The Emily in Paris star Lily Collins recently became engaged to Charlie McDowell, on a romantic, sunny trip to New Mexico. McDowell designed the bespoke ring himself, with the help of a jewellery designer. The unusual engagement ring features a bezel set rose-cut diamond ring, set in 18ct gold with a chunky brushed band. The understated, bohemian style of this engagement ring perfectly suits Lily’s laid back style.
