The 10 Most Expensive Engagement Rings In the World

Marriage is something to be celebrated and cherished, so what better way to symbolize your love for someone, than an expensive piece of jewelry?

Now, saying that, there’s expensive and then there’s EXPENSIVE!! You’re about to see the $10 MILLION end of expensive! Here’s a list of the 10 most expensive Engagement Rings in the world:-

10. Melania Trump: Million

Breaking into the top ten is Melania Trump’s $3 million, 25-carat emerald-cut diamond engagement ring.

The Graff diamond ring is very simplistic and oozes a sense of class. After some initial speculation into the fact that her husband paid for the ring, I’m sure by now she’s super happy with it!

9. Jennifer Lopez: $4.5 million

When Marc Anthony proposed to Jennifer Lopez in 2004, he sure did it with some style! The singer, songwriter, and actress received a rare blue 8.5-carat diamond ring from Marc, which was valued at approximately $4.5 million!

Unfortunately, the marriage didn’t last; however, the engagement likely either held or increased its value due to the association with the legendary performer.

8. Grace Kelly: $4.6 million

Back in 1995, Prince Rainier III of Monaco proposed to Grace Kelley a mahoosive 10.47 emerald-cut diamond ring by Cartier. The ring has received a lot of attention over the years, and rightly so; it’s an incredible piece of jewellery with a unique history.

If you’re in the market for an engagement ring and you have around $5 million to spend, then use this one as a reference point, and you won’t go wrong!

7. Paris Hilton: $4.7 million

Next up, we have Paris Hilton‘s engagement ring given to her by her ex-finance, Paris Latsis. The $4.7 million 24-carat canary diamond ring ended up being auctioned off to help provide aid for the victims of Hurricane Katrina, as the couple decided to call off the wedding.

At least some good came out of it. $4.7 million can go a long way in times of need.

6. Beyonce: $5 million

Jay-Z proposed to Beyonce with an 18-carat emerald-cut flawless centre diamond, which is set on a split shank band. Lorraine Schwartz created the platinum band, which contains micro-pavé diamonds.

Since its creation, it’s also inspired a number of other celebrity engagement rings, some of which are featured on our list! Overall, the ring is subtle, classy, and striking all at the same time.

5. Anna Kournikova: $5.4 million

Former professional tennis player Anna Kournikova received a beautiful champagne and cognac 11-carat pear-shaped diamond, classicly mounted with diamond accents, from her now-husband, Enrique Iglesias.

It’s certainly difficult to miss, and I’m sure it helps start a lot of conversations, as it’s striking, to say the least.

If you’re thinking of designing something for your partner, then perhaps using this one as your inspiration might not be a bad idea, as it’s in the top five most expensive engagement rings in the world. However, don’t forget the price; it’s $5.4 million!

4. Kim Kardashian: $8 million

As always, only the best will do for Kim Kardashian. Kanye proposed to Kim with a beautiful 15-carat D-colour, flawless cushion-cut diamond, made by Lorraine Schwartz.

The diamond itself is set as a solitaire on a thin platinum band with micro-pavé diamonds. It really is a stunning example of bespoke jewellery and well worth its place among the most expensive engagement rings in the world.

3. Elizabeth Taylor: $8.8 million

In third place, we have Elizabeth Taylor’s engagement ring. Elizabeth’s ring held the title of the largest and most expensive celebrity engagement ring of all time for several decades.

It’s a 33-carat Asscher cut Krupp diamond, set in platinum, which was given to her by Richard Burton. It’s one hell of a ring, that’s for sure!

2. Blue Diamond by Bvlgari: $9.5 million
