Engagement rings, the best ones, are often spotted on the nimble fingers of celebrities. Once snapped, these dazzlers are instantly catapulted to global fame, making them the most talked-about aspect of the relationship. While it would be unjust to correlate the size of the ring with the profundity of a couple’s love, that’s usually the way it works. With the world fixating on their fingers, celebs often succumb, offering fans and followers a world-class sparkler that will be discussed for decades. In most cases, these discussions on their engagement rings often outlive the very relationship they represent. Why else is the world still not over Elizabeth Taylor’s 33-carat diamond from Richard Burton or Hailey Bieber’s 10-carat oval diamond by Solow & Co?
Not just Hollywood A-listers but also well-regarded royalty like Meghan Markle, Princess Eugenie of York’s ( a stunning ring starring a padparadscha sapphire surrounded by diamonds), or Charolette Casiraghi have all made head turns with a snap of their gorgeously bedecked fingers. We are delving into some classic engagement ring sets that had eyes gleaming, mouths watering, and wallets trembling in 2022 in no particular order of beauty as they are all insanely exquisite:
When you have rich in your name, just any ring won’t do, and Sofia’s millionaire boo Elliot Grainge nailed the brief. Forever truly has a nice ring to it, and in the case of Sofia Richie and Elliot Grainge, it looks like an incredible emerald-cut diamond. The precious stone weighing around 5 or 6 carats sits on a plain platinum band, providing the ultimate sparkle. The estimated cost of the ring is approximate $100,000-$150,000.
Fox’s engagement ring will be remembered not for its appearance but its idea. After shocking P.D.A.’s, sizzling mirror selfies, and even drinking each other’s blood, Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly debuted the fabulous ring of thorns! British jeweler Stephen Webster designed the Columbian emerald and diamond rings that combine into one with the help of a magnet to form a dark heart.
Each gemstone seems to be nearly 7 carats, making the ring worth almost $500,000. It would ache to remove such a thing of beauty, wouldn’t it? In this case, it literally would, as the top of the ring of thorns is precisely that. So if Megan Fox ever attempts to take the ring off, it’s actually going to hurt.
Love stories make people happy. Kourtney and Travis Barker’s certainly made our hearts warm. If anyone deserved that kind of fairytale love and an ethereal beachside proposal enveloped with roses and a $1 million ring, it is Kourtney. After being left in the lurch by Scott Disick for almost a decade, Travis Barker won her heart with a huge 12 carats oval-shaped diamond. The creation of jeweler Lorraine Schwartz is an absolute head-turner perched upon a diamond band. Funnily, Kourtney broke the delicate piece of jewelry by accidentally stepping on it and cried for hours after the mishap. We would wail too. The $1 million ring, thankfully, was repairable.
The G.O.A.T. of gymnastics also landed a sparkler that could be the G.O.A.T. of engagement rings. Her N.F.L. player fiancé popped the question with a beautiful oval-shaped solitaire inching towards an estimated $300,000. Designed by jeweler Zo Frost, Jonathan Owens handpicked the 3-carat flawless rock for Simone and mounted it on a pavé diamond band acting as the perfect halo. The oval-shaped diamond engagement ring is big on trend this year, and similar styles have been spotted on the likes of Blake Lively, Hailey Bieber, and more recently on Kourtney Kardashian.
This breathtaking beauty has had quite an impressive array of engagement rings through the year- Six Engagement Rings, to be precise(which is more than what can be said of awards won). Her latest sparkler was extra special as it was the coming together of Lopez and Ben Affleck after nearly two decades. Love took the form of an 8ct fancy vivid yellowish-green diamond. The striking gem was flanked by two baguette diamonds, bookended by a matching pair of trapezoid diamonds.
Lopez’s widely discussed ornament burned a massive hole in Affleck’s pocket to the tune of $3.5 million. Back in 2002, JLo was presented with a 6.10-carat radiant-cut pink Harry Winston diamond on her engagement to Affleck. However, the best of the lot undoubtedly is the nearly $5 million massive emerald cut sparkler A-Rod popped the question with.
