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

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!!!

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
