Everyone loves a celebrity engagement. It’s our way to live vicariously through these fairytales that have all the trappings of love and opulence. And whilst we can’t help but fall for the proposals themselves, be they on a private beach, at a luxury hotel or excluded tropical island, we also desperately want to peek the ring.
