Gabrielle Union’s Engagement Ring was revealed to the world in a breathtaking Instagram post on December 22, 2013. The actress and fashion icon received her beautiful ring from Miami Heat shooting guard and 12-time All-Star Dwayne Wade.

To add to the special moment, Dwayne Wade enlisted the help of his two children and his nephew in popping the question! Wade and Union went on to make the family affair official, getting married the next year in an elegant outdoor wedding.

But you’re here for Gabrielle Union’s engagement ring! And you’re in the right place.

You’ll find out:

  1. What style Gabrielle Union’s engagement ring is
  2. What diamond shape is Gabrielle Union’s engagement ring?

What Style Is Gabrielle Union’s Engagement Ring?

Gabrielle’s engagement ring seems to have a flat solitaire band with a raised, pavé-studded basket. The solitaire band lends her ring a classic feel, while the diamond-studded basket gives the ring a surprise pop of sparkle when viewed from the side.

Solitaire engagement rings are the most popular setting among ring shoppers. Why? 2 main reasons:

  1. Solitaire engagement rings don’t distract from your center diamond! All the glitter is in your center stone.
  2. Solitaire settings save your wallet. You can invest in the center diamond of your dreams with all the money you save on the band. 

What Diamond Shape Is Gabrielle Union’s Engagement Ring?

Three cushion cut diamonds shown from different angles.

The stunning stone is an enormous cushion-cut diamond. It’s a colorless, eye-clean diamond. It’s at least an F Color with a clarity of VS1 or higher.

How Many Carats is Gabrielle Union’s Engagement Ring?

Reportedly, her diamond is an incredible 8.5 carats. And man, does it impress!

How Much Did Gabrielle Union’s Engagement Ring Cost & What’s It Really Worth?!

Gabrielle’s diamond comprises nearly the entire value of her engagement ring. Rumor has it that it cost Wade nearly $1 million! And such a gorgeous stone is truly worth every penny.

There aren’t many large-carat diamonds in less-common cuts like cushion, but compared to a similar James Allen round diamond, the $1 million valuation seems fair!

CHECK PRICE

A comparable 8 carat cushion-cut diamond is relatively more affordable. In fact, a cushion-cut diamond usually costs 30-50% less than a round diamond of a similar carat.

Radiant Ruby: The July Birthstone

Tap your heels together three times and repeat after us: there’s no birthstone like ruby, there’s no birthstone like ruby, there’s no birthstone like ruby.

cover ruby Birthstone Jewelry Blog Update copy

Ruby, the July birthstone, is simply luxurious. Its blood-red color has been prized for millennia. Rubies are mentioned multiple times in the bible, were described by Pliny in the first century AD, and are named “the king of gems” – ratnaraj – in Sanskrit. Traditionally mined in South Asia, and in particular Thailand and Myanmar, they made their way via the silk road to all corners of the ancient world. 

Though rubies likely rose to royal status first in ancient India, they were quickly adopted into noble families wherever they went. Jaw-dropping ruby jewelry sets are currently worn by the royal families of England, Denmark, and Portugal. And a bit further back, Marco Polo wrote that the Chinese emperor Kublai Khan, upon visiting the ruby mines of Sri Lanka, was so taken by the gems’ beauty that he offered to trade a whole city for one particularly massive scarlet stone. 

Ruby’s Meaning

Ruby birthdays enjoy a wealth of special ruby meanings, among them passion, love, wisdom, wealth, and power. Nice. The ruby’s depth of history and meaning certainly makes them one of the more impressive birthstones; July babies are lucky enough to have an excuse to wear these charmed gems year-round.

The Ruby Anniversary

If you’re celebrating your 40th wedding anniversary, there can be no gift other than rubies. 40 years of marriage calls for the Ruby Anniversary, and there are plenty of ruby jewelry gifts to celebrate with.

Ruby’s Durability

It’s almost as if ruby were made to be worn. At a 9 on the Mohs Hardness Scale, rubies are quite close to diamonds in terms of toughness. They’re incredibly durable and resistant to scratching. No matter how or when you wear them, they’ll come out the other side looking as good as can be. 

Fun fact: The ruby is very closely related to the sapphire; both precious stones are a variety of the mineral corundum. However, ruby exists at the redder end of the spectrum.

The July Birthstone: Ruby Rings

A ruby ring is the perfect birthstone gift. Special, singular, and super scarlet – gifting a beautiful ruby in a meaningful setting will melt the heart of any July birthday. The ultimate advantage of a ruby ring? The wearer can always see it. They’ll hold it up to the light, wiggle their fingers, and let your ruby birthstone ring shine.

