You can always count on the stars to sport some serious ice as their wedding day approaches. If you’re in the midst of your own wedding planning, check out the wedding rings of the stars before making any big purchases.
In Style Weddings reports that on her wedding day, singer Katharine McPhee of American Idol wore a 3-carat brilliant-cut diamond set by jeweler Cindy Boudov. The rings also boasted platinum bands.
How did McPhee settle on a wedding gown to pair with her gorgeous rings? The star’s attitude was go big or go home!
“The thing about weddings is it’s the one time in your life that you actually get to wear a big, poofy dress,” she told CNN. “Unless you’re getting an Academy Award, you really don’t have opportunities like that, so you might as well take advantage of it.”
If you can’t find the wedding ring of your dreams, shop vintage or consider creating your own.
When Backstreet Boy Howie Dorough married Leigh Boniello, the bride sported a three-stone diamond engagement ring that was custom designed for the couple, according to the news source.
