Amal Clooney’s Ethical Elegance: The Story Behind Her $500k Engagement Ring from George(Photos)

April 6, 2024




In the realm of Hollywood glamour, few couples shine as brightly as George and Amal Clooney. Their love story took a dazzling turn in 2014 when George, the renowned ER star at 62, got down on one knee and proposed to his barrister fiancée, Amal, 46, with a breathtaking diamond sparkler. What sets this engagement ring apart is not just its beauty, but its ethical significance.

Renowned diamond expert Maxwell Stone from Steven Stone sheds light on the remarkable piece, revealing that Amal’s ring features a seven-carat emerald-cut diamond, flanked by two tapered baguettes, all set on a platinum band. Valued at $500,000 (£410,000), this stunning piece represents a rising trend in the industry: ethical diamonds.



But what exactly makes a diamond “ethical”? Ethical diamonds, as explained by Stone, are mined responsibly, ensuring the safety and fair treatment of miners while upholding ethical mining practices. It’s a choice that reflects George Clooney’s admiration for his wife’s commitment to human rights activism.

He goes on to explain why George may have chosen these stones. “Considered the most classic style, emerald cut diamonds reflect broader and more dramatic flashes of light and are less fiery than brilliant cut diamonds,” Maxwell Stone says. “The symbolic shape is associated with a couple’s strong love, commitment and compassion to another.” The three-stone detailing, symbolizing the past, present, and future of their relationship, adds an extra layer of significance.



The proposal itself, as shared by George on The Drew Barrymore Show, had its comedic moments. With the ring stashed in a kitchen drawer, George’s romantic gesture was nearly derailed when Amal initially mistook it for a forgotten trinket. However, after a 20-minute wait and an unexpected playlist, she said yes, sealing their bond.

Their wedding, described as “intimate yet vibrant,” took place at the Aman Canal Grande hotel in Venice, Italy, a fitting location for the couple who first crossed paths in the romantic country. Among the guests were Hollywood luminaries such as Matt Damon, Emily Blunt, and Cindy Crawford, capturing the essence of their star-studded romance.

As George and Amal continue to inspire with their love story, the ethical symbolism of her engagement ring serves as a poignant reminder of their shared values and enduring commitment.
