They say that a man is supposed to spend one month’s salary on his bride-to-be at the jewelry store. But what does that look like when you’re a mega wealthy celebrity and you’re proposing to actresses on the big screen or supermodels known around the world? Oh, the pressure!

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and these ladies will have the quite the companion in the coming years! Let’s take a peek at some of the most outrageous engagement rings that made your favorite celebrities say, “I do!” Be honest, which one is your favorite?


Kim Kardashian

Estimated Price: $4.5 million

Oh, Kim Kardashian. After a quick marriage to a basketball star with a giant diamond, it was time to get serious and find her one and only for good. And that’s when Kanye entered the picture! But how did he capture the heart of the girl who has everything? Why, with a 15 carat rock of course.

Pinterest

Not quite an oval and not quite a square, this design is sure to be a stylish and timeless heirloom piece. Or is it? A well-publicized robbery in Paris recently left Kim shaken, and unfortunately this was one of the items stolen during the crime! What a shame, honestly. We hope Kim catches the crooks ASAP!

Sofia Vergara

Estimated Price: $750,000

Modern Family’s favorite star has been pretty busy. A recent marriage to Joe Manganiello in 2015 resulted in this stunning ring! A halo setting with a pave diamond band is modern yet classic, and we think it goes with any outfit in platinum. Don’t you agree?

Emerald Green Weddings

But who is this tall, dark, and handsome man that captured her heart? Joe Manganiello actually played Flash Thompson in Spider-Man, in case you missed it! Very cool, Joe. The blockbuster actor admitted that Sofia was his celebrity crush before they met, and it looks like this is a case where dreams do come true! Maybe for that reason, he felt he needed to show his love with 7 carats of pure, glittering aged carbon.

Angelina Jolie

Estimated Price: $500,000

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were such a hot couple for so long that they received a nickname: Brangelina! Although their marriage has since ended, the ring that started it all is still right here on the list. This piece is pretty unique, made of all diamond baguette cuts stones. That includes the center stone, as well as the entire band!

Pinterest

This ring includes a total of 16 carats, and it is as beautiful and unusual as Angelina herself. A unique style for Hollywood, that’s for sure. So what has happened to this ring after the divorce? Has she stored it away for safekeeping? Questions, questions.

Paris Hilton

Estimated Price: $2 million

Paris Hilton might be America’s favorite heirless of all time. After she gained her initial fame from a reality TV show in the 2000’s, Paris tried a number of business ventures in the cosmetics and fashion industry. But it seems like she has been laying low lately. What has she been up to?

Pinterest

Well, an engagement sounds pretty exciting! Paris received this shocking 20 carat diamond ring from actor Chris Zylka in 2018. The style is pear shaped and set in platinum, and it seems to be a supersized version of the classic rings we all know. Sadly, the pair did not go through with the marriage. But Paris plans to keep the gift! What would you do?

Kate Middleton

Estimated Price: $500,000

Everyone remembers the famous engagement of Kate Middleton and Prince William. There was a lot of press about the ring used for this couple, because it was actually owned by the late Princess Diana! It is pretty different than most engagement rings these days, with a giant dark blue sapphire set in the middle of a ring of diamonds. Truly priceless and one-of-a-kind!

Pinterest

The trend to use diamond engagement rings isn’t that old, actually. In previous centuries, many different stones were used instead! Today, sapphires come in many different shades and have seen a surge of popularity with independent designers on Etsy. They’re usually far less expensive than this historical statement piece, and it’s worth taking a look!

Meghan Markle

Estimated Price: $350,000

And of course, the other prince found his bride as well. We couldn’t forget Meghan Markle, an American living a literal fairy tale right now. The world was surprised to find out that Harry had been seeing a Hollywood actress, since they kept their relationship pretty private during the dating process. So what kind of ring does a modern prince give his princess these days?

YouTube

Meghan was presented with a 4.5 carat diamond ring set in gold. One large diamond in the middle has two smaller friends on the sides, and it is a classic piece that will probably always be in style. Very nice, Harry!

Beyoncé Knowles

Estimated Price: $5 million

The current queen of pop and hip hop has been married to the equally famous Jay-Z for 10 years now. Today, their combined wealth is more than $1 billion – billion with a B – and they are just getting started! But what kind of ring could Jay Z afford a decade ago to get the big yes?

