Trend alert: Engagement rings for single celebrities
Engagement rings are for the engaged - or not.
From Jennifer Lopez to Kylie Jenner, Hollywood names are turning engagement rings into a singles’ trend – and we’re loving it! For as long as we can remember, single ladies have shied away from diamond rings due to the belief that they are only for those who are engaged. But what if you’re not getting engaged? What if you don’t want to be committed? Or what if you just haven’t found your other half yet? We say ditch the tradition and get yourself some finger bling - these ladies did: Okay, so female rapper Nicki Minaj didn’t exactly get herself a diamond ring – her partner did – but it wasn’t for engagement purposes. According to Minaj, rapper Meek Mill gave it to her as an early birthday present. And it wasn’t the first time. Earlier this year, Meek presented Minaj with another yellow diamond ring, worth over half a million dollars, which she sported on her ring finger. Unlike Minaj, 40-year old reality TV star Kate Gosselin bought herself an engagement ring as a gift to herself. She confirmed her single status on Twitter and added, “Loved the ring so I put it on myself for my birthday – Had to have something about that to make me smile.” Kim Kardashian’s younger half-sister, Kylie Jenner, posted an Instagram shot wearing a rock on her ring finger. However, she explained that the ring was “just an extra special gift from a special someone…” and that she wasn’t engaged to now-partner Tyga. Actress Lindsay Lohan’s career might have gone downhill since her drug addiction, but it didn’t stop her from gifting herself a diamond ring. We salute her for that. Jennifer Lopez has denied engagement rumours, but she’s still sporting a rock to Hollywood’s biggest events – so why shouldn’t you? Katy Perry is proof that divorce doesn’t mean the absence of a ring. The pop singer was pictured wearing a diamond ring to the Elle Style Awards last year – and she’s still sporting it.
