Bling-Bling Cha-Ching! These Celebrity Engagement Rings Are Worth a Fortune
While engagement rings are generally quite expensive, celebrities take often take them to a whole other level. Hey, when you’re swimming in money, why not spend it on the one you love?
Some celebrities have spent millions of dollars on engagement rings alone. These 5 celebrity brides got proposed to with rings worth more money than most people will see in their entire lives. Check them out!
1. Mariah Carey
While Mariah Carey got an expensive ring from her last husband Nick Cannon, it was nothing compared to what her next fiancé gave her. Billionaire James Parker spent a ridiculous $10 million on a 35-carat, emerald-cut, diamond engagement ring. Sadly, the two never actually got married. Instead, they broke off their engagement. However, as Parker was the one who called it off in the first place, Carey legally gets to keep the ring, which has to sting for Mr. Parker.
2. Paris Hilton
Back in 2005, Paris Hilton was on top of the world and on the cover of every tabloid magazine on the newsstand. That was also the year she met Paris Latsis, a Greek socialite, and heir to a shipping enterprise, whose family is worth billions. The two Paris’s fell in love and Latsis proposed with a 24-carat canary diamond engagement ring worth nearly $5 million. However, the two never married and Hilton stopped wearing the ring a few months after their engagement became public news.
3. Kim Kardashian
When Kanye West married Kim Kardashian, we all knew the ring was going to be spectacular. West spent over $4 million on the stunning diamond engagement ring. However, that same ring became even more famous when it was stolen during the jewellery heist that Kardashian fell victim to in Paris, 2016. Nobody knows if Kardashian will ever get the ring back.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z make one of the most famous power couples on the planet. They got married back in 2008, but before that, Jay-Z gave his bride-to-be a flawless 18-carat, emerald-cut diamond engagement ring. This cost him a staggering $5 million, but to a couple worth hundreds of millions, it didn’t set them back too much in the money department.
5. Elizabeth Taylor
The late Elizabeth Taylor is no stranger to weddings. In fact, she had 7 different husbands during her life. Her 5th (and 6th) husband, Richard Burton paid nearly $9 million for her engagement ring which, for many years, was the most expensive ring in Hollywood history. It was a 33-carat Krupp Diamond, set in platinum. She wore the ring almost daily, which was an incredible task considering how large and valuable the diamond was.
