It's only the first month of 2022, but we've already had plenty of fun celebrity news to keep us entertained. Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly had a highly publicized engagement (where her unique two-stone ring stole the show), while Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas welcomed their first child. Now, may I bring your attention to another cute moment? Romee Strijd and Laurens van Leeuwen just got engaged in Switzerland, and the photos look like they're straight from a fairytale.

Strijd shared the news on Instagram, and I immediately scrolled to the photo of her ring: a round-cut diamond on a thin gold band. Von Leeuwen custom-designed the ring with Ring Concierge. The company's founder, Nicole Wegman, released a statement with more details on the stunning piece of jewelry: "The couple had a trip planned to Switzerland to celebrate their 12th anniversary so Laurens decided that was the perfect opportunity to surprise Romee with her dream ring," Wegman said. "He selected a Round Brilliant Cut because they are as timeless as it gets and are cut to maximize sparkle. Clients love our Whisper Thin settings because it is the thinnest band possible while being completely safe for daily wear and the diamond almost appears like it’s floating.” Scroll down to see the photos, and shop minimalist rings.

Erin Fitzpatrick
Senior News Editor

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of senior news editor (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
