Hayley Atwell stuns in black gown as she shows off her huge engagement ring at the Mission: Impossible 7 after party

Hayley Atwell’s fiancé, Ned Wolfgang Kelly, accompanied her to the after-party of the star-studded premiere of Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part One on Thursday.

The 41-year-old actress donned an eye-catching black voluminous gown for the occasion, with her engagement ring prominently on display.

Hayley Atwell’s soon-to-be husband, Ned Wolfgang Kelly, followed closely behind her as she entered London’s Cafe Royal for the after-party, after she posed alone on the red carpet.

The couple announced their engagement on Instagram in April, with Ned sharing the news with his followers.

Hayley Atwell proudly displayed her stunning engagement ring as she promoted her role in the latest Mission Impossible movie on the promotional circuit.

Despite attending the premiere the previous night, the actress looked radiant as she headed to Global Studios to appear on the Capital FM show.

She donned chic navy blue flared trousers paired with a matching shirt, red platform wedges, and a clutch bag for the occasion.

Ned took to Instagram to announce their engagement, disclosing that he proposed to Hayley during a romantic trip to Venice.

He wrote: “Lucky me. Arrived in Venice at 10am, around midday the love of my life and I got engaged in the kitchen of this strange apartment surrounded by ducks, with a bloke outside the window murdering “My Way” on the accordion.”

“A perfect start to the rest of our lives together. I’d never had any interest in getting married… until I met this extraordinary woman. Happy as a clam.”

Bethenny Frankel has never been one to hold back

The 52-year-old TV personality fired back at multiple fans after she was hit with criticism over flaunting her massive engagement ring from fiancé Paul Bernon. The drama unfolded on Tuesday, June 20, after Frankel posted an Instagram video that showed her gushing over the huge rock, which is reportedly 10 carats. 

“Kind of scared about what this might mean for me,” the former Real Housewives of New York City star captioned the social media post. In the comments section fans ripped into Frankel, calling her “showy” and “too braggy.” 

“I have a huge diamond too but I’m never showy about it or try to show off what I own,” one social media user wrote, to which Frankel replied, “Good for you. You may also not have a sense of humor, so you can’t show that off.” 

Frankel proceeded to respond to a different fan who shared, “Love Bethenny. Just a little ick here. It’s beautiful. It’s very, very large. I’m happy for her and she can carry it off, but this is too braggy. It’s not safe to post. Look at what happened to Kim.” (Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in October 2016 while in Paris for Fashion Week. The thieves stole all of her jewelry, including her $4 million engagement ring from then-husband Kanye West.) Frankel asserted, however, that her jewel is secured in a vault and once again encouraged her followers to have a sense of humor.

The Skinny Girl founder doubled down on her stance further after a third critic added, “Money talks … Wealth whispers. Eeek.” 

“It does … not on social media,” Frankel clapped back. “This culture celebrates multi-million dollar weddings in

Lightbox Now Offers Lab-Grown Diamond Engagement Rings

In a move sure to further disrupt the jewelry industry already disrupted by consumers’ rapid turn to lab-grown diamonds, De Beers has introduced engagement rings under its lab-grown jewelry brand Lightbox, a category it once reserved exclusively for its Forevermark natural, mined diamonds. Now it offers a selection of 16 lab-grown diamond engagement rings priced from $500 to $5,000.

While the company positions the move as a limited market test, it is groundbreaking for De Beers, whose fortunes have been inextricably linked to natural diamond futures.

De Beers is the world’s leading natural diamond company, with its reach into diamond exploration, mining, grading, marketing and retail. It singlehandedly made the diamond engagement ring the symbol of everlasting love in its famed 1947 “A diamond is forever” ad campaign.

Into The Lab-Grown Diamond Fray

When De Beers first dipped its toes into the lab-grown jewelry market with Lightbox in 2018, it was positioned as fun, pretty, affordable fashion jewelry that “may not be forever, but is perfect for right now,” said Bruce Cleaver, then-CEO De Beers Group and now its co-chairman.

At the time, LGD were reserved for earrings and necklaces set with an emphasis on colored stones, but also available in clear-white diamonds.

Initial prices were set at $800 per carat, exclusive of the setting, and the company has held the line on per-carat price since then. However, it has since added a finest grade above its standard offering, priced at $1,500 per carat for LGD stones of finer cut and clarity with the clearest color rating.

It stepped deeper into the bridal waters

Sydney Sweeney spotted wearing engagement ring again amidst cheating rumors

Published: 2023-06-16T04:34:36

  ❘   Updated: 2023-06-16T04:34:48

Sydney Sweeney has put her engagement ring back on, defying rumors of a crumbling romance with fiancé Jonathan Davino.

Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney found herself in the middle of a cheating scandal earlier this year while filming Anyone but You in Australia.

Despite her engagement to restauranter Jonathan Davino, Sweeney was photographed getting a little too close to her costar, Glen Powell. However, it seems the internet may have jumped to conclusions about the engagement being called off.

Sweeney has put the engagement ring back on, heading out for a date night in New York City with Davino.

The news comes after Sweeney was seen on numerous occasions without the diamond bedazzling her finger.

Rumors of a possible relationship between Sweeney and Powell first started after they were photographed packing on the PDA while filming on set. And when Powell’s then-girlfriend Gigi Paris unfollowed Sweeney, the internet went wild.

