Engagement Rings And celebrity wearing one

Famous Celebrity Engagement Rings

There are so many famous celebrity engagement rings and we wouldn’t be able to list them all. Here is a list of some of the more notable examples. Feel free to add more famous celebrity engagement rings in the comments below.

Princess Diana and Kate Middleton

Okay, they’re not celebrities in the “Kardashian” sense of the word, but both Diana and Kate are instantly recognizable on TV or in pictures, such is the world’s obsession with the British monarchy.

When Prince Charles proposed to Lady Diana Spencer, he did so with a ring showcasing a 12ct oval blue sapphire, surrounded by 14 diamonds. Store-bought, rather than custom made, the original £28,000 ($40,000) purchase price is incredibly inexpensive by today’s celebrity standards, but the legacy of Diana – and the fact that the ring is now on the finger of Kate Middleton, her daughter-in-law – means it’s value is now over £200,000 ($280,000).

Amal Alamuddin

As a lawyer and human rights activist, it’s probably only right that the future Mrs. George Clooney would insist on an ethically sourced diamond for her engagement ring.

Sporting a 7ct emerald cut diamond, the ring was impressive enough to turn even the most cynical head, but it seems that bigger might not always be better. At the end of 2015, Alamuddin announced that the ring was too big for practical purposes when she was working at her day job, and so it was decided that the ring would stay locked away for all but important occasions. In its place, she now wears a platinum band alongside her wedding ring.

Kim Kardashian

Of course, you can’t have any topic that involves celebrities without mentioning the “celebityest” of them all. When Kanye West asked Kardashian if he could be her third husband, he asked whilst holding a 15-carat cushion cut diamond. The center stone is also set on top of a ring of other cut diamonds. Designed by West himself the confirmed $1.6m cost was, at the time, the most expensive engagement ring in the world, although it has since been surpassed (see below).

If 15 carats sounds like a lot, it is, but compare it to the 20 carats in the engagement ring Kardashian was given by her second husband Chris Humphries, and it seems no stone will be left uncut to keep up with anybody!

Mariah Carey

We know that you’re wondering which ring passed Kim Kardashian’s for the title of most expensive ever, and here it is.

Given that even diamonds at 2 carats can easily bring oohs and aahs from those who view them, one can only imagine the reaction a 35-carat emerald cut diamond would get. Valued at $7.5m, the ring was designed by close Carey friend, Wilfredo Rosado, and presented to Carey by then-boyfriend James Packer who, it must be said, is lucky enough to have enough billions in the bank to afford such a creation.

Eva Longoria

There is a definite celebrity trend when it comes to engagement rings, that shows bigger isn’t always the way. When Longoria became engaged to Jose Baston, he chose a beautiful ruby as the center stone with pavé diamonds creating a spectacular halo.

In a throwback to a time when Richard Burton was showering Liz Taylor with gems, Baston also threw in a pair of matching ruby and diamond earrings to complete a set.

Lady Gaga

In defense of then-boyfriend Taylor Kinney, if you’re going to propose on Valentine’s, you need to know that what you’re proposing with is going to get the job done.

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez said yes to Ben Affleck’s second proposal, which had even more diamonds. The star from “Argo” proposed with a 6.1-carat pink diamond ring in November 2002. Twenty years later, on April 8, 2022, he replaced it with an 8.5-carat green diamond ring. According to Ilan Portugali, Tamara Rahaminov and Nicol Goldfiner of Rahaminov Diamonds, the one-of-a-kind stone is surrounded by gold pins and two white diamonds in the shape of a trapezoid.

Jennifer Lawrence

It’s classic and makes a statement: Jennifer Lawrence’s radiant-cut diamond sparkler on a gold band. This accessory was given to the Hunger Games actor by Cooke Maroney in early 2019, only eight months after the couple started dating.

Hailey Bieber

Justin Bieber asked Hailey Bieber to marry him on July 7, 2018, with a huge oval-shaped diamond set in an 18k gold band that he created himself. It was said to cost about $500,000.

Lily Collins

It was in the desert of New Mexico in September 2020 that Charlie McDowell, a film director, asked Lily Collins to marry him. Which part of the plan stands out the most? For his now-wife, he gave her a bezel-set, rose-cut diamond ring that she made.

Anne Hathaway

Katy Perry

On February 14, 2019, Orlando Bloom asked Katy Perry to marry him with a one-of-a-kind ring in the shape of a flower. Bloom didn’t choose a standard diamond as the center stone. Instead, she chose a big pink stone with eight round diamonds around it set on a gold band.

Kourtney Kardashian

In Montecito, California, on October 17, 2021, Travis Barker got down on one knee in front of a heart-shaped arrangement of red roses and candles. In the background was the Pacific Ocean. As part of his sweet proposal, he gave Kourtney Kardashian an oval-shaped solitaire diamond ring with pavé accents. The huge ring has about 10 to 12 carats of diamonds and is thought to have cost between $500,000 and $1 million.
