Celebrity couples always come with fantastic love stories. But it is not their affection that’s most attractive but their expression of love- engagement rings! Over the years, some handsome couples have come together to tell tales of love. Some got together after decades apart; for some, it was love at first sight and for others, the prince came along after going through several frogs. One commonality between these differences was how startlingly gorgeous the rings were. The list below comprises the top 10 most expensive celebrity engagement rings ever. We would gladly give an arm and a leg for something even remotely close to them, but for now, let’s take a few minutes to learn of the lovely ladies sporting these dazzlers on their nimble fingers-


10. Kim Kardashian – $3,942,196.
Not a name one expects to see at the bottom of the list; it is only a testament to the gorgeousness that awaits you. Kanye proposed to Kim with a spectacular 15-carat cushion-cut diamond engagement ring in 2013. The D flawless, type 2A diamond designed by Lorraine Schwartz looks ethereal set in a platinum band. Vanessa Bryant and Jennifer Lopez also made it to the number 10 spot. In 2003, Kobe bought Vanessa a $4 million 8-carat diamond ring with purple diamonds. Around the same time, singer Marc Anthony proposed to J.Lo with an 8.5-carat blue diamond ring worth $4 million.


9. Paris Hilton – $4,632,081
Greek shipping heir Paris Latsis proposed to the diva Paris in May 2005 with a dazzling 24-carat canary diamond ring that was valued at $4.7 million. Rumors suggested in true heiress style, she was presented with a buffet of 15 alternative rocks to pick from. The chosen one, she later complained, was too heavy to wear.

8. Beyoncé – $4,927,746
When music royalty gets together, they represent their union with a multi-million-dollar ring. In the case of Jay-Z and Queen B, it is a $5 million 24-carat emerald-cut stunner. Lorraine Schwartz designed Beyoncé’s engagement ring. The amazing rings featured a Type IIa diamond that sits perfectly on the platinum ring. The music mogul proposed to the diva in 2008. Her fans got a dekko at the glittering expression of love first during her appearance on Fashion Rocks at the Radio City Music Hall, New York.

7. Jennifer Lopez, Alex Rodriguez – $4,927,746
Alex Rodriguez popped the question in March 2019 with a nearly $5 million massive emerald cut sparkler. It wasn’t Jennifer’s first engagement ring, but at the time, it certainly was her best. Little did she know in the years to come, there would be one more, perhaps her last that would be the best of the lot? Alex proposed to an unsuspecting Jennifer on the beach.


6. Anna Kournikova – $5,321,965
Anna Kournikova and Enrique Iglesias are one of the most stable and private couples in the entertainment industry. They have been together for 22 years. Anna’s argyle diamond ring features a pear-shaped pink diamond weighing 11 carats, flanked by trillion-cut diamonds. Argyle mine gemstones have a cognac and champagne color which made Iglesias’s choice a stellar one.

5. Jennifer Lopez, Ben Affleck – $5,913,295
The lady with the most beautiful engagement rings reappears, owing to her now-husband Ben Affleck. He beat his record (the Harry Winston diamond in 2002) with a green diamond sourced by Ilan Portugali of Beverly Hills Diamonds for the second engagement ring. A matching pair of trapezoid-shaped white diamonds flank the 8.5-carat natural green diamond. The Diamond Pro CEO Mike Fried told Page Six, “A green diamond of that size is incredibly rare and would dwarf the value of their previous engagement ring. I would value the ring well over $5 million and could be worth more than $10 million.’

The only one beating Jennifer Lopez’s record at rings and their astronomical prices is Elizabeth Taylor, who was engaged ten times. The Welsh actor, Richard Burton, first proposed to the jewelry lover with an emerald Bulgari brooch. Five years into their first marriage, Burton got the femme fatale, the jaw-dropping Krupp diamond. This 33.19-carat Asscher cut diamond was purchased for $305,000 in 1968. She wore the stone for the rest of her life, and it was renamed the Taylor-Burton diamond.

3. Mariah Carey – $9,855,491
Australian billionaire James Packer’s sensational 35-carat diamond ring will be remembered as one the most expensive items of celebrity jewelry in history. Tapered baguettes flanked the emerald-cut diamond. According to Page Six, Carey reportedly sold the ring for a rumored $2.1 million to an L.A. jeweler.


2. Jackie Kennedy Onassis – $21,682,080
Greek shipping industry mogul Aristotle Onassis presented Jackie with an astounding 40.42-carat weight diamond ring that was a part of the famous South African Lesotho brown diamond. The marquise cut, VS2 clarity diamond, was one of 18 stones cut from the original 601-carat weight rough stone. The sparkler was sported by Jackie only twice and stored in a New York City bank vault until her passing.


Grace Kelly Rainier III – $43,659,825
Grace Kelly’s legendary Cartier diamond engagement ring flaunts a 10.48-carat emerald-cut stone. To emphasize the ring’s originality, the jewelers designed a platinum mount with a baguette-cut diamond on each side of the central stone. The story of the proposal is heart-warming, too, as Rainier traveled to the actress’s hometown in Philadelphia that Christmas to propose. The Princess of Monaco’s Cartier engagement ring reportedly cost a jaw-dropping $4 million to make.
