Our Favorite Celebrity Engagement Rings | Geneva Seal | Chicago

Geneva Seal Fine Jewelry & Timepieces, a Chicago engagement ring house, has been discussing celebrity engagement rings from Scarlett Johansson's vintage Art Deco style to Girls actress Allison Williams' classy conventional solitaire cut engagement ring.

While many stars choose over-the-top engagement rings, it's nice to see Mila Kunis rock a simple band with a round diamond. No baguettes. No insets. It's not ostentatious and she doesn't need a security team with her to wear it. It's a lot like her and Ashton Kutcher

Joe Manganiello and Sofia Vergara became engaged in December 2014 and her stunning oval-cut engagement ring takes our breath away. George Clooney presented Amal Clooney with a seven-carat-emerald-cut diamond engagement ring formed in a platinum setting.

Olivia Wilde and Halle Berry have two of the most original engagement rings we've seen. Olivia's fiance, Jason Sedukis chose to surround this circle diamond with a halo of emeralds to match Wilde's eyes (swoon). Halle Berry's three-stone ring setting is definitely glamorous and allows her unique personality to shine through with different combinations of diamonds and gemstones. The emerald in an emerald cut engagement ring is absolutely stunning.

Kanye West proposed to Kim Kardashian with a 15-carat diamond engagement ring at San Francisco's AT&T Park.

Matthew McConaughey picked out a vintage-style engagement ring - and wedding bands for the exceptionally gorgeous Camila Alves.

Just like relationships, each engagement ring has it's own unique identity so when you walk down the aisle, make sure you visit us at Geneva Seal Fine Jewelry & Timepieces in Chicago to pick a ring that mirrors the love you feel for one another.

OMEGA greeted George Clooney, Alex Kats and Leonard Goldberg of Geneva Seal Fine Jewelry & Timepieces in Chicago in true NASA fashion, with a spaceship entrance to The OMEGA Moon.

The magical “On The Moon” dinner was prepared by A Fare Extraordinaire and OMEGA flew in French chef Valentin Neraudeau from Paris to create the menu and mixologist Justin Darnes from London to design the incredible cocktails.

The lady of the night Lily Koppel, author of the “The Astronaut Wives Club,” welcomed Clooney to the stage, calling him the  “man on the moon.” He talked about the significance of the Apollo 13 Mission.

“It was a huge part of the optimism at the time when you really believed that anything was possible. And I remember the idea of landing on the moon and I remember (thinking) if we could do that, honestly we could do anything,” he said. ”If you go and look at that actual space craft, the idea that anyone got into it is crazy. It’s like getting into a ’57 Chevy and saying I’m going to take it to the moon and back. It’s just the bravest thing I’ve ever seen in my life.”

Clooney shared the stage with Omega president Stephen Urquhart and astronauts Jim Lovell and Tom Stafford. Lovell presented the Silver Snoopy Award to Omega. The award, which he created in 1970, was designed to uplift and honor an organization that did something unique, he said.

Lovell showed off the Omega watch he wore 75 hours in space. “The bezel is gone and the crystal is cracked,” he said, describing the Omega brand as “the best watch in the universe.”

On display were symbolic and iconic OMEGA watches. The historic significance OMEGA watches hold is unmatched and Geneva Seal Fine Jewelry & Timepieces in Chicago is proud to welcome Omega to our home.

George Clooney wore an Omega Watch During His Wedding Day

Without doubt one of the appeals of a mechanical watch is the pleasure derived from the sense of wearing a piece of history on the wrist. This tangible link to the technology of a more romantic age transforms a timepiece into something more than simply a tool or a trinket.

So in some ways it is surprising that there is one relatively recent development has come to dominate the market to the virtual exclusion of its predecessor - the automatic movement, that first became commercially available in the Twenties. And while the power of all watches is stored in the spring, whether wound up by an oscillating weight or manually using finger and thumb, it seemed that in this area convenience is our most important consideration as the vast majority of all mechanical watches sold today are automatic.

That is why it is such a pleasure to come across a new manually wound piece such as the Omega De Ville Trésor Master Co-Axial - especially as when the model in question is so handsome. Handsome enough, indeed, for George Clooney to sport on his wedding day. Deliberately retro in feel, it is inspired by a 1949 piece that shared its name. The honeycomb dial, hands, hour markers and crystal are all domed to give it the feel of its forebear, though its super slim 40mm case is also completely contemporary, made possible by the Omega caliber 8511 - no rotor means less bulk. And call us old-fashioned if you like, but the pleasure of winding it up every day is all part of the pleasure. (via GQmagazine.com)
