The Best Celebrity Engagement Rings of 2017

Engaged!

2017 had its fair share of celebrity relationship drama, from the Anna Faris/Chris Pratt split to Jenny Slate’s on-again, off-again, wonderfully on-again romance with Chris Evans. But plenty of famous people found True, Everlasting, Famous Love, and got engaged! Meghan Markle, two Game of Thrones couples, and Cardi B all flaunted some beautiful, massive, Hollywood-worthy engagement rings. Let’s take a walk down memory lane, shall we?

Wrestler John Cena proposed to Bella in an actual wrestling ring, in front of the crowd at WrestleMania 33 in Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida. Love a public proposal!

Chiara Ferragni, Engaged in May

The “Blonde Salad” blogger was surprised by her fiancé, the singer Fedez, with an onstage proposal at a Verona, Italy, concert. They’re now expecting a child.

Emily VanCamp, Engaged in May

It’s always fun when celebrities immediately share the ring on Instagram — no waiting! VanCamp’s Revenge co-star Josh Bowman proposed on May 11, and the actress announced it with a solo shot of herself and the ring.

Game of Thrones stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie kept their engagement pretty low-key and announced it in The Times of London, in lieu of social media. Paparazzi spotted the gold engagement ring while Leslie was at Heathrow airport.

Sophie Turner, Engaged in October

Former Disney heartthrob Joe Jonas proposed to Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner — and then fellow Game of Thrones cast members and Jonas family/cast members shared the same staged photo of the ring on social media. Romance!

Keyshia Ka’oir Davis, Married in October

Technically, model Ka’oir Davis and Gucci Mane tied the knot in 2017. So while their wedding bands don’t necessarily belong on this list, they’re so sparkly that they warrant an exception. Their wedding was … icy. Her bouquet was made of diamonds, her dress was embellished with crystals, and she wore a sparkly headpiece. Their wedding bands were no exception to the More Is More rule.

Caitlin McHugh, Engaged in October

Who knew John Stamos was such a softie? The actor planned a Disney-themed proposal for fiancée Caitlin McHugh, complete with a Little Mermaid serenade. The proposal was playful, but the ring is serious bling.

Cardi B, Engaged in October

B’s fiancé, Migos rapper Offset, reportedly spent $550,000 on the 8-carat ring. He bought it hours before a live, onstage proposal at his Philadelphia concert.

Meghan Markle, Engaged in November

The classic kissing-my-fiancé-but-really-showing-off-the-ring Instagram pose! New York Giants player Sterling Shepard proposed to the model on the water, surrounded by candles. Again, a classic.