Summer Proposal Spots And Sparklers To Match

Planning on proposing this summer? We’ve covered your proposal spot AND an engagement ring to match! 

Summer Proposal Ocean-Island Spot And Diamond Engagement Ring

If popping the question to your SO is on the to-do list this summer, you’ve come to the right place. We’re turning up the heat with proposal spot ideas so you can start the season off with a bang. From intimate beaches to exquisite European settings, read on for our top summer proposal locations with the perfect rings to match the occasion.

Hit The Beach: Twisted Pavé

Summer’s in the air and it’s the perfect time to hit the beach with your special someone. But there’s a twist – we’re talking about these stunning white and yellow gold pavé engagement rings of course! If your favorite dates include fun in the sun, the beach is your go-to proposal spot this summer. 

Planning Tip: If you’re set on a beach proposal, make sure you know which setting your partner will enjoy more. Find a quiet spot closer to sunset if your SO is the shy type.

Next, keep the ring in its ring box. We can’t stress this enough. If that beauty falls into the sand or heaven fordid, the water, we’ll start crying for you. Get one of your friends or another beachgoer to capture your “yes” moment on camera, and don’t forget your sunblock!

Summer Proposal On The Beach Front

European Style: Vintage

Now’s the perfect time to surprise your SO, together with a gorgeous European backdrop. From the cliché’ Paris proposal to the French Riviera or a Tuscan getaway, there are plenty of options and sparkle to choose from. With this type of proposal spot comes a more traditional approach and we’ve got the perfect choice – vintage engagement rings.

Planning Tip: A European-inspired proposal may take a little more effort when planning. Keep in mind you aren’t a local, so it’s important that you scout the location, know its peak hours, and double-check the weather report beforehand. The more sure you are of the tiny details, the less stressed you’ll be to pop the big question.

Summer Proposal And Diamond Engagement Ring In Front Of The Eiffel Tower

Get Lost In Nature: Side-Stone

If you’re the outdoorsy type, this may just be your dream proposal spot this summer. Feel the thrill of the wild on a safari, take a hike or find the perfect sunset to set the tone. Talk about a cliffhanger? Keep it simple with a side stone engagement ring and let nature do the rest.

Planning Tip: Safety first is our main tip here. Being in nature can be both beautiful but also unpredictable. If you’re planning a summer proposal that involves mountains and wild animals, make sure you have a first aid kit for minor bumps and scrapes, lots of snacks (so no one gets Hangry), and let your safari guide know in advance about your plan- chances are they’ll help you make it extra special.

Summer Proposal At The Top Of A Mountain Range

Greek Getaway: Solitaire

We reckon an island vibe is an almost sure-fire way to get that ‘YES!’. Seriously, is there a dreamier place for your summer proposal than Santorini? Pair a gorgeous white gold engagement ring with the ethereal beauty that is Greece and you’ll think you’ve landed in heaven.

Planning Tip: Okay, so this proposal spot makes us all kinds of jealous. Make it truly exotic by finding the perfect setting. Here you have anything from white sandy beaches to Ancient Greek monuments to choose from. Go the extra mile and do it somewhere “wow.” Find a local photographer beforehand, so there’s someone there to capture your special engagement moment.

Summer Proposal In Greece At The Ocean Side

 Desert Adventure: Halo

This one is for the adventure seekers and risk-takers! If your partner fits the description then a desert backdrop may just be your calling. The ring of choice? Be bold with yellow gold engagement rings and choose a halo setting. Once her eyes lock on one of these dazzlers, you’ll never be ‘deserted’ again 😉

Planning Tip: We know this one isn’t for everybody, but a desert proposal can be EPIC. It can be done in broad daylight after a day of excitement. Try planning activities like dune bashing, sandboarding, hiking, or quad biking.

If you’re feeling a little romantic, find a glamping spot and propose to your love under the sparkling desert night sky. Research which clothing will be best for the desert’s unique weather conditions.

Stackable Rings: The Essential Guide

We’ve compiled a dazzling assortment of stackable rings. P.S. You’ll want to start stacking these beauties ASAP.

Stackable Rings: Top Ring Stacking Tips

What is a Stackable Ring?

A stackable ring is more than wearing a variety of sparkle, it’s a symbol of your individuality. Whether you stack multiple rings on many fingers or pile sparkle on one finger, both make a shining statement. Stackable rings are also a foolproof gift to spoil a loved one to mark a special occasion. Read our top ring stacking tips, then stack the perfect combo! 

Love At First Stack

When it comes to stackable rings, the creative floodgates are open! Start with a statement ring on your ring finger and build around it. Alternatively, choose small rings with subtle bits of sparkle and work your way up. There’s no right or wrong answer – you are the leader of your stack! We think white, rose and yellow gold rings make the dream stack.

