Some celebs go for classic engagement rings, some want a glamorous engagement ring, and some favor unique engagement rings. While ultra-glamorous celebrity engagement rings (which usually feature massive white diamonds) tend to get talked about more, in this post we’re looking at an under-appreciated celebrity engagement ring category: unique celebrity engagement rings.
Unique engagement rings are glamorous in an unexpected way. They feature unexpected silhouettes and colorful gemstones. In this post, we’re taking a look at 10 of our favorite unique celebrity engagement rings, organized by their type of unique center stone. Read on to see the best of unique celebrity engagement rings!

5. Jessica Simpson

Emerald Engagement Rings
8. Halle Berry
First up in the emerald engagement ring category, we have Halle Berry’s yellow gold and emerald ring. Halle Berry’s ring, which is modern yet has an antique look, was created for Berry by Parisian jeweler Robert Mazio. It features a four carat emerald at its center and, supposedly, it contains hidden codes that only the wearer can see.
9. Olivia Wilde
Though Olivia Wilde’s engagement ring has a diamond as its center stone, its extremely eye-catching and unique, thanks to its unusual halo setting. Wilde’s engagement ring has an emerald halo setting, which her husband Jason Sudeikis said he selected because the emeralds reminded him of Wilde’s beautiful green eyes.
10. Jackie Kennedy
Jackie Kennedy’s engagement ring is one of the most famous engagement rings in modern history. When John F. Kennedy proposed to Jackie O, he presented her with an engagement ring with two center stones: a 2 carat emerald cut diamond and a two carat emerald cut diamond. While this ring originally featured baguette diamonds along its band, Jackie Kennedy had the band revamped during her time as First Lady, swapping out the baguette diamonds for marquise and round brilliant diamonds.
