The sighting: It’s been a year since Gwen Stefani said yes to her The Voice co-star Blake Shelton, but the singer’s recent anniversary Instagram post included views of the ring that has us wanting to hollaback at her engagement bling all over again.

The jewels: A large radiant cut diamond with trapezoid side stones on a band with slightly tapered shoulders, Stefani’s ring from Shelton is about as classic as classic gets. It’s sleek and glacier-sized, with white metal with icy white diamonds. With a center stone around 8 carats, this ring could easily be worth $500,000, Rare Carat CEO Ajay Anand told Insider.

The trends: It’s interesting that this ring features no halo, pavé, color, or gimmicky novelty shapes; one would expect the flamboyant Stefani to want bells and whistles, but the more streamlined look means that this ravishing ring will work with any other jewel the rockstar chooses to wear alongside it. A timeless choice.

What do we think? One would expect Gwen Stefani’s engagement to go one of two ways: it needed to either be totally off-the-wall, over-the-top bonkers or iconic Hollywood glam. The couple went classic and while we always regret missing the chance to see a celebrity choose a truly wild piece of jewelry, we have to say that this ring’s appeal is undeniable.

Judgement: 11/10 for classic perfection, 7/10 for a missed opportunity to do something really unusual

Put Your Trust in Wilkerson

To do business successfully with anyone, you need a certain “comfort level.” That’s something that Phillips Pitts, owner of two Parris Jewelers stores in Hattiesburg, Miss., said he felt immediately when he first talked to Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes. He was just about to launch an anniversary sale. And he chose Wilkerson to handle all the details — from the marketing to the sales floor. “Rick cared what was going to happen to Parris Jewelers,” says Pitts. “Not just during the sale but after the sale.” Would he recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers contemplating a large-scale sale? Absolutely, says Pitts, who says the results “exceeded their expectations.” His trust in Wilkerson has only grown after the numbers came in. “They were interested in me fulfilling and what I need to fulfill to make my company better.”
