It’s official: Thanks to Elizabeth Olsen, we’re seeing green! The 30-year-old actress was spotted wearing a stunning emerald engagement ring while grocery shopping this past weekend in Los Angeles, confirming her previously speculated about engagement to longtime boyfriend, musician Robbie Arnett.
Reminiscent of the green Infinity Stone set in the thumb of Avengers’ villain Thanos’s all-powerful gilded gauntlet, Olsen’s new emerald is probably even more precious to the actress best known for portraying Marvel's Scarlet Witch.
As seen in close-ups of Olsen’s new bling, the square-cut emerald is surrounded by an impressive halo of diamond baguettes and set on a thin yellow-gold band. "Elizabeth’s ring has a royal feel to it," explains James Schultz, founder, and chief customer officer of engagement ring e-tailer JamesAllen.com, noting that the style is similar to Kate Middleton’s iconic ring with its halo setting and unconventional gemstone center. "The emerald in Olsen's ring is around four carats, making the overall retail value somewhere between $200,000 and 250,000," he estimates.
This colorful gemstone and sparkly setting makes Olsen and Arnett the latest celebrity couple to eschew the traditional diamond solitaire, following the likes of Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom (a pink ruby surrounded by diamonds,) Avengers’ co-star Scarlett Johanssen and Colin Jost, (a pear-shaped brown diamond), and big sister, Mary-Kate Olsen, who wears a vintage Cartier engagement ring with diamonds and blue sapphires from husband Olivier Sarközy.
