Emily Ratajkowski’s unique two-stone engagement ring has raised the proposal bar

From paperclips to princess-cuts.

While we were obsessed with every detail of Emily Ratajkowski’s wedding outfit (the Zara trouser suit! The wide brimmed hat!), there was one thing that was missing from the day – namely, her engagement ring. The model revealed earlier this February that her husband Sebastian Bear McClard had proposed to her with a placeholder paper clip ring, however the couple have finally upgraded from stationery and gone full sparkle in a recent Instagram post.

Emily showed off her new bling last week, posting two images to Instagram of the massive stunner. The bespoke Alison Lou two-stone ring combined a princess- and pear-cut diamond nestled side by side, a unique take she revealed more about in an interview with Vogue.

She revealed that she and her beau had designed the ring together after more than fifty sketches, saying, ‘We liked the idea of two stones instead of one and spent a long time looking at rings with multiple stones for inspiration. At one point it included a ruby as the second stone, [but] ultimately we loved the idea of the femininity of the pear contrasted with the architecture of the princess.’

While you won’t be able to score your own EmRata original, we did manage to find something sort of similar below by Messika.

If you haven’t heard the Emily Ratajkowski paper clip engagement story, it’s a bit of a wild one.

She revealed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, ‘He proposed to me at Minetta Tavern and he didn’t have a ring so I was like, “mmm, nah”. And then he took the paper clip that the bill was paid with and made me a ring which I actually thought was really romantic.’

It wasn’t just their engagement rings that they made themselves, as they also DIY-ed their own wedding rings using gold that they casually picked up in Chinatown (as you do).

She continued, ‘We walked into Chinatown and bought a little piece of, like an ounce of gold, and he was like, “We’ll melt down the gold and make the rings.” Right, so I was like, “I just don’t see us melting down gold, that just seems kind of difficult.” But then he ended up going to some store in Midtown — this is the night before our wedding, by the way — and this very nice man was like, “I know how to do that.”’

‘So we came into his studio after hours and we actually hammered them out, the whole thing, used a little blow torch,’ Emily said, ‘They were supposed to be temporary rings but now I’m very attached and I really don’t want to get rid of [mine]. I just feel like making it yourself, like could you be more personal, really?’

Emily Ratajkowski’s Wardrobe Is So Much More Than Just Bikinis

If you’re an avid follower of Emily Ratajkowski’s Instagram account, then you’ll know her style often consists of stellar bikini and one-piece looks (hey, if you’ve got it). But outside of holidaying, EmRata has some incredible outfits that are always bang on trend. Whether that’s trying a yellow dress, a gingham skirt or an off-the-shoulder top, she’s always dedicated to showcasing the coolest and most wearable pieces around right now.

The key component for making everything look great is that nothing she wears is ever overly fussy—whether that’s her clothes, her hair or her makeup. As a result, we’ve admired many an outfit of hers, whether that’s on the red carpet or just out and about in L.A. Adding to this is Ratajkowski’s sartorial trump card, which is that she knows what suits her figure and isn’t afraid to use that power to her fashion advantage. Keep scrolling, and click through our gallery to uncover the secrets of Emily Ratajkowski’s style.

Style Notes: Try switching up your go-to black leggings for a pair of biker shorts—ab-baring cropped sweatshirt optional.  On Emily Ratajkowski: Kith shorts
Style Notes: Combining a studded suede jacket with a maroon pair of trousers, she tops it off with the embroidered mules that we’ve seen all over Instagram. On Emily Ratajkowski: Alberta Ferretti mules.
Style Notes: One of the easiest and most flattering pieces for everyone to wear? The black roll-neck. Even better is when you tuck it into a pair of high-waisted jeans.
Style Notes: Of all the biggest trends we’ve seen Ratajkowski wear, the geek-chic glasses look is one she’s particularly fond of. On Emily Ratajkowski: Jason Wu.
Style Notes: A two-piece? Check. In millennial pink? Check. Plus a pair of barely there sandals? Check, check, check. On Emily Ratajkowski: Altuzarra suit.
Style Notes: While this trend has been going on for some time now (it was massive in 2016, as well as this year), Ratajkowski knows how to coordinate this accessory with the rest of her outfit. By keeping it in black, she matches her top and boots. Add a touch of colour with your bag.
Style Notes: Ah, the gingham trend. What were our summer wardrobes before this came into our lives? Here, during New York Fashion Week in February, Ratajkowski was ahead of the curve by wearing a checked skirt. On Emily Ratajkowski: Michael Kors skirt.
Style Notes: If there’s one thing we’ve learnt about fashion over the past year or so, it’s that the striped shirt is a good look, whatever form it comes in. Whether that’s a classic button-down or a deconstructed version, such as this one on Ratajkowski, it will make any outfit super chic. On Emily Ratajkowski: Monse Off-the-Shoulder Wrap-Effect Striped Silk-Twill Top (£528) and trousers.
Style Notes: Despite the plethora of street style shots of stylish women in robes over jeans, we’re still massively enjoying this trend. Do what Ratajkowski does, and make a statement by wearing a graphic tee underneath. On Emily Ratajkowski: Jonathan Simkhai Feminist AF T-Shirt (£73).
Style Notes: Underwear can definitely be outerwear in Ratajkowski’s world. This ensemble is a chic bodysuit under a skirt, paired with hold-ups and open-toed sandals. It shouldn’t work, but the strict use of thick black fabric means it does. On Emily Ratajkowski: DKNY.
Style Notes: For anyone who’s a fan of La La Land, then you’ll know why the yellow dress became such a big trend. Here, at the Valentino show, EmRata proves just how romantic a hue it can be. On Emily Ratajkowski: Valentino dress.
Style Notes: Matching co-ords are a great alternative to dresses, but the khaki colour and culottes make this much cooler than your average, meaning she can ditch accessories altogether. On Emily Ratajkowski: Solace London.
Style Notes: Yes, she loves an itsy-bitsy teeny-weeny bikini, but sometimes more coverage does equal more fashion brownie points (especially in red).
Style Notes: We fell out of love with the printed dress for a while, such was our dedication to the minimal look, but thanks to brands such as Rixo, we’re firmly for over-the-top bold frocks.
Style Notes: The naked dress trend isn’t going away anytime soon, and this was a great way to do the look without being too naked.
Style Notes: If you want to dress down a cute playsuit or short dress, opt for a pair of flat black boots and a Western-inspired belt. Just don’t forget the Gucci bag. On Emily Ratajkowski: Gucci bag.
Style Notes: Whether high heels or flats, having a ribbon detail on your shoes makes your whole look seem so much fresher.  On Emily Ratajkowski: Brock Collection dress; Altuzarra shoes.
Style Notes: As we’ve said before, this is the style tip bloggers have been stealing from David Beckham. While we can imagine why you might be hesitant about trying it, the baker boy hat is actually pretty cool. If you love Ratajkowski’s look, shop the 13 best new-in pieces.
