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!!!

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
