When you’re contemplating an engagement ring, you may care to consider that engagement rings can tell you a lot about a person. According to jewelry experts, an engagement ring is as individual as the person who wears it. Here are three top celebrity engagement ring styles and some clues to what the style means:

Fancy-Shaped Diamonds
Round diamonds are undoubtedly the most-popular shape stone for engagement rings. However, there is an entire world of “fancy” shapes available including emerald, oval, marquise, pear and cushion. These fancy-shaped sparklers say the person is fashion forward with distinctive style. Celebrity fancy-shaped engagement ring wearers include Ellen Pompeo (emerald), Katherine Heigl (pear), Eva Longoria Parker (emerald) and Victoria Beckham (marquis).

Romantic Vintage Inspiration
Vintage engagement rings are romantic and ornately crafted. However, you don’t have to scour estate stores to find vintage design. New, vintage-inspired rings are being meticulously designed to be just as beautiful as their predecessors. Platinum, white gold, and palladium are great options, as vintage styles are best suited for cool metals. Vintage and vintage-inspired rings say the person is passionate, optimistic and hopelessly romantic, suggest the experts at the Jewelry Information Center. Celebrities such as Kate Walsh, Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Love Hewitt adore vintage styles.

Brilliant Color
Getting engaged is a colorful time in a couple’s life. Engagement rings are now equally as vibrant and vivid. Diamonds come in nearly every color in the rainbow. However, like a rainbow on a clear day, they are very rare. Being rare also makes them very valuable and pricey. Yet, small accent stones can be attainable and make a big impact. Women wearing colored diamonds want to make heads turn and are fun spirited while craving luxury. Heidi Klum, Rebecca Romijn and Brooke Mueller (Charlie Sheen’s fiancée) all have yellow diamond engagement rings.
Engagement rings and wedding bands serve as a lifelong reminder of dedicated love. They are passed down through generations. Find the right rings by shopping with a reputable jeweler.
