Check Out Britney Spears’ Fit-for-a-Princess Engagement Ring!
So it turns out Britney actually DID get engaged last week—and now you can take a look at her engagement ring!
So remember at the end of last week when everyone was speculating about whether or not Britney Spears got engaged to boyfriend Jason Trawick? Well, it’s official—she did! In fact, it’s so official that she even changed her relationship status on her Facebook page from “in a relationship” to “engaged,” just in case anyone had any lingering doubts.
But enough about her Facebook page; let’s move on to what you’re really interested in. I bet you can’t wait to see the ring, am I right? Ladies and gents, feast your eyes on this stunner, courtesy of People:
And here’s one more shot, just for good measure:
The ring was designed be celebrity jeweler Neil Lane. Jason is a romantic,” Lane told People, “and when I asked him to tell me about Britney and what the ring would represent to them so I could find inspiration, his response was always the same—she is his princess!” You’ll notice that the ring looks something like a tiny tiara; the “princess” idea is why. It features a white 3.5-carat diamond set in a handmade platinum setting that Lane describes as a “mini crown.” There are also 90 small round diamonds set around the eternity band. Gorgeous? Just a little.
Lane, by the way, thinks that Brit Brit and Jason are in it for the long haul. “He’s deeply in love with her,” he said. “Britney is his princess and he is her knight in shining armor…. Every good fairtytale needs a princess, and now Britney has a ring fit for a princess!”
Honestly, I’m not really sure how I feel about this whole “princess” thing—Britney has spent pretty much her whole life being pushed and pulled by the people managing her career, and I’m pretty sure she imploded because of the lack of control she had over her own life. The idea of her being a damsel in distress who has to be rescued by a white knight seems like yet another instance of her agency being taken away from her.
But hey, they seem really happy together—in fact, Jason stepped down from the position of being her professional agent so they could focus on their personal life together—so at least this probably won’t end up being another Kevin Federline debacle. Let’s raise a toast to the happy couple!
