The only thing people love more than a love story is a celebrity love story–and love was in the air for many of Hollywood’s most famous couples. We heard tales of romantic engagements and watched clips of very public displays while waiting to get a glimpse of the diamonds. From Meghan Markle’s stunning three-stone ring to Cardi B’s enormous diamond, there have been plenty of engagement rings to fill your inspiration board. So, as we look forward to the new year, here are the most awe-inspiring celebrity engagement rings from 2017.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle revealed news of their royal engagement at the end of November, and royal wedding plans will no doubt continue to make headlines until their May 2018 nuptials. Prince Harry designed the three-stone engagement ring himself, and the sentimental value behind the ring will pull at your heartstrings. The center stone was sourced from Botswana, a country close to the couple’s heart, and the two side stones are from his late mother Princess Diana’s personal collection.
