Celebrity Engagement Rings – my take

We all know that celeb engagement rings come in all shapes and colors, but mostly very big sizes. I have always loved keeping up with celeb rings, especially since I got ‘wedding fever’ a couple years ago. It’s pretty obscene how big and gaudy they get, but hey, if you have the money, why the hell not. I personally believe in investing in a big and beautiful rock for a few reasons.

1. It’s a token of love, it should last forever and be special!

2. It’s an asset. It won’t depreciate in value, and in fact, rings often appraise for more than what you pay if you shop smart.

3. It’s a family heirloom – you can pass it down to generations and it can always stay in the family.

Colored stones can be fun and unique. I wanted a diamond, but colored stones are becoming much more prevalent nowadays. The nice thing about them is that you can get a stone other than a diamond, which means more carats for less cost!

Jeweler – Johnathon Arndt Flawless yellow diamond estimated at 5+ carats worth around $150,000. As far as celeb rings go, I think this is tasteful and beautiful.

Elizabeth Hurley’s blue sapphire flanked by two approx. 2 carat trapezoid cut side diamonds set in platinum estimated at $100,000. Stunning!

Heidi Klum’s approx 12 carat canary diamond set in yellow gold designed by Lorraine Schwartz. Estimated at $150,000. Personal favorite of mine

18 ct sapphire oval surrounded by 14 white diamonds designed by Garrand estimated at $65,000. Timeless and elegant.

Halle Berry’s 4 carat emerald set in yellow gold, designed by Robert Mazio. I love how unique this is!

I love pave. Lots and lots of pave. Some of these are pave, but not all of them.

4 carat center stone flanked by trapezoid diamonds designed by Bader and Garrin. Estimated worth $125,000.

Molly Sim’s approx 6 carat cushion cut designed by Diana Von Furstenberg. SO gorgeous!

3 carat pear diamond surrounded by a pave setting set in platinum. Pear is one of my favorite cuts, unique and elegant.

Nicole Richie’s 4 carat brilliant cut center stone surrounded by a pave diamond setting designed by Neil Lane.

Mariah Carey’s 10 ct center stone surrounded by 58 pink diamonds and 2 half-moon diamonds, totaling 17 carats. Designed by Jacob and Company and estimated to be worth $2.5 million Talk about big spending!

Cathy Waterman engagement ring. Some sources say it’s a ‘rustic diamond’ others say it’s a moonstone. Estimated 1.5 carats. Totally unique, and totally Anna Paquin!

Asscher cut diamond set in a micropave frame with a double band. I love this ring! Almost as much as Heidi’s.

5 carat oval cut diamond set in platinum and rose gold. Estimated worth – $250,000. It’s no secret ovals are a personal fave 🙂 My favorite element of this ring is the subtle inclusion of rose gold.

Hillary Duff’s 14 carat radiant cut diamond is estimated to be worth $1 million. Whoa.

Britney Spear’s 3 carat brilliant cut Neil Lane in a pave setting. A very timeless ring!

Well if you were wondering if Jay-Z is rich… Beyonce’s 18 carat flawless emerald diamond set in a split shank pave setting. Worth $5 million!!! I love the dainty setting contrasting the massive rock.

Angelina Jolie’s elongated tablet diamond flanked by the same shape stone graduating in size. Designed by Robert Procop with Brad Pitt’s help. Not a huge fan, honestly.

Amber Rose’s Oval cut solitaire. One site said it’s set in rose gold – but I’m not sure about that. It’s a gorgeous and simple ring and I LOVE it!

Reese Witherspoon’s 4 carat Ashoka diamond set in a micropave band. Designed by Willam Goldberg and is estimated to cost around $250,000. Another top pick by me!!

Nikki Reed’s 3 carat, 3 stone Tacori engagement ring. Fun and bohemian!

Brilliant antique, conflict-free diamond in pave setting set in recycled platinum. Designed by Jamie Wolf. Such a cool looking ring!

Kate Hudson’s 9 carat emerald cut with tapered baguettes set in platinum. Estimated to be worth $200,000. Classic and all about that center stone!

So what rings are your favorite? I love Heidi Klum’s the most – the yellow gold with canary diamond is just stunning, really. I also really really love Reese Witherspoon’s and Gwyneth Paltrow’s but they are all beautiful and unique in their own way!

  1. I’m a big fan of Natalie Portman’s ring! It’s really beautiful, without being gaudy, and I love the idea of using a recycled band.. So chic of her. 😉 That would be a fun way to use a family heirloom in your engagement ring!
