8 Rings Inspired by Lily Collins’ Engagement Ring

The perfect ring for an English rose.

Congratulations to actor Lily Collins and writer-director Charlie McDowell on their engagement! Lily and Charlie announced their engagement on Instagram last week after a proposal that took place on a mountain hike in New Mexico. The naturally beautiful setting was an ideal backdrop for Lily’s completely unique engagement ring.

Lily’s ring hosts a one-of-a-kind cushion shaped rose cut diamond bezel set in a textured gold ring featuring tapered shoulders that mimic a classic split shank ring setting. Rose cut diamonds and gemstones are a somewhat antique style with old world charm. Gemstones cut in this style have distinctive faceting that appeals to many, but they are also cut in a way that prioritizes clarity over sparkle or brilliance – leading to a slightly glassy or crystalline look.

Bezel settings like Lily’s are an increasingly popular choice because it is the most secure way to set a diamond or gemstone. Unlike traditional rings where the center gem is held in by prongs, bezel settings wrap precious metal completely around the center gem to hold it securely in place.

If you love the look of Lily’s unique ring as much as we do, explore similar styles below!

Imogen Diamond Engagement Ring

This stellar ring features a center gem bezel-set and slightly lofted within an intricate milgrained halo for a brilliant sparkle. The distinctive and beautifully detailed gallery lends subtle but eye-catching appeal.

Margot Engagement Ring

This beautiful, contemporary ring features a bezel-set center gem with milgrain accents for a unique look. The elevated bezel allows for maximum light play and accommodates a variety of wedding band styles to tuck underneath.

Luna Engagement Ring

This beautiful, modern ring features a bezel-set center gem with a sleek band for a contemporary look.

Reverie Engagement Ring

At once feminine and contemporary, this ring divides into graceful ribbons of precious metal that intertwine and embrace the center gemstone, securing it with claw prongs.

Lena Diamond Engagement Ring

Two glittering accent diamonds are nestled between strands of metal in this sophisticated and sparkling split shank look.

Cava Engagement Ring

At once classic and delicate, this ring divides into whimsical ribbons from pinched shoulders that intertwine to embrace the center gemstone in a beautifully beaded gallery.

Cuvee Diamond Engagement Ring

This stunning ring features detailed beadwork supporting effervescent round diamonds that flow up to the center gem. Sculpted beading continues along the gallery wire to accentuate this whimsical look.

Insignia Engagement Ring

A stunning gemstone is the center piece for this modern signet-inspired ring. Like with Lily’s ring, the shoulders taper away from the center stone to wrap the finger in lustrous precious metal.
