Here’s Why Mandy Moore Didn’t Want a Big Engagement Ring
As the actress, who debuted her dainty Irene Neuwirth rock on the red carpet this past September, explained to InStyle, she simply is not a huge jewelry gal. “I’ve never been someone who wears a lot of jewelry,” Moore said. “It’s fun to get dressed up and wear gorgeous pieces for work, but in my real life, I usually just put on a pair of studs.”
It was for that reason that the 47 Meters Down star told fiancé Taylor Goldsmith that she didn’t want a huge rock, with the two planning to pick out some simple bands together.
Instead, Goldsmith surprised her with a totally understated gem that was pure Mandy. “[He] picked out every detail he thought I’d like, from the round, faceted stone to the rose gold band. It is so me,” she dished. I especially love that the diamond is flat. You can see my skin through it, which makes it even more understated.”
The musician’s instincts paid off: As Moore, 33, gushed, “Even though I thought I didn’t want an engagement ring, as soon as I saw this one, I couldn’t imagine the moment without it.”
