I think shine of the diamond ring has not been showcased properly in this snap. Nobody can judge whether this engagement ring is real or otherwise. However, the couple looks nice, and I show best wishes for their married life.
Seven-time Grammy Award winner John Legend exchanged vows with Sports Illustrated supermodel Chrissy Teigen in an intimate wedding ceremony at Lake Como, Italy, on Saturday. Lake Como is the place they first fell in love.
The model looked ravishing in a Vera Wang gown, and sparkling on her left hand was the breathtaking cushion-cut diamond engagement ring that made headlines when Legend gave it to her during the holiday season of 2011.
The couple had been dating for seven years and became engaged in late 2011 while vacationing in the Maldives. At the time, Teigen dished a few tidbits about her ring…
“It’s none of my doing at all. It was all left up to him,” she told InStyle.com. “All I know is that it’s a cushion cut, and I had never even heard of that before.”
The cushion cut is considered a “fancy” diamond shape and is often selected as a progressive alternative to the more common oval- or princess-cut diamond. It’s essentially a “pillow” shape — a square outline with softened, rounded corners. The modern cushion cut is based on an antique cushion cut that can trace its history to the 1830s.
Teigen told People in May that her talented 34-year-old fiancé would perform “All of Me” at the wedding — a brand new song that was written especially for her. The song is featured on his latest album, Love in the Future.
In January of this year, Tiegen half-joked to the New York Daily News during the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue launch party that Legend had until the end of the year to tie the knot, or she was going to “hit the road.” Seems like Legend got the message.
