We all know that celebs go overboard, but when it comes to their engagement rings (and their weddings), there is no comparison! Celebrity engagement rings are getting way too big. They all try to outdo each other with bigger carats and flawless diamonds... yes, we're happy that you're engaged, but your rock doesn't prove that you're in love! (*cough cough Kim Kardashian*). So we've compiled a list of our favourites - and those who are so over the top, we couldn't not show them!
Angelina, Beyonce, Mariah and Kim... two things they all have in common: being divas, and owning huge engagement rings. A bit too over-the-top we think! We all know how rich you are, you don't need to prove it with your huge rocks. Angelina's ring is a 16-carat flawless emerald cut diamond designed by Robert Procop, while Mariah's is a 17-carat pink diamond. Jay-Z gave Beyonce an 18-carat emerald cut Lorraine Schwartz flawless diamond set in platimum. Kim wins the war though with her 20.5-carat ring, featuring a 16.5-carat emerald centre, that is worth half the price of her Beverly Hills home. Pity the wedding only lasted 72 days though!
Jen, Reese and Blake wowed us with their beautiful rings! We just adore Reese's rare four-carat Ashoka diamond engagement ring by William Goldberg. And don't you just love Blake's oval cut light pink diamond?
Kate Hudson, Hilary and the other Jennifer might not have the same value in carats, but their rocks are pretty darn huge! Kate's 9-carat emerald cut diamond is in platinum with tapered baguettes.
We both just love the square set or princess cut engagement rings, so Britney, Jessica and Ashlee's rings are right up our alley. Aren't they pretty?
And then we have the two Katie's... Princess Kate Middleton and the other princess of Hollywood, Katie Holmes. The sapphire ring of the late Princess Diana is so gorgeous and fit for a Queen! And even though the TomKat marriage didn't seem to last either (like most Hollywood marriages), we rather like the ring Tom gave her.
Vintage is always the best. Grace Kelly's Cartier engagment ring says so much about the gorgeous princess's style and how she took her Hollywood glamour to Europe. Elizabeth Taylor was known to be a lover of bling, and in this picture above, she is showing off her Krupp diamond given to her by her fifth husband Richard Burton.
”I’m fortunate to have some very important pieces of jewelry. I don’t believe I own any of the pieces. I believe that I am their custodian, here to enjoy them, to give them the best treatment in the world, to watch after their safety, and to love them.” ~Elizabeth Taylor