Pinterest

Well, it turns out quite a lot! This sparking rock creation was designed by Lorraine Schwartz, and it almost looks like play jewelry! But of course, it is not. It’s the real deal, and it’s a shocking 18 carats of emerald cut diamond. Jay-Z, she had to say yes!

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Estimated Price: $350,000

Supermodels are hard to come by these days. Rosie’s got a face that could launch a thousand ships, and clearly fiancé Jason Statham was keenly aware of this fact. So he did he had to do, which was propose with this 5 carat sparkling diamond. A good bet!

TLC

They recently purchased a home together, and just had their first child. In terms of normal family life, Rosie says that photographers swarm them at grocery stores, so they have compromised and now use a delivery service. Yikes! At least she’s got that ring to comfort her during the darker times. Sparkle, sparkle.

Blake Lively

Estimated Price: $2.5 million

Now this was the ring heard round the world! Blake Lively was everyone’s favorite blond from Gossip Girl, and clearly Ryan Reynolds took notice. To seal the deal, he made sure to present her with a giant 12 carat diamond with impeccable design to her tastes. Wow, we say!

Ritani

This oval cut double band design was so popular that many independent jewelry designers started mimicking it, even calling their version “The Blake” in some cases. Today, you can find a copy or two on Etsy with a variety of stones. A real diamond of this size is unaffordable for most shoppers, of course. But the design itself is clean, sparking, and perfect. That’s our review!

Melania Trump

Estimated Price: $2 million

Oh, Melania! We can’t imagine what your life has been like in the golden Trump Tower and now the White House! But we can imagine what your jewelry box looks like, and it’s pretty enviable!

Yahoo Canada Style

Perhaps this was an amazing prize at the end of her quest to fight off all the other supermodels in NYC, and it certainly looks like a happy ending! Originally from a small town in Slovenia, Melania’s life as a supermodel in European capitals and New York really was the stuff of dreams. This 15 carat ring may be large, but it is equally stylish! What do you think?

Jennifer Lopez

Estimated Price: $4.5 million

J-Lo has had many public relationships over the years, from Puff Daddy to Mark Anthony. A few short terms boyfriends in the news over the past few years didn’t really last, but it appears Jennifer has finally found real love! After two years of steady dating, baseball player Alex Rodriguez proposed in the paradise of the Bahamas. Gorgeous setting, but what kind of ring did he surprise her with?

Instagram

This giant emerald cut stone is estimated to be up to 5 glittering carats, and might the one of the most impressive on our list. What do you think? Diamonds are forever, and hopefully this marriage will be too! Best of luck, Jennifer and Alex.

Kate Upton

Estimated Price: $1.6 million

Kate Upton is actually the niece of a republican congressman, the daughter of a Texas state tennis champion, and now the wife of a Detroit Tigers Star! She’s got a lot of interesting and successful people around her, and she is no exception herself! Named rookie of the year by Sports Illustrated, Kate has had a very successful modeling career so far. So what kind of ring does a girl like this need on engagement day?

Pinterest

It turns out she and her fiancé Justin created the design together, so it doesn’t seem like it was the surprise in a box many of us picture. This gigantic 8 carat center stone is set on a  diamond studded platinum band, and they feel it is one-of-a-kind. Not bad, Kate!

Alison Brie

Estimated Price: $100,000

Everyone loves Alison Brie, and everyone loves Dave Franco. And lucky for us, they got married! The perfect silly and talented couple lives a life together now, and the ring used to unite them is quite unique by Hollywood standards. Let’s find out more!

Hia Mag

This 3 carat diamond ring is actually rose cut, a style that in vogue again among independent designers looking to provide something a little bit different for their customers. And it’s also rose gold! This combination of gold and copper used to be called “Russian gold” during the last century, but it has received a new marketing name and new life in our style culture. Her ring is also surrounded by two rings of diamonds, and there are probably few like it out there at the moment. Very unique and trendy ring, Alison!

