Disney Princess-Inspired Engagement Rings Make For A Royal Affair

If you dream of looking like a princess before your wedding day, then send a thank you note to designer Kirstie Kelly because your wish is apparently her command. The “Kirstie Kelly for Disney by Mouwad” collection of rings was just unveiled at Bridal Week In New York.

The jewelry line features six engagement rings and matching wedding bands all inspired by Disney’s famous leading ladies: Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Cinderella (all pictured above), Jasmine, Ariel and Belle (all pictured below). “Subtle references to the personalities of each princess can be seen throughout the collection such as pave and millgrain borders, suggestive of Cinderella’s ethereal grace and charm, or baguettes and clean lines for Ariel, symbolic of an art deco influence and her bold individuality,” notes a Disney release.

Though we love all of our Disney princesses equally, we’re quite smitten with two rings in particular: the Sleeping Beauty and the Cinderella … er, guess that means we love napping and shoes? (View more images of the collection and the wedding bands at Disney Bridal). The princess-cut Sleeping Beauty, which retails for $5,460, is super elegant, while the Cinderella ring, for $4,380, has a refined, classy feel with its large central diamond and two smaller, sparkling baguettes. For all you would-be fiancees out there, the collection will be available spring 2010. (Hint, hint, nudge, nudge boyfriends!)

To complete the fairytale look, is Kirstie’s collection of Disney bridal gowns, which this season now features a frock in honor of the Mouse House’s newest crown jewel: Princess Tiana. The first African-American princess, New Orleans-bred Tiana takes centerstage in the upcoming movie “The Princess and the Frog,” which opens December 11.

According to the company, “The sheath-style gown has an ivory hue with a hand beaded rouched bodice of silk chiffon; a cascading pleated silk skirt and a waterfall train.”

“The Princess Tiana gown is a very special part of the Disney Princess collection,” added Kirstie. “When I look at this gown I see a modern woman that is very comfortable with her own identity. The gown is designed for a bride with a modern sensibility and effortlessly exudes both romance and sultry flair.”

Now that they’ve got dresses and the rings down, do you think Disney will start manufacturing their princes in bulk? A girl can dream!
