The former American alpine ski racer, Lindsey Vonn showed off her emerald engagement ring from her hockey player fiancé Pernell-Karl Subban. The 34-year old Vonn arrived at the recent MTV Video Music Awards function in Newark wearing her ring. The emerald center stone is set in an extremely thin band, and it has two diamonds on both sides, which make this piece super unique yet classic.
The stunning engagement ring of Lindsey Vonn appears to have an emerald weighing 4.0 to 4.5 carats, accented by baguette-shaped side stones. Depending on the specific characteristics and the quality of the emerald center stone, the cost of this ring is estimated to be between $50,000 and $60,000.
Recently, many celebrities, including Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, showcased their unique style by wearing colorful engagement rings. One in particular, a green emerald ring of Michelle Yeoh, caught the attention of people at this year’s Golden Globe Awards red carpet. Besides, emerald diamond engagement rings are also in fashion, with celebs including Olivia Palermo and Jennifer Lopez recently choosing these. The popularity of emerald-shaped diamond rings owes it to the emerald gemstone itself. After all, these diamonds are cut into the same shape as an emerald gem.
Lindsey Vonn’s green emerald popped against her black-colored ensemble as she chose to wear a stunning black mini dress. The Olympic skier also stepped out alone for Vanity Fair’s Best-Dressed List Party wearing her emerald piece with a black crop-top and a color-matching skirt.
Vonn and Subban have dated for a couple of years, and he proposed to her on August 14, 2019, when she was at her home. The couple announced their engagement on August 23, 2019. In an interview given to Vogue magazine, the hockey player disclosed that this unique engagement ring has a special meaning. Green is Vonn’s favorite color, and emerald is Subban’s birthstone. As for why Subban selected such an unconventional piece, he admitted to Vogue that he did it because it is her favorite color – how sweet is this?
He gave her an emerald gemstone necklace last December, and Lindsey Vonn also loved that piece of jewelry. She loves her emerald ring so much that she has told Vogue that she “wouldn’t change the ring at all.” After all, who would do such a thing to this stunning gemstone?
