Carey Mulligan in The Great Gatsby
The moment when a loved one proposes is remembered for a lifetime. It is not surprising that these romantic scenes in films also arouse interest among the public, but the directors strive to make the scene spectacular and beautiful. And the main thing in it, of course, is the wedding ring itself! In the new material, we suggest recalling the most memorable screen jewels.
Grace Kelly in High Society (1956)
In this film, Grace Kelly wore a 10.47 carat emerald cut platinum Cartier ring set with two baguette cut diamonds. The cost of a luxury piece of jewelry today is $ 4.5 million. Initially, the actress was supposed to wear a fake ring, but shortly before filming, her fiancé, Prince Rainier III of Monaco, presented her with a real jewel. He was going to propose with another ring, but when he arrived in Hollywood, he realized that the film stars here love impressive diamonds, and bought this Cartier ring.

High Society was one of Kelly's last films before she left Hollywood to become Princess of Monaco.
Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961)
Ironically, Breakfast at Tiffany's is without the famous jewelry brand's ring that many would-be brides around the world dream of. Paul (George Peppard) finds a ring for his beloved in a box with sweets – alas, he has no money for real diamonds, but he orders the engraving in the Tiffany & Co. boutique, which Holly (Audrey Hepburn) dreams of so much. However, for the heroine, it was it in the end that turned out to be the most precious and forced her to reconsider her life. After all, as Holly herself said, wearing diamonds until 40 years old is tasteless.

Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl (1968)
The 1968 film shows the life and career of the real-life comedian Fanny Bryce, who was hugely popular in the early 1900s. And many of the jewelry in the film, including this luxurious ring, were from the personal collection of the actress, because it contained enough antique rings that were quite consistent with the era of the film.

Vivica A. Fox in Independence Day (1996)
It seems that romantic comedies should be the first to feature impressive engagement rings, but one of the most original rings we've seen in the fantasy action movie Independence Day. Stevie (Will Smith) presents Jasmine (Vivica A. Fox) with a ring with two dolphins and one carat cubic zirconia – simple (the ring cost $ 1,200), but creative! Moreover, it is very cute, because the heroine clearly liked dolphins – she wore similar earrings and a pendant. The actress liked the ring so much that after filming the producers decided to give it to her.

Kate Winslet in Titanic (1997)
The main romance line in Titanic is not related to the Art Deco engagement ring worn by Kate Winslet's heroine Rose. Rather, it even acts as some kind of hindrance, but it is definitely difficult not to notice it! It is not for nothing that the hero of Leonardo DiCaprio, after he saved Rosa from falling overboard, ironically remarks that with such a ring she would go to the bottom like a stone.

The filming used a silver ring with a large imitation diamond about a centimeter in diameter, which was framed on the sides by two more baguette-cut imitation diamonds. After filming, the ring used in the film was auctioned for $ 38,000.
Cameron Diaz in Best Friend's Wedding (1997)
Cameron Diaz's engagement ring in this movie featured a classic round diamond in a canal-framed micro-pavé band. It also became the hero of one of the funniest episodes of the film, when the heroine of Julia Roberts secretly tries it on, and then cannot film it.

Thanks to the success of the film, this type of ring became one of the most popular engagement ring styles in the late 90s.

Reese Witherspoon in Stylish Thing (2002)
If there are ideal movie weddings that many dream of repeating in reality, then some will definitely call an episode from the movie “Stylish Thing” with Reese Witherspoon and Patrick Dempsey as an exemplary scene with a proposal. Andrew proposes to Melanie at the Tiffany & Co. in New York, instructing her to choose the ring of her dreams. She opts for a classic Tiffany diamond ring.

Interestingly, this scene came to the screen from real life! The ex-boyfriend of the director's wife Andy Tennant proposed to her in this way. But the gesture, it seems, did not produce the desired effect.
Great offer, but the guy was not the same
– explained the wife of Tennant.

Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde II (2003)
Perhaps no ring on earth could fit Reese Witherspoon's Elle Woods better than this. An oval pink diamond with two side stones was the perfect complement to the heroine's look. By the way, Reese Witherspoon herself had a hand in the design of the ring.

Kate Hudson in Bride Wars (2009)
Soon after discovering the box, Tiffany & Co. in their apartment, a very impatient Liv (Kate Hudson) rushes into Daniel's (Steve Howie) office to ask if he'll be quick to marry her.
Then the heroine receives the coveted Tiffany Novo engagement ring with a 5-carat cushion-cut diamond right in the middle of his office.

Kristen Stewart in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010)
In the film, Edward Cullen (played by Robert Pattinson) proposed to Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) with a Victorian ring that belonged to his mother.

The ring was a long oval framed by oblique rows of glittering round stones. It was gold – thin and narrow, with a fragile golden web around the diamonds,
– the author of the books on which the vampire saga was filmed, Stephenie Meyer, described the decoration.
After filming, one lucky fan managed to get his hands on this ring in 18K white gold with diamond pavé for $ 23,400 – the jewelry was sold at auction.
Sarah Jessica Parker in Sex and the City 2 (2010)
Not only the ring itself, but the entire scene with the proposal that Mr. Big (Chris Noth) makes to Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) can clearly be counted among the most memorable movie moments.
The black diamond ring was truly atypical and clearly gave impetus to a new trend in bridal jewelry. In the film, Carrie asks, “Why black?” To which Mr. Big replies, “Because you don't look like anyone.”

Jewelry designer Itai Malkin worked closely with Sarah Jessica Parker and costume designer Patricia Field to create the 18K white gold ring with a five-carat diamond. And, to the delight of film fans around the world, Malkin later released a limited edition replica of this ring – each costing $ 10,000.
Carey Mulligan in The Great Gatsby (2013)
In the film, Daisy Buchanan (Carey Mulligan) wears a Tiffany & Co. cushion-cut platinum diamond ring that has been valued at a whopping $ 3.9 million. The ring, with its Art Deco geometric shape, was in keeping with the 1920s fashion when the action unfolds and would have been considered incredibly modern then. So it is quite possible to imagine that a girl like Daisy could wear a similar piece of jewelry.

Cate Blanchett in Jasmine (2013)
The massive diamond ring worn by Cate Blanchett's heroine, Jasmine (Upper East Side socialite), was from Fred Leighton in New York. This is one of the top destinations for luxury jewelery aficionados, and vintage jewelery can also be found.

The boutique is known for the fact that this is where Hollywood celebrities often rent jewelry for social events. The company's jewelry has also been used in films such as Marie Antoinette, The Devil Wears Prada, Sex and the City TV series. The total cost of the jewelry, including the ring, that Blanchett wore was in excess of a million dollars, so an armed bodyguard was present on set.
Lady Gaga in the movie A Star is Born (2018)
This ring will not be included in the ratings of the most expensive jewelry, but the scene definitely claims to be one of the most romantic. In the film, while having dinner with close friends, Jack (Bradley Cooper) made an engagement ring from an old twisted guitar string and proposed to Ellie (Lady Gaga). The wedding was just as spontaneous. But if not the luxurious surroundings, then the scene is clearly remembered for its sentimentality.
