Kat Von D’s Engagement Ring Is Every Little Girl’s Dream!

You know when you’re young – or now – you dreamed about finding that perfect guy. On your first date you’d have that movie-like rapid-fire flirty banter that somehow doesn’t feel cheesy at all. Then you’d get together, and you’d only discover deeper and deeper levels of each other that only make you fall deeper in love. You’d do stupid lovey things like go on picnics and take long walks holding hands at night. His parents would adore you because, who wouldn’t? And then one day, in a super romantic way but not cheesy and totally unexpectedly, he’d start giving you that goofy smile you see in movies, and you’d be all like, “Why are you looking at me like that?” And he’d be all, “I love you like I’ve never loved anyone. I can’t imagine living one single day without you.” And he’d get down on one knee, and take the box out of his pocket and open it, and you would see the most beautiful ring that has ever existed. You would see… this:

Come ON. Yeah, I get it, Kat Von D is like so much more edgy than me and I couldn’t possibly understand the symbolism of the skulls. But seriously? Skulls on an engagement ring? As someone who has watched all five seasons of Say Yes To The Dress and the only season of the Atlanta edition, I’m pretty much an expert on all things weddings. And this ring is like the horrible see-through Pnina Tornai dress that everyone always wants. Here, if you want to see it. Sure, it may make you feel sexy now, but are you still going to like it in 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 years looking back at pictures? Or in this case, looking down at your hand? (Then again Kat’s tattoos probably won’t hold up either, so I don’t think she really thinks about that.)

I know she’s a different kind of chick, and I respect that. I actually think the black diamond is a fantastic choice. But four skulls residing on a symbol of your eternal love for this woman? Come on Deadmau5. Then again, when your name is Deadmau5 and you propose to your lady on Twitter, I don’t know what I was expecting.

    omg, what a bunch of gossiping losers. Who cares about her ring? does it really matter? It’s hers. It’s what she wants. Go gossip in some other knitting circle.

    • Reese

      mmm You are reading it, so you must care. and you are on a celebrity gossip site, so you were looking for it. Get over yourself.

    • lizrox

      *eyeroll. I just came to check out the ring. And it was first site I came across that had it. So again. Join the knitting circle.

    What’s wrong with the ring? Just because it’s not the norm doesn’t mean you have to trash her tastes… It only matters what she likes, not you. So quit being a jealous, whiny bitch!

  • LCT

    I actually love it, but not necessarily as an engagement ring.

    And that Pnina monstrosity is seriously hiddy. I’m always shocked that there are THAT many tacky brides with huge budgets.

  • liliana matos

    Love skulls love her ring maybe that’s why y’all single ahahaj at least age has a ring and a skull ring totally badass stop being a jealous bitch looolll

  • stephanie

    this ring is gorgeous! everyone has their own taste and preference and there’s nothing wrong with that. Just because its not the typical girly pink sparkling ring you write an article like this, us gothic women don’t say anything about your mainstream style because we know that everyone is different :)

  • Minniemau5

    Come on, you all didn’t really think she’d make it to the altar did you? At least she can still wear this. The skulls can represent how dead their relationship is.

    just because you think everything should be white and sparkling glitter doesnt mean the rest of us females are into that. I myself saw a pic of this ring and was actually trying to find it for myself. Theres a reason we get tattoos and it isnt so we can regret them when we get old. I hate when peolpe say oh you fucked up gettting a tattoo it’s going to look horrible when you get old. Really fucktard cause im pretty sure a lot more then my tattoos are going to be looking bad. Live in the moment and stop worrying about the future and what people think. Live to be you not someone else.
