First Look at Zooey Deschanel’s Engagement Ring

zooeyring

Zooey Deschanel offered us a brief glimpse at her diamond engagement ring yesterday when leaving a pilates class in Beverly Hills. The impressive rock on the solitaire ring seems to be an around 3-4 round cut diamond. Hard to tell really, because photos are blurry and from a good distance, as Deschanel is known for her secrecy when it comes to her private life. The soon-to-be-mother actress was covering her baby bump until very recently, but she seems to be comfortable with causal styles that reveal her pregnancy nowadays.

The New Girl actress announced her engagement with producer Jacob Pechenik in January, about a week after they broke the happy news about her pregnancy. The 35 year old star was excited to share their happiness: “Jacob and I are over the moon. We are so excited to meet our little one.” Now that engagement news is out, fans are ecstatic about a wedding date. Since there is no word on that so far, maybe Deschanel is waiting for their baby to be the flower girl or ring bearer on their happy day.

Sotheby’s announced that the diamond is the only one of its kind for over 100ct range.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter were the couple of the night at the Oscars

Benedict-Cumberbatch-and-Sophie-Hunter

Yesterday all the eyes were on the celebrities walking down the red carpet at the 87th Academy Awards ceremony. We saw beautiful dresses, elegant hairs, handsome suits, and lovely jewelry pieces. Of all the amazing couples we saw gracing the ceremony one was just more stunning than all the rest: The newly weds Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter! Benedict was wearing a white tuxedo jacket which he contrasted with a black bow tie. Expecting soon-to-be-mother Sophie glowed in a daring red dress, complete with golden strapped heels and a gold clutch.

Couples surprise Valentine’s day wedding is still a mystery but we find out new details as anonymous insiders reveal the well hidden secrets of the ceremony. The last big revelation was the best man: TV judge Robert Rinder! Long-time pals were always close, even before they found fame. Cumberbatch also officiated Judge Rinder’s wedding to Seth Cumming in Ibiza in 2013. Although it was rumored that Tom Hiddleston or Martin Freeman was the best man, it turned out Freeman couldn’t make it to the nuptials, while Hiddleston was only one of the distinguished guests.

Cumberbatches exchanged vows at the Church of St. Peter and St. Paul in Mottistone, England, a medieval church dating back to the 12th century. The little church in the Isle of Wight has a capacity of 100 people most, so the wedding guests were very few lucky select friends and family. 38 year old Oscar nominated actor and his 36 year old wife continued the celebration at a reception at adjacent Mottistone Manor after exchanging vows. More guests joined the couple at the reception, including Cumberbatch’s Sherlock nemesis, Andrew Scott, Guy Garvey, the lead singer of Elbow, playwright Polly Stenham, actor Tobias Menzies and pianist James Rhodes.

The happiness of the newly weds continued at the Oscars ceremony Sunday night. They looked both sophisticated and radiant. One could easily tell the honeymoon has not been over yet.

See Lady Gaga’s Breathtaking Engagement Ring!

gaga1

On Valentine’s day, Taylor Kinney got down on one knee to propose to his long time girlfriend Lady Gaga, the diva of pop music. His choice of engagement ring was anything but ordinary: A huge solitaire heart shape diamond ring with pave accent stones. The 28 year old singer said yes, and posted a nice picture of couple’s hands with her engagement ring at the spotlight on Instagram for our pleasure. The caption says: “He gave me his heart on Valentine’s Day, and I said YES!”

Lady Gaga, the Italian-American whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, met her fiance on the stage of her music video You & I four years ago. The couple has been inseparable since then. Gaga later revealed she was wearing her mother’s wedding dress in the music video, as if it was a sign of the future to come!

The designer of the unique heart shape engagement ring Lorraine Schwartz has revealed the estimates circulating online for the ring doesn’t come close to the real value of the ring. “The stone is big and quite beautiful, and actually more expensive than some of the estimates I have read,” the jewelry designer of stars commented. “It’s a challenge to get an excellent heart shape with perfections–the shoulders of the gem have to be totally symmetrical; Lady Gaga’s is all that.”

