Some of the most stunning celebrity engagement rings of all time
Sure, we all know it’s not about the rock, we’d be as happy with a ring pop as we would with the Heart of the Ocean as long as it was given to us by the right person, but that doesn’t mean we don’t like looking at wildly extravagant things that we neither want nor need! Yes there’s a bit of magpie in all of us, so if you have a craving to look at something sparkly on top of a famous finger, then check out our 5 favourite celebrity engagement rings of all time.
1. Kim Kardashian
We have to start somewhere so we might as well start with the queen of excess herself: Mrs Kim Kardashian West. When Kanye popped the question he had much more up his sleeve than words, he had a 15 carat $8 million whopper of a ring to seal the deal.
2. Jessica Biel
The stunning Mrs Timberlake held out as long as she could when it came to showing the world her ring, but we can’t for the life of us figure out why. With its rounded square diamond, scrolling rope sides and a good amount of smaller stones tucked in there, it’s a showstopper in our book.
5. Beyoncé Knowles
From a future queen to the reigning monarch of glam. Queen Bey was destined to be the recipient of a wowing rock and Jay Z didn’t disappoint when he got down on one knee back in 2008. Her incredible 18 carat, emerald cut diamond solitaire from Lorraine Schwartz cost an estimated $5 million, and for Beyoncé’s hand in marriage it was worth every penny.
