Amal Alamuddin’s engagement ring from George Clooney represents the couple’s strong and supportive

I think we can all agree that George and Amal Clooney are most of the most glamorous couples in Hollywood.

After meeting through a mutual friend at George’s home in Italy in July 2013, the pair hit it off. Though it wasn’t until the October that they shared their first date.

By April 2014, the actor had popped the question to Amal – though his proposal didn’t exactly go to plan.

To celebrate the happy couples nine year wedding anniversary, engagement ring specialists at Steven Stone have recounted the tale of their proposal and taken another look at Amal’s beautiful engagement ring.

 The Proposal

During an appearance on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’, George explained that he’d planned a romantic proposal and cooked dinner for Amal, but things didn’t go according to plan and the proposal ended up being a 25-minute long disaster.

A true romantic, George played a playlist of Rosemary Clooney songs and got down on one knee when ‘Why Shouldn’t I?’ came on – though Amal was so shocked that she left poor George hanging before saying yes.

The Ring

George reportedly played a huge part in designing Amal’s engagement ring, which features an ethically mined diamond –  ‘ethically mined’ is a term used to identify diamonds that were mined without exploiting workers or the environment

According to Steven Stone’s leading diamond Expert, Maxwell Stone, Amal’s 7ct emerald cut stone is flanked by two tapered baguettes and set on a platinum band.

The emerald cut diamond is a popular choice for engagement rings, and is considered the most classic style. Due to its long lines, the diamond reflects broader and more dramatic flashes of light and is less fiery then brilliant cut diamonds.

A popular and perfect cut for engagement rings, emerald cut diamonds are associated with strong and supportive love, commitment, and compassion for one’s partner.

Maxwell estimates the ring to be worth $500,000 (£410,000).

“When George Clooney planned his romantic proposal to Amal Alamuddin, he played a big part in designing the perfect engagement ring for his future wife.

Amal’s engagement ring features a 7ct emerald cut stone. Considered the most classic style, emerald cut diamonds reflect broader and more dramatic flashes of light and are less fiery than brilliant cut diamonds. The symbolic shape is associated with a couple’s strong love, commitment and compassion to another.

Set on a platinum band, Amal’s ethically sourced centre stone is flanked by two tapered baguettes, which makes it a three stone engagement ring. Creating a unique look for the wearer, three stone engagement rings spread the sparkle across multiple stones and are said to represent the past, present and future of a couple’s relationship.

I’d estimate Amal’s engagement ring from George to be worth $500,000 (£410,000).”
