Supermodel Bar Rafaeli isn’t ready to walk to the altar just yet with superstar Leonardo DiCaprio. She recently laughed off rumors that she was wearing an engagement ring over Valentine’s Day in Berlin. “I’m not thinking about getting married. I’m still young, not yet 25.” Rafaeli was spotted wearing a gold ring that many speculated to be an engagement ring.
But if you were Leo DiCaprio, wouldn’t you get your girl something a bit more opulent for an engagement ring. The simple gold ring Rafaeli was wearing was definitely not the million-dollar spectacle that DiCaprio could afford. And yet fashion experts are saying that understated engagement and wedding rings are most definitely in.
The celebrity couple split for a brief period of six months last year, and yet Rafaeli attests that it only made their relationship stronger. “It was a half year for which I am very grateful. I needed it. I came to understand a lot of things about myself.” The model goes on to say that she hasn’t spent much time with herself outside of her relationships.
Rafaeli says that during the split from DiCaprio she had more time to work on herself. “I grew up. I didn’t know what ‘alone’ was like. Today I know that a relationship can work only if you know that you can be alone and you are not afraid. Today I’m not afraid of being alone.”
