Celebrity Engagement Ring Style: East-West Setting


East-West engagement rings feature a stone that lays horizontally. Celebrities including Catherine Zeta Jones and “Bachelor” Jason Mesnick are fans of this setting.

If you loved Rachel McAdams’s wedding ring in “The Time Traveler’s Wife,” you are probably a fan of the East-West engagement ring setting.

Most traditional engagement rings feature a diamond facing North and South. An alternative way to wear a diamond is with the stone lying horizontally. This setting has a classic vintage appeal and was most popular during eras when fewer accents were used on the sides of the center stone.

Catherine Zeta-Jones wears a Fred Leighton designed ten-carat marquis diamond with an East-West setting, and “Bachelor” Jason Mesnick proposed to Melissa Rycroft with an East-West three-carat marquis diamond by Neil Lane.

  • I have actually been looking for a picture of the ring featured in the movie. When I saw it I knew that was the exact ring for me; it’s simple and elegant and not too flashy. I absolutely love it!!! Do you have a picture of that ring shown in the movie? I really want to show my boyfriend…I have explained the style to him but I want to show him THE ring!
