The Jewelry Insider

July 19, 2013

There’s been a celebrity engagement ring dry spell so far this summer until (drumroll….) this week two heavy hitters announced they’re officially off the market: Fashion Police‘s purple-haired pixie, Kelly Osbourne, is engaged to vegan chef boyfriend, Mathew Mosshart, and (sorry, ladies) Maroon 5‘s Adam Levine proposed to his Victoria’s Secret-model girlfriend, Behati Prinsloo.

Kelly Osbourne, no fashion wall-flower, designed her own engagement ring to match an earring worn by her rocker father, Ozzy.

“I designed it to look like an earring that my father wore,” she gushed to Hello! Magazine. “I used to hold my finger up to his ear when I was little and say, ‘I want a ring like that.’ Now I have one!”

And just when you think Adam Levine is going to go for the stereotypical solitaire to match his stereotypical choice in soul mate? He throws us a curve ball by offering up a stunning vintage sparkler from the 1930s.

Says Prinsloo of her ring finger bling to Extra!,

“It’s from the 1930s. I was very giddy. I was speechless. It was a beautiful moment.”

It’s hard for me to find the right words to describe how I’m feeling about your good fortune, Behati.

I WILL say that Adam Levine is on to something: Vintage jewelry is still trending after over a year on the hit list.  Check out the Very Vintage Collection I curated on Jewelry.com, which has some vintage-inspired rocks on the block that will take the sting out of yet another Victoria’s Secret model having all the fun.

This vintage-inspired 1/3 Carat Diamond Flower Ring in 10K Gold doesn’t come with a Maroon 5 frontman, but it also doesn’t judge your singing voice and expect you to wear wings down a runway in your skivvies. AND you can drop the price from $1,279 to $299 with code PREMIER at checkout (shhhhhhh!). Celebrate!

What do you guys think of the celebrity rocks? Weigh in!

Anna Paquin’s Wedding Ring Revealed!


Sookie Stackhouse (aka Anna Paquin) said ‘I do’ to her favorite vampire, Stephen ‘SSSSooookie No!” Moyer this weekend in a Malibu wedding fit for all creatures alive and undead.

Her wedding ring was spotted by the paps today as she flitted about town running errands with her mom. The vintage style was custom-made by jeweler Cathy Waterman, who also designed Moyer’s simple wedding band (spotted here while he was skateboarding in LA).

Vampires skateboard?

Vintage diamond engagement rings must be popular with the blood-thirsty set. This vintage style was designed by Twilight author, Stephanie Meyer, as a replica of the ring Edward gives to Bella in the series.


To get a live glimpse of Anna’s rocks, the happy couple will be presenting at the 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards Sunday with True Blood costar Alexander Skarsgard. (Come tweet with me and a bunch of other fab jewelry bloggers during the red carpet shenanigans – using #emmyjewelry hashtag)

Here’s hoping they all come out like this!