Alexis Bledel

Estimated Price: $80,000

Alexis Bledel first appeared on our TV’s during Gilmore Girls, and she was simply striking. She had actually been doing a little bit of modeling before she struck it big in Hollywood, and she is no stranger to the fashion world. So what kind of ring does a girl like Alexis expect during the big question?

Bremer Jewelry

Vincent Kartheiser is the lucky man, and they met on the set of Mad Men, a show that actually managed to revive a real interest in vintage style from the last midcentury all on its own. It was quite the phenomenon! Alexis received a vintage inspired engagement ring in the shape of an octagon, and it is such a stunner! The couple was married in 2014. Do you think she still wears this style piece everyday? We know we would!

Catherine Zeta-Jones

Estimated Price: $1 million

We all remember Catherine Zeta-Jones from her roles in The Mask Of Zorro and Chicago, but her marriage to Michael Douglas is something even more special. True love knows no age, at least in their case. A whole 25 years separates the couple, now 74 and 49.

Pinterest

So how did fiancé Michael Douglas initially woo the younger actress all those years ago? Besides charm, wisdom, and wit? He presented her with this whopping 10 carat diamond ring, and it is a dazzler! While some studies show that a more expensive ring is actually correlated with divorce, that is certainly not the case with these two long term lovebirds.

Cardi B

Estimated Price: $500,000

Oh, Cardi B! We’ve heard so much about your man Offset, but it seemed like things were over for awhile. But then, they were back on! Cardi recently had her first child with the rapper, and they have become engaged. The question is, what kind of ring does Cardi B get really excited about?

Pinterest

Offset presented her with a crazy 8 carat pear shaped ring, and it actually has some pinkish tiny stones surrounding the center rock. This ring is so big and sparkly that it doesn’t seem real! But of course, it is actually a giant shimmering diamond and Cardi seems to love wearing it. Who wouldn’t?

Katy Perry

Estimated Price: $5 million

After that tragic split with husband Russel Brand, many wondered what kind of partner Katy might choose next. Another comedian? As it turns out, she went for everyone’s favorite elf warrior. Orlando Bloom! So what did he pick out for the out-of-the-box styled pop star to show his commitment?

Hindustan Times

Actually, a pretty unique design to match her personna! This giant ruby ring is shaped like a flower, and eight impressive diamonds serve as the petals on this design. The metal is yellow gold, and her bejeweled finger looks great! Way to be creative, Orlando. Katy seems like the kind of woman who could really appreciate that!

Kirsten Dunst

Estimated Price: $80,000

Kirsten Dunst might have been one of the top sweethearts in the late 90’s and 2000’s, and she continues to dazzle us with indie films like Marie Antoinette and blockbusters like Spiderman. But what has she been doing very, very recently?

Her World

Why, falling love of course! Kirsten met her fiancé Jesse Plemons on the set of Fargo, a great new show since 2015. While she has long been a film actress, it looks like this switch to TV was a life changer in more than one way! This oval diamond ring is estimated to be around 3 carats, and it’s a great classic that is sure to complement all the varied looks with Kirsten’s famous trendy style.

Anna Kournikova

Estimated Price: $2.5 million

Alright, Anna Kournikova! Though she was a big star during her tennis days in the 2000’s we haven’t heard from her for awhile! Maybe that’s because she has been busy with Enrique Iglesias since 2001, and we understand how that could be distracting at times.

Pinterest

How did fiancé Enrique Iglesias woo Anna in the end? Was it through a romantic song in Spanish? Well, we don’t know if singing was part of the proposal. But we certainly know that this outrageous 11 carat canary diamond ring was used! It literally cost millions, and Anna could be sure that Enrique’s corazón was all hers! They’re still together today, almost 20 years later with twins and a mansion planned for a private island. Very impressive, indeed.

Margot Robbie

Estimated Price: $30,000

Margot Robbie came to our attention as an authentic character from thick Brooklyn accent, and she sure fooled us! The actress is really from Australia, and it seems she has a real talent with accents. You may have also noticed her villain skills in Suicide Squad, and her portrayal of the infamous Tonya Harding recently. Margot seems pretty busy! What could she possibly have time for outside of work?

