Kelly Clarkson’s Massive Ring (A Canary Diamond!)

We’re so excited for Kelly and her new fiancé Brandon, and now even more about her ring! She announced their engagement this weekend on Twitter and followed shortly after with a post to show off her gigantic diamond. She tweeted, “Everyone has been asking about my engagement ring, so here it is : ) It’s a yellow canary diamond with diamonds around it and Brandon designed it with Johnathon Arndt! They did an amazing job! I can’t wait to make Brandon’s ring with Johnathon as well!”

Get Kelly’s look and check out these killer stones too. Congrats to the happy couple!

Bring in the Bubbly

Champagne tones look fun and celebratory, much like its namesake drink of choice. What we especially love is that this iridescent pale gold gown can work with both elegant pearls and darker, edgier baubles. But the must-have accessory for this dress? A glass of bubbly!

Steal Galadriel’s Wedding-Inspired Look from The Hobbit

While we may love wedding dresses and all things pretty here at The Knot, don’t make the mistake and think we aren’t also hardcore The Lord of Rings fans (fashion and fantasy come hand in hand). That’s why in the middle of watching The Hobbit, the prequel to the Lord of the Rings trilogy, we had a major wardrobe-envy moment when Lady Galadriel walked in with her unworldly white gown. For brides who equally covet the look, here are some dresses that are worthy of the Elvin Queen.
