Elizabeth Olsen’s engagement ring is a big emerald with a diamond surround

Elizabeth Olsen at the World premiere of 'Avengers: Endgame' held at the LA Convention Center in Los Angeles, USA on April 22, 2019.

We recently heard that Elizabeth Olsen and Robbie Arnett had become engaged. They’ve been dating for a few years and even though Olsen’s romantic life was messy/shady at one point, pre-Arnett, there doesn’t seem to be any drama with their relationship. They just seem solid and fine and I bet they’re really happy together, but again, what do I know.

Anyway, we’re now at the point where we can talk about something fun: Elizabeth’s engagement ring! Elizabeth was pap’d out and about this weekend and she was wearing a big rock on her ring finger. According to People, it appears to be a big emerald with a square cut, with a diamond surround. People Mag actually calls it a halo, but I don’t think this surround qualifies as a halo. Here’s a photo:

I never would have thought that Elizabeth Olsen would be down for a colored stone. Doesn’t she just seem like the type to want a simple, super-classic white diamond? Maybe a vintage diamond ring, but definitely a diamond. I kind of love that this is such a surprise, and hell, emeralds are making a comeback. I had forgotten this, but did you know that Jackie Kennedy’s engagement ring was emerald and diamond too? Olivia Wilde’s engagement ring is a circular diamond with a pave emerald halo too – which is too much for me, but I bet that suits her. Does this suit Elizabeth though?

    I like her ring!
    I noticed she was wearing it at comic con too last month, but on her right hand.

  2. MachineElf says:

    Love her ring! I’ve always liked sapphires or emeralds for engagement and wedding rings.

    • original_kellybean says:

      I have a beautiful emerald engagement ring. I saw one online and my fiance got a similar one made for me. The only thing is that emeralds scratch easily. Mine is really dinged up after 6 years.

      • Miatagal says:

        I love emeralds! Sad to hear yours is dinged up after only six years.

      • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

        Yes! Natural emeralds have inclusions and are fragile. Good luck with your ring, I hope it lasts a long time for you!

      • LAB says:

        I have an emerald engagement ring and the jeweler that made it designed it with a bezel to protect the stone because they can crack/break. Nearly a decade out, and it’s still looking pretty good. We know there is a chance it may break but I figure that’s when we will make fun earrings out of it.
        When I see big ones like this I just hope they are careful with them!

    • Kitten says:

      I LOVE it. I’m not one to spend to much time thinking about engagement rings but the only thing I DO know for sure is that I want it to be an emerald.

      @original kellybean-That’s what I worry about most: how soft the stone is. Still, I’m jealous of your emerald ring!

    • Snazzy says:

      Saphires ae are my favorite, emeralds a close second. Love this ring

  3. Erinn says:

    I love it. Emerald is my birthstone, but it’s also a pretty hardy colored stone. Sapphires and Rubies are a little harder if you’re someone who’s clumsy/works with their hands, but emeralds aren’t far off.

    • Anitas says:

      Really? I think emeralds are considerably more fragile which is why they’re not often used in engagement rings. My engagement ring has an emerald stone and while I love it I only wear it for special occasions – I really doubt it would’ve survived everyday wear and tear.


      • Erinn says:

        I mean, they’re around 8 mohs, they’re not SUPER fragile. They’re definitely acceptable every day jewelry, but a lot of that depends on the setting and what you actually do. I mean, I wouldn’t be submerging it in hot water all day, or wearing it if I was working in a warehouse or something. But I work an office job, and despite being clumsy, I wouldn’t be worried.

        The person in that article gave his wife a tourmaline engagement ring – which is only about a 7. He’s had to recut/polish it for her, but I’d say anything around a 7 is going to run that risk. It was also something like a 10 carat ring to begin with – which brings a huge surface area to be smacking into things.

        Like I said, it might not work for people who hit their hands into things often, or are around chemicals or whatever. But it could certainly be an every day jewelry piece with the right setting. I also think there’s a lot of other factors at play, like the actual quality of the gemstone, the cut (precision vs mass produced for speed and size), whether it’s been treated to hide potential weak spots, etc.

        It’s ultimately why I ended up with a montana sapphire over an emerald right hand ring though – because I know I’m not the most gentle with jewelry.

      • Anitas says:

        Everyday jewellery, sure, if it’s earrings or a pendant. Rings though are not recommended. You don’t have to be clumsy for your emerald ring to chip, or working in a warehouse – if you wear it every day it’s bound to happen.
        I don’t really wear rings except for my wedding band so I don’t mind only taking it out for special occasions – it’s what I would’ve done anyway regardless of the stone – but anyone who plans to wear their ring daily really shouldn’t get an emerald stone. Unless they don’t mind doing a lot of polishing and an eventual replacement.

    • Lola says:

      It’s the other way around, actually! Corundum rings are much more suited to day-to-day than emerald ones.

    • Algernon says:

      The Mohs scale isn’t directly proportional, though. With each decrease in hardness, the stone softens by multiple factors. A diamond is a 10 and a sapphire a 9, but a diamond is 90x harder than a sapphire. The toughest emerald will be about a 7.5, which is more than 100x softer than a diamond. I wanted a vintage ring with a colored gemstone, but the jeweler was very practical about daily wear of an emerald. I got a sapphire, and later got an emerald cocktail ring for our anniversary. It’s beautiful but boy is that stone chipped.