Pinterest

Well it seems she had time to fall in love with assistant director Tom Ackerley, a Brit! They recently got married in a private ceremony in the Australian state of New South Wales, but Tom gave a little gift beforehand. This 1.5 carat ring is pear shaped and set in gold, and her social media announcement was just too funny! Congratulations, Margot.

Sarah Jessica Parker

Estimated Price: $400,000-600,000

Sarah Jessica Parker certainly got things figured out a bit better than her famous character, Carrie. Everyone’s favorite Sex and the City star has been married for more than 20 years to her sweetheart Matthew Broderick. Known worldwide for her style trendsetting, we bet you’re wondering what kind of engagement ring this fashionista call her own. Let’s take a look!

Brides Blush

Sarah’s ring has an estimated 7-8 carats of pure diamond, set in yellow gold. The stone is cushion cut, and features a double band. This sparkler is timeless, and we can see why she still wears it to this day!

Amal Clooney

Estimated Price: $750,000

Everyone wondered for decades when George Clooney was finally going to settle down. The famed bachelor had many public relationships, but it seems that true love was waiting for him with famed human rights lawyer Amal! What kind of ring did he choose when he finally popped the question?

Pinterest

This ring features more than 7 carats of glittering diamond, shaped to precision with an emerald cut. It appears to be set in either white gold or platinum, and extra baguette diamonds appear on each side of the giant center stone. George, you did well with this one!

Avril Lavigne

Estimated Price: $350,000

Avril, where have you been? We all rocked to her 2000’s chart hits, but it seems she took a break after a long period of pop magic. Clearly, Avril has been pretty busy with her personal life in recent years with her marriage to Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger.  

Pinterest

Chad originally proposed with a 14 carat pear shaped diamond, and he later surprised her with an upgrade of six carats. She received a 20 carat emerald cut diamond later on, and it seemed she was building quite the collection. Unfortunately, they separated recently. While the divorce is not yet final, we do wonder what will happen to this couple that is worth more than $100 million combined!

Elisha Cuthbert

Estimated Price: Unknown

Elisha Cuthbert is probably best known for her role in the movie The Girl Next Door in the 2000’s, but she has been working hard to make a name for herself on network television in recent years. In her free time, it looks like she found love with a fellow Canadian. Did you know your favorite girl next door wasn’t American? We learn something new everyday, too.

Pinterest

Elisha married hockey player Dion Phaneuf, star captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs. Very nice, Elisha! The ring is pretty impressive, as you can see. This giant pear shaped stone set in platinum looks simply exquisite. More recent good news: The couple has given birth to a baby named Zaphire!

Halle Berry

Estimated Price: $200,000

Halle Berry has been dazzling audiences since the 90’s with her fun and serious performances alike. Whether she was your favorite Bond girl or made you cry with her Oscar winning Monster’s Ball performance, everyone seems to be a fan. Halle has been winning beyond the screen lately, as well. Did you know she married French actor Oscar Martinez?

Pinterest

Her engagement ring is pretty unique, we must say. A handcrafted yellow gold band holds a very vibrant emerald with two side diamonds. And this isn’t just any emerald, either. Not only is it four carats, but it has Phoenician codes inscribed on it that represent a romantic story between them. Unfortunately, Halle recently lost this ring at a restaurant! We mourn the loss, indeed.

Katherine Heigl

Estimated Price: $65,000

Katherine Heigl had a pretty good run as a main character on Grey’s Anatomy, and her string of hits in the romantic comedy world cemented her celebrity status for most of us. In her personal life, it looks like she has struck gold too!

Brides Blush

Katherine married singer Josh Kelley, and her ring is a sparkly and classic pear shaped diamond with platinum taken from her mother’s ring. Very creative! Her home life seems to have gotten even more interesting since they made it official. The couple adopted 2 daughters, and Katherine gave birth to a biological son in 2016!

Jessica Alba

Estimated Price: $100,000

Jessica Alba began her television career at age 13, but she became very famous after her Golden Globe nominated performance in Dark Angel. Many movies later, she is definitely a household name! So what has been going on behind the scenes recently for Jessica?

Pinterest

An engagement to Cash Warren, that’s what! But who is this mysterious man, you may ask. The answer is that he is actually the son of Fantastic Four actor Michael Warren. They met on set while she was filming in 2004, and they have been married for many years now. The engagement ring was an impressive 5 carat diamond with many smaller diamonds lining the band. Very nice!

