While it may be tradition for the proposer to present their other half with an engagement ring when popping the question, sometimes couples like to embark on the design process together or leave the decision down to the bride. From supermodel Emily Ratajkowski to DOI's Myleene Klass, these celebrity brides designed their own engagement rings – and they are out of this world!
Emily Ratajkowski's ring is extremely unique
It is no secret that Emily Ratajkowski's proposal was a little unconventional. When Sebastian Bear-McClard took the model out for dinner, he seized the opportunity in a romantic setting to ask for her hand in marriage. He had no ring to present, but when he fashioned one out of the paperclip which held the bill together, Emily simply couldn’t say no!
She ended up with a bespoke Alison Lou two-stone design featuring a princess and a pear-cut diamond. The couple continued to defy tradition when Emily got married in a jumpsuit at City Hall, New York.
