Everyone knows Sex and the City. This great American TV series, of which two films were also released, is a global phenomenon. The series revolves around the adventures of four New York beauties (Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha) and is full of love, lust, romance, heartbreak, fashion and, of course, jewellery. Let us therefore take a closer look at the beautiful diamond engagement ring that we have seen over the years. For men it can be a source of inspiration and women can dream away at the sight of all that beauty.
Carrie & Aidan
One of the first engagement rings that appears in the series is the diamond ring the main character Carrie gets from Aidan, her first love. A beautiful 3 carat Asscher cut diamond that is flanked by two lovely baguettes. Carrie insisted on wearing the ring as a pendant, so it was closer to her heart. An Asscher cut is a good choice for those who love vintage. This diamond shape is again more often used in engagement rings.
Charlotte & Trey
In season 3, Charlotte accidentally asks Trey to marry her. Not much later he lets her choose an engagement ring. Charlotte, known for her classical style, opts for a traditional solitaire brilliant of 2.17 carat. An excellent choice. After all, this model is still the number 1 most popular engagement ring.
Samantha’s flower ring
In the first Sex and the City movie, Samantha bids on an exquisite diamond flower ring at an auction at Christie's New York. And although it isn’t an engagement ring per se, it can be called a love ring. When it turns out later that her boyfriend of that time, Smith Jerrod, has bought the ring for her, she cannot but give in to a long-term relationship. It’s a turning point in the life of the otherwise wild Samantha. Flowers (and other natural elements) are, by the way, still one of the biggest trends in the world of jewellery.
Carrie & Mr. Big
After a tumultuous relationship, Mr. Big finally asks Carrie to marry him. And this with a black, 5 carat diamond, surrounded by 80 (!) pavé diamonds. The ring is one of the most beautiful engagement rings in (television) history. When Carrie asks why he chose a black diamond, he answers: “because you are different than the others”. And he is right. Every woman is unique and deserves a beautiful diamond engagement ring which suits her personality and taste. That's why increasingly more men are buying tailor-made rings.
