Heather Dubrow’s Wedding Ring & Engagement Ring: Photo

Both Parts 1 and 2 of The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 17 reunion were filled with fireworks, to say the least, with dramatic rifts between castmates and a few bombshells we definitely weren’t expecting.

Another dramatic part of the reunion? The ladies’ gorgeous, sexy-“chic” styles, including Heather Dubrow’s black cutout Chiara Boni dress she noted to BravoTV.com was giving “classic Heather vibes.” 

There was another “classic Heather” moment we had to take note of, and yes, it involved diamonds. 

Heather Dubrow’s massive diamond engagement ring 

On Part 2 of the RHOC Season 17 reunion, Heather’s diamond engagement ring made a jaw-dropping cameo when Tamra Judge asked Gina Kirschenheiter if she and Travis Mullen would ever get married.

“If I get a rock like this,” Gina quipped, pointing to the enormous diamond sparkler on Heather’s finger. Cut to the beautiful piece that definitely puts stars in our eyes. 

Even Tamra couldn’t deny being impressed by the ring, telling her fellow ‘Wives, “We all want a rock like that,” which caused Heather to chuckle. 

Heather Dubrow’s update on her next house 

In addition to showing off her fabulous fashions at the reunion, Heather gave an update on her current living situation. 

When host Andy Cohen concluded Part 2 of the reunion by asking the cast members what they were going to miss about the season. 

While newcomer Jennifer Pedranti noted, “I’m never gonna have another first experience like this ever again,” Gina stated she was looking forward to moving past some things rather than missing them. Then, after Heather shared her thoughts on “sisterhood,” Gina stepped in with another idea: “I kind of take it back, because I will miss your house,” Gina said to Heather.

To that, Heather declared, “I have news: There’s a better one coming.”

The Real Reason Why Meghan Markle Hasn’t Been Wearing Her Engagement Ring

The Duchess of Sussex was spotted without her three-stone diamond sparkler during a lunch date with friends last week.

On November 17, 2017, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made their first debut as an engaged couple after the Duke of Sussex popped the question with a three-stone diamond engagement ring. Ever since then, the Duchess of Sussex has almost always worn the sparkler—no matter the occasion. However, on August 15, 2023, Markle was spotted without the valuable piece of jewelry on her left ring finger, which sparked rumors about the royal couple’s current marital status. Markle was enjoying a lunch date with two of her friends, Cleo Wade and Kadi Lee, celebrating a belated birthday lunch, which was most likely for the duchess, who turned 42 on August 4, 2023. A photo taken of the group shows that Markle’s diamond rock was absent, replaced by a gold band. A few days after the luncheon, on August 18, 2023, an insider revealed the real reason why Markle ditched her engagement ring, and it has nothing to her marriage to Harry. The source tells Page Six that the ring is simply “being fixed.”

Louella Anderson, cofounder of So Synced, markle-ditches-156k-engagement-30732618″ data-ylk=”slk:told;elm:context_link;itc:0″ class=”link “told The Mirror that there could be other reasons why Meghan decided to ditch her engagement ring. “Meghan Markle has always had her own unique sense of style,” she says. “It’s possible that her decision to change or remove the engagement ring reflects her evolving taste or desire for something different. She’s not over the top about her jewelry and usually chooses to keep her look quite simple and classic. Taking off the ring could be her way of expressing this personal preference for a less flashy look. Meghan’s engagement ring was particularly large and may

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.

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

13 Best Engagement Rings Sure to Elicit a “Yes”Hearst Owned

“Hearst Magazines and Yahoo may earn commission or revenue on some items through these links.”

One of the most important things you’ll ever buy is an engagement ring. It’s a piece of jewelry that’ll change the trajectory of your life, welcome in a new chapter, and symbolize the start of forever. So obviously, you should choose your engagement ring wisely.

Here’s the thing about engagement rings—they’re far more crucial than wedding rings. Wedding rings can be swapped for newer or different styles in 10, 20, 50 years; you’ll still be married! But you won’t still be engaged (I hope). This is a one and done ring—no do-overs for the piece of jewelry on your partner’s finger that’ll prompt countless “So how did you pop the question?” prompts. The engagement ring you wear and the engagement ring your partner wears should be perfect—each to your own style, a story of your unique love, a memory you’ll always cherish.

That being said, the world of engagement rings is a scary place. There are a lot of options to consider—what metal do you want for the band? And how thick should it be? Do you want diamonds or gemstones? Does your partner? How many carats? What shape? Should it be a halo ring, or a cathedral one? Ugh. Eternal love is beautiful, but to get to eternity, you have to answer a lot of these questions. It’ll all work out in the end, though—you, your partner, the perfect rings for you both. To get you started, there’s an assortment of the best engagement rings on the market—of all shapes, sizes, and styles—below. Peruse for inspo, or pull the trigger before you pop the question.

It came as The Sun revealed Christine had accused Paddy of flirting with lookalike blonde TV star.

A source said: “Christine and Paddy spent weeks of hiding it – but she couldn’t keep it up. She was in the driving seat when it came to finally ending their marriage.”

The source added of the couple, who have three young children: “Christine and Paddy ended their marriage early in June.

“She made it very clear to those close to her that it was over. Paddy, however, wanted to put on a united front.

“He wanted to control the narrative and Christine felt like she had no option but to go along with it.”
