The pairing of Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra seemed to come out of left field — that kid from the Disney Channel with an Indian goddess? When did that happen? Rumors started circulating after the singer and actress walked the Met Gala red carpet together in 2017, but it wasn’t until a year later that Jonas made things official via a heart-eyed emoji on Instagram.
Once the news was out, it became clear that Jonas and Chopra were in the throes of a full-on fairytale romance. Jonas proposed while the couple were on vacation in Crete — at midnight following Chopra’s birthday. Romantic as that sounds, Jonas’s most impressive move happened several weeks earlier; he shut down the Tiffany & Co. boutique in London to shop for Chopra’s engagement ring, keeping the whole thing top secret.
The ring Jonas settled on is equally impressive: a cushion-cut center stone, estimated to be approximately 4 carats, flanked by tapered baguettes and set in platinum. Cushion-cuts, with their softly rounded edges, have a vintage appeal and the side-stone setting is one of the most timeless engagement ring styles available. This all adds up to a classic ring rendered par excellence. Below, a few other examples of this perennially popular engagement ring style.
