It contains a flawless stone of seven superb carats, maybe a tad more. That’s the diamond engagement ring on which George Clooney spent almost half a million pounds. Mr. Clooney assisted the jewelers in designing the ring. Its exquisite, ethically mined, emerald-cut diamond fairly glistens with sublime brilliance. In addition to the magnificence of the large stone, the ring contains two cheeky baguettes, which are smaller stones that both flank and accent the main stone. Baguette diamonds usually have 14 facets, whereas emerald-cut stones have between 50 and 58 facets.
Both are less fiery than princess or round-cut diamonds but present a dignified appearance without ostentation. The stones are set in a simple platinum band that is decorated with elegant grooves. British customs inspectors weren’t impressed or star struck, however, back in May when Clooney’s bride, Amal Alamuddin, strolled through Heathrow Airport wearing the ring. The couple will likely owe 100,000 pounds in duty because the stone came from outside the European Union!
Such things must be far from their minds, however, as they both descended on Venice on September 25, 2014 in preparation for their wedding. He looked sharp and dapper in a gray suit, and she was gorgeous in tasteful, black-and-white, horizontal stripes. Once in Venice, they boarded a water taxi that was appropriately named “Amore.” Joining them were supermodel Cindy Crawford and her husband, Rande Gerber.
Festivities took place at the Hotel Cipriani on the island of Giudecca. Friday’s reception and Monday’s wedding include guests such as Matt Damon, Sandra Bullock and Ellen Barkin. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie also attended, as has Cate Blanchett. All of the guests had waterborne police escorts to keep the ravenous paparazzi away from their water taxis. Mr. Clooney is said to have granted exclusive photography rights to American Vogue in exchange for a substantial donation to a charity he selected.
As expected, security personnel have been extremely diligent, and staff members attending to the wedding celebration and ceremony were issued microchips and required to sign confidentiality agreements. Rumors had abounded for months because Mr. Clooney is a regular at the renowned Venice Film Festival, and the happy couple didn’t disappoint the Italian city of 118 islands that dates to the middle of the fifth century.
