The most expensive celebrity engagement rings
Celebrity marriages may not always last — but a diamond is forever. When the world’s richest and most famous decide to tie the knot, they mark the occasion with diamond rings fit for their status. Try not to turn green with envy as we take you through the most expensive celebrity engagement rings.
Drew Barrymore (Fiancé: Will Kopelman)
Drew Barrymore has had quite an impressive career so far — from appearing in a dog food commercial at only 11 months old, to starring in countless blockbusters, to producing and directing.
Naturally, her significant other, Will Kopelman, had to give her an appropriately impressive engagement ring. The 4-carat radiant-cut diamond ring is valued at $80,000.
In 2016, Barrymore and Kopelman went their separate ways after four years of marriage. According to the couple, the split was amicable and they’re both happy to have two lovely daughters together, Olive and Frankie.
Kate Moss (Fiancé: Jamie Hince)
Kate Moss’ name is almost synonymous with fashion and style. Therefore, it’s a good thing her fiancé, musician Jamie Hince, picked a stylish, custom ring. Bibliophiles will appreciate this one — the ring is based on the design of a ring F. Scott Fitzgerald gifted his wife Zelda.
The ring reportedly cost £67,000 ($87,374.70). The pair married in 2011, but sadly split in 2016.
Emily Ratajkowski (Fiancé: Sebastian Bear-McClard)
This model and actress shocked the world when she announced her engagement to fellow actor Sebastian Bear-McClard on Instagram — no one even knew they were dating! Indeed, the couple were only together a few weeks before deciding to elope.
Ratajkowski’s ring is doubly impressive — it actually has two different diamonds. What else can you do when you can’t decide between a pear-shaped and square-shaped diamond?
Reportedly, the ring set Bear-McClard back $90,000.
Jessica Biel (Fiancé: Justin Timberlake)
If you really want to impress your significant other, consider codesigning her engagement ring, like Justin Timberlake did for Jessica Biel. Of course, it also helps to have $130,000 to blow on one item of jewelry.
This ring contains a 6-carat diamond flanked by aquamarine stones, which are set in blackened platinum. The effect is simply stunning; hats off to JT!
Timberlake proposed to Biel in December 2011, and the two eloped in October of the following year.
Heidi Klum (Fiancé: Seal)
Supermodel Heidi Klum and Grammy-winning musician Seal married in 2005. When they got engaged, Klum wore a beautiful 10-carat canary-yellow diamond ring centered in a gold band of pavé diamonds. The ring is estimated to have a cost of $150,000.
Sadly, the pair decided to call it quits in 2014, but that won’t stop us from admiring this stunning jewelry item.
Scarlett Johansson (Fiancé: Colin Jost)
Hollywood bombshell Scarlett Johansson has been betrothed to SNL funnyman Colin Jost since May 2019. Jost popped the question with a unique-looking 11-carat ring that is valued at over $400,000.
The couple met on SNL — Johansson was hosting and Jost was one of the head writers. According to Scarlett Johansson, the two met the third time she’d hosted SNL in 2010, though Colin Jost said it was four years earlier. Oops. In any event, the two started dating in 2017, after Jost’s costar Kate McKinnon set them up.
Cardi B (Fiancé: Offset)
Offset and Cardi B aren’t shy about showing off their flashy jewelry, so we shouldn’t be surprised that the “Bad and Boujee” rapper bought Cardi an impressive engagement ring. Of course, valued at around $500,000, the 8-carat pear-shaped diamond ring does not disappoint.
Cardi and Offset married in 2017, and welcomed their first child, Kulture Kiari Cephus, less than a year later.
Jennifer Aniston (Fiancé: Justin Theroux)
Jennifer Aniston just doesn’t seem to age. Like her stunning diamond engagement ring, she is forever. And what a ring it is! The 8-carat radiant-cut diamond ring was given to her by then-significant other, actor and screenwriter Justin Theroux.
Reportedly, the dazzling ring cost a dizzying $500,000. Unfortunately, Aniston and Theroux’s relationship ran its course in 2018, after nearly three years of marriage.
Angelina Jolie (Fiancé: Brad Pitt)
Brad Pitt and jeweler Robert Procop worked together for an entire year on designing this 16-carat ring. Jolie’s ring reportedly cost $500,000. The couple tied the knot in August 2014.
Over the course of their two-year marriage, the couple adopted three kids from orphanages around the world, and conceived three biological children.
Sadly, Jolie and Pitt decided to split in September 2016.
Amal Alamuddin (Fiancé: George Clooney)
George Clooney’s now-wife, Amal, is a lawyer specializing in human rights, so naturally he had to be sure the diamond on her engagement ring was ethically mined. The ring, which features a 7-carat diamond with two tapered baguettes, is stunning — with a price tag to match.
