Here at Pastel Dress Party, we know how addicting celebrity gossip can be. What girl doesn't spend time criticizing and admiring everything about them- from their outfits to their relationships?! Keep on scrolling to take a look at the sparkling, ever-so-glamourous, and extremely expensive rings that grace the fingers of your favorite celebs! Whether engaged 40 years ago or last month, these rings will always stand out!
This girl does it all! American actress, Filmmaker and Humanitarian, Angelina Jolie, got engaged to Hollywood hunk, Brad Pitt, back in 2012. Completey customized, the ring has a centrally placed diamond on a band of yellow gold estimated between $250,000-500,000 dollars. The duo tied the knot last August 2014 at a secret and quaint ceremony at Château Miraval Vineyard in the South of France.
Still planning the wedding, Magic Mike star Joe Mananiello, surprised his unsuspecting girlfriend at the time, Sofia Vergara, with a white gold rounded-off square engagement ring on a diamond band- appearing to be 4/5-carats estimated at a whopping $500,000. Wow! Lucky Sofia.
The much loved blonde bombshell Blake Lively, or as some of you may know her as Serena van der Woodsen from Gossip Girl, got married back in 2012 to Ryan Reynolds. He must know that diamonds really are a girls best friend, surprising Lively with an oval cut pink diamond ring centrally placed on a braided diamond band. Roughly 12-carats, her engagement ring was estimated at $2 million dollars.
Reality TV star, socialite and camera-loving celebrity Kim Kardashian, married rapper/songwriter/designer Kanye West, last May. The square cut, high clarity diamond with a simple band, is estimated between $6-8 million. For scale we've scrolled into the depths of Kanye's Instagram to find this photo of North West holding the rock. Must be nice to be you, Kimmy!
Olivia Palermo, married her boyfriend of 7 years, Johannes Huebl, last June 2014. Announcing their engagement via Instagram while on the beaches of St. Barts, the engagement ring consists of an emerald-cut three-stone canary (yellow) diamond on a simple band, with a vintage feel. How chic and stunning for the devoted fashionista.
Last but definitely not least, the engagement ring of the late Princess Diana. Given to her in February of 1981, the ring consists of 14 solitaire diamonds surrounding a 12-carat oval blue sapphire set in 18-carat white gold. This authentic and unique ring now graces the hand of Princess Kate Middleton, spouse of Prince William as of 2011.
We've listed just a few of the most glamourous & iconic rings to date, but not necessarily the most expensive. It's true what they say, the more you read up on engagement rings & diamonds, the more your perception is skewed as to what 'pricey' actually means. A $10,000 ring seems like pocket change when compared to Kim K's $8 million dollar rock. Reality check please! What's your fave celebrity ring?