Penelope Cruz

Estimated Price: $30,000

You may love Penelope from her roles in Vanilla Sky or the recent indie flick Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Who doesn’t? And it turns out that actor Javier Bardem loved her too! This three carat ring is an unusual engage,mtn piece in today’s market, because it forgoes the large center diamond that so many people choose. Penelope has a gorgeous dark blue sapphire instead, but it seems to suit her well.

Popular Everything

The pair originally met on a movie set, which surprises none of us. They starred in multiple films together, and got married in 2010 in the Bahamas. Today, they are loving parents together! And to think that it all started with this ring. Maybe sapphires are a girl’s best friend, too?

Olivia Wilde

Estimated Price: Unknown

Olivia Wilde has stunning eyes, and her husband Jason Sudeikis had that feature in mind when choosing his proposal ring. He said that green inspired him, and it’s a gorgeous diamond Art Deco creation. We think Olivia was already ecstatic to be marrying the famous funnyman, but this ring was undoubtedly exciting too!

Popular Everything

The center diamond is a cool two carats set in yellow gold, and we just love the emerald design! The couple seems pretty blissful these days, and their marriage has been expanded to a full on family. Jason and Olivia have a young son and daughter, and they have two very funny parents leading the way. Congratulations, Sudeikis family!

Natalie Portman

Estimated Price: $35,000

Natalie Portman is just irreplaceable. Her haunting performance in Black Swan probably convinced you, if you didn’t think so before. She actually married her ballet instructor from the film, which is quite a charming story. And to top it off, he’s French! Ooh la la.

Popular Everything

Benjamin Millepied is the special man, and he proposed a very eco-conscious ring to suit Natalie’s tastes. This gorgeous classic design is actually made from conflict-free diamonds as well as recycled platinum, which was an important part of the decision. Maybe this will be a growing trend for future consumers? Natalie is setting an example, but we will wait and see if this becomes a big part of the jewelry market in years to come.

Kylie Minogue

Estimated Price: Unknown

Kylie Minogue has had quite the music career spanning more than two decades, which is quite and achievement in an industry with constantly changing trends. She is an innovator and a survivor, and we still love her hits from 20 years ago. Don’t you?

Popular Everything

In 2016, Kylie became engaged to a younger man. 28 year old actor Joshua Sasse. This gorgeous ring was truly fitting for the Australian queen of pop, we must admit. A large center stone rests in a halo of tiny diamonds, beautifully placed on a yellow gold band. Sadly, the engagement ended in 2017. Maybe it wasn’t meant to be, but this ring sure was!

Salma Hayek

Estimated Price: $200,000

Salma Hayek is one of the real superstars out there today as a triple threat acting, producing, and directing from time to time. You must be wondering what kind of partner this talented woman finally settles down with! Apparently, the answer is a French billionaire and CEO named François-Henri Pinault. And the obvious next question is, what kind of ring does a French billionaire give his lovely lady?

Popular Everything

This five carat diamond is actually oval cut, and features three sparkling stones on platinum. Not bad, Francois! The couple met in 2007, and the deal was sealed two years later. How, you ask? In Paris and on Valentine’s Day, which is about as dreamy as it gets. A beautiful story, indeed.

Emily Ratajkowski

Estimated Price: $90,000

Model and actress, actress and model — We’re not quite sure what to call Emily Ratajkowski, but she is definitely defining her career right now. And her love life! Emily got engaged at only 26, which is slightly early these days in our career focused culture. Who was the lucky man that took her away from the singles scene once and for all? It looks like Emily wed a 31-year-old filmmaker named Sebastian Bear-McClard.

Popular Everything

A romantic touch to this gorgeous five carat ring is that fact that they designed it together from Chinatown gold they melted down. They brought it to a man with a private studio to shape the ring with a blowtorch, and it looks like he did an amazing job! One of these things is not like the other — sorry, we mean rings!

