We present some of the most stunning celebrity engagement rings of 2022 from Kristen Stewart’s platinum band to Megan Fox’s toi et moi rare ring. When it comes to trend-setting bling, the biggest source of inspiration for engagement rings comes from the gems worn by style stars and socialites. Some of our favourite A-listers said ‘yes’ to a lifetime of love last year, each with a unique engagement ring that showcases the couple’s special bond.

Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly

In early 2022, Machine Gun Kelly proposed to Megan Fox with this dreamy engagement ring, created by the British jeweller Stephen Webster. The piece is, in fact, designed as two rings, one diamond and one emerald (the couple’s birthstones), in the toi et moi style. The toi et moi, which translates to ‘you and me’ in French, refers to a particular ring with two gemstones nestled side-by-side on a coiled band. 

Megan Fox’s ring is a pear-cut D-colour antique diamond and a pear-cut untreated Colombian emerald on two magnetic bands in the shape of thorns studded with pavé diamonds. Yet what is perhaps the most surprising design feature is that the talon like prongs that are designed to hurt Fox if she ever tried to take them off. “Love is pain!” Kelly quipped.

Kristen Stewart and Dylan Meyer

Kristen Stewart took a non-traditional approach to mark her engagement to Dylan Meyer, her girlfriend of three years. Eschewing eye-catching diamonds and coloured stones, Stewart’s engagement ring is effortlessly cool with a flat angular design that drops off into the curve of the band in a brushed platinum finish. Only Kristen Stewart could serve such a contemporary twist on the classic signet ring.

Avril Lavigne and Mod Sun

Canadian pop-punk icon Avril Lavigne became engaged to her partner and fellow musician Mod Sun in April 2022. Mod Sun, whose real name is Derek Ryan Smith, proposed in Paris with a heart-shaped diamond ring crafted by Caryn Alpert, founder of Beverly Hills jeweller XIV Karats. 

At its centre is a flawless 5-carat diamond mounted on a French micropavé setting that bears the words “Hi Icon” – the first thing Mod Son ever said to Lavigne – and an engraving of both their names. Set on a pavé diamond band, the sentimental rock is worth an estimated $750,000.
