dinner in Santa Barbara on April 27, where the newly engaged couple stepped out to celebrate Rande Gerber‘s 52nd birthday with Rande and his wife, Cindy Crawford — and the couple couldn’t hide their happiness, (or Amal’s engagement ring!).
As the couple engaged in PDA, Amal gave those in attendance a closeup of her ring, which is made up of a gigantic emerald-cut diamond. According to the magazine, George actually helped design the stunning sparkler and pick out the ethically-mined diamond ring, which also features two tapered baguettes. The creation, set in platinum, is classic and possesses a vintage vibe — and it surely makes a statement!
We consulted NYC jeweler Shari Fabrikant of Robert Fabrikant Inc., who said, “The stone appears to be app 7.50 cts. It is set in a handmade platinum mounting with tapered baguettes. The emerald cut looks like a D or E color and is probably a VS1 or better. If it is this quality, it would run at least $650,000.”
According to Mark Keeney Vice President of Marketing at Ritani, Amal’s vintage-inspired ring is just magnificent. “The celebrity trend for all things vintage is continuing with this magnificent emerald cut, canary diamond flanked by two tapered baguettes. This cut and color having become increasingly popular since the re-release of the Great Gatsby two years ago– and with a with a center stone that appears to be a 7+ carat stone – Alamuddin is likely to overshadow her fiancee’s attention by the media, on and off the red carpet, for a while.”
