Irina Shayk and Kate Middleton Might Be Engagement Ring Twins
Life has gotten a whole lot more exciting for Victoria’s Secret model Irina Shayk as of late! Not only is the 30-year-old model heating up the LOVE Advent calendar with a Ghost-themed video and expecting a baby with none other than actor Bradley Cooper, but she very well may be engaged!
While enjoying a day of pampering, which reportedly included waxing, nails and the works, folks couldn’t help but notice one giant new addition to THAT finger in the form of an emerald surrounded by plenty of diamonds.

Though nothing has been officially confirmed, it was more than enough to have tongues wagging.
It wasn’t just the “are they or aren’t they?” that had people talking, however — it was the ring’s similarity to another famous piece of jewelry worn by none other than Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge herself.
Kate recently made headlines herself by wearing her late mother-in-law’s tiara, but it’s her own 18-carat sapphire stunner with 14 diamonds (also passed down from Princess Diana) that has Cosmopolitan pointing out a major sense of déjà vu.
While Irina’s rocking an emerald instead of a sapphire, giving a new hue to her shiner, the similarities are undeniable — the rings are even about the same size.
No word yet on whether or not Bradley went to Garrad Jewelers (who allowed Princess Diana to hand-select her piece back in 1981), but given the timing, we’re leaning toward yes.
Which ring do you like better, Irina’s or Kate’s? Sound off over @BritandCo!
