Hollywood's most expensive engagement rings

We always look at celebrities fashion; we admire and scrutinize. We update ourselves with what they wear, how they wear and where they shop. In times, we try to copy their looks. However, it is as much fascinating as fashion updates to take a look at celebrities’ engagement rings. A little peek on how some celebrities say that big Yes! and how they sport that big bling is terrifyingly inspiring.


Just like every one of us, celebrities get engaged because of love. Of course, it must be love! But because they are public figures, everyone would be looking at the engagement ring. The first question that everyone asks is “How much?” It's inevitable that people compare the estimated price of their bling. Some celebrity betrothed turn out to be big spenders when it comes to love. They show how much they are willing to spend for the woman that they intend to spend the rest of their lives with. On the other hand, there are also these practical celebrity betrothed that are not very extravagant; spending only reasonable amount for a reasonably beautiful bling. Yet, we cannot rate the degree of their love towards their celebrity fiancĂ©es mainly based on the amount of their engagement rings. After all, a ring, regardless of its symbol and worth, is just a ring. There are so much more in a marriage than just a bling.

Do you remember the time when there was a huge gossip about the Bennifer engagement ring? When Ben Affleck proposed to Jennifer Lopez, the estimated cost of the ring dropped jaws. The first rough estimate of the ring was $3 million. However, the latter estimation by experts settled at $1.2 million. That was a lot. No wonder the talk about that ring dominated the gossip columns across the country. Yet, despite the attention that the ring generated, it didn't, as it turned out, top the list of Hollywood's most expensive engagement rings. In fact, it is said to only 6th from the top.

Here are only some of the most expensive celebrity engagement rings.

There are still many of the most expensive engagement rings in Hollywood that we are not privileged to see. It would be neat to get a glimpse of Paris Hilton's 24-carat emerald cut diamond ring from Paris Latis on his promise to wed her which is said to top the list of the most expensive bling in Hollywood. Despite the engagement being canceled only after five months, their engagement ring still remains at the top.

Some ladies are just privileged to have a rare and very expensive stone as a symbol of love.
