George Clooney reportedly picked Amal Alamuddin's ring because it reflects "purity".

The British lawyer has snapped up one of Hollywood's most eligible bachelors after George Clooney proposed to her last month. Amal is now wearing a seven-carat rock, estimated to be worth around £450,000, on her finger.

“The platinum engagement ring he proposed to Amal Alamuddin with is totally symbolic of purity,” jewellery expert Michael O’Connor told RadarOnline.

“Purity of design, purity of diamond and purity of setting. The design is purely classic with ethically-mined diamonds set with a larger centre flanked by two tapered baguette diamonds.

“Pure white platinum holds the diamonds securely — and platinum is primarily used at 95 per cent purity which makes if one of the most pure jewellery metals."

George, 53, was married to Talia Balsam between 1989 and 1993 and has dated a string of women including Lisa Snowden and Stacy Keibler since the divorce.

Many of his co-stars joked about his apparent inability to settle down but it seems the handsome actor has chosen a particularly special ring for his lucky lady. Previous reports have even suggested that George helped to design the band.

“The emerald cut diamond, as well as the tapered baguette side diamonds, are cut with fewer facets than most other cuts and shapes, which sparkles with more pure white light than other cuts," Michael continued.

George and Amal celebrated their engagement with famous friends at a party in Malibu on Sunday.
