WHY HAILEY BALDWIN AND JUSTIN BIEBER ARE FINALLY WEARING PLATINUM WEDDING BANDS?
Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin finally step out wearing matching platinum wedding bands. The couple have been married for nine months, but only just started wearing wedding rings in public. So why now? “Justin wants to send a loud and clear message to everyone that he is fully committed to Hailey and very married,” says the source to online publication, Hollywood Life. “This is his way of shouting it from the rooftops, it is very significant. He isn’t wearing it 24/7, he’s just not that much of a jewellery guy, but he has been wearing it a lot, he wants everyone to know how proud he is to be Hailey’s husband.”
Wearing beautiful jewellery is nothing new for Hailey — she’s been wearing her oval diamond engagement ring since Justin got down on one knee in July 2018. However, having matching wedding bands with the love of her life is truly a symbol of their commitment. “Hailey loves that they are both wearing rings. She’s been wearing her engagement ring of course, but now she and Justin have matching rings, it means a lot to her because it’s a symbol of their commitment.” Discover everything there is to know about Hailey’s engagement ring below:
ALL ABOUT HAILEY BALDWIN’S ENGAGEMENT RING
The celebrity engagement ring is an object of constant fascination. Whether it is Blake Lively’s 12-carat pink diamond ring or Kim Kardashian West’s 15-carat cushion cut diamond creation, famous engagement rings never fail to capture the imagination. The latest finger bling that has been added to the list of best celebrity engagement rings of all time is that of one of the most buzzed-about couples – Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber. The model’s much talked about diamond sparkler has fans swooning. Here is a closer look.
HOW DID HAILEY BALDWIN AND JUSTIN BIEBER GET ENGAGED?
Planning a surprise proposal takes a lot of thought and discretion, especially if you have fans everywhere watching your every move. But this did not keep Bieber from sweeping his sweetheart off her feet. The gorgeous diamond ring found its way to her finger during a romantic vacation to the Bahamas in July 2018. According to witnesses, the couple was at a restaurant doing salsa dancing when Justin's security announced that everyone should put their phones away because something special was about to happen. It was then that the singer got down on one knee in front of everyone and slipped the breath-taking diamond ring on his soul mate’s finger. The couple confirmed the exciting news on social media two days later.
BIEBER HELPED DESIGN THE RING
The most iconic rings of all time all have one thing in common: It is all about the diamond; and Hailey Baldwin’s engagement ring certainly has a showstopper stone. In his quest to find the perfect engagement ring for the love of his life, Bieber turned to Jack Solow, a private jeweller based at a New York City family-run jewellery store his manager referred him to. According to the jeweller, Bieber knew very well what his girlfriend wanted in a ring. However, over and above certain design elements Bieber specified, including the type of band and metal, he also wanted a very special diamond – a stone that would gracefully accentuate Hailey’s beautifully shaped hands. The special stone that was chosen turned out to be a mesmerising oval shape diamond with exceptional length and grace, somewhere between six and ten carats.
HE SAW HER FACE IN THE DIAMOND
According to the jeweller, the entire process of designing Hailey Baldwin’s engagement ring only took a few weeks. Bieber first laid his eyes on the end result on the Friday morning before the couple jetted off to the Bahamas – the mini holiday he had planned for the proposal. When Bieber sat down to inspect the final product, he examined the ring through the jeweller’s loupe. When Solow asked what he saw inside the diamond, Bieber replied, “I think I see Hailey's face.” If you see the face of your loved one inside a diamond, you know she’s the one.
THEIR FOLLOWERS’ REACTION
The September issue of Vogue Mexico calls Baldwin's bling "the ring of 12 million likes," possibly referring to the number of double-clicks the singer’s engagement confirmation post received on Instagram. Currently the post has over 13 million likes. Judging by their followers’ love, the ring certainly does the couple’s stardom justice.
HOW MUCH DID HAILEY BALDWIN'S RING COST?
When it comes to celebrity engagement rings, putting a price on it and deciding on the size of the stone certainly knows no bounds. Although there is no official confirmation of the weight or cost of the diamond, sources estimate that the oval-shaped stone is between six and ten carats and the ring is estimated to have cost around $500,000, which converts to approximately R7.3 million.
HAILEY LOVES HER RING
Who wouldn’t fall in love with a breathtakingly beautiful, massive oval shape diamond, sitting on an 18ct gold pavé band? Bieber’s jeweller reported that Hailey "really loves" the ring that he and the singer created for her. But even more evident than Hailey’s love for her ring is her affection for her beau. Hailey confirmed the engagement with a romantic tweet: "Not sure what I did in life to deserve such happiness but I am so utterly grateful to God for giving me such an incredible person to share my life with! No words could ever express my gratitude.”
