Lordess of the Rings

With two BIG engagements taking place this past week, I wanted to see which ring you ladies would prefer if your man asked you to marry him?

Ring #1 {Kate Middleton's ring from Prince William}

Why I love it? I love it because it's absolutely exquisite. It's a family heirloom (hello, Princess Diana wore it). Did you know that Prince Harry requested this ring after his mother's death, but gave it to Prince William to propose to Kate Middleton.

Ring #2 {Jessica Simpson's ring from Eric Johnson}

Why I don't love it? It is gold and I don't wear much gold jewelry. And I think the side diamonds are way too big to be surrounding the middle stone.


So, ladies, which one would you choose?

Definitely Kate's. It's gorgeous. And I don't like gold, either.

Candice Lynn said...

Kate's for sure! I love sapphires anyway but that one is just to die for. Plus I think it is SUPER cool that he gave her his late mother's ring (regardless of who his mother was).

I am obsessed with this wedding already.

Molly said...

Definitely Kate's ring. Do NOT love Jessica's ring. I think it looks semi-fake from the pics, and I'm with you 100% on the gold, I don't wear gold at all.

Happy Friday! WHOO HOOO!

Kates allll the way! And love that it was his moms.

Kates. I've been in love with it since it was Dianas' and have wanted a sapphire engagement ring for as long as I could remember.

Miss Southern Vol said...

Umm definitely Kate's! Hello blue Sapphire and diamonds and princess Diana's I mean what is there NOT to love about this ring. Jessica's ring- that would NOT do

B said...

Definitely Kate's ring! I cannot stand Jessica Simpsons's for some reason... haha

Aly @ Analyze This said...

Kate's ring!! It is just an engagement ring ... I'm sure he'll upgrade her to something sparkly after the wedding!!

JSimp's ring - way disappointed in it!

Ashley said...

I loooove Kate's ring! Definitely not a fan of Jessica's at all. I think a big part of it is the gold. Not cute.

Kate said...

Definitely Kate! It's so elegant.

Tiffany said...

Kate's for sure! Hello Princess Diana's ring....come on!! I do not like Jessica's at all!

Laura Brown said...

I would love Kate's!! There is nothing more special then getting the ring that was his Moms. And how sweet of Harry!

TupeloLove said...

Have a great weekend!

Kate's sapphire ring! It's stunning! Jessica's is yellow gold, ewww!

Beth Ann said...

Kate's! BUT...I would be SCARED TO DEATH of losing it!!! I am quite disappointed in Jessica's ring...but hey, as long as she loves it. ;)

Kate's! Hands down! I think Jessica is headed to divorce #2.

MissBrightside said...

Kate's ring is stunning. I hate to criticize Jessica's ring, but it looks like a high school promise ring. Especially when you compare it to the LUSCIOUS ring she got from Nick, it is sad.

Jessica said...

Kate > Jessica.
No doubt.

Jen said...

I love Kate Middleton, and to own a ring that was once Princess Diana's? Um, yes. Please.

And Jessica's isn't very pretty at all. Her engagement coming a week after Nick and Vanessa's is just too suspect, anyway.

black tag diaries said...

i think anything family heirloom gets extra points automatically... and i can't say i'd complain if i get either one of those bad boys... but i'm with you, kate's ring is my favorite.

ps... totally just saw your post from yesterday about jessica's holiday album.. will definitely be needing that... for sure.

Erica said...

Kate's Ring. Jessica bought her own ring from what i hear and its not even as good as the one Nick got her.i don't really like it.

Mrs. Werginz said...

Kate's! I didn't kmnwo that about Harry giving it to William...so dang sweet! Love those British boys! haha I'm not into gold either and I like just a daimond normally but Kate's is such an heirloom that the sapphire is perfect!

Neely said...

I agree with you I love Kates ring and dont like Jess'

Chicago Cuisine Critique said...

While i'm not super big on other stones in place of a diamond for a wedding ring, Princess Diana's ring was gorgeous and with their past, I would be honored to wear it. :) Not a fan of Jessica's ring..

Tiff said...

Kate, Kate Kate! There is no competition! :)

Kerbi said...

Kate's for sure! I'm not a fan of Jessica's ring, although it is pretty hard to find a ring that compares to her first engagement ring!

Kelly's Avenue said...

100% Kate Middleton's ring
she is so beautiful and i cannot wait for the wedding hahaha


Jessica's looks like it came from a gumball machaine it looks fake
and she is sooo jealous b\c nick got engaged

Leslie said...

Kate's is beautiful. The design of it is so pretty. And the fact that it's a family ring is so special.
I am not a fan of Jessica's at all. Red seems like such an aggressive color for an engagement ring stone.

PaigeR530 said...

I'm definitely a fan of Kate's, but not Jessica's. Jessica's looks like something you'd find in a Cracker Jack's box. Not a fan of Jessica's at all. Kate's is SO elegant!

Lauren said...

Neither ring screams "engaged!" to me!

I actually have a replica of Princess Diana's ring that I wear every day (it's obviously smaller!!) and it is the perfect right hand ring. But not engagement ring material! But it is a family heirloom which I LOVE. So, it's ok in my book.

As for Jess' ring... I am not a fan. But I didn't so much LOVE the ring Nick gave her either. The ring itself is ok for an occasion piece, but not your everyday engagement ring. Plus the garnet (ruby?? can't tell the stone) is just too untraditional for me to be an engagement ring.

If I had to pick, I'd say Kate's is best!
