Most of us know how much engagement rings can take out of the bank account. But for some celebrities, proposing can cost more than a NYC condo! Here are some of the most expensive celebrity rings over the years.
30. Drew Barrymore: $80,000
Drew Barrymore has had quite a remarkable career, starting from starring in a dog commercial at eleven months old. And apparently, her former-fiancé Will Kopelman knew just the right ring to get for such a successful star.
In early 2011, the Charlie's Angels actress began dating her now ex-husband Will Kopelman, who she was married to for four years before officially filing for divorce in 2016. According to Vogue, Drew Barrymore's engagement ring cost an estimated $80,000.
29. Mary Kate Olsen: $81,000
Like Drew Barrymore, the younger half of the Olsen twins started out her career as an infant on ABC's Full House. Fast forward thirty-three years later in 2014: this Olsen twin is a successful fashion designer and businesswoman - engaged to Olivier Sarkozy.
Sarkozy proposed with an antique Cartier ring with a 4-carat diamond, which is surrounded by 16 sapphires. The two were engaged in February 2014, over a year and a half before their wedding in 2015. Vogue reports the price of the ring was about $81,000.
28. Miranda Kerr: $85,000
It probably comes as no surprise to see a former Victoria's Secret Angel on this list. And what makes it even less surprising is that she's married to the co-founder of Snap Inc., tech-billionaire Evan Spiegel, who's worth $4 billion. Apparently, he gave her quite a ring on the day he proposed.
The round, 3-carat, brilliant-cut diamond ring was estimated to cost Spiegel around $85,000, according to Vogue. He proposed to Kerr in July 2016, and the couple married nearly a year later. They have two children together, a girl and a boy, and Kerr has an older child from her previous relationship with Orlando Bloom.
27. Emily Ratajkowski: $90,000
The model and actress rose to fame when she appeared in music videos such as Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines and Maroon 5's Love Somebody. In 2018, Ratajkowski announced her marriage to actor and producer Sebastian Bear-McClard, whom she had been dating for several weeks.
One interesting fact about Ratajkowski's engagement ring is that she actually designed it herself. The gorgeous ring has two diamonds - one shaped like a pear, the other square - and a gold band. Vogue estimates the ring's worth to be approximately $90,000.
26. Lily Collins: $100,000
Another child star on the list is none other than Lily Collins. She began acting at two years old and had a career breakthrough when she starred in The Blind Side in 2009. Despite her successful career, she kept her love life private until her engagement to film director and writer Charlie McDowell in 2018.
The ring with the rose-cut, bezel-set diamond was given to the Emily in Paris star by her then-fiancé a little over a year before they were officially married in September 2021. Vogue reports that the value of Collins' ring is an estimated $100,000.
25. Ariana Grande: $100,000
The 28-year-old singer has built quite an impressive resumé for herself. Her career began starring as Cat Valentine on Nickelodeon's Victorious in 2008. Several accolades (including two Grammys and 26 Guinness World Records) later, she became engaged to Pete Davidson in 2018.
Although their engagement lasted only a few months, the ring that Grande was given took approximately $100,000 out of Davidson's bank account, a number estimated by Vogue. The ring contained a three-carat, pear-shaped diamond from jeweler Greg Yuna.
24. Jessica Biel: $130,000
Award-winning actress and executive producer Jessica Biel built quite a name for herself in Hollywood before she met her now-husband Justin Timberlake. The two started dating in 2007, before Timberlake proposed to her in December 2011 after nearly four years of dating.
Her then-fiancé co-designed Biel's engagement ring, which contains a 6-carat diamond. The diamond on the ring is surrounded by aquamarine stones set in blackened platinum and, according to Vogue, cost Timberlake a whopping $130,000. The couple married in October 2012.
23. Anne Hathaway: $150,000
Of course, the recipient of several accolades would be on this list. Anne Hathaway, who has starred in several award-winning films over the past couple of decades, met Adam Shulman through a mutual friend in 2008. The two began dating before Shulman proposed in January 2012.
Vogue reports the engagement ring is worth around $150,000 and has a 6-carat emerald-cut diamond from Kwiat. The couple married in September 2012 and live in a $2.55 million apartment in the Upper West Side neighborhood of Manhattan. Together, they have two sons.
22. Heidi Klum: $150,000
Could this list possibly be complete without a former Victoria's Secret Angel? The 48-year-old model and businesswoman met her now ex-husband in a New York City hotel lobby. In 2004, not long after they began dating, Seal officially popped the question.
According to Vogue, Seal gave Klum a $150,000 ring with a 10-carat canary yellow center diamond, which was set in a gold band that consisted of pavé diamonds. The two were married for more than nine years before divorcing in 2014. Together, they co-parent four children.
21. Kate Hudson: $200,000
In early 2010, the award-winning actress began dating Matt Bellamy - a musician, and member of the English rock band Muse. After just over a year of dating, the couple decided to make it official, and Bellamy presented Kate Hudson with quite an impressive ring.
The engagement ring, which Bellamy gave Hudson in 2011, has a classic emerald-cut diamond with side baguettes. Vogue has reported that the diamond ring cost Bellamy around $200,000. The engagement was called off in 2014, but the two are reportedly on "good terms."
20. Natalie Portman: $200,000
Natalie Portman's impressive career won her several accolades, as well as the chance to meet the love of her life. Portman first met her husband, French dancer and choreographer Benjamin Millepied, on the set of Black Swan in 2009. The two began dating and became engaged shortly after.
