There are engagement rings, and then there are celebrity engagement rings. A-listers tend to get engaged with some of the biggest and most unique diamonds and for that reason, their rings are in a league of their own.

In fact, a handful of these famous diamonds have single-handedly sparked engagement ring trends and caused a massive spike in purchases inspired by the real deal. According to Olivia Landau, who's a fourth-generation gemologist and founder and CEO of The Clear Cut, there are three celebrity engagement rings in particular that have influenced more ring purchases than any others.

Curious to find out which stars own these mega-influential diamonds? Keep scrolling to read about each celeb and why their ring had (or continues to have) such an impactful affect.

Blake Lively: Oval-Shaped Diamonds

"Although Blake Lively was engaged a few years ago, her engagement ring has single-handedly started the biggest trend in bridal! Before Blake, the demand for oval diamonds just not there. Ever since her oval diamond on a thing three-row pave band hit the scene, the demand for oval diamonds has only gotten stronger. People love the oval shape because it is feminine and finger flattering. Oval diamonds show their carat weight well and take up a nice amount of real estate on the finger. Who doesn’t love that?"
