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 Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