Mix & Match

Learning how to build a mixed metal ring stack requires a combination of practice and personal preference. If you’re feeling adventurous, use two contrasting metals to mix and match your statement ring. Pick a primary color, then add 2-3 secondary pieces to the top and bottom of the center ring for a stunning alternating combo.

Simple Stacking

Diamonds-Are-Forever-The-April-Birthstone-Cover

Diamonds Are Forever the April Birthstone

The stars must have aligned to create an April birthstone so sublime.

James Allen's April Birthstone Jewelry

Diamond, the April birthstone, needs a little introduction. It is, after all, the single most coveted precious stone in the world – not to mention, the object of many an engagement fantasy. But what exactly is it about the sparkly stone that makes it such a prize?

The answer lies in the stone’s rarity, toughness, and, above all, exceptional beauty.

Read on for the most sparkling diamond jewelry gifts for an April birthday!

Color: The April Birthstone

April birthstone diamond color

Diamonds’ coloring runs the gamut from totally colorless to quite colorful. The vast majority of diamonds exist on a spectrum of yellowish to colorless. Some people like the warmth of a slightly yellow diamond, especially when complemented with a warm jewelry metal, like a yellow or rose gold setting. However, most prefer the glacial quality of a colorless diamond, which is far rarer.

April birthstone fancy color diamonds

A popular alternative to colorless diamonds, fancy color diamonds come in a range of natural hues including yellow and pink. Colors at the vivid end of the spectrum are quite rare and, therefore, more valuable.

Toughness: The April Birthstone

Diamonds are tough. Really tough. Like the-hardest-mineral-on-Earth tough. Being virtually indestructible has its advantages, of course. Diamonds do not require much maintenance to keep them looking new. They also retain their polish for a very long time, making them equally suitable for everyday wear and special occasions. Ironically, the only thing capable of scratching a diamond is another diamond, so it’s best to store diamond jewels separately.

Sparkle: The April Birthstone

Diamonds have a refractive index of 2.42, as well as a faceting pattern that efficiently returns light. The sparkle that we see with our own eyes is a result of 3 main factors: brilliance (reflected white light), fire (refracted color), and scintillation (surface sparkle).

Additionally, a diamond’s cut contributes to its impressive sparkle. A well-proportioned and symmetrical stone will display maximal fire and brilliance. Why? It ensures that light hits that particular stone in all the right places.

Three Prong Martini Round Brilliant Diamond Earrings

The diamonds in these martini-style studs sit perfectly flush in their settings, making them appear to float on the ear. These diamond-forward earrings are heavy on the sparkle, yet minimal enough to be worn in absolutely any occasion.

Quote: ‘Very satisfied with the quality of the settings and diamonds. The three-prong martini setting is a very delicate setting but feels sturdy and it sits well on the earlobe. Highly recommend!’ -Joana C.

14K Yellow Gold Three Prong Martini Round Brilliant Diamond Stud Earrings

Four Prong Diamond Tennis Bracelet

The ultimate in classy sparkle. Slip this yellow gold diamond tennis bracelet onto your wrist and get ready to turn heads. This diamond-studded bracelet is stunning enough to be the centerpiece of your jewelry collection, yet simple enough to stack alongside a variety of diamond bracelet styles.

14K Yellow Gold Four Prong Diamond Tennis Bracelet

Quote: ‘The bracelet was full of sparkly and clear diamonds that looked huge. I misjudged how eye-catching this piece would be. If you want bling, this bracelet definitely delivers. Very pleased with my first experience with James Allen.’ – Nancy P.

Open Luxe Diamond Bracelet

This stylish bracelet features a unique open design studded with 6 baguette-shaped diamonds and 16 round-cut diamonds! The perfect diamond jewelry piece for when you want to make a statement on the down-low. 

14K Yellow Gold Open Luxe Diamond Bracelet

Quote: ‘The bracelet is very pretty and my wife loved it!’ – Ron P.

Modern Tulip Diamond Engagement Ring

The tulip-inspired basket, with its softly draping lines and defined petals, is the crowning glory of this simple-yet-graceful engagement ring. This solitaire ring features a basket decorated with open leaf-inspired patterns that allow light to shine through. The rounded band is super comfortable. The more you wear it, the less you’ll want to take it off!

Quote: ‘The ring is absolutely beautiful, and exceeded my expectations. My fiancée loves it, and is so proud to show it to everybody. She comments everyday about how beautiful it is.’ – TIm L.

14K White Gold Modern Tulip Diamond Engagement Ring

Floral Halo Engagement Ring

Shaped like a flower in full bloom, this ring’s halo does a fabulous job of framing the center diamond and bringing out its brilliance.

