Actress Lily Collins and her partner Charlie McDowell wed 3 months back. Their engagement happened in 2020. And Charlie gifted Lily a unique diamond ring costing around £65,000. More details on it below.
Lily Collins and her relationship with Charlie McDowell
British-American actress Lily Collins, 32 stars in Emily in Paris. She started dating American producer cum writer Charlie McDowell. The exact time when they started a romantic relationship is not clear. Lily had revealed in 2013 that she prefers to keep her private life under wraps due to the problems she and her family had witnessed during her parents’ divorce.
Lily and Charlie got engaged in September 2020. She shared the good news at that time on her Instagram for her fans. She put up a photo of the moment when Charlie went down on one knee. In the photo, Lily could be seen feeling shy. Charlie had used a self-timer to freeze this magical moment of their lives. Charlie popped the question when they were on a road trip together. Behind the couple are the breathtaking mountains of New Mexico.
The couple’s wedding was on 4 September this year. The ceremony took place at Dunton Hot Springs which is a restored 19th-century ghost town that now is a luxury resort outside Telluride, Colorado. Lily had shared the news on her Instagram for her 25 million subscribers. She captioned a photo of the two:
“Never been happier.”
“I’ve never wanted to be someone’s someone more than I do yours, and now I get to be your wife. On September 4th, 2021 we officially became each other’s forever. I love you beyond @charliemcdowell,”
The engagement ring of Lily
The engagement ring of Lily is extremely unique and rare. It has a lot of well-thought of setting and design. Charlie had designed it himself with help of Irene of Irene Neuwirth Jewellery. This brand makes lovely rings using colored precious stones. The diamond is light-pink in color and it is a rose-cut gemstone. Often, Lily posts photos of her engagement ring. In one of them, she wrote:
“My favourite new accessory.”
Talking about it on the show Live with Kelly and Ryan, Lily had said:
“It’s a rose-cut diamond. Charlie designed it with Irene.”
Kelly Ripa added:
“Those diamonds yield the longest marriages.”
The setting of the ring gem is bezel which means that it is affixed to the band. Hence it is securely fixed and there is no risk of it getting loose and falling out. This is better than the prong setting.
Remarks of reputed jewellers
Bonnie Dudeney, a private jeweller told Hello magazine about Lily’s engagement ring:
“This looks like a very pretty rose-cut diamond and at a guess probably weighs between 2 or 3 carats. This style of diamond always appears larger because it is cut flatter than traditional, modern diamonds. It’s lovely ‘light pink’ colour and is exceptionally rare. While hard to place a value on it, it would certainly command a retail price upwards of £65,000.”
The Natural Diamond Council stated:
“The rose-cut diamond is more than 500 years old and was popular in the Georgian and Victorian eras [and now they] have made their triumphant comeback in the last five years.”
