Actor Nicola Peltz and model Brooklyn Beckham are officially engaged. The couple revealed the engagement through a celebratory photo that sees them pose against the Cotswolds background. Beckham took to Instagram and posted this picture, and fans were quick to notice the emerald cut diamond engagement ring on Peltz’s finger. She also appears to be thrilled to pieces with her lover’s choice.
The pair confirmed that they are in a relationship in late 2019 for the first time. They had been in their NYC-based house before the engagement. They came back to the United Kingdom earlier this year, and celebrated the birthday of Harper Seven Beckham with both Victoria and David Beckham on July 10, 2020.
An emotional Brooklyn Beckham captioned his Instagram post thus: “I am the luckiest man in the world. I promise to be the best husband and the best daddy one day.” Peltz wore her ring with a complementing diamond bracelet. As per reports, David Beckham’s son himself designed the emerald-shaped diamond piece for her. The stone is set on its metal band with a narrow pavé setting.
Pavé is a form of ring setting where the metal shank is paved with tiny diamonds. The diamonds are usually mounted on it with metal prongs, which offer the look of a seamless line of stones. The emerald gemstone-shaped diamond is a stunning and timeless option that makes the wearer’s finger appear longer. It is a step diamond cut, which was actually made to keep the delicate corners of emerald gemstones from harm. The diamond cut got its name because it has a similar appearance to the emerald gem.
The cut has been available for years, but it got more popular in the so-called Art Deco period. In the 1920’s and 1930’s, jewelry pieces were made with elements of Art Deco architecture such as the steps. Celebrities including Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor, Beyoncé, and Jennifer Lopez played a part in popularizing the emerald-shaped diamond. Victoria Beckham is among the celebrities who own a broad collection of emerald cut engagement rings.
The emerald-shaped diamond has fewer facets than its round brilliant cut counterpart, and it is best for gemstones that have exceptional clarity grades. This is because any internal flaws in the stone will not be noticeable to the naked eye.
