Celebrity marriages may not always be rock solid, but the rocks that these celeb women have been gifted with sure do make up in style what many marriages may lack in substance. Check out some of these over-the-top engagement rings and you'll see what we mean.
Here are 15 over-the-top celebrity engagement rings.
Angelina Jolie has come a long way from the dark days of wearing a vile of Billy Bob Thorton's blood around her neck. Today, she sports an emerald-cut stunner from Brad Pitt with an estimated value of $1 mil.
Kris Humphries spent an estimated $2 million on Kim Kardashian's ring. With such a short-lived marriage, we wonder if it was worth almost $1 million per month they were actually married!
While Khloe Kardashian's 12.5 karat $850,000 ring from Lamar Odom is pretty impressive, we wonder if the reality TV star felt slighted that her ring didn't top the one given to her sis.
Apparently, NBA players aren't the only ones who know bling. Just check out this $1 million offering from David Beckham to wife Victoria. When you marry Posh Spice, you have to know what you're getting into...
Jennifer Lopez actually could have made this list a few times, but her most impressive - and expensive- ring remains the $1 million 8.5 karat beauty from now-ex husband Marc Anthony.
Ben Affleck is no stranger to buying expensive rings. In fact, he bought one for Jennifer Lopez, too. His most recent diamond purchase was a 4.5 karat Harry Winston Diamond. Here's our question though- was it worth as much as J. Lo's $1.25 million pink diamond?
Seal sealed the deal with model Heidi Klum by buying her a unique yellow diamond engagement ring. The 10 karat ring cost an estimated $1.5 mil.
Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise have made headlines many times during their whirlwind courtship, and now are on the front page due to their split. We wonder if Katie will get to keep the ring, which is a 5 karat, $1.5 million dollar beauty that Cruise allegedly bought after the couple went on their first date.
Mariah Carey's engagement ring stands out as one of the most expensive in, well, just about any crowd. Nick Cannon spent an estimated $2.5 million on the 17-karat ring complete with 54 diamonds.
Donald Trump has clearly traded up on the ring purchases. While Marla Maples got only a $250,000 7.5 karat Harry Winston for marrying the mogul. But his new wife Melania was gifted with a 12 karat Harry Winston which some estimates suggest may have cost as much as $3 million. About time Donald figured out how to buy a real ring!
The Paris (Hilton) and Paris (Latsis) alliance in 2005 didn't even last as long as Hilton's music career, so you know it was really short! Still, Latsis did manage to find time to splurge on a 20 karat ring with an estimated cost of over $4 million.
Beyoncé waited awhile for the proposal from Jay-Z, but we think it was worth waiting for... especially since it came with this 18 karat ring that might have set Jay-Z back as much as $5 mil.
Catherine Zeta Jones
Michael Douglas makes the list of generous celebrity spouses with the $2 million 10 karat antique marquis cut ring he bought for his beloved.
Elizabeth Taylor was sporting her famous Krupp diamond engagement ring from Richard Burton well before big engagement rings began to grace the pages of every tabloid. Burton didn't do so badly in the engagement ring department later in life either, as husband Michael Todd also gave her a 30 karat stone.
Everything about Paul McCartney and Heather Mills' relationship was expensive, from the lavish wedding to the bitter divorce. Of course, the ring was over-the-top too, and we're hoping that the rumors that she flung it into the bushes outside their hotel during a fight aren't true! Like the other beauties on here, it's just too beautiful of a stone!