Petite Pavé Engagement Ring

Have a gander at one of our most popular ring styles! This petite pavé engagement ring is a natural wonder in its own right. The ring’s pavé band is studded with petite, semi-exposed diamonds, maximizing the amount of light that hits their many, many facets and increasing this ring’s overall sparkle.

Quote: ‘The petite pavé engagement ring I purchased for my fiancée couldn’t have made her any happier! The detail and overall quality of this ring blew both of us away.’ – Alex L.

Diamond Stud Earrings: Make Your Ears Pop!

Friends, romantics, customers; lend us your ears! 👂

As the first points of sparkle a person sees when they look at you, you’ll want to make sure your lobes are suitably lustrous. And there are no more elegant ear accessories than diamond studs, which make for a dazzling first impression.

Thanks to their ear-hugging design, these earrings appear to float on the earlobe as if weightless in space. Whether you opt for the classic basket or super-trendy martini style setting, you’re bound to be flushed with finesse.

Stud-y up on diamond stud earrings with our essential guide.

Diamond Stud Earrings: So Right and Yet So Prong

Diamond studs come in a choice of fab settings including pavé, martini, and basket, each offering varying degrees of comfort and style, as well as durability. To help you decide between them, let’s take a closer look at two of the more popular setting styles.

BASK IN A BASKET SETTING 🧺

Traditional four or six-prong basket settings afford a reasonably good fit. In these diamond studs, the diamond is set low in the frame, so it sits flat against the earlobe.

Four-Prong Earring Settings

18K White Gold Four Prong Stud Earrings

Timeless and stunning, round-cut diamond stud earrings add a classic elegance to any occasion.

Princess-Cut Stud Earrings

14K Yellow Gold Princess Cut Diamond Stud Earrings

Another classic pair, these stud earrings feature a princess-cut diamond set in a light four-prong wire basket.

Scallop Basket Diamond Earrings

14K Yellow Gold Scallop Basket Diamond Stud Earrings

Designed to accent the beauty of the round brilliant diamond, these earrings feature six prongs and a scalloped basket.

Bezel-Set Diamond Stud Earrings

14K Yellow Gold Bezel Diamond Stud Earrings

Well, well, well. Bezel-set diamond studs are sleek, clean, and oh-so-sturdy. They really are the perfect choice for wearers that lead active lifestyles: the bezel setting won’t snag on any fabric, and it’s arguably the most secure setting. Plus, it’s cute AF.

Pear-Shaped Diamond Stud Earrings

14K White Gold Pear Shape Diamond Stud Earrings

Gorgeous, elegant, and unique – pear-shaped diamonds are taking over the jewelry scene. These shining droplets stand out from the crowd of more common diamond shapes, especially when poised perfectly on your lobes.

Oval Diamond Stud Earrings

14K Yellow Gold Oval Shape Diamond Stud Earrings

The trendiest diamond shape of the past few years is also one of the most flattering shapes for diamond stud earrings. Its curved edges and elongated form compliment every face shape and every wardrobe.

Emerald-Cut Diamond Stud Earrings

14K White Gold Emerald Cut Diamond Stud Earrings

The emerald cut is an in-your-face shape that shows off your diamond’s crystal clarity. It’s one of the earliest established diamond cuts. As such, these emerald-cut diamond studs boast an undeniable royal feel: bold, elegant, and confident.

MARTINI SETTINGS:
SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED 🍸

Named for their conical shape, which resembles a martini glass, martini settings are very in right now due to their super-flush fit. Their narrow bottom means that the diamond can be set even closer to the earlobe than standard basket-style settings. Not only do you get a well-balanced and comfortable fit, but the low profile reveals less metal and more diamond.

Three-Prong Martini Style Earrings

18K Yellow Gold Three Prong Martini Style Stud Earrings

These martini settings are constructed to the exact size of the center diamonds, ensuring that the stones sit perfectly flush with the settings.

Double Prong Diamond Stud Earrings

14K Yellow Gold Double Prong Diamond Stud Earrings

The prong setting is a total classic. And the double prongs on these slices of bling add an understated pop of flair to a traditionally beloved setting. The minimalist prongs allow light to hit your diamond’s facets from nearly every angle.

Diamond Pavé Halo Frame Settings

14K White Gold Halo Lab Created Diamond Stud Earrings

Not your everyday diamond stud, this design combines the three-prong martini with a diamond pavé frame.

As a rule of thumb, the snugger the diamond is against the ear, the better. Besides looking more elegant and refined, a flush setting protects the diamond from undue wear and tear.
