"Getting Engaged"
The Hottest Season

Statistics show that one-third of marriage proposals occur between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day.

Jewelry expert Michael O’Connor offers engagement ring options to suit the next potential crop of A-list brides. The Platinum Guild speculates on which celebs could be proposed to during this "hot" engagement season. For the record, we like the Tacori ring the best -- love the vintage styling.

For Vintage style brides like Diane Kruger and Angelina Jolie: Platinum and diamond ring by Kirk Kara (semi-mount $4,765)

For Modern style brides like Vanessa Hudgens and Blake Lively: Platinum and diamond ring by Mark Patterson (semi-mount $2,995)

For Classic style brides like Jennifer Love Hewitt or Anne Hathaway: Platinum and diamond solitaire by Hearts on Fire (semi-mount $1,400)

For Boho-Chic style brides like Kate Hudson or Mary-Kate Olsen: Platinum and diamond ring by Tacori (with center diamond $5,090)
