Engagement rings tend to be pricey regardless of who you are, but when it comes to the rich and famous, they can spend a fortune on just about anything. You'd instantly recognize most of these faces, but it'll be mind-boggling once you see the bling they rock. If you can't wait any longer to uncover these stars and their outrageously pricey gems, keep scrolling- and just wait until you see the most expensive one!
Nicolas Cage- Estimated Value $5,000+
This may be Nicolas Cage's fifth marriage, but for Riko Shibata, whose in her late twenties, this is her first. Despite the 30-year age gap, they went straight to the altar. After the couple met in 2020, they decided to elope in 2021 in no other than the infamous city of Las Vegas. Not much is known about Riko's engagement band, but it appears to be very delicate and unpretentious.
You'd assume because of Nicolas Cage's fame, he would buy Riko something a bit more fancy and expensive, but this couple kept it relatively low-key. Unlike many others on this list.
Emma Stone- Estimated Value $5,000-$7,000
Emma Stone is known for being laid-back and goofy, and her engagement ring couldn't be more fitting. When it came to the engagement ring she received from Dave McCary in 2019, they didn't choose something traditional. It's a unique, delicate band with one big pearl! Of course, diamonds are a girl's best friend, so you can't forget all the small diamonds along the ring band. They clearly seem ecstatic with the ring and each other.
This ring may not appear that expensive because of how dainty it is, but it can still run between $5,000 and $7,000. Although considering Emma Stone's success, we would've thought she'd go for something pricier.
Zoë Kravitz- Estimated Value $36,000
Zoë Kravitz and Karl Glusman had been dating for less than three years when Karl decided to pop the big question. They got engaged in their own home, sitting on their couch in sweatpants. Though the setting was comfortable and intimate, the ring Zoë received was a statement. It was an antique piece from a jeweler on Instagram that she had been eyeing for a while, believed to be worth around $36,000.
Though the couple didn't last very long, divorcing in 2021. We can only wonder if she kept the ring; it's too gorgeous not to wear.
Hilary Duff- Estimated Value $80,000
Hillary Duff may have been an icon on Disney Channel as a teen, but now, in her real life, it may have felt like Disney dreams were hard to come by. She was married and had a kid with a former hockey player, but they divorced. Only a year later, her Disney dream seemed possible again. She met Matthew Koma, and they hit it off quickly, getting hitched in 2019.
Her ring is reported to be around 4 carats and can go from $70,000-$100,000. In her last marriage, she sported a million-dollar ring, so it's surprising that she's wearing something worth hundreds of thousands of dollars less this time.
Mary-Kate Olsen- Estimated Value $81,250
Mary-Kate Olsen's engagement ring is absolutely massive and extraordinary. It was from Olivier Sarkozy, a French banker who proposed in 2014. He bought the ring from an auction for over $80,000, which is a hefty amount to pay for a single piece of jewelry. The ring consisted of a huge center stone, sixteen sapphires, white diamonds, and golden petals. It seemed all too perfect for the couple, given their 17-year age gap.
However, Mary-Kate filed for divorce in 2020, so ultimately there's no knowing whether she still has that gorgeous vintage gem. But if you think $81,250 is a lot of money, you'll be surprised what other celebs have spent.
Ariana Grande- Estimated Value $93,000
Today Ariana Grande has received seven different engagement proposals, but this one in particular held some weight for her fans. Her famous relationship with Pete Davidson took people by surprise, and fans were even more shocked and excited when they got engaged. Pete bought a funky yet timeless ring that was a pear-shaped diamond paired with a pearl. It is truly a unique ring not many have seen, and it only cost him $93,000.
However, it's been reported that since their engagement was called off, Ariana returned the ring back to Pete. Maybe he can gift it to his next girlfriend?
Camilla Parker-Bowles- Estimated Value $100,000
It can't get more controversial than this. Prince Charles definitely had a busy love life, being married to Princess Diana while secretly seeing his ex-girlfriend Camilla throughout their marriage. So, of course, years later, Camilla and Charles found a way back to each other. This time in a proper engagement in 2005! Plus, the engagement ring wasn't just something he picked out from a catalogue as he did with Diana.
The engagement ring is said to have been given to Charles by the Queen herself. An art-deco-inspired ring with diamonds galore and a $100,000 price tag. But for being royalty, you might expect a jewel with a much higher price tag like some other celebs on this list.
Alison Brie- Estimated Value $100,000
The actress Alison Brie and actor Dave Franco began dating in 2012, and only three years later, Dave proposed. They've been going strong now for over a decade, and Alison gets to sport a gorgeous stunner on her finger. It's not a typical engagement ring, with a huge round-cut diamond and a rose-gold ring. Considering they're both A-listers with hefty net worths, the $100,000 price tag was easy and breezy.
