What would a new year be without some fresh bride-to-be bling courtesy of the Piano Man’s first-born princess, Alexa Ray Joel? Seriously, we could not adore ARJ’s engagement ring more if we tried. Just keep reading and let us know if you don’t agree😉 ….
Alexa just celebrated her 32nd birthday on December 29th, and it seems like her boyfriend (errrr fiancé, whoops), Ryan Gleason, wanted to keep the good times going. You know, by proposing? The setting was ideal, too, because as evidenced by Alexa’s series of posts leading up to yesterday’s ring shot, the two were vacationing somewhere beautifully beachy.
Celebs and their #relationshipgoals on the beach, amirite Kelsea Ballerini and Morgan Evans?Her first two posts let us in on the news and how unbelievably shocked she was following her honey’s ultimate question and pretty poetic ‘I’m-proposing’ prose.
“So I was completely taken off-guard, dumbstruck, and shell-shocked- and FOR ONCE in my life, I had absolutely no words, and I couldn’t speak... I just kept staring at this ridiculously exquisite ring- and he was just hysterically laughing at me!!! 🕊💎 🕊”
Adorable. And then… she hit us with the ring selfie. And WE were speechless. Ridiculously exquisite? Yes. Yes. YESSSSSSS.
It’s not a trilogy engagement ring, like a certain future Duchess of Sussex, but it is still OOC and something that we think a ton of women - especially those with some edge, like Ms. Alexa Ray - would proudly say ‘YES’ to. It’s a hugeeee emerald cut, with embellishments on the side. And it reminds us of a few other next-level engagement rings that aren’t totally traditional, but still epic in their own right.
The band is sooo cool and different, and it has us dreaming about all the fun things you can do with your engagement ring. From embellished settings, to colored gemstones, we’re all about it. Swipe through for some looks that strike us as ARJ-approved.
