So many celeb couples decided to take the next step in their relationships. Getting engaged in Hollywood means showing off a ginormous new rock – and 2013 proved to be a year filled with bigger and better rings than ever before.

How perfect! Christina’s engagement ring looks to be a vintage style, with a large, art deco halo bordering a round brilliant diamond. This is a distinctive design that’s been gaining in popularity recently, with stars from Scarlett Johansson to Ashlee Simpson taking influences from 1920s fashion. The appeal lies in its ornate structure; the ring covers a large surface area on the ring finger without the need for an oversized center stone.

Having divorced from her first husband, Ryan Reynolds, some two and a half years ago, Scarlett Johansson is all set to take the plunge again. This time her fiancée is Romain Dauriac, a French Journalist. Sources close to the couple stated that “Scarlett and Romain are now officially engaged and are extremely happy together”.

The rumour mill had been circulating about the possible engagement of the couple and was confirmed when she was recently spotted wearing a stunning art-deco style, vintage diamond engagement ring at the Venice Film Festival held in Italy. She was promoting her latest film the sci-fi blockbuster ‘Under The Skin’ and seemed more than happy to show the ring off.

No date for the big day

According to People Magazine, the French Journalist proposed to the 28 year old actress a little over one month ago although the magazine stated that “As of yet, the couple haven’t fixed a date for the big day”.

Johansson has been nominated four times for the Golden Globes including her first major movie ‘Lost In Translation’ where she teamed up with Actor Bill Murray. Since then she has gone on to star in films such as ‘The Girl With The Pearl Earring’ and the much acclaimed ‘A Love Song For Bobby Long’ where she starred alongside John Travolta. In 2012, Johansson played ‘Black Widow’ in the record-breaking movie ‘The Avengers’, a role she is set to reprise in 2015.

The Engagement Ring

Scarlett Johansson’s engagement ring featured what looks to be three round diamonds surrounded by a vintage, rectangular setting with more diamonds. A stunning and unique design. Johansson is the latest celebrity to be seen breaking tradition and going for unique engagement rings. We don’t know if this is really her idea or Dauriac’s idea but regardless, we love the design of the enagement ring.