Serena Williams

Estimated Price: $2 million dollars

Serena Wiliams has been hyper focused on her goals to become a world tennis champion since she was a young girl, and her hard work has certainly paid off! Becoming number one on earth is no easy task, and it certainly doesn’t leave a lot of time for romance. But it looks like Serena finally has time for her personal life, and this next phase will be pretty exciting. Why? This superstar finally found her match, and it is official!

Estimated Price: $200,000

America’s sweetheart is definitely Reese Witherspoon, and we would like to know who her sweetheart turned out to be! Little has been publicized about her love life since her divorce from Ryan Philippe quite awhile ago, but Reese has found her upgrade. And that includes an incredible ring!

Popular Everything

Movie agent Jim Toth is the lucky man, and he proposed to Reese with this four carat Ashoka cut diamond ring. While the sheer size of the diamond is already very impressive, the cut is quite rare as well. The couple is now married with a sun, and they look as blissful as ever. Congratulations, Reese!

Karlie Kloss

Estimated Price: $500,000

Karlie Kloss seems to be the it girl right now in the world of modeling, and it is not hard to see why! She is so charming, and we wonder who stole her heart at age 25! The answer turns out to be the brother of White House advisor Jared Kushner, Joshua Kushner. He is a pretty successful guy in his own right, and Karlie was clearly impressed.

Popular Everything

But how did he impress her? Why, with an eight carat diamond, of course! This stunning ring is set in platinum with little diamonds lining the center stone and band. What’s next for the couple? Only time will tell, but we think big things are ahead for these young lovebirds.

Jaime Pressly

Estimated Price: $250,000

You may love Jaime Pressly from Joe Dirt and My Name is Earl, and we understand the fascination! The woman is funny, plain and simple. Though she started out modeling, it was clear that Jaime had a real talent for acting and is not just a pretty face. What has she been up to since her hit series ended?

Ritani

Jaime has had a few proposals, and they have not all worked out. But we still need to see the rings! This one is from 2009, for example. Lawyer Simran Singh popped the big question with this three stone beauty set in platinum. All three stones are crowned by tiny diamonds, as well as the band. Her finger must have been blinding for awhile with five carats! Sadly, this relationship ended. Did Jaime keep the ring? An intriguing question, we must admit.

Victoria Beckham

Estimated Price: $2.5 Million

The wife of David Beckham is sure to have a stunning diamond on her finger, but you may not know that Victoria Beckham actually has a whole collection. And she constantly upgrades it! Her giant symbols of love keep changing with the styles of the time, and we are excited to see her future choices. For now, we must take a look at one stunning example to give you a basic idea about the carat level Victoria has grown used to. What do you think about this one?

Pinterest

So far, she has around 14 different rings, and the collection is estimated to be worth more than 10 million pounds! Maybe she is actually on an investment spree, but it is possible that Victoria just loves to sparkle more than anyone else we know. This stunner in particular is 17 carats! We are simply shocked at the number of rings to her name, and she is not finished yet by any means. What will she choose next?

Khloé Kardashian

Estimated Price: $850,000

Khloe Kardashian has had a very public romantic life as a reality star, and few of us can relate to that kind of relationship pressure. It must be challenging, and her marriage to basketball star Lamar Odom ended in divorce several years ago. We still need to see the ring, though!

Ritani

This engagement ring was a whole crazy 12.5 carats of diamond, and it seems almost too heavy to wear everyday on her finger! We assume she doesn’t have to do that anymore, of course. Recently, Khloe had a baby with her new partner, and she seems happier than ever. Big things are ahead for her, and we wonder if that includes new jewelry!

Mena Suvari

Estimated Price: Unknown

Mena Suvari was a standout performer in American Beauty, an Oscar winning film we all still love, love, love. We could probably watch it again right now and it would still retain its magic. And that is in part thanks to Mena! Her success on screen had to be matched by her personal life, so what has Mena been doing romantically?

Pinterest

Well, it turns out that Mena still has a little more searching to do. She got divorced from a Canadian-Italian entertainment promoter years ago, but the ring still lives on in sparkling pictures. And we have one right here to see! This 8.6 carat three stone engagement ring is set in platinum, the most expensive precious metal on the market. It is not known precisely how much this diamond creation is worth, but we have a feeling that her ex-husband spent a pretty penny on it. There’s no way around it, really!