Would You Like Maroon 5 To Be Your Wedding Band?

maroon5

While Maroon 5’s single Sugar climbed up to number 6 spot on Billboard Top 100 list, its upbeat music video is going strong for over 100 million views! That’s no surprise you find out after watching the fun and heart warming video, featuring Maroon 5 as a wedding band, crashing real weddings in South California and giving the newly weds and the guests the surprise of their lifetime.

sugar

The strength of the music video is the spontaneity: Instead of following a script, the band members drive across L.A. and hit every wedding they possibly can, as the lead singer Adam Levine puts it at the beginning of the film. The video was shot on December 6, 2014 on a sunny SoCal day by Wedding Crashers director David Dobkin, and the band popped up at the stage of each wedding where the actual wedding band was set to play. Of course the reactions of the brides were just priceless.

couple

People magazine’s 2013 sexiest man alive Adam Levine called it “an out of body experience.” The 35-year old musician stated: “I had no idea I would be affected by the overwhelming reactions we received from the couples and guests. Being able to create an unforgettable experience for several people was the highlight of it all.”

We have to agree with Levine: Not only having Maroon 5 as your band to play on your special day is amazing, but being featured in their music video is beyond extraordinary.

Diamond Encrusted Gold Cleats For Golden Boy Cristiano Ronaldo

ronaldo1

Nike has a special treat for Cristiano Ronaldo: To celebrate his third Ballon d’Or win, the soccer super star will be wearing diamond encrusted gold shoes custom made for him! Ronaldo won the prestigious award for the third time in a row and cemented his title as the best male soccer player in the world. The 29 year old star scored 52 goals in 43 games in 2014, beating Lionel Messi again in the race to be the best of the best.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Ronaldo will wear his golden shoes against Atletico Madrid on Thursday in the Copa del Rel. The dazzling cleats that will be on the spotlight at Santiago Bernabeu stadium even has a special name: Mercurial CR7 Rare Gold. Nike’s official website states: “Gold was selected as the main color on the boot because gold is earned. Ronaldo earned his golden award with tremendous play for club and country. As a tribute to Ronaldo’s work ethic, Nike added a special touch to the Mercurial CR7 Rare Gold. For the first time in Nike history, micro-diamonds have been applied by hand to the CR7 logo of the boot. As the diamonds are refined and the details sharpened, tiny pieces are cut away, leaving micro-diamonds behind as evidence of work in progress. The commitment to keep chipping away at something already impressive reminded Nike’s design team of Ronaldo’s work ethic. While many see Ronaldo as the best in the world, he sees room for improvement.”

A Heartwarming Holiday Story

sarings

When Salvation Army Boston opened one of its trademark red kettles outside North Station last month, they were surprised to find a pair of rings with a letter. The letter was written by an anonymous widow who wanted to donate her engagement ring along with her late husband’s wedding band to the charity, so they can sell the rings to buy gifts for poor kids for holidays. Her note says: “I’m hoping there’s someone out there who made lots of money this year and will buy the ring for 10 times its worth. After all, there’s no price on love or the sentimental value of this ring. But money will help the kids.”

salvation army boston

The letter and the act of compassion touched many, but especially one former Salvation Army bell ringer, who purchased the rings for $21,000, 10 times the estimated value of the pair of rings. And the story doesn’t end here: She explained to the charity that she too lost a beloved husband and she wishes the rings be returned to the original owner ‘who gave them up in memory of her husband for the sake of children at Christmas.’

Massachusetts Salvation Army Major David Davis said: “One expression of love has inspired another grand gesture to help those in need during the holiday season. Because of these two amazing individuals, our Salvation Army officers, staff and individuals will be able to extend our outreach to the many families and children in need. We are dedicated to fulfilling the sentiment behind these two heartfelt donations.”
