Engagement season is starting early this year! News recently broke that actress Samira Wiley, known for her fan-favorite role Poussey Washington on the award-winning hit Orange Is the New Black, got engaged to girlfriend Lauren Morelli, who is a writer on the show. Samira posted a sweet photo to both Twitter and Instagram to show off the gorgeous ring that Lauren proposed with. Befitting the hip style of the actress, the engagement ring is a twist on a classic. The princess-cut diamond is a solitaire, but set in what is called a kite setting to give it a unique edge.
Below, see styles worn by brides from real weddings featured in the pages of Inside Weddings and on InsideWeddings.com that are reminiscent of Samira’s ring. For more dazzling diamonds, browse through our jewelry gallery. In the mean time, we’ll be hoping Samira’s costar and real-life friend, Danielle Brooks, will be a member of the bridal party so we can have a Taystee and Poussey reunion!