“I mean she did play Cassie a little too well in Euphoria,” one person tweeted, referring to Sweeney’s role in the show as Cassie Howard.

In the HBO show, Sweeney’s character gets involved with her best friend’s ex. Fans were quick to spot the poetic irony that Sweeney might be following suit.

But with new photos emerging, it seems any romantic turmoil has now been put to rest.

Sweeney and Davino looked comfortable in coordinated outfits as they took to the city, setting the record straight that their engagement is still on.

When speaking to Cosmopolitan back in February, Sweeney said,

De Beers’ Lightbox Launches Test-run of Lab-grown Diamond Engagement Rings

It appears that De Beers has spotted the writing on the wall in an increasingly crowded lab-grown diamond market.

The diamond behemoth has begun testing engagement rings under its lab-grown subsidiary, Lightbox, after years of avoiding the category. It is understood that the company had long tried to maintain natural diamonds’ position as engagement ring stones, while attempting to silo lab-grown diamonds as fashion jewelry.

More from WWD

De Beers established Lightbox in 2018 in order to help steer the lab-grown diamond narrative. It set a strict per-carat pricing model for the stones (pro-rated at $800 per carat, regardless of the stone’s size or color) in an attempt to lead the industry’s treatment of lab diamonds.

As newly instated Lightbox chief executive officer Antoine Borde told WWD earlier this month, the company is focused on designs intended for self-purchasing and personal expression.

“We are pursuing the positioning of the brand around fashion, freedom, fun — it’s a good dynamic that we are seeing this happen,” Borde said.

Since its launch Lightbox had sold loose lab-grown stones that could be set as engagement rings, but the company had never sold ready-made engagement rings as part of its own distribution.

Now as more and more players enter the lab-grown arena, it appears that De Beers and Lightbox had little choice but to test the engagement category.

The company’s website has launched a limited series of 16 solitaire rings — all priced at $5,000 or less, with the average hovering around $2,500. They are offered with stones from one to two carats and come in settings that range from very simple gold bands to more elaborate halo styles, set alongside smaller pavé lab-grown stones.

Borde said in a statement: “As part of Lightbox’s promise to bring transparency to lab-grown

Best Engagement Rings 2023 – Forbes Vetted

Every couple has their own unique style. The best engagement rings capture your personality in bold or subtle ways, depending on what look you go for: The first step is figuring out the cut of stone you’d like—round, cushion, emerald—from the many options out there. The cut, or shape, brings out features of the diamond itself, including its clarity, brilliance or craftsmanship, and it’s what sets each ring apart.

If you’re not a gemologist, it’s easy to get lost in all the facets of diamond research. With that in mind, we had an independent diamond expert explain what makes each cut special and then found stunning engagement rings that highlight the shape beautifully so you can find a look that matches your style and has sentimental value. From classic cushions to unique emeralds to timeless princess cuts, here are the best engagement rings. (And for more inspiration, we also rounded up the best place to shop for diamonds and the best lab-grown diamonds from top jewelers).


Engraving Offered: Yes | 360 Degree Viewing: Yes | Shipping: Free, fast shipping (speed depends on ring cost) | Return policy: Free 30-day returns | Virtual consultations: Yes

Round cut diamonds are one of the most popular because it has the most facets, and is therefore, “the most sparkly,” says gemologist and jewelry designer Ashley Fox of Ashley Fox Collection. “It’s the only cut that gets a cut grade, which indicates superior sparkle and craftsmanship of a diamond. This is typically the most expensive cut because you lose the most rough when cutting it.” This particular setting from Blue Nile is both timeless and simple, letting the stone itself take center

The 10 Biggest, Sparkliest Engagement Ring Trends of 2023

According to a literal diamond expert.

&lt;p&gt;Getty Images&lt;/p&gt;

An engagement ring represents a lifelong commitment — to your partner and to a piece of jewelry you’ll wear for the rest of your life together. While the world of engagement rings;elm:context_link;itc:0″ class=”link “engagement rings doesn’t exactly follow the fast and furious pace of seasonal fashion trends, it does evolve. Having a sense of the trends that do arise can help you decide which ring might be right for you.

We consulted with Kristina Buckley, Managing Director of the Natural Diamond Council, the industry authority and resource on natural diamonds, to get a read on what’s trending in the world of engagement rings for 2023. The recurring theme that kept popping up? Uniqueness and rule-breaking. There’s not one dominant trend in engagement rings these days, because everyone seems to want a ring that’s unique, personal to them, and reflective of their individual style and values.

That means a lot of the old rules are out the window. Three months salary as a standard budget? Nope, set whatever budget feels right to you. Grading diamonds on a traditional scale? Nah, imperfections can be part of the draw. “We always suggest looking ‘beyond the 4 Cs,’ says Buckley, referring to cut, color, clarity, and carats. “Once you fall in love with a stone, any inclusions or color grading it may have on paper doesn’t matter.” Wearing your ring on your left ring finger? Not necessary if you’d prefer somewhere else. You get the gist: Anything goes!

Below, learn about  a few of the trends Buckley says couples are embracing in 2023, from “moval” cuts to akimbo settings to salt and pepper diamonds.