Reportedly, the ring cost a whopping $750,000. George and Amal married in 2014, and welcomed twins in June 2017.
Paris Hilton (Fiancé: Chris Zylka)
Another engagement bites the dust. This time it’s between socialite/businesswoman/DJ Paris Hilton and actor Chris Zylka. Still, valued at $2 million, the 20-carat teardrop diamond designed by Michael Greene is quite impressive.
Paris Hilton loved the ring so much she had several copies made to keep the genuine article safe. Unfortunately, the pair split nine months after Zylka dropped to one knee.
Elizabeth Taylor (Fiancé: Michael Todd)
Now, we know what you’re thinking … This one’s not technically an engagement ring — it was just a gift to Elizabeth Taylor from her husband Michael Todd. Even so, we couldn’t resist putting it on this list. It stands to reason that one of Hollywood’s most celebrated stars must have an equally stunning ring.
This ring does not disappoint. It contains a gorgeous 30-carat emerald-cut diamond you can spot from a mile away. The ring sold in a 2011 auction for a staggering $3.7 million.
Beyoncé (Fiancé: Jay-Z)
Many years ago, Jay-Z professed that “Money Ain’t a Thang,” and he wasn’t kidding. The 18-carat center diamond he presented to Beyoncé set him back $5 million — chump change for the rapper/mogul/billionaire.
Naturally, the ring is nothing short of breathtaking, as befits a superstar of Bey’s caliber.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z wed in 2008 and have three children together.
Jennifer Lopez (Fiancé: Alex Rodriguez)
J.Lo said that she felt “electricity” from the moment she first met and locked eyes with Alex Rodriguez, at a baseball game with her then-husband Marc Anthony. Fast-forward 13 years later, and the two bumped into each other at a restaurant. The rest is history.
When A-Rod popped the question, he presented “Jenny from the Block” with quite an expensive rock. The 16-carat emerald-cut diamond is reportedly worth $1.8 million.
Ariana Grande (Fiancé: Pete Davidson)
We were sad to see Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson split up before tying the knot, but at least the short-lived relationship inspired some good songs and jokes. In any case, Pete presented Ariana with an impressive ring when he proposed. Take a look.
Reportedly, the 3-carat pear-shaped diamond ring cost him $100,000. The relationship may have ended, but at least the diamond is forever. Thank u, next.
Hailey Baldwin (Fiancé: Justin Bieber)
When Justin Bieber decided he wanted to turn Hailey Baldwin into Hailey Bieber, he spared no expense picking the perfect engagement ring. The “Yummy” singer dropped $400,000 on a 6-to-10-carat oval diamond made by Solow & Co.
Hailey first met Justin way back in 2009, but it wouldn’t be until 2016 when the couple would make their relationship Instagram-official. In the coming years, they’d have their ups and downs until July 2018, when Justin popped the question. Two months later, the couple tied the knot.
Sofía Vergara (Fiancé: Joe Manganiello)
When this True Blood actor proposed to the Modern Family star, he presented her with quite a ring. The 7-carat cushion-cut diamond with a micro-pavé halo reportedly set Manganiello back $500,000. We’d expect nothing less for the highest-paid actress in television.
Sofia said “yes” in December 2014, and the couple eloped in November 2015. Vergara and Manganiello starred alongside each other in the 2019 baseball drama, Bottom of the Ninth.
Miranda Kerr (Fiancé: Evan Spiegel)
Australian model, businesswoman, and author Miranda Kerr received quite a piece of bling from her now-husband, the tech-billionaire cofounder of Snap Inc. (responsible for Snapchat), Evan Spiegel. The 3-carat brilliant-cut diamond ring is flanked by tapered baguettes on a platinum band and valued at around $85,000.
In 2016, when Spiegel popped the question, Forbes estimated that he had a net worth of $4 billion, so even an expensive engagement ring like this one probably didn’t make much of a dent. Spiegel and Kerr married a year later and now have two children together.
Natalie Portman (Fiancé: Benjamin Millepied)
A-list actress Natalie Portman takes a socially conscious stand with her gorgeous engagement ring. The $200,000 diamond ring was designed by jeweler Jamie Wolf and includes a conflict-free diamond set in recycled platinum.
It’s truly a ring fit for a queen (Padmé). Millepied — an esteemed dancer and choreographer — met Portman while working on the set of Black Swan. The couple married in 2012 and have two children together.
Meghan Markle (Fiancé: Prince Harry)
Prince Harry gave actress and future princess Meghan Markle a ring fit for royalty. The ring has not one, not two, but three diamonds — two of which come from Princess Diana’s personal collection. The final rock comes from Botswana, a place that left quite an impression on the couple.