      • Erinn says:

        I did chicken out a bit, and went with the sapphire in the end for my rhr. But I turn 30 next may, and the family keeps asking if I want a bigger, combined gift. Maybe I’ll get myself a pendant made rather than a ring.

      • Algernon says:

        I don’t regret my ering at all, but I am glad the emerald is just for dressing up because I don’t think it would survive daily wear. If you get an emerald, don’t plan on wearing it all the time. A pendant necklace would be lovely!

    • N says:

      When I was a kid I would watch HSN because they taught me about jewelry and gemstones. Now, I have you!

  4. Trillian says:

    This ring looks like something my grandmother would wear.

    • Jb says:

      Agreed. It’s a pretty ring but yea it looks like costume jewelry that my grandma would wear.

    • Jegede says:


      Love her.🤍 Hate the ring.😝😝🤢🤢

      But I also hated Princess Diana’s engagement ring and all that resembles it.

    • Bee says:

      Yes, my first thought upon seeing this was “That is an old ladies ring”. Perhaps it’s an heirloom from his or her side of the family? I can’t imagine choosing this otherwise, but each to their own.

  5. manda says:

    Emeralds are gorgeous! So are rubies. I’m not sure I’d want something like that for my wedding ring, but I don’t roll with gigantic gem stones or precious jewels. So, to me, that just looks like a cocktail ring. I wish I was fabulous enough to own and wear such fabulous jewels! Instead, I have a white diamond ring with a white gold band, and when I want a splash of color, I wear my turquoise necklace

    • BeanieBean says:

      I knew someone with a good-sized coral surrounded by diamonds engagement ring. So pretty!

  6. Lanne says:

    The only worry with an emerald is that they have natural inclusions, which make the stone less durable (inclusions aren’t a bad thing—they can often indicate where the emerald comes from). The “emerald cut” (square/rectangle with long facets) was developed to optimize the durability of an emerald. So it would be wise to remove the ring when doing the dishes, grubbing in the garden, or playing sports.

  7. Cate says:

    My engagement ring is a white sapphire. People always comment about it. I love it to bits.

    • Myriam says:

      I have a blue sapphire and get tons of compliments. My hubby doesn’t believe in diamonds for a variety of reasons. And he wanted to get me a one-of-a-kind ring that no one could duplicate/buy, did his research and decided on the sapphire, which is also my birthstone. He got it custom made as well. I adore my engagement ring to the point where I balled out crying when I thought I lost it. It was on the side table lol

  8. Maria says:

    So pretty – the emerald is gorgeous.
    I love engagement rings! I have been looking into moissanite vs diamonds because I like the brilliance more- does anyone have any experience with moissanite jewelry?
    Also, what about aquamarines?

    • M says:

      I have an aquamarine ring that belonged to my grandmother. It’s pear-shaped with a diamond halo and everyone thinks it’s my engagement ring. I get so many compliments on it. I wear it almost everyday and don’t have any trouble.

    • Miatagal says:

      I have a number of moissonite pieces set in 14 kt gold in necklaces and earrings. You would not know the difference! My engagement and wedding rings are 3 carets of real diamonds though,

    • Kylie says:

      I have an emerald cut moissanite e-ring and I love it! I was never interested in a diamond but still wanted a white stone, and I think moissanite is by far the best alternative. I LOVE the rainbows it shoots off in the right light, and it makes me so happy when I look at it.

      • Sleanne says:

        We replaced my rings for our 10th and I came sooooo close to moissanite. I fell in love with the rainbow shoots too. The day before I went to purchase it, my friend dragged me to an estate sale and I ended up buying the most beautiful flawless, clear, round diamond ring and band set for a crazy low price at auction on a whim. I brought the ring to the dealer I had an appointment with the following day and he reset the whole ring into the setting I was looking at for the moissanite stone. Cost me a quarter of what I wanted to spend and I am thrilled with it. I do miss the rainbows though and my mother thinks its creepy I’m wearing “someone else’s wedding rings”. I liked the whole space-diamonds-vibe. Felt more like me than traditional diamonds – but I’m a bargain hunter at heart, so I guess it is very me after all.

    • Erinn says:

      Oh, I love them. I don’t own any, but I LOVE the obnoxious rainbow sparkle they give out. I think as long as you’re going with a reputable dealer, you’d be happy with it.

    • Maria says:

      Thank you to everyone!
      Erinn- the “obnoxious rainbow sparkle” is addictive! LOL

  9. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Green is my favorite color so I love the idea of an emerald engagement ring. I prefer Olivia Wilde’s ring style but this one is lovely too.

    • Lena says:

      Oh I love Olivia’s ring too. And it’s truly original, in that I haven’t seen it copied everywhere. Seems like engagement rings become fads and I get sick of them after awhile even though originally I liked them. Like halo rings about five years ago, now it’s huge ovals with a skinny skinny pave band like Blake Lively’s. Sick of those!

  10. Harla says:

    I was never much of a fan of emeralds but then my hubby bought me a beautiful emerald ring for our 20th anniversary and now I’m a total fan!

  11. BANANIE says:

    I really enjoy sapphire and emerald rings, but I think I would prefer them for a cocktail rings rather than an engagement ring.

    Only because I’m really picky about my clothes and making sure things coordinate. I think it would be amazing to spice up a dress for an event with a pop of color or something fun, but on an everyday basis I wouldn’t want to have to coordinate my clothes with something as striking as green.
    So that’s the main reason I prefer diamonds to colored gemstones, they just go with everything.
