Rock Star Style

Steven Tyler has proposed to his long time girlfriend Erin Brady.  The news wasn’t announced right away .. instead the rumors started to fly when Brady was photographed with an engagement ring.  Dead giveaway!

There was just a bit of contovery surrounding the engagement.  These pictures, from Christmas vacation in Hawaii shown on TMZ.com, came before the family apparently knew.  Tyler has four children, actress Liv, Mia, Chelsea and Taj.  They are reportedly not so happy that their 63-year-old dad is getting married again .. and that they found out after he popped the question.

At 38, Erin Brady is much younger than Tyler.  She is a former Live Nation tour accountant.  They’ve been dating for 5 years, since 2006.

This would be Tyler’s third marriage.  In 1978 he married a model and in 1998 a clothing designer.

Big Rock from the Rock Star

US Weekly interviewed Loree Rodkin, a friend of Tyler who is also a jeweler.  She said, “Having made Steven’s jewelry for so many of the past year it was an honor to be part of his future .. with all my love to Steven and Erin.”

According to US Weekly, it’s a 5 carat engagement ring featuring a round brilliant cut diamond, the most popular of all diamond shapes we might add.  It is set in platinum and the band is studded with diamonds, micro pave set diamonds.

Classic & Elegant

The engagement ring that Erin Brady is wearing shows the Aeorsmith singer has great tastes.  It’s a truly classic ring.  The round stone is, as we have mentioned, the most popular diamond shape for engagement rings.  The side diamonds, or side stones, have also become a very common way to jazz up a solitaire diamond ring.  The side diamonds are usually also round brilliants and usually prong set.  Micro prong refers to very small prongs.  Gold is more commonly used for engagement rings, but platinum is a wonderful choice as well.  It’s a bit more expensive and will scratch more easily.  However it will retain its color better.

The one thing that is different from the rings you or your friends may be wearing, is the size.  At 5 carats, this engagement ring likely cost a pretty penny.  Most celebrity engagement rings share that characteristic, they are large and expensive.

Tyler & Brady aren’t the only couple that got engaged over the holidays.  Some of the other celebs include: Chrissy Teigen’s Engagement Ring (John Legend) ..  Camila Alves Engagement Ring (Matthew McConaughey) .. Yvette Prieto’s Engagement Ring (Michael Jordan) ..  Savannah Brinson’s Engagement Ring (LeBron James) .. Courtney Mazza’s Engagement Ring (Mario Lopez).
