Stunning rings are gracing the engagement fingers of some of the brightest stars; from diamond-encrusted show-stoppers to larger-than-life carat sparklers. Celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Beyoncé have said ‘yes’ to some seriously big rocks. Read on to be in-the-know about some of the blingiest rings in showbiz.
Kanye West proposed to the reality star with a 15-carat diamond engagement ring. The gorgeous ring, created by celebrity jewellery Lorraine Schwartz, boasts a simple design of a flawless cushion-cut diamond. The dazzling diamond is the crème de la crème – a D-stone, type 2A.
A huge 18-carat ring sits beautifully on Beyoncé’s engagement finger. The immaculate emerald-cut diamond is also designed by Lorraine Schwartz and is valued at a jaw-dropping $5 million!
Seven years after meeting on the set of Mr & Mrs Smith, Brad Pitt proposed to the actress with a $500,000 diamond ring. The emerald-cut multi-stone stunner, custom-designed by Robert Procop, is a 16-carat sparkler that took almost a whole year to design!
Mrs Beckham’s engagement ring seems to change every few years, with a number of different impressive rocks debuting on her engagement finger. However, her original ring was a gold band that flaunted a simple yet elegant 3-carat marquise-cut diamond designed exclusively by Asprey & Garrard. Her latest engagement ring is a 19-carat emerald-cut knockout.
The late Elizabeth Taylor got married eight times and with these marriages came hefty engagement rings. Film producer Michael Todd proposed in 1956 with a whopping 30-carat diamond ring which Elizabeth referred to as “my ice-skating rink”. The engagement ring has gone down in celebrity history as one of the most dazzling diamond rings ever.
Prince William proposed to Kate with the very engagement ring that belonged to his late mother, Princess Diana. The 18-carat sapphire and diamond ring cost £28,000 when Prince Charles purchased it back in 1981, and is now reportedly worth £85,000, although technically, it is priceless!
