How much is too much?
Kate Middleton’s Engagement Ring from Prince William
Likely the most famous engagement ring in all the land, or at least in Europe –Prince William proposed to Kate with an 18 carat sapphire diamond, which former belonged to the late Princess Diana. Not very many men have come close to a rock this size, although Brad Pitt came feverishly close.
Mila Kunis’ Engagement Ring from Ashton Kutcher
In February 2014, Ashton Kutcher popped the question to former That 70’s Show co-star Mila Kunis. Ashton produced a 5 carat $260,000 round cut solitaire diamond on a platinum band. A modern take on a classic look, and still subtle enough to not be gaudy. (Or Gotti, either).
Jennifer Anniston’s Engagement Ring from Justin Theroux
Weighing in at 8 carat and carrying a cost of approximately $500,000, this chunky emerald cut solitaire ring is as monstrous as it is elaborate. Absolutely riveting, but perhaps too much size for the squeamish.
Behati Prinsloo’s Engagement Ring from Adam Levine
The happy couple married in July of this year, however one year prior, Adam presented Behati with a classically vintage 1930’s-era round cut diamond engagement ring.

Jennifer Garner’s Engagement Ring from Ben Affleck
Although Ben Affleck may be the worst actor to play Batman since Val Kilmer, that didn’t stop Jennifer Garner for marrying him. Ben proposed to Jennifer with an ornate 4.5 carat diamond. Bruce Wayne could have done better.
Angelina Jolie’s Engagement Ring from Brad Pitt
After holding out for 7 years, the 7 Years in Tibet star Brad Pitt finally proposed to Angelina and made every minute worthwhile by offering her a ring fit for royalty; a 16 carat custom designed diamond ring by Robert Procop. Wow.

Halle Berry’s Engagement Ring from Olivier Martinez
Resting on a rustic, hand-forged yellow gold band, Halle’s 4 carat knock-out ring is as gorgeous as it is creatively unique. According to media reports, the ring also possesses inscriptions only its wearer will understand. Cute!

Paris Hilton’s (Failed) Engagement Ring from Paris Latsis
We can’t hold back on this one. When the Paris’ got engaged and Paris Hilton started walking around with this nasty glacier on her bony little hands, we learned that it weighed in at 24 carats. It looked much like a ring pop.
Catherine Zeta Jones’ Engagement Ring from Michael Douglas
When Michael Douglas proposed to Catherine he wooed her with a 10 carat marquis rock by Fred Leighton (so much for it being special, Christina Millian). The rock was so big that Catherine joked about her bicep growing due to the weight of it.