The ring is valued at $350,000. All eyes were on the pair when they wed in 2018, and apparently the public life wore them down — the former Duke and Duchess of Sussex decided to step down from being royalty and move to Canada.
Blake Lively (Fiancé: Ryan Reynolds)
When these two Hollywood A-listers decided to tie the knot, Reynolds presented Lively with a stunning ring. This 12-carat oval-cut diamond ring with a micro-pavé band is valued at approximately $2 million.
We don’t know exactly when or how the Deadpool star popped the question to the Gossip Girl actress, but we know the two eloped in September 2012.
Both Reynolds and Lively are known for their relatable personalities and often self-deprecating humor on social media.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (Fiancé: Jason Statham)
Supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is engaged to action superstar Jason Statham, who spared no expense in picking out the perfect engagement ring. The stunning ring contains a large 5-carat center stone flanked by micro-pavé-set diamonds.
Statham sourced the breathtaking piece of jewelry from jeweler Neil Lane’s archives — the ring comes from the early 1900s, a period renowned for its ostentatious jewelry. It is priced at approximately $350,000.
Gabrielle Union (Fiancé: Dwyane Wade)
Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade got engaged in December 2013 — and the basketball superstar gifted the actress/author quite an engagement ring to mark the occasion. The 8.5-carat cushion-cut diamond is worth an estimated $1 million!
Union and Wade tied the knot in August 2014. Four years later, they had a daughter.
Kate Middleton (Fiancé: Prince William)
When Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton, he did so with a remarkable ring. The ring holds an 18-carat oval sapphire and 14 smaller diamonds that belonged to Princess Diana when she was engaged to Prince Charles.
It’s estimated the ring costs £300,000 (about $391,189.50).
Kate and William first met at a university fashion show in 2001 and started dating two years later. The couple finally tied the knot in 2011.
Lady Gaga (Fiancé: Taylor Kinney)
Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney seemed like the perfect match from the moment they met on the set of the music video for her hit song, “Yoü and I.” Sadly, the relationship didn’t outlast their 2015 engagement. But that won’t stop us from admiring the ring!
This 6-carat heart-shaped diamond ring was made by famed jeweler Lorraine Schwartz and is valued at $500,000.
Lady Gaga blamed work pressure for causing their split.
Kim Kardashian (Fiancé: Kanye West)
Regrettably, this ring was stolen in Paris in 2016. Still, that shouldn’t stop us from admiring this impressive accessory. Valued at $4.5 million, Lorraine Schwartz designed this breathtaking 20-carat ring for Kim and Kanye’s engagement.
The Paris robbers held Kim at gunpoint and made off with an estimated total of $10 million worth of jewelry. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Kim K. only wears replicas since the incident. After all, it’s unlikely that anyone would accuse her of not being able to afford the genuine article.
Mariah Carey (Fiancé: James Packer)
Who else did you expect? Honestly, we’d be disappointed if a diva like Mimi didn’t get an over-the-top engagement ring. When Australian billionaire James Packer proposed to the pop star, he did it with a Wilfredo Rosado-designed 35-carat emerald-cut diamond set in platinum.
Reportedly, the ring cost $10 million.
Sadly, the songbird and the businessman parted ways in 2016, less than a year after the proposal.
Olivia Wilde (Fiancé: Jason Sudeikis)
Fellow thespians Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis have been engaged for quite some time — Sudeikis proposed to Wilde in January 2013. As of yet, they haven’t tied the knot, but that could change at any minute.
The ring contains a brilliant-cut diamond surrounded by a halo of glimmering emeralds. Unfortunately, we don’t know how the price tag on this one. That being said, it surely cost Sudeikis a pretty penny.
Brooke Shields (Fiancé: Chris Henchy)
Brooke Shields might arguably be one of the most photogenic women of the past century. Naturally, she needed a similarly stunning engagement ring. Hats off to her husband Chris Henchy for going all out on this ring.
This beautiful ring contains a jaw-dropping center diamond — and if that wasn’t enough, it’s surrounded by micro-pavé-set diamonds. Once again, we don’t have a reliable estimate on its cost, but we can only imagine it’s nothing less than astronomical.
Anne Hathaway (Fiancé: Adam Shulman)
Adam Shulman popped the question in 2012, and the couple married under a year later. When he dropped to one knee, he presented the A-list actress with a 6-carat emerald-cut diamond ring he codesigned with Kwiat Heritage Jewels. The ring is estimated to be worth $150,000.
Shulman and Hathaway have two young children and live together in Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
