There’s nothing better than indulging in a little bit of celebrity gossip. But here at Shiels, we’re only interested in all that happy gossip and it’s even better if it involves a bit of serious bling! The past twelve months we have seen some seriously big stars getting serious in their relationships. Even the ever independent woman Cameron Diaz is planning to take the plunge with musician Benji Madden.
Amongst these celebrity engagements, two couples are definitely our standout favourites – Lady Gaga to Taylor Kinney and Iggy Azalea to Nick Young.
Lady gaga & Taylor Kinney
Lady Gaga’s engagement to Taylor Kinney was a surprise to many of us but we love their cute Valentine’s Day engagement story of Taylor first proposing with a big ring made of candy. Only after Lady Gaga’s tearful “Yes” did Taylor whip out that spectacular heart shaped diamond ring. And what an amazing ring it is! The gorgeous heart shaped diamond is a stunning 10 carats, with the initials T and S featured on the band for the couple’s names (Stefani is Lady Gaga’s birth name).
We love this quote from Lady Gaga on love and Taylor Kinney:
“It makes everything better. When you're in love and have love it makes everything better. From the moment I met him, my heart was with him."
Channel a bit of that loved up feeling and Lady Gaga’s ring with a sparkling heart shaped diamond bridal set. Or go down the coloured gemstone path with a heart shaped amethyst or created ruby gold ring.
Iggy Azalea & Nick Young
We can’t imagine anyone saying ‘no’ when faced with the gorgeous 10 carat yellow diamond ring LA Lakers player, Nick Young, presented to Iggy Azalea! The happy couple got engaged only this month after dating for just over a year and a half. The professional basketball player got down on bended knee to pop the question to the pop star/rapper (anyone else unsure as to where Iggy sits on the musical spectrum?) at his 30th birthday party. Who knew sports jocks were such old fashioned romantics? We love it!
