Celebrity Engagement News February 2014
By: Vanscoy Diamonds
February proposals are completely common, but that doesn't mean that the ring has to be. Here are some recent celebrity proposals that may inspire you and we'll show you how Van Scoy Diamonds can help. First up, Kacie Boguskie announces her engagement to boyfriend, music producer, Rusty Gaston. Rusty worked with a designer to create a ring for his bride-to-be and Kacie tweeted how blessed she was to be marrying her best friend, that her ring was beautiful and she couldn't wait to see the band. Van Scoy Diamond's carries a wide variety of the very popular diamond solitaire. Proposing with the solitaire allows for the proposer to have that special ring that is expected, but also comes with the value that the couple can later return to find a set that best fits their idea, or simply pick out a band and leave the solitaire as is, making it a very versatile purchase. Here is one example, a petite, engraved, solitaire semi-mount engagement ring. For only $820.00 you can buy this setting, then search in-store or on-line for a diamond that can be mounted in the ring; thereby giving you the best value for your buying power as you can choose a diamond cut that best fits your budget. Another hip celeb to get engaged is Christina Aguilera. Her beau, Matthew Rutler, whom she met while filming on the set of Burlesque where he was a production assistant, proposed with a very specially designed ring. According to a source, Rutler has been designing the ring for nearly a year, carefully choosing each stone designing the setting to represent their relationship over the past three years and the expectation of their future together. “Every single placement of each stone has a reason and meaning,” gushes the source. For example, the band intertwines the diamonds, with an infinity pattern, coupled with the size of the shank represents how their paths have crossed and their relationship has grown stronger. Some special features cannot be seen by others. “There are nine special multi-color gemstones that you cannot see. They all symbolize something meaningful to the couple. Christina is very spiritual and having the stones touch her actual skin will emit positive energies surrounding her at all times. They represent things like love, protection and healing.” Rutler was inspired by pieces he knew Aguilera already adored, and incorporated those designs into one uniform look for her engagement ring.

While this is the third marriage for Robin, it will be Ben's first. Robin first displayed her engagement ring at the Diane Furstenburg's 'Journey of a Dress' event, her ring this time around is a simple gold design, and appears devoid of gems. This is a great example of breaking with tradition, you don't have to have diamond's, many people who wish to go to a true vintage style engagement ring use an alternate gemstone or no stone at all.
