Diamonds continue to be the most sought after gemstone for engagement rings, but unconventional styles are showing up more and more. Future brides want a ring style that represents their unique style and tastes; not a cookie-cutter, big box ring you can get anywhere.
We’re seeing non-traditional engagement rings all over the place. Last year, Orlando Bloom proposed to Katy Perry with a floral designed ring showcasing a ruby at its center. Lindsey Vonn received an emerald birthstone engagement ring, which is on trend for 2020. And sapphires made an appearance in Hoda Kotb’s custom made ring from her partner.
This time, a celebrity is embracing a super unique style– a pearl engagement ring! Emma Stone and Dave McCary announced their engagement last month, and fans are loving the unique bling.
From Superbad to Academy Award winning actress, Emma Stone has been in the limelight since childhood. She was the highest paid actress in the world in 2017. But there’s no 15 carat, $2 million dollar diamond ring for this A-List celeb. You’ll be surprised by how affordable Stone’s engagement ring is!
Dave McCrary is a Saturday Night Live segment director, and has largely flown under the radar during his two year relationship with Stone. They met on the SNL set when she hosted the show back in 2016.
The first year and a half of the relationship was kept rather quiet, and probably on purpose. Stone and McCrary were first spotted leaving the premiere of his film Brigsby Bear in 2017. Rumors surfaced of a split in 2018, when Emma was seen dining out with an ex. Later in the year, the two seemed to be snuggly on the dance floor of a a roller-skating party that Emma hosted in December 2018.
Emma Stone and Dave McCrary finally make a few public appearances in early 2019– court side at a Clippers game and again at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
The Engagement Story
After a few earlier engagement ring rumors in 2019 after Emma is spotted with a diamond ring on that finger, they announce the real deal engagement on Instagram.
Buuuuut, they haven”t really spilled any details on how the engagment went down. It was probably a super intimate and sweet proposal given their low key and private relationship.
Even Dave’s caption leaves everything a mystery; just a simple heart emoji. We’ll wait for the details. In the meantime, on to what we know about the ring.
Although the Instagram image is blurry, we can tell the ring center is a pearl! And luckily, sources were able to dish on the details. Pearls are making huge moves in the jewelry scene. The strand of pearls was once considered a classy grandma necessity. Now, individual pearls are making statements in dainty necklaces and rings.
Sources confirmed with People and Page Six that the hand made ring is from the New York based jewelry store Catbird. There are three NYC locations: two in Brooklyn and one in lower Manhattan. Apparently Meghan Markle and Taylor Swift are also fans of the trendy company.
This particular pearl ring is the Karaoke Pearl Snowflake Ring-Supreme. How fitting for a December winter engagement.
The ring, which retails for $4,780, was made in the workshop of renowned Tokyo-based jeweler Yoshinobu Kataoka, and features 8 millimeters of “untreated Akoya pearl,” 0.37 carat diamonds and solid 18-karat gold band, according to the brand’s website.
Akoya pearls are considered to be the classic pearl used for necklaces and other pearl jewelry, due to their perfectly round shapes, bright mirror-like luster and neutral colors.
Final Thoughts on Emma Stone’s Engagement Ring
This ring hits all the marks for a uniquely, beautiful engagement ring. It’s the perfect blend between a classic style and modern updates. And affordable at that!
Pearl is actually the June birthstone (along with the Alexandrite). Birthstone rings were a huge trend for 2019, and we don’t see that slowing down anytime soon. The dainty band style has been popular for a few years, and makes the center stone a focal point.