Maybe for their next anniversary, they'll renew their vows, and Dave will buy a new ring that makes a dent in his $10 million net worth.
Jourdan Dunn- Estimated Value $100,000
Jourdan Dunn is known for being a British model who was the first black model to walk a Prada show in years. But in her personal life, she's married to her longtime partner and rapper, Dion Hamilton. They announced their engagement in 2020 with an Instagram picture showing her bling off. A gorgeous oval-shaped diamond surrounded by smaller diamonds, almost making a flower shape. It's reported to be worth around $100,000 and counting.
Surprisingly, this couple spent the same on a ring as King Charles of England; he may need to up his budget.
Lea Michele- Estimated Value $100,000-$150,000
Once a star on Glee, Lea Michele met her now-husband at her best friend's wedding. Who knew that moment would turn into love at first sight? They've been together ever since, including their big engagement in 2018. Zandy Reich proposed to Lea with a stunning rectangular-shaped four-carat diamond! It's believed to have cost him around $100,000 to $150,000, a hefty price to pay for a ring that looks pretty common.
Though the ring seems pretty standard-looking at first glance, Lea seems ecstatic with it as she constantly flaunts it in photos on her social media. If you think this gem is huge, wait and see the type of ring Cardi B can't help but flaunt.
Kat Dennings- Estimated Value $125,000-$150,000
Like most celebrities these days, Kat Dennings made a special announcement on her Instagram. She debuted her relationship and engagement with Andrew W.K. by, of course, sharing a pic of her snazzy engagement ring. It's rather unique compared to most basic engagement rings, and if you have $150,000 to spend, then you could create something just like it. Though this amount of money could buy a car, this famous couple spent it all on a ring.
The ring is beautiful but if that's all you get with over $100,000, then just wait until you see the rings that cost millions.
Carrie Underwood- Estimated Value $150,000
Carrie Underwood has been married to professional ice hockey player Mike Fisher for quite some time now. In 2009, he proposed, and Carrie accepted. That year she not only had future vows to plan, but she also received a gorgeous yellow diamond engagement ring. A yellow ring isn't exactly the most fashionable, but with a 5-carat stone and 12 diamonds, who wouldn't accept this ring? Now Carrie casually walks around with $150,000 flaunted on her left hand.
It's pretty bold to have a colored diamond and incredibly pricey, but celebrities are no strangers to spending exorbitant amounts of money on jewelry most people could only dream of.
Priyanka Chopra- Estimated Value $200,000
Nick Jonas has been considered a heartthrob for most of his career, so when fans found out he was settling down, it was madness. He met Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra, and the rest was history. He proposed in 2018 with a ring from Tiffany & Co., which was apparently the exact place she wanted a ring from. Though the couple is iconic, the ring is relatively basic, featuring a thin band and a huge center diamond.
The ring doesn't look like it carries a price tag of $200,000, considering it's a common-looking engagement ring. But the sheer size of the diamond and iconic name brand gives it its insanely high price.
Miley Cyrus- Estimated Value $250,000
Miley Cyrus's relationship with Liam Hemsworth was highly publicized, and fans gushed over the power couple, wishing to have a love like theirs. Although they're not together today, their relationship lasted over a decade. When Liam proposed to Miley back in 2012, they were only 22 and 19. The engagement ring was a diamond set on an 18K gold band, costing around $250,000. Now how on earth does a 22-year-old afford that?
Despite Liam dropping hundreds of thousands of dollars on the ring, Miley admitted it wasn't her style at all. That's surprisingly expensive for something she didn't even like!
Princess Diana- Estimated Value $400,000
Princess Diana was engaged at the young age of 19 to then, Prince Charles, who was 32. The age gap was already strange, but an even more surprising fact was that Diana's engagement ring was chosen from a catalogue which wasn't exactly a royal thing to do. It features a 12-carat Ceylon sapphire surrounded by diamonds which is incredibly unique. For almost half a million dollars, this iconic sapphire ring became symbolic of Princess Diana. But how many other rings on this list have become just as infamous?
Diana passed it down to Prince William, and now his wife, Kate Middleton, sports the ginormous sapphire. That's definitely an investment that will be passed down for generations.
