Hailey Bieber’s Engagement Ring: The Ultimate Guide 

Hailey Bieber’s Engagement Ring

Hailey Baldwin met Justin Bieber when the two were youngsters backstage at one of his concerts. The two became fast friends and dated on and off before Justin proposed to Baldwin in the Bahamas in July of 2018. 

After news traveled fast, Bieber posted a lengthy and heartfelt post, confirming their engagement and his clear devotion for his wife-to-be. 

The next day, Hailey was seen sporting an impressive sparkler around the island, noticeable for its resemblance to another star’s engagement ring- Blake Lively- no surprise as Hailey had once retweeted a post that read, “If my ring isn’t as big as Blake Lively’s, I don’t want to get married.“ Clearly, the Biebs got the hint because the two engagement rings could be sister twins except for some minor unique yet stunning details. 

We’re going to share the following fun facts with you: 

  1. The style of Hailey’s engagement ring 
  2. The diamond shape 
  3. The diamonds carat size 
  4. How much Hailey’s engagement ring cost

What Style Setting is Hailey Bieber’s Engagement Ring?

Hailey Bieber’s engagement ring appears to be a classic 18K yellow gold solitaire band with a hidden diamond halo basket elevating the oval center stone. The ring was a custom-designed piece by Jack Solow of Solow & Co. Inc Diamond Jewelers.

The solitaire setting is by far the most traditional style and speaks to classic elegance. With a solitaire setting, there are no added diamonds along with the band, but the band can be shaped to your taste. Styles like knife edge, comfort fit, etched rope, and cable solitaire are all trendy ways to add your personality to an engagement ring.

Yellow gold is the most common gold used for engagement rings and is considered the most traditional metal. This metal is easier to maintain than white gold, giving you that perfect vintage feel. It’s also more malleable, making it cheaper to resize. 

What Diamond Shape is Hailey’s Engagement Ring?

Hailey Bieber’s engagement ring is set with a glowing oval cut diamond. This diamond cut has been recorded since the 1300s and is usually priced lower than round brilliant cut center stones.

Three different sized oval cut diamonds

Oval cut diamonds are considered to be “fancy-shaped” diamonds, with an elongated design that makes them appear larger than diamonds of the same carat weight. 

This style is perfect for a wearer who prefers a longer-looking diamond and one that will make the fingers appear slimmer. Oval-shaped diamonds pair perfectly with almost every setting and work incredibly well with three stone and vintage styles. 

How Many Carats is Hailey Bieber’s Engagement Ring?

Hailey’s massive oval cut engagement ring is estimated to be between 6-10 carats. The center diamond is colorless. 

How Much Did Hailey Bieber’s Ring Cost? And What’s It Really Worth?! 

Justin Bieber went all out when buying Hailey’s engagement ring. Experts say the ring costs around $500,000.

14K Gold vs. 18K Gold: Which Is Right For You?

Looking to decide between 14K and 18K gold? This handy guide will help simplify the process!

Looking to decide between 14K and 18K gold

Anyone who has uttered the old adage, “all that glitters is not gold” didn’t have a sparkly diamond attached to it! As beautiful as gold is, it comes in so many different options that sometimes it can be hard to figure out which one is right for you.

1. 14K Gold vs. 18K Gold

Most jewelers offer two different karats (not to be confused with “carats” – those are for diamonds) options for gold jewelry: 14K and 18K. Unlike pure gold, which is made of 24K, 14K and 18K are actually pure gold combined with other metals like silver, nickel and copper. You might be asking yourself, “why can’t 24K gold be used for jewelry?” Simply put, pure gold is not durable enough for everyday use, as it easily dents and scratches. In order to make it more durable, it is mixed with other metals. As a rule of thumb, the higher the karat number (aka the number before the letter “K”), the more gold it has in it. For example, 18K is more purer than 14K, which is more purer than 10K. Finally, there will be subtle differences in color depending on which karat grade you choose.

2. Reasons To Choose 14K:

There are a few different factors that will help determine if 14K gold is right for you. First, if your significant other works with their hands, 14K might be the way to go, as it’s more durable than 18K. Additionally, some styles can only be made in 14K gold because they need the added durability that 14K offers. This brings us to the second reason to choose 14K – since it has less gold in it, it’s more affordable, which makes it a great option if you’re looking to maximize your budget. Finally, if your significant other prefers a softer yellow gold color, 14K yellow gold engagement rings are the way to go.

3. Reasons To Choose 18K:

To help decide whether 18K gold is the choice for you, consider the following factors: Since it’s purer and has less alloys in it, 18K is preferable if your significant other has a metal allergy. 18K yellow gold also has a brighter look to it than 14K, which may be preferable to 14K’s more subtle tone. If your significant other has a job that doesn’t involve a lot of hand work, then 18K’s durability should fare fine.

4. Yellow Gold vs White Gold vs Rose Gold:

While choosing 14K or 18K gold might come down to practical factors like budget or durability, choosing a gold color is totally based on personal preferences. If you or your significant other has a metal color preference, awesome – you’re done! If you’re unsure, however, you may want to take into consideration a few different factors. 

As a general rule of thumb, diamonds of “I” color or higher will face up white in white metals, like white gold or platinum. If you’re setting a diamond in yellow or rose gold, you can often drop down in color to a “J” color (or sometimes even a “K” color) and the diamond will still face up white. The reason for this is that yellow and rose gold create optical illusions that make diamonds look whiter comparatively. 

Pro tip: if a diamond has yellow undertones, it will pair better with yellow gold, whereas if a diamond has brown undertones, it will pair better with rose gold.

5. Wrapping Up:

While there are many factors to take into consideration when deciding between 14k vs. 18k gold, remember these tips to make the decision-making process easier: budget, metal sensitivity, color preference and durability. Finally (and most importantly), this is a major milestone in life – don’t forget to enjoy it!
