Interesting illustrations of some iconic rings and wedding sets. I didn't know that Audrey Hepburn had a stack of 3 bands instead of a traditional wedding set. She was always light years ahead of fashion trends! :twirl:

Which ring is your favorite? I like Elizabeth Taylor's and Queen Elizabeth's! :bigsmile:

Very interesting!

Thanks for sharing, Mochiko42! :wavey:

Do I have to pick a favorite. That could take some time! There are too many beautiful ones from which to choose! :lol:

Definitely Grace Kelly's, as I love ECs, and was fortunate enough to see it in person in Paris as part of the exhibits for the Cartier's show.

Elizabeth Taylor's is just too big for my liking. Perhaps I too would like it if it is on my hand! :bigsmile:

I never liked the sapphire ring; Jackie's is too fussy; however, I quite like QEII's ring.

Yes! Its lovely!

The sketch in the article didn't do much for me, however, I've seen photos of the ring and it is beautiful!

Here are a couple of photos.

My favorite is Grace Kelly's. Agree that the Kennedy ring is messy and I was also never sure about the sapphire. The queen's is OK but nothing that special IMO. I think that the Taylor ring is absurdly large. I think that her diamond set as a pendant plus Grace Kelly's ring as an e-ring would be the ideal set.

Mochiko! Thank you for sharing these beauties! I love Grace Kelly's emerald cut 10 plus carat diamond. Oh la la. And I also love that Prince Ranier proposed to her with a smaller diamond and when he realized that others in their social circles were wearing larger diamonds he got her this 10 plus carat emerald diamond. :love: See we are not the only ones who upgrade. :appl:

Oh, my! This is wonderful. I think my favorite's is Queen Elizabeth's as well. But I have always had a soft spot for the Krupp diamond. :love:

My favorite is Queen Elizabeth's ring - just love the look; no wonder I have the rings I do!

Jackie's ring looks like a cocktail ring to me, Liz wore hers well but far too large for my tastes as is Princess Grace's ring. I love Diana's sapphire ring but in all honesty, I wouldn't have wanted it for an engagement ring.

We're all different and tastes surely vary!

Mochiko, I hope you don't mind if I add this link. I would love to see a better pic of Mia Farrow's 9 carat pear ER.

Thanks for sharing the link, missy! It's interesting to see that apart from Angelina's ring, the recent trend has been towards micro bands. Kim and Beyoncé's bands look almost too thin for those giant rocks. :lol:

It's funny how every entertainment site describes Jennifer Aniston's diamond differently. I've seen it called a rose cut, radiant, cushion... I would guess it's a rose cut.

I wonder if Mia Farrow kept her ring? Pears aren't my cup of tea but it looks gorgeous.