Lady Gaga- Estimated Value $400,000
Lady Gaga is known for being a bold character, constantly pushing barriers, so this engagement ring fit her perfectly and made total sense. In 2015, Taylor Kinney proposed to Lady Gaga on Valentine's Day with a gigantic diamond rock shaped like a heart. It's far from a traditional engagement ring, and this never before seen ring only cost him around $400,000! Considering his net worth is believed to be $8 million, that's quite a lump sum to spend.
This has to be one of the most special rings we've seen so far. Gaga's and Kinney's initials were even melded onto the band. Unfortunately, Gaga apparently gave it back to Taylor when they broke up.
Scarlett Johansson- Estimated Value $450,000
Scarlett Johansson is no stranger to Hollywood, and most people would instantly recognize her name and face. Although she met SNL writer Colin Jost in 2006, she didn't give him a chance until ten years later! In 2019, Colin proposed to Scarlett with quite a unique ring costing him over $450,000. Clearly, there are no strict rules on what makes a good engagement ring, but for what this one costs, you'd think it would be less strange.
Her ring has an 11-carat light brown, elongated oval diamond on a black ceramic band. It's not the prettiest ring out there, but it's rare and different from most celebrities' engagement rings.
Sarah Jessica Parker- Estimated Value $400,000-$600,000
Sarah Jessica Parker might not be that different from her iconic character Carrie in Sex and the City. Carrie is obsessed with fashion and has expensive taste, and Sarah's engagement ring and style are evidence of that. Clearly, her fellow actor husband, Matthew Broderick, also took some inspiration from Carrie because the engagement ring he bought is over the top, ringing in at upwards of $600,000. A lavish price to pay for a single ring!
Though the two married in the 1990s, the iconic five-carat diamond set on a gold band is ageless. It's quite a large diamond that only those who live a luxurious lifestyle could pull off.
Cardi B- Estimated Value $500,000
Another absolutely shocking ring that most people only see in movies belongs to rapper Cardi B. Her hubby, Offset, gifted her with this insane pear-shaped 8-carat center diamond ring surrounded by pink and white diamonds back in 2019. What a way to make an impression for an engagement! It's believed to have cost around half a million dollars. This ring is definitely winning at most unique and looks like it cost way more than $500,000.
If this is the ring she receives for an engagement, we can't even imagine birthdays or holidays.
Gwen Stefani- Estimated Value $500,000
It's never too late for love, and this couple is evidence of that. They may seem like an unusual couple, but country singer Blake Shelton and pop-rock queen Gwen Stefani have been inseparable ever since they met. This is Blake's third marriage and Gwen's second; this time around, they're trying to do it right. Gwen accepted Blake's proposal in 2020 and now gets to show off a very expensive engagement ring.
It may look like a traditional engagement ring with a simple band and a huge square diamond. But don't be fooled; this ring is anything but simple! It costs half a million dollars, possibly more.
Hailey Bieber- Estimated Value $500,000
Hailey Bieber, previously known as Hailey Baldwin, is famously known for being married to Justin Bieber. The two may have only been 21 and 24 when they were engaged, but they had already endured great success. In 2018, Justin proposed with an eighteen-carat gold band rocking a ten-carat diamond worth over half a million dollars. Considering how fancy and huge the diamond looks on Hailey's hand, it's surprising the ring didn't cost as much as Katy Perry's.
This ring cost so much it could've paid full university tuition for several students or been used to purchase a few cars or homes. But just one ring is enough for celebs like these with disposable income.
Sofia Vergara- Estimated Value $500,000
Sofia Vergara may be a star on the hit show Modern Family, but she is also the star of Joe Manganiello's life. In 2014, Joe decided to propose on Christmas day with a vintage-style platinum engagement ring with a gigantic diamond, almost as big as Sofia's personality. It's classy and gorgeous but considering Joe's net worth is reported to be around $40 million, it's a surprise the ring wasn't even bigger.
You can spot Sofia's diamond from across the room. It's a chic ring, but for half a million dollars, you might've expected it to be more unique and tailored to her.
Jennifer Aniston- Estimated Value $500,000
Jennifer Aniston married Hollywood icon Brad Pitt before getting dumped for Angelina Jolie, but her love life didn't stop there. She dated Justin Theroux, and they got engaged in 2012. Her engagement ring was a gold band with a gigantic diamond that looked too heavy for her finger. He reportedly spent half a million dollars, a shocking price for a single jewelry piece. However, they broke up, so the ring will live in infamy.
It's alarming to think someone can spend that much money on a ring; however, Jen is worth around $300 million today, so that must be silly spending money for her.
