Proving “They Don’t Need to Try,” Supermodel Gets Understated Engagement Ring from Billionaire

Published

When timeless style trumps net worth.

Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel is reportedly worth billions, but when he asked for supermodel Miranda Kerr’s hand in marriage, he did so holding a ring of classic, timeless style instead of a gaudier rock that many celebrity couples choose to represent their engagement, as US Weekly writes.

The article says that Spiegel presented Kerr – who announced her decision in the below Instagram post – “with an understated 2.5-carat ring featuring a round center stone flanked on both sides by a tapered diamond baguette.” (Though it’s still valued at $55,000, which isn’t exactly an accessible price point for lay folk.)

Speaking with the media outlet, jewelry expert Michael O’Conner says “Miranda’s ring is the quintessence of classic style and understatement. … Despite the reported billions Spiegel’s worth, the couple decided on a timeless style that proves they ‘don’t need to try.’ After so many over-the-top rings, this understated, more meaningful ring may be the newest — and best — we’ve seen in a while.”

I said yes!!!

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
