For many women, dreaming about what their future engagement ring will look like starts at a rather young age. But what if that ring you’ve been dreaming of your whole life became the “World’s Most Famous Engagement Ring” of 2017?
That’s exactly what happened to Sylvia Billone, a Pinterest user who decided to share a photo of the engagement ring she and her betrothed designed together.Sylvia Billone/Pinterest
According to The Knot, Billone’s photo has been “pinned” more than 103,900 times on Pinterest, making it the most circulated ring in the world.
Billone described the engagement ring and the wedding band for her Pinterest followers:
“We had both custom made at a local jewelry store. It’s 1.22 carats. It’s a 2mm width band. I brought a bunch of pictures for them to go by. [I] wanted claw style prongs, non-tapered, and non-cathedral for the engagement ring. For the wedding band I had seen ones like it—Art Deco style—on Pinterest but asked for no milgrain around the single diamonds and to only have it around the double smaller diamonds.”
As for how much her ring-band combo cost, that is unknown.
Billone explained to a follower that her wedding band alone was around $1,280. However, she never mentions the cost of her engagement ring.
As The Knot reported, the fact that Billone’s ring has become the World’s Most Famous Engagement Ring of 2017 proves that more women are taking a liking to “a more minimalist aesthetic” compared to the most famous ring of 2016, which was the luxurious Verragio Venetian from Raymond Lee Jewelers.
There’s no telling what Billone thinks of owning the World’s Most Famous Engagement Ring, but the fact that it’s gorgeous is something everyone can get behind.