Amal Clooney- Estimated Value $600,000-$750,000
George Clooney is an iconic stud of Hollywood, and his wife, Amal Clooney, is even more gorgeous, making them an untouchable power couple. The two got engaged almost a decade ago, in 2014, and he presented her with a seven-carat, emerald-shaped diamond ring. Amal is a lawyer, so it's probably not very typical for her colleagues to casually see someone walking around with a ring worth almost a million dollars.
If this is what a $600,000 ring looks like, then wait until you see how huge the diamond on a ring worth over a million dollars is.
Angelina Jolie- Estimated Value $500,000-$1 Million
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are one of the most recognizable A-list couples in Hollywood, and though they divorced after over a decade together, there's one thing we can't forget. When they got engaged in 2012, Brad popped the question with a flashy sixteen-carat engagement ring. The ring is estimated to have cost up to 1 million dollars which is an unfathomable price to spend on an item, especially considering they are such avid activists for various charities.
That type of money most people never see in their lives. It could build schools; instead, it was spent on a ring that is not even worn anymore because the two split up. But this isn't the only couple this happened with.
Jackie Kennedy- Estimated Value $1 Million
One of the most gorgeous and unique engagement rings ever belonged to Jackie Kennedy. John F. Kennedy first proposed in 1953, and Jackie was over the moon. The ring consists of square-cut diamonds, marquise diamonds, and a stunning emerald. This isn't a typical engagement ring at all but what's so surprising is how much it's worth. A first lady doesn't usually sport a flashy ring worth around $1 million, but she did.
Most people want their president and first lady to be relatable and humble. But if the people of America knew how much her engagement ring was really worth, they'd be appalled.
Catherine Zeta Jones- Estimated Value $1 Million
When the public first discovered the relationship between Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas, no one believed they would last. Their 25-year age gap is enough to convince most they wouldn't make it. But shockingly enough, they're going strong to this day, 22 years later. So what could be more surprising than that? Catherine's vintage engagement ring fit with a massive 10-carat diamond that reportedly cost Michael a whopping 1 million dollars.
Is it really necessary for anyone to own a ring so valuable that it's worth more than what most people would make their entire lives?
Elizabeth Taylor- Estimated Value $1 Million
Elizabeth Taylor was known for her beauty and acting throughout the 1950s, but in the 1960s, she became iconic for something much different. Richard Burton and her married, and he gifted her the most extravagant ring ever. It was said to be the first million-dollar diamond sold in 1969. The diamond was so massive it was nearly larger than her own eye, yet she wore this shocking jewelry piece everywhere.
Elizabeth had to be accompanied by armed security whenever she wore the insane diamond ring of about 33 carats because of the likelihood she would be attacked and robbed, something Mariah Carey had to do also.
Kate Hudson- Estimated Value $1 Million
Kate Hudson was lucky enough to receive two engagement rings, but the one that really caught people's attention was this show-stopper. It appears to be a champagne-colored diamond that's about 10-12 carats. These diamonds are extremely expensive and rare and usually sell for $1 million. It was gifted to her by Danny Fujikawa when he proposed in 2021. However, what's so surprising is that Danny is a musician believed to have a net worth of $2 million.
How on earth could he afford an engagement ring worth half of his net worth? The question remains, especially when you see the ring Enrique Iglesias gave to his girlfriend.
Gabrielle Union- Estimated Value $1 Million
Gabrielle Union, a famous actress, and Dwayne Wade, an NBA player, might be one of Hollywood's biggest power couples. They got married in 2014, and Dwayne didn't hold back. He proposed with a sunny 8.5-carat diamond ring that's rumored to cost around 1 million dollars. But to many fans' surprise, they wouldn't assume this ring is that expensive. It seems to be a classic-style ring, but the size is actually pretty rare.
The only people who can quickly drop a million dollars on a ring would have to be famous actors and professional athletes in the limelight. A million dollars is an insane amount of money, and some celebs have spent more!
Caroline Wozniacki- Estimated Value $1 Million
How can a tennis player flaunt a ring worth a minimum of one million dollars? Well, Caroline Wozniacki is a professional tennis player who was once considered the sixth-highest-paid female athlete in the world. She married David Lee, an NBA player and owner of a high-end jewelry store, in 2019. Together they are overflowing with money. So David proposed with no other than an 8.88-carat diamond ring with a price tag of approximately 1 million dollars.
It's a gorgeous and shiny ring, but who could ever imagine it's worth a million dollars, especially from low-key stars like this?
Nicki Minaj- Estimated Value $1.1 Million
The rapper Nicki Minaj had no issue flaunting her jewels all over her social media; she was proud of the dazzling rock from her former love, Meek Mill. Although they are broken up today, their relationship, and more importantly, the engagement ring, was the talk of the town. Most would be astonished to learn the actual price of this. At first, it appears to be costume jewelry, but this ring is absolutely insane, costing over 1 million dollars.
