Sophie Turner has found her sun-and-stars… in more ways than one. The Game of Thrones actress and Joe Jonas announced their engagement Sunday, October 15, both posting photos of her brilliant engagement ring on Instagram.
Turner’s pear-shaped diamond, a celeb-favorite cut as of late, is set in gold and stacked elegantly against a dainty, matching eternity band comprised of delicate tiny diamonds. “I love the double band,” Bliss Lau, a New York based designer who specializes in custom engagement rings, tells The Knot. “To me, that symbolizes a balance that they will have in their relationship.”
Former Disney Channel star Jonas proposed with a beaming pear-shaped diamond, which is believed to be three carats. “It feels perfect for Sophie because she is elegant and beautiful,” says Lau. “But she has a sexy, naughty edge to her which is why we love her so much.”
The jeweler adds that the prongs—which she describes as “very Game of Thrones”—help accentuate the stone. “The elongated pear diamond is spot on,” Lau continues. “[It] matches her as a tall woman… and it fits her proportions. Additionally, the low-profile setting is great for her active lifestyle.”
Indeed, both Turner and Jonas have yet to share a red carpet moment together, but the two will be even more active now that they’ve started co-parenting a Siberian Husky puppy.
“A ring is meant to embody the wearer, and in this case, I think Joe did a great job,” Lau concludes. “I can’t wait to see the dress she wears.”
This will be the first marriage for the HBO beauty, 21, and the DNCE frontman, 28, who first started dating in 2016.
