Biggest Celebrity Engagement Rings: Part I

9th February 2018 by Amey M

We know that celebrities like to go big when they get engaged but some just know no limits. From the ginormous 33-carat engagement ring that belonged to Elizabeth Taylor to Grace Kelly’s 10-carat one - that now sounds modest, we have made a list of the celebrities biggest engagement rings.

Mariah Carey

If someone was able to steal the throne from Elizabeth Taylor, it had to be Mariah Carey. In January 2016, Australian billionaire James Packer proposed to Mariah with a show-stopping 35-carat diamond ring. Although they split before tying the knot, she still wears the impressive ring. Can you blame her?

Even though this ring was ginormous, she was previously engaged to Nick Cannon who, knowing her taste, propose with a stunning 17-carat  emerald-cut diamond with a pink centre surrounded by 58 punk diamonds and two half-moon diamonds on either side. Let’s just say that simplicity is not her style.

Elizabeth Taylor

No one can deny that Elizabeth Taylor was the reigning queen of diamonds.  She earned this title when in 1969, Richard Burton proposed to her with a breathtaking, gigantic, 33-carat diamond engagement ring. This diamond was originally called the Krupp Diamond but now is now as the Elizabeth Taylor Diamond, which demonstrates how big this diamond is. When Elizabeth died in 2011, the famous ring was sold for 8.8 million at auction.

Paris Hilton

She came pretty close to steal Elizabeth Taylor’s throne when her first husband, Paris Latsis, propose to her with a gigantic 24-carat emerald-cut diamond that was estimated to be worth $4.7 Million. Unfortunately, they split up and she had to return the ring.

But don’t feel too bad for her, because she is now engaged to the Leftovers actor, Chris Zylka who, during a trip to Aspen he got down in one knee and asked her to marry him with a massive 20-carat pear-shaped diamond engagement ring worth $2 Million.

Kim Kardashian

Her second husband, the NBA player, Kris Humphries, proposed to her with a 20-carat emerald cut diamond ring. Unfortunately, their marriage didn’t work but Kim bought the ring from Kris for the same amount he paid (that, in case you are wondering, was $2 Million).

But Kim is not known for being modest when it comes to luxury so when she got engaged to Kanye West, he chose a beautiful – and not at all small 15-carat diamond ring.

Beyoncé

Beyoncé or as the world likes to calls her, Queen B, got an engagement ring worth of her nickname. When Jay-Z proposed to her, he did it with a stunning 18-carat diamond worth $5 Million. 

Hilary Duff

She got engaged to ice-hockey NHL player Mike Comrie, when he proposed with a 14-carat princess-cut diamond ring worth $1 Million. Unfortunately, the couple broke up in 2016.

Blake Lively

They met on the set of the Green Lantern and they fell in love. Ryan Reynolds proposed to Blake Lively with a beautiful 12-carat oval-cut light pink diamond with a rose gold and pave diamond band that he designed with his trusty jeweller. The estimated value: $2 Million.
