Some of the most expensive celebrity engagement rings
Celebrities are known to pull out all the stops when it comes to giving expensive gifts to their loved ones, which is why they tend to buy some of the most expensive engagement rings. Some of the most expensive engagement rings of recent times have all been bought by famous people, whether its actors, musicians or athletes.
To put things in perspective, the average cost of an engagement ring in the U.S. goes for approximately $5.5k USD. That is nowhere near as close to what some of the celebrities mentioned in this article choose to gift their fiancés. Famous jewelry designers have been able to sell diamonds to celebrities that are worth millions of dollars.
Let’s take a look at some of the most expensive celebrity engagement rings ever:
Jennifer Lopez (1.2 million dollar engagement ring). Although it not seem like much when compared to the other celebrity engagement rings mentioned in this article, at the time, when Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez where a couple that everyone envied, a 1.2 million dollar engagement ring was something rarely heard of. Ben Affleck gave JLO a now legendary 6.1 carat diamond ring. Although their relationship was not going to last much, they made history by being one of the most popular celebrity couples that started the ongoing trend of expensive engagement rings.
Paris Hilton (4.7 million dollar engagement ring). Paris Hilton is one celebrity more famous for her lifestyle and off screen antics than her talents. The media loves following her in whatever she does, so it was expected for people to pay attention when she received her famous engagement ring. Paris Latsis gave Hilton a huge engagement ring with a 24 carat diamond which is believed to be priced at 4.7 million dollars. The pricy ring did nothing to help the ill-fated relationship, since the couple broke off just a few months after being engaged.
Kim Kardashian (5 million dollar engagement ring). Kim Kardashian should actually be mentioned twice for her history with pricy engagement rings. When she engaged to Kris Humphries, she received a 2 million dollar ring. Kanye West was determined that no one was going to outdo him. Kanye presented Kim a 15-carat Lorraine Schwartz ring that made her completely forget about her previous multi-million dollar ring. Famous jewelry designer Mark Keeney believes that the engagement ring Kim received is firmly valued in the $4 to 5 million range. Let’s see someone trying to top that!
