When you're a celebrity, your engagement isn't just about you and your partner. It's about the whole world watching to see what ring you're going to rock on your finger. We're not saying that engagement rings are competition—that would be a little weird—but they make for some interesting reads.
Here are our top picks for celebrity engagement rings:
Kourtney Kardashian's Engagement Ring from Travis Barker
The ring was designed by jeweler Lorraine Schwartz, who worked closely with Kourtney and Travis to create a hand-cut oval-shaped diamond that weighs between 10 to 12 carats. The cost of the diamond is estimated to be anywhere from $500,000 to $1 million.
Kim Kardashian's Engagement Ring from Kanye West
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, although currently divorced, their engagement ring is still one of the most talked-about rings in Hollywood.
When they first got engaged in 2013, Kim wore a classic round cut 15 carat diamond—and it was a product of celebrity jewelry designer Lorraine Schwartz. The second engagement ring came in 2016 when they were married.
The emerald-cut diamond was even bigger this time around: 20 carats of diamonds! And while these rings are certainly pricey (Schwartz's pieces sell for up to $1 million), there are some less expensive options for those looking for something similar.
Jessica Simpson's Engagement Ring
If you love the idea of a multi-carat diamond ring, but you want something a little different than the traditional solitaire setting, then look no further than Jessica Simpson's engagement ring. The design was by celebrity jeweler Neil Lane and featured a 5-carat round diamond at its center.
Two smaller round diamonds surround this stone on either side of it—the one on the left is estimated to be 1 carat and the one on the right about half that size—and are complemented by two magnificent red rubies at each corner. The gold setting has been shaped into a classic three-prong design that accentuates its beauty and value (estimated at $1.4 million).
Katherine Heigl's Engagement Ring
Katherine Heigl is well known for her roles in the television series Grey's Anatomy and Knocked Up. Ryan Ryan designed her engagement ring and featured a 3-carat pear-shaped diamond set in platinum with a micro pave halo setting. Some have described the engagement ring as "vintage-inspired" due to its large size and shape, which may be found on older engagement rings. Contradicting shapes
The half of the band that comes from Josh Kelley's (Heigl’s husband) mother's engagement ring has more diamonds than most parts of the band, but it is still not quite as expensive as the diamond itself. The estimated price of this ring when Josh Kelley first purchased it in 2005 was $65,000
The engagement ring is one of the most special pieces of jewelry a person can own. Celebrities are no exception to this rule, and their engagement rings have been making headlines for years.
