By Katie Gray

Celebrity love is in the air, and diamonds are a girl’s best friend! Former Girl Next Door, Bridget Marquardt, is engaged! Nick Carpenter gave her a diamond spider celebrity engagement ring, which is fitting because Halloween is her favorite holiday and time of the year. This celebrity couple have been dating for a long time and are ready to tie the knot. According to, Marquardt and Carpenter met at the Playboy Mansion. Marquardt said, “I’ve heard that people want to marry their best friends. I think that should be partially true. You want someone you can sit with in sweats, plus go out with. You want them to have a lot of best friend qualities, but you want to make sure that you have the spice and passion that you wouldn’t have with your best friend. You want the relationship to be one step beyond that.”

This celebrity couple will soon be walking down the aisle. What are some ways to choose your partner’s engagement ring?

Cupid’s Advice:

Although the love between you and your significant other is the most important part, the ring does matter. When choosing your partner’s engagement ring, it’s important to keep in mind their taste, interests and personality. Cupid has some relationship advice:

1.Taste: You need to select an engagement ring for your partner while taking into account their tastes and interests. If they are into opulence, then make sure to wow them with the size and clarity of the gem stone. If they are more conservative and classic, choose a classic cut and setting.

2. Personality: Personality plays a huge role! If you are going to spend the rest of your life with someone, you clearly know them very well as a person. Perhaps they have a special interest where you can create a ring around that aspect, similar to how Bridget’s ring is a spider because she’s the Queen of Halloween. If they are into horses you could have a horseshoe shape in the pattern or if they love pearls than add a pearl into the ring and have diamonds circling around it.

3. Quality over quantity: The most important thing to remember is that an engagement ring is an investment. It’s something your partner will be wearing everyday and it should be meaningful and special. This is something you will spend a lot of time and money on, but it’s worth it. The quality of the diamonds are more important than the amount of them. If you can only afford so much, make sure the main stone is flawless instead of buying lesser quality stones to have a bunch of diamonds everywhere. One beautiful diamond is more pretty than a bunch of stones that are not of good quality. Besides; they will love you regardless!
