Why is Blake Lively's engagement ring one of the world's most valuable?

Blake Lively is a California girl and actress who is always making a statement on the big screen. The Hollywood superstar blows fans away with her free-spirit, excellent fashion sense, and her drop-dead gorgeous engagement ring.

With a huge pink diamond on her finger, it's no surprise that Blake Lively, the Gossip Girl fashionista, sparked some significant trends with her ring.

Given that the couple never made any formal announcements about their engagement, the star didn't take to social media to share close ups of her ring when Ryan Reynolds popped the question, however thankfully, the ring is so impressive, it's difficult to ignore.

According to an interview with British Vogue, she revealed its  her most precious gift  from Ryan Reynolds, which she surprisingly didn't help pick out. Not even a little bit.

Blake married Ryan Reynolds on August 31, 2012, although the couple kept much of their previous relationship a secret. Lively's ring is still as stunning today as it was when Ryan Reynolds proposed in 2012 — and she's seldom seen without it on her finger.

Lorraine Schwartz, a jeweller and friend of Reynolds designed Blake Lively's engagement ring. Lorraine Schwartz's engagement ring is a superb example of her artistry. He wasn't relying only on his good judgment, though, as Schwartz is a well-known jeweller, particularly on the Hollywood circle. They worked on the design together, and the outcome was no doubt a masterpiece.

To begin, the centerpiece of the ring is the solitaire-set oval pink stone. It weighs a whopping 12 carats and is flawless in clarity, but believe it or not, that's not even the most remarkable aspect of Blake Lively's ring.

The most notable feature is that it is a very light blush-colored diamond. Pink diamonds, such as the one used in her setting, are among the purest colored diamonds in the world, making her ring even more unique. According to our  estimates, the ring is worth around $2 million.

In December 2020, the world's main source of pink diamonds, the Argyle mine in Australia, closed down, meaning pink diamonds subsequently soared in value. Just like Jennifer Lopez, who also owns a pink diamond, the ring on Blake Lively's finger is likely to be worth a whole lot more in years to come.

Lively's engagement ring appears to have two different bands, but her wedding band has been engineered to sit in this position alongside her engagement ring. The designer created this wedfit design to complete the traditional appearance.

The rare pink diamond is placed on an extremely thin diamond ring, which makes the diamond appear even more prominent and adds just a hint of shine. From the sheer size of the rock to the glitter of the rare pink diamond, Lively's ring dazzles in every aspect.

The couple married in a stunning Southern-inspired ceremony in South Carolina in September of 2012. The bride chose an exquisite silk tulle Marchesa gown with rose gold embroidery to match her engagement ring setting. After nearly five years of marriage, this Hollywood power couple are still blissfully married.

While Blake Lively's engagement ring started a decade ago, the slim band trend is still going strong, with Kourtney Kardashian the latest celebrity to recreate this style.
