There is no denying that Amal Alamuddin is an extraordinarily beautiful woman. But she is also a highly accomplished British barrister (trial lawyer). This brainy Lebanese-born beauty first caught George Clooney’s eye during a charity event back in 2013. He was instantly smitten. She played hard-to-get, not convinced of his sincerity. After all, the 52 year old movie star and heartthrob was America’s most desirable confirmed bachelor. But George would not be daunted...
Fast forward to April of 2014. After a romantic, whirlwind courtship spanning two continents, George proposed to 36 year old Amal on bended knee. When the world’s most desirable bachelor decides to get engaged, you can bet the ring will be nothing short of spectacular. He presented Amal with an enormous 7 carat emerald cut diamond engagement ring as elegant and breathtaking as she is.
Wedding day bliss between Amal and George Clooney.
A diamond must be nearly perfect to take an emerald cut because it has so few facets to hide any flaws. But Amal’s 7 carat emerald cut sparkler is also canary yellow
in color, making it extremely rare. This amazing diamond and the accent diamonds on either side of it were also mined under conflict-free conditions. That fact is is extremely important to the world renowned couple who are both avid human rights advocates.
Mr. and Mrs. George Clooney.
Amal’s engagement ring was designed by renowned jeweler to the stars, Jacob Arabo, of Jacob & Co. He was given precise instructions from George Clooney during the process.

Clearly George wanted to make sure that the ring would be as rare and beautiful as his beloved. George and Amal were married in Venice on September 27, 2014. It was the year anniversary of the day they first met at that charity event.