It appears to be a 12-15 carat ring with a heart-shaped yellow diamond surrounded by a double halo of white diamonds, including white gold and even more diamonds!
Victoria Beckham- Estimated Value $1.2 Million
These A-list stars are one of the most iconic duos in Hollywood. So, of course, the engagement ring David Beckham gave Victoria has to be just as iconic. In fact, he has gifted her with around 15 engagement rings throughout their marriage as a token of his love. So which ring takes the cake? You'll be surprised to discover that it may look like an ordinary ring, but it's worth more than you'll probably ever make.
This impressive bling is worth over one million dollars, but if she wanted to change it up, she could wear a different ring for over two weeks straight.
Ciara- Estimated Value $2 Million
R&B singer Ciara was engaged to NFL player Russell Wilson in 2015, and he didn't disappoint when it came to the ring. This oddly shaped ring is surprisingly one of the most expensive engagement rings we've seen. It's sixteen carats with pear and trapezoid-shaped diamonds, something very unique. He paid a whopping $2 million for this ring as a token of his love and commitment to Ciara, and they are still going strong.
It's surprising that Ciara can go around wearing that without the fear of someone snatching it right off her hand!
Paris Hilton- Estimated Value $2 Million
Paris Hilton has actually been engaged a handful of times, but this time, in particular, it was with Chris Zylka. He didn't play around when it came to the ring and presented Paris with a 20-carat pear-shaped diamond engagement ring on a ski trip they took together in 2018. You would definitely have to walk around with a bodyguard while wearing this enormous rock because it costs just a cool 2 million dollars.
Unfortunately, they never made it down the aisle, but at least she got to sport that surprisingly gorgeous and fancy ring for a while.
Serena Williams- Estimated Value $3 Million
Serena Williams is one of the wealthiest athletes out there. So when Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit, proposed in 2016, there were only high hopes for how costly the ring would be. The gorgeous and uniquely shaped ring consists of 12 carats and costs around $3 million. Although considering their combined net worth is over 300 million dollars, you might expect a ring flashier and more expensive! Nevertheless, it's definitely a stunner.
It might be surprising that this ring isn't pricier considering how wealthy these two are, but not most people don't have $3 million to casually spend on a ring in the first place, so it's still impressive.
Katy Perry- Estimated Value $5 Million
Orlando Bloom wanted to pull out all the stops for his fiance, Katy Perry. So when he proposed in 2019, it was with a magnificent and ginormous ring that no girl could turn down. The ring has clusters of white diamonds and a four-carat pink diamond in the center in the shape of a flower. Although this ring is truly one-of-a-kind, you'd never believe just how expensive it was.
Experts estimated this stunner cost Orlando approximately $5 million, a price only those who genuinely are a part of the 1% could even think of spending on jewelry.
Anna Kournikova- Estimated Value $7.4 Million
Professional tennis player, Anna Kournikova has been dating Enrique Iglesias for around two decades yet they never actually got married. Though it is rumored the huge bling she rocks is an engagement ring and it's a pretty valuable one! Her unique yellow diamond ring is said to be worth around $7.4 million. It's not exactly the prettiest ring ever so to think it's worth the same as multiple houses is insane.
You may think $7.4 million is an over the top price to pay for a single ring but it doesn't even stop here. Keep reading to find out the final and most expensive engagement ring ever.
Jennifer Lopez- Estimated Value $8 Million
Jennifer Lopez has had a long on and off again relationship with Ben Affleck. He proposed to her once before in the early 2000s with a ring that apparently cost over $1 million, but this time around, they're doing things a little differently. Ben proposed with an incredibly rare 8.5 carats natural green diamond ring. Most people wouldn't think green would make a good engagement ring, but to much surprise, it's stunning even though the price is shocking.
Some reports have alleged that the ring will likely cost around $8 million. Ben Affleck didn't play around this time and really chose a ring you'd never expect to cost as much as it did.
Mariah Carey- Estimated Value $10 Million
Mariah Carey is known for being a diva, so this insanely extravagant and dramatic ring is only fitting for the queen of pop. The most expensive ring on this list sits at a whopping 10 million dollars, which is hard to even wrap your head around. In 2016, James Packer, a businessman and billionaire proposed to Mariah with this 35-carat ring. Yet, they never even made it down the aisle.
Could you believe someone actually has a spare 10 million dollars to spend on a single ring? It's mind-boggling, but the real question is, does Mariah still have it after the breakup?
