Some of the Most Expensive Celebrity Wedding Rings and Engagement Rings
Jennifer Lopez's Engagement Ring
Former baseball player Alex Rodriguez proposed to Jennifer Lopez with an unbelievable emerald-cut solitaire engagement ring that you have to see to believe. Jewelry experts tell The Knot that J. Lo's massive diamond alone weighs approximately 15 carats and boasts an estimated value of at least $1 million due to its high clarity and color. In addition to the impressive sparkler, A-Rod proposed with an adorably romantic trail of red rose petals leading her from the hallway to their bed, on top of which he spelled out "I [Love] U" in more rose petals.
Meghan Markle's Engagement Ring
Meghan Markle's three-stone diamond engagement ring from Harry, Duke of Sussex, weighs approximately 6 carats and is estimated to cost upwards of $350,000. What's more, the ring also has profound personal significance to the couple. Prince Harry worked with jeweler Cleave and Company to design a one-of-a-kind ring featuring a gorgeous cushion-cut center stone sourced from Botswana, one of the couple's favorite destinations. The center stone is also flanked by two smaller diamonds sourced from a brooch in his late mother Princes Diana's personal collection.
Although this celebrity engagement ring is an undeniable show-stopper, in 2019, the Duchess of Sussex stepped out with a redesigned version. It appears she traded in the original yellow gold band for a dainty pave diamond band.
Cardi B's Engagement Ring
Cardi B's engagement ring from rapper Offset is one of the flashiest celebrity engagement rings from recent years. Her sparkler features 8 carats in diamonds, including a massive pear-shaped center stone, two diamond halos (one of white diamonds and one of pink diamonds), and more white diamonds on the shank. Pink diamonds are considered to be some of the rarest in the world; this sparkly number is especially unique. As for the ring's setting, it appears to be set in either platinum or white gold. In one red carpet interview with E! News, Cardi B revealed Offset spent "a half-million" on the ring.
Kim Kardashian West's Engagement Ring
Kim Kardashian's giant engagement ring from Kanye West is a Lorraine Schwartz creation. When it comes to the most amazing celebrity engagement rings, this one has certainly earned its spot at the top. It features a massive cushion-cut diamond-- a perfect D flawless type 2A rock to be exact. The ring also showcases a thin, delicate pave band covered in twinkly diamonds. At approximately 15 carats, this dazzling engagement ring is estimated to cost between $2 million and $4 million.
Beyoncé's Engagement Ring
Renowned celebrity jeweler Lorraine Schwartz designed Beyoncé's 24-carat emerald-cut diamond engagement ring with a platinum split shank from her husband Jay Z. Beyoncé's flawless sparkler is estimated to cost about $5 million.
Kate Middleton's Engagement Ring
William, Duke of Cambridge, proposed to his college sweetheart Kate Middleton, now the Duchess of Cambridge, with Princess Diana's iconic sapphire and diamond engagement ring designed by Garrard.

Experts guess this famous royal engagement ring is about 12 carats and is now worth approximately $500,000.
Serena Williams's Engagement Ring
Tennis champion Serena Williams fittingly debuted her massive engagement ring from Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian on Reddit. The sparkler is a three-stone ring set in a platinum band.

The flower-shaped ring is set in yellow gold and features a large, pink oval center stone surrounded by eight round white diamonds. Diamond experts tell The Knot the rare, pink-hued gem (likely either a ruby or vivid pink diamond) looks to weigh in at 4 carats and is valued between $25,000 to $50,000 on its own. But with the addition of the gold setting and halo of colorless diamonds, this one-of-a-kind bauble could have cost Bloom anywhere from $500,000 to $2 million.

Elizabeth Taylor's Engagement Ring
Of all of Hollywood icon Elizabeth Taylor's iconic jewelry, her gigantic diamond from Richard Burton takes the cake for the largest and most expensive rock she ever received. It wasn't technically an engagement ring, since Taylor and Burton were already married at the time of its purchase. The stone was originally won by Cartier at an auction in 1969, but Burton secured the ring for his wife the next day because he knew how much she wanted it. Known as the Taylor-Burton diamond, this pear-cut beauty weighs 68 carats and was acquired by Burton for $1.1 million. Shortly after receiving the ring, Taylor found that it was too heavy to wear on her finger, so she had it commissioned into a necklace instead.
Julianne Hough's Engagement Ring

Jennifer Aniston's Engagement Ring
While Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston are no longer married, that doesn't make her engagement ring any less impressive. Before the couple said "I do," the Friends actress wore a giant, 9-carat cushion-cut diamond from the actor, which was rumored to have cost upwards of $1 million.

Basketball player Dwyane Wade proposed to Gabrielle Union with a massive, 8.5-carat diamond engagement ring that's valued to be about $1 million. It's a dramatic cushion-cut diamond that certainly steals the show. Even sweeter? Wade was accompanied by his two sons during the sentimental proposal.
Paris Hilton's Engagement Ring
Paris Hilton received a head-turning pear-shaped engagement ring, designed by Greene & Co., from Chris Zylka. Valued around $2 million (and taking up pretty much Hilton's entire left ring finger), the enormous bauble weighs in at about 20 carats, making it one of the glitziest modern celebrity engagement rings. Hilton and Zylka broke off their engagement in November 2018, but that doesn't mean Hilton and the ring went separate ways. The reality star and heiress reportedly plans on keeping—and wearing—this statement rock for the foreseeable future.
