When deciding on the engagement ring, choosing a metal type could be a little difficult. Geneva Seal in Chicago recommends considering her preferred jewelry style when deciding on the precious metal of her engagement ring. 

Yellow Gold is for the bride who wears a lot of yellow gold jewelry. Choosing this metal for her engagement ring will complement her current style and taste. Yellow gold is a classic choice for engagement rings, complementing those with warmer skin tones.

White Gold is for the bride who wears mostly white gold or sterling silver. White gold offers a smooth contemporary appeal and blends well with other jewelry pieces and clothing colors.

If you're unable to decide on a metal for your engagement ring, go with both. An engagement ring similar to the 2 carat round cut diamond engagement rings below are always a timeless option.

Did Johnny Depp Start a New Engagement Ring Trend?

As Johnny Depp promotes his new film "Transcendence" in China, people everywhere have diverted their attention to his left ring finger. Is the sexiest man alive off the market? Indeed he is. Depp recently confirmed his engagement to the lucky lady, Amber Read, 27. When asked about the engagement ring he's been rocking, Depp played cool, "I'm wearing a chick's engagement ring on my finger, being a fella," he said. "As far as you know... because I might be a woman!"

Hey, we're all for men wearing some serious engagement ring bling. Geneva Seal's very own, Alex Kats said, "A man who is confident enough to wear a woman's engagement ring, shows you just how comfortable he is in his own skin." We fully support this trend, and would love to see more men rocking out with diamonds on their left ring finger.

Now let's talk about the sweet engagement ring. Our expert jeweler, Leonard Goldberg, gives us his take on Depp's jewelry style, "Based on the time frame of the ring design, I'm thinking this is a 3-4 carat vintage European cut round center diamond with 3 graduated round diamonds on each side, and a tapered shank with Corinthian style hand engraved design."

We're so in love with this ring, we can't take our eyes off it (or him)! Congratulations to the happy couple, and thank you Mr. Depp for once again, straying from the pack.

Now, let's get to the bottom of that bling. Reports have suggested the pear shaped diamond engagement ring to be between 12-15 carats, split shank design, a platinum setting with a halo of pave diamonds around it. Our very own jeweler, Leonard Goldberg, would quote a similar piece, custom made, between $1-2.5 Million depending on the quality of the diamond.

Ghalichi, with a net worth of $2.5 Million, isn't sure she wants to keep the ring. E! Online spoke with the Persian Barbie, she said, "The only thing is, now I'm not sure that's the ring I want! It's so big—where am I going to wear something like that?"

Oh darling, with a stunning engagement ring like that like that, you could walk around naked.
