Back in 2018, Emily and Sebastian Bear-McClard tied the knot. However, the supermodel was not in a hurry to show the ring to the public. She published the first photo of the jewelry a few months later. The producer proposed with Toi et Moi ring, which means “you and me” in French.

Joe Jonas proposed to Sophie Turner in 2017. The couple had two wedding ceremonies in 2019, and soon after, the actress posted a photo with the ring on her Instagram. It features sparkling pear-shaped diamond ring set on a double pavé band. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, after all.
Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe got engaged in 1954. Joe wanted to impress the queen of men’s hearts, so he abandoned the classic design. He chose a platinum eternity band set with 35 baguette-cut stones. It was a brilliant choice: this ring was guaranteed to light up a room.
Zoё Kravitz announced her engagement to actor Karl Glusman, when she was interviewed by Rolling Stone magazine in 2018. When Josh Eels asked her about her ring, Kravitz gave a reason she kept quiet about that news. “I haven’t told anyone yet—I mean, I haven’t told the world. I wanted to keep it private,” she told the magazine. Glusman proposed with a ring which appeared to be a round center stone surrounded by smaller accent stones.
John F. Kennedy proposed to Jacqueline Bouvier in 1953 with a magnificent ring by Van Cleef & Arpels. This jewelry was truly unlike any other. It featured a 2.88-carat diamond and a 2.84-carat emerald with diamond accents surrounding the stones. The iconic ring was estimated to be worth more than one million dollar.
