Beyonce and Jay Z

In 2008, Jay Z proposed to Beyonce Knowles with an exquisite 18 carat emerald cut diamond from fine jewelry designer Lorraine Schwartz. The dazzling solitaire coupled with a classic platinum band has certainly become one of the most recognized modern celebrity engagement rings.

Princess Diana and Prince Charles

Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but the star of one of the most famous engagement rings of all time is a 12 carat blue sapphire. Given to Diana Spencer by Prince Charles of Wales in 1981, the beautiful ring is one of the most unique and awe inspiring jewels ever worn. The large Ceylon sapphire gemstone is set in 18-karate white gold, surrounded by a halo of 14 diamonds. It now rests on the hand of another British royal. It was inherited by Diana’s son Prince William, who used it to propose to his wife Catherine Middleton. 

Elizabeth Taylor and Mike Todd 

Elizabeth Taylor is well known for her enormous collection of world renowned gemstones including several pieces from the Russian crown jewels. Though her twice husband Burt Reynolds gifted some of her most stunning diamonds and treasures, her most famous engagement ring was given to her by ex-husband Mike Todd. He proposed to Taylor in 1957 with a 29.4 carat emerald cut Cartier diamond. In the same year, she also arrived at the Academy Awards with another one of Todd’s luxurious presents, a Cartier diamond encrusted tiara. 

Mariah Carey and James Packer 

Mariah Carey may not have had a long-lasting engagement with Australian billionaire James Packer, but she can still be seen walking the red carpets with the incredible 35 carat diamond ring he proposed with. The $10 million flawless diamond is one of the most expensive engagement rings in history.  

Grace Kelley and Prince Rainier III of Monaco

The story of Grace Kelley and Prince Rainier III of Monaco is right out of a fairy tale. Kelley was a 1950’s Hollywood movie star who met the Prince of Monaco when she was stranded on a photo shoot gone soar for many days. During her stay in the palace, they developed a friendship and remained in contact afterwards. In 1955, he proposed to Grace Kelley with a platinum set 10.47 carat emerald cut Cartier diamond ring. Her wedding photos proved that her incredible ring was only the beginning, as she quickly showed off Rainier’s next gift – a Cartier diamond and ruby cabochon tiara and a 58 carat diamond necklace.
