The Hunger Games
actor Evan Ross proposed to Ashlee Simpson in January of 2014 with an unforgettable engagement ring. This breathtaking ring looks like something right out of a fairytale. It’s Edwardian in style, meaning it resembles ring from the time period that began that just after Queen Victoria died. Her son Edward became king of England upon her death. Ornate Edwardian style was popular from 1901 to 1910, the time period of King Edward’s reign.
Ashlee’s beautiful ruby and diamond navette (marquise) shaped engagement ring looks like a sugary piece of candy from an old-world candy maker. Considering her beau, Evan Ross is the son of legendary pop music diva Diana Ross, it’s no surprise that Ashlee’s engagement ring is so extraordinary. After all, Diana Ross has been the Queen of Bling for decades. Evan is certainly used to seeing the women he loves bedecked in fabulous jewels!
AshleeSimpson and Evan Ross obviously share a special bond.
But even though Evan Ross grew up with a famous, sparkle-loving mother, there was an added incentive to present Ashlee Simpson with an over-the-top engagement ring. Specifically, husband number one, musician Peter Wentz with whom Ashlee had a son, Bronx. Evan made sure his engagement ring blew Peter’s 4 carat ring out of the water.
With a center marquise cut diamond of 5 carats bedecked with calibrated cut rubies, and over 140 accent diamonds on every surface, this ring rocks. Evan collaborated with legendary jeweler to the stars, Neil Lane, to design the ring. It’s based in part on an antique-style ring in his archives. Ashlee’s mother had a say in its design, as well.

Her amazing ring can’t go unnoticed.
Ashlee and Evan tied the knot at Diana Ross’ gorgeous estate in prestigious Greenwich, Connecticut on August 30, 2014. The couple is expecting their first child, a girl, in June 2015. And everywhere the paparazzi catches a glimpse of them, the couple is all smiles. It’s clear that for Ashlee Simpson, Evan is her long-awaited Prince Charming. But she knew that before he gave her that incredible fairy tale engagement ring.
