We are halfway through 2022 and we are surrounded by wedding bells. With celebrities finding love and saying “yes”, it would be ideal to know who is tying the knot and how they did it. While they will be in the process of finding their something old, something borrowed and something blue, we’re here to talk about the little something on their fingers.
Our celebrities took the words of Beyonce and really embodied “if you like it then you shut up and put a ring on it!”. The star-studded engagement rings fit our stars and the proposals we are aware of definitely have us collectively saying “aww”. From different cuts to carat counts, we will be addressing the different details we picked up on about these stellar rings and the couples that adorn it. Now while we humbly wait for 2022 to wrap up and more couples to announce their engagement, or keep a close eye on the wedding preparations of those already hitched, let’s get started.
Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly
This couple has been a topic of discussion ever since they got together. They really put an image to the words “My Bloody Valentine”. On January 11, Machine Gun Kelly got down on one knee to propose to his Transformers star Girlfriend Megan Fox at the Ritz-Carlton in Puerto Rico. They wasted no time in announcing the news the very next day and left fans in awe of the 2-2.5 each two-stone emerald and diamond piece ring.
Machine Gun Kelly, whose real name is Colson Baker, worked closely with the ring designer, Stephen Webster. Embodying Megan’s birth stone with the diamond, the magnets within the gold combine the two rings into one. The twin flames could not have been better represented by this special ring.
Lana Condor and Anthony De La Torre
The star of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before seems to have found the only boy she will ever love in singer Anthony De La Torre. After 7 years of dating, Lana Condor announced their engagement on Instagram on the 28th of January, 2022.
Lana Condor and singer Anthony De La Torre are engaged after almost seven years of dating.
“Saying YES was the easiest decision I’ve ever made. I consider myself the absolute luckiest woman alive to live in your sphere. Aside from my father, without a doubt, you are the greatest man in the world. Emmy & Timmy said its about time mommy & daddy got engaged!!!”, Lana captioned her absolutely adorable post filled with pictures and videos of the proposal. She also stated the effort and thought put into the ring by her beloved fiancé.
“Anthony worked with the INCREDIBLE Vietnamese female owned @parisjewellerscanada to design the most stunning piece I’ve ever seen!” She went on to compliment the thoughtful gesture made by her fiancé who paid homage to her roots, “The fact he knew how important it was to me that he’d collaborate w/ a Vietnamese company to help design my ring is a testament to just how truly thoughtful he always is. I cannot wait to be your wife, baby. I love you a million times over.”
Simone Biles and Jonathan Owens
Sportsmanship or relationship? Olympic gymnast, Simone Biles, announced the happy news of her engagement to NFL player Johnathan Owens on Instagram through an adorable post on the 15th of February, 2022.
“THE EASIEST YES I can’t wait to spend forever & ever with you, you’re everything I dreamed of and more! let’s get married FIANCÉ” she captioned the series of pictures from the proposal. Owens, a safety for the Houston Texans, shared the happiness by sharing the same series of pictures as a post on his own Instagram page and captioned it with credits to his friends in aiding him in the surprise.
“Woke up this morning with a fiancée. Appreciate my dawg @don_julio314 for helping me set everything up, she really had no clue what was coming @zofrost you went crazy on this one bro really made the night special”. The couple confirmed their relationship on Instagram in August 2020 but could not celebrate their first anniversary together in 2021 due to Biles being stationed in Tokyo, Japan for the 2020 Summer Olympics. Regardless, Owens showered her with love and support over social media.
CEO of The Diamond Pro, Mike Fried, estimated the dazzling ring to a value of $800,000 and to be ‘at least’ eight carats. Truly a winner like our couple!
Tom Hiddleston and Zawe Ashton
Tom Hiddleston and Zawe Ashton have been together since 2019. The couple was recently seen walking side by side on the red carpet at the 2022 BAFTA Awards. And it seems the cameras were not the only thing that flashed bright.
Hiddleston, 41, and Ashton, 37, are reportedly officially engaged according to multiple sources and of course, the diamond ring spotted on her left hand at the awards. The couple met on the 2019 production of Betrayal and other than starring in the show’s original run, they went on to reprise their roles in the Broadway edition of the play. Although they kept their relationship private, fans were made certain when they went on a vacation together in September. The Ibiza beach witnessed the couple holding hands and kissing, perhaps embarking on their honeymoon phase.
Mike Fried, the CEO of The Diamond Pro, suggests that the ring adorned by Ashton appears to be five carats, worth approximately a whopping $150,000.
Avril Lavigne and Mod Sun
He’s just a boy, and she’s just a girl. Can we make it anymore obvious? That’s right. Our Skater Girl singer is engaged to pop-punker Mod Sun just after a year of dating! The couple announced their engagement on Instagram on April 7, 2022 although the couple got engaged in Paris on 27th March 2022.
She went on about the moment to People that “It was the most perfect, romantic proposal I could ever ask for. We were in Paris on a boat in the Seine River. We had a violin player, champagne and roses. It felt like time stood still, and it was just the two of us in the moment.”
Mod Sun, whose real name is Derek Ryan Smith, first connected with Lavigne to co-write his song “Flames” on his 2021 album Internet Killed the Rockstar. “I knew we had a very strong unstoppable connection from the first week of writing and working together in the studio.”
It was not too late when the rumor circuit caught them under their radar when the couple was seen together at the 63rd Grammys in 2021. However, it seemed they managed the rumor mill quite well because it was not until the VMA’s in September 2021 in New York that they were officially seen together for what you would categorize the first time.
The heart-shaped diamond-cut ring rests beautifully on Lavigne’s finger as she happily shows it off whilst lovingly looking at her fiancé. We wish our Its Complicated singer a married life with no complications at all!
Marc Anthony and Nadia Ferreira
Its raining diamonds with Marc Anthony and Nadia Ferreira who after just 3 months of dating are not engaged! Ferreira took to Instagram to announce on May 12 about their marriage plans with a photo of the diamond ring at the couple’s supposed engagement party.
The ring emoji accompanied a captioned picture of her and Anthony holding hands, captioned “Engagement party!!!”. The news comes after just one month of Anthony’s ex-wife, Jennifer Lopez, getting engaged to Ben Affleck in April 2022.
Mike Fried, CEO of The Diamond Pro, estimated the ring to be an impressive half a million dollars with it easily being about 10 carats. The emerald-cut center stone is very similar to the three stone ring he gave to his ex-wife; however this is flanked by two tapered baguettes.
Although Anthony himself is yet to confirm the news, it seems pretty official!
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck
After her divorce from Marc Anthony in 2014, fans were overjoyed at the reunion of Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck. The couple first dated from 2002 to 2004 and were engaged. However, they split and left many heartbroken. But the reunion in 2021 sent the tabloids crazy with their love.J-Lo took to Instagram to announce her engagement through her On the JLo newsletter via video. She tweeted, “Major announcement!!!!” and fought back tears in the video as she showed off her green ring. The 8.5 carat green diamond ring symbolically holds a special place for J-Lo as she commented on the importance of green in her life.
“I always say the color green is my lucky color,” Lopez once shared in a newsletter. “Maybe you can remember a certain green dress. I’ve realized there are many moments in my life where amazing things happened when I was wearing green
And there you have it, folks! We wish these couples the absolute best and that their love continues to sparkle bright like the rings they wear. We’re only halfway through 2022. What other couples do you think would be popping the question and tying the knot this year? Guess we will have to wait and see!
