Pippa Middleton, the younger sister of Princess Kate, recently announced her engagement to James Matthews, who works in finance. Pippa first grabbed the attention of the world as a bridesmaid in the royal wedding, looking absolutely stunning in a form-fitting ivory gown to complement her sister’s long-sleeved lace number. The couple first dated back in 2012, but subsequently split and were apart for several years. They rekindled their romance late last year and seem to be as happy as ever. According to a joint statement, they plan to marry in 2017. One thing the pair have in common is a famous sibling – James’ brother, Spencer Matthews, is a British reality star, appearing on 10 seasons of Made in Chelsea.

James proposed to Pippa with a unique ring that combines vintage Art Deco style with a modern look. The center stone is an Asscher-cut diamond, an uncommon choice, as step-cut gems require nearly flawless clarity. Instead of the popular halos of this decade, the ring features a segmented octagonal border. Both the halo and center stone are in a bezel setting, which lends itself to modernity.

If Pippa’s bling has caught your eye, we’ve gathered similar styles below from real weddings. Their influences span from vintage, geometric shapes, step-cuts, and halos – so no matter what part of Pippa’s ring you love, you’re sure to find further inspiration with these pieces.
