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

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
