Engagement Ring

Dropping the bomb of your engagement news to your followers on Instagram? You’re probably going to just post a picture of your engagement ring. Right? And let them gaze at it with their eyes wide open.

We all struggle for that perfect picture or selfie that is Insta-post worthy. There is a whole lot of pictures we take before we finally get to that one picture which is perfect. Right angle, right light, and just the right amount of smile that doesn’t looks like you know, a ‘fake candid’. Instagram has become the next generation journal/diary that we share with our followers and admirers. Us girls like to be popular, especially on occasions of displaying PDA with boyfriend, partying with the besties or being ‘hitched’. Flaunting the big rock of engagement ring is the most admired picture. Before you get the perfect shot, you gotta keep in mind so many things. So that its not very flashy, show-off and worst of all a fake candid. Keeping it real is what leads to thousands of likes (or 100 if you have 100 followers).

Take a look at these iconic women women, who nailed the perfect Insta-post of their engagement ring photo:

Priyanka Chopra

Its been more than 2 months now, and we are still under the spell of her ginormous wedding saga. Priyanka Chopra took our hearts away with her Insta-post when she broke the news of being ‘officially engaged’ with Nick Jonas. The intimate hug of these two love birds submerged the Instagram. Its natural, intimate and you can see the rock quite alright there.

Meghan Markle

The Royalty Meghan Markle and Prince Harry did the full fledged photoshoot at the Kensington Palace’s Sunken Garden. They posted the perfect Insta-post of their engagement and of course, the ring. Good sunlight, grand background, contrasting outfit and a complimenting gesture by both.

Kim Kardashian

Okay, who doesn’t know Kim Kardashian? If its you, you must be living under a rock, my friend! She is the queen of Instagram. No one does it like her. She took a black and white picture of her engagement ring with the background of the proposal “PLEASE MARRY ME!!!” written on a jumbotron by Kanye West.

No one does it like her and no one Can do it like her. Towel wrapped hair, bathroom selfie, modelling her Idol, Elizabeth Taylor as a tribute to her. Can’t stop looking at that rock.

Anushka Sharma

Anushka Sharma’s wedding was an ‘epitome’ for Indian weddings and right after their remarkable wedding, there it was, the perfect picture. It was a sunshinig one, lying upside down wrapping her arm (that is showing off her engagement ring) around hubb, Virat Kohli. Mornings in bed, no make up, no posing, just a casual photo that turns out to be an adorb.

Sophie Turner

Gained popularity through American series Game of Thrones and Priyanka Chopra’s sister-in-law (to-be), Sophie Turner did it right. No faces, just Joe Jonas’ and her hands with that beautiful rock on her fingers. There is no sunlight or a pose too made up, just two lovers’ hands holding onto each others’.

Disha Patani

Very recently doing rounds on Instagram, actors Disha Patanai and Tiger Shroff posted a picture of them kissing their rings. They sure came up with a new one.

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus a.k.a. Hannah Montana for all the 90’s people out there, you know who she is. She had quite some fun with her Insta-post of the engagement ring that Liam Hemsworth proposed with. Grumpy face, coupled with an artificial giant red ring. Well, she had a serious ‘show-off-the-ring’ post too. Too simple for Miley, though we love it anyhow.

Hailey Bieber

Hailey Bieber, is a successful model who changed her surname from ‘Baldwin’ to ‘Bieber’ as soon as the relationship with singer, Justin Bieber turned ‘official’. Her Insta-post with the engagement ring is too cute too handle. See for yourself.

Sagarika Ghatge

This beauty Sagarika Ghatge, Chak De India actress, is glowing like the diamond on her finger. This is a casual selfie with now husband Zaheer Khan, an Indian cricket team player. It looks like she is actually showing off her engagement ring, but in fact, she is holding a glass of wine trying to remove strand of hair coming on her face. This is how a ‘natural picture’ becomes the best picture of all.

Take your inspiration from these iconic women to nail that ‘Engagement Ring Insta-post’ that you were trying so hard to get right. Maybe its not that hard after all.
