For a next-level original artist, performer and style icon, Lady Gaga became engaged in a surprisingly conventional way. On Valentine’s Day her actor love Taylor Kinney (star of Chicago Fire) proposed with a diamond ring, and they celebrated the engagement by dining in the New York restaurant owned by Gaga’s family. But the ring he offered was both completely unique and incredibly romantic: A dazzling heart-shaped diamond atop a band featuring the letters T and S and a heart symbol spelled out with diamonds (as you might know, Gaga’s real name is Stefani).
Heart-Shaped Diamond Engagement Rings
Although not nearly as common as round and square shaped diamonds, heart-shaped diamonds make a dazzling and very romantic choice for engagement rings. Jewelry designer Lorraine Schwartz, who created the ring, told InStyle, “It’s a challenge to get an excellent heart shape with perfections — the shoulders of the gem have to be totally symmetrical; Lady Gaga’s is all that.” Gaga’s ring has been estimated to be worth half a million dollars (and Schwartz told InStyle, “The stone is big and quite beautiful, and actually more expensive than some of the estimates I have read.”). But gorgeous heart-shaped diamonds can be found in a wide range of sizes, to fit any budget.
