Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but the question remains when it comes to engagement bling… how big is too big?
We’ve found our favourite celebrity engagement rings that will give you serious carat-envy.
1. Kim Kardashian-West
If you thought her $2 million ring from ex, Kris Humphries was pricey, wait until you see her current bling! Kanye proposed to Kim with a 15-carat ring rumoured to cost $8 million.
2. Paris Hilton
Believe it or not, Paris Hilton was once engaged to another Paris – Paris Latsis. Greek shipping heir, Latsis proposed to heiress Hilton with a 25-carat ring, estimated at $4.7 million.
When it comes to Queen B, we were far from surprised when we saw how the size of her engagement ring. Her beau Jay Z proposed to her with a 24-carat diamond ring worth $5 million, cementing them as a Hollywood power couple indeed!
4. Elizabeth Taylor
One of Hollywood’s greatest, Elizabeth Taylor sealed the deal with Richard Burton after receiving a 33.19 carat ring estimated at $8.8 million.
5. La Toya Jackson
With La Toya Jackson, less is clearly not more. This 17.5 carat diamond ring is massive (and potentially dangerous!), boasting a 10-carat round stone, surrounded by 7.5-carats set in a platinum band. The most thoughtful part is that her fiancé, Jeffre Philip, designed this baby himself.
6. Jenny McCarthy
Donnie Wahlberg gifted some serious finger bling to current wife, Jenny McCarthy. The ring is a dazzling yellow sapphire with over 10-carats, while the band is said to be 18-carat white gold covered in diamonds.

Jennifer Aniston’s rock is a traditional style, but don’t let that fool you! Her ring features an 8-carat rock that is currently valued at $1,389,135, proving she’s a firm believer that size does matter!
8. Nicki Minaj
When we think of Nicki Minaj, we think funky, loud and unique so we expected her ring to be no different. Although, Meek Mill denies having proposed to Nicki Minaj and explains that this ring was just a gift, we can’t help but to swoon over the 10-carat heart shape cut and the fact that it’s worth half a million (and that’s not even the real deal!)
9. Ashlee Simpson
Ashlee Simpson’s fiance, Evan Ross worked with renowned designer Neil Lane to craft a wedding ring that is simply breathtaking. From the vintage inspired cuts, to the exquisite colours Ashlee Simpson’s ring is definitely one of a kind.
10. Mary-Kate Olsen
When Mary-Kate Olsen was spotted flaunting a striking ring on her wedding finger, the media began buzzing. Her piece is a vintage Cartier dating back to 1953. Apart from its enormous size, this ring features 16 sapphires surrounding a four-carat centre diamond and intricate ‘petal’ designs adorned with single cut diamonds.
