Celebrity Engagement Ring Trends
According to 77 Diamonds, a survey of 100 highest-profile celebrity proposals revealed these top picks for engagement rings, diamond shapes, value, and more. Here’s what they found for metal and cut.
Metal and Cut
For celebrity engagement ring trends back in 2013-2015, platinum was the go-to for metal choice. While white gold soared to the top of the charts in 2016, surprisingly yellow gold is the top pick for 2017 celebrity engagement ring trends.
We’re seeing oval cut and emerald cut diamonds leading the way for engagement ring styles; emerald is at the very top of the chart as a hot pick right now.

Who can argue with emerald?! It’s one of my favorites!
You can see how beautiful an emerald cut diamond looks with a variety of bands: check out classic, halo, vintage, diamond band, and triology (from 77 Diamonds), below.

Value and Carat
When it comes to carat and value, 77 Diamonds tells us,
“Cost per carat has changed dramatically since 2014. While both value and carat are on an upward trend, celebrities have been spending much more on diamond quality than in previous years.”
Here’s a chart to show the growth:

So, where are celebrities getting engaged? They tell us, “Athletes such as Rory McIlroy favour proposing in France, while musicians such as Justin Timberlake prefer the USA.”
When it comes to celebrity engagement ring trends, timing is everything!
According to 77 Diamonds,
“Most celebrities surveyed got engaged in either the summer or festive season, proving that heat and cheer make for engaged celebs! The data is also skewed by those celebs who venture to the southern hemisphere for an engagement, where summertime occurs during December and January.”
According to their findings, December is the most popular month to get engaged. January came in 2nd with August trailing not too far behind.
