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

It’s Going to Set Us Up Very Nicely for Retirement

You’ve worked hard all your life. And if you’re like most jewelers contemplating retirement, you’re hoping that your going-out-of-business sale will add to your nest egg — with minimal complications. That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