An advocate for environmental causes, Portman opted for a unique ring design. The stunning ring is made of recycled platinum and small, conflict-free stones for the band. It has a 4-carat old-mine cut diamond and costs around $200,000, according to Vogue.
19. Princess Meghan Markle: $350,000
We weren't going to make a list of famous, expensive engagement rings without adding royalty to it, now were we? In May 2016, the Duchess of Sussex and former actress met Prince Harry on a blind date set up by a mutual friend, and the rest is history.
The ring Harry gave Meghan was perfect for her new royal status. It consisted of three special diamonds, two of which were from Princess Diana's personal collection, and the third mined in Botswana, a place that is special to the couple. Finance 101 reports the ring is worth around $350,000.
18. Kate Middleton: $390,000
Princess Meghan comes not far behind her sister-in-law, who married Prince Harry's older brother, Prince William. The two met as students at the University of St. Andrews when Kate caught William's eye at an on-campus charity fashion show in 2002. They reportedly began dating a year later.
As if her engagement to the Queen's grandson wasn't special enough, her engagement ring was quite literally one of a kind. It has an 18-carat oval sapphire diamond, surrounded by 14 diamonds, and belonged to Princess Diana. Vogue reports the estimated value of the ring is £300,000 (around $390,000).
17. Hailey Baldwin Bieber: $400,000
The model, media personality, and socialite was introduced to Justin Bieber back in 2009 by her father, actor Stephen Baldwin. After dating on and off since December 2015 the couple eventually decided to make things official, and became engaged in July 2018.
The ring had a six to ten-carat oval diamond and was designed by Solow & Co. The ring reportedly set the Love Yourself singer back $400,000, according to Finance 101. The couple wed in private and confirmed in November 2018 that they were officially married.
16. Reese Witherspoon: $450,00
Fans probably wouldn't be too surprised to see Reese Witherspoon on this list. The winner of numerous accolades, she is one of the highest-paid actresses in the world. In February 2010, she began dating talent agent Jim Toth. By the end of that year, it was reported that the two were engaged.
Reese Witherspoon's engagement ring is reportedly incredibly rare. It has a unique 4-carat Ashoka-cut diamond, set in a pavé diamond-accented band of platinum or white gold. According to Vogue, the special ring may have cost Jim Toth a whopping $450,000.
15. Lady Gaga: $500,000
Lady Gaga has become quite famous for her unique and sometimes luxurious fashion style. And her engagement ring is no different. The Poker Face singer's romance with Taylor Kinney began in 2011 after meeting on the set of her music video for You and I, according to E! Online.
The Vampire Diaries actor proposed to Lady Gaga on Valentine's Day in 2015, but the engagement was eventually called off a year later. The ring, which held a six-carat heart-shaped diamond, took $500,000 out of Kinney's wallet, according to estimates by Vogue.
14. Sofia Vergara: $500,000
Vergara's impressive career made her the highest-paid actress in American television from 2013 to 2020. Not only that, but it helped her meet her husband, Joe Manganiello. The two became engaged on Christmas Day of 2014, after dating for six months.
According to Vogue, Vergara's wedding ring held a seven-carat diamond with a micro-pavé halo. The luxurious ring was estimated to be worth $500,000. The Hollywood couple married in Palm Beach, Florida, in 2015, nearly a year after they became engaged.
13. Cardi B: $500,000
The 29-year-old rapper quickly rose to fame in the 2010s following the success of several hit singles. The media closely followed her career, as well as her on-and-off relationship with fellow rapper Offset. Although Offset publicly proposed to Cardi B in September 2017, the two had actually married in secret the month before.
Offset proposed to Cardi B with an eight-carat pear-shaped diamond that, according to Vogue, cost him half a million dollars. Together, the two artists have two children, a daughter born in 2018 and a son that was born in 2021. The family lives in a 22,000-square-foot mansion in Atlanta, Georgia.
12. Jennifer Aniston: $500,000
Jennifer Aniston certainly needs no introduction. She's one of the highest-paid actresses in the world and has repeatedly been named as one of the world's most beautiful women. The only surprise here may be that she didn't rank even higher on this list.
Although it was her marriage to Brad Pitt that had gained widespread media attention, the ring she received from Theroux makes Aniston #12 on this list. According to Vogue, the 8-carat radiant-cut diamond ring cost an estimated $500,000. Unfortunately, the couple separated in 2017.
11. Angelina Jolie: $500,000
"Brangelina" was one of Hollywood's most glamorous couples, and media attention seemed to surround them constantly. Jolie has said she fell in love with Pitt on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, and the two became engaged in April 2012. Their family grew to include six children, three of whom were adopted.
Does it surprise us that Pitt set aside $500,000 for the engagement ring he gave to Jolie in 2012? Not one bit! According to Vogue, the 16-carat ring was designed by Pitt, along with jeweler Robert Procop, over the course of a year. The couple was married in 2014 but eventually divorced in 2019.
10. Amal Clooney: $750,000
Amal Alamuddin and George Clooney's love story dates back to 2013 when the couple met at his Lake Como house through a mutual friend. The next year, the couple bought the Mill House on an island in the Thames River in England for around £10 million (about $1.35 million).
The luxurious ring Clooney gave to his then-girlfriend had a 7-carat diamond with an emerald cut. Vogue estimates the worth of the ring to be around $750,000. The two have been married since 2014 and welcomed fraternal twins three years after their wedding.
9. Gabrielle Union: $1 Million
Actress Gabrielle Union began dating basketball player Dwayne Wade in 2008, and the couple married six years later. Upon marrying the NBA star, Union also became a stepmother to his three children. The two spent their honeymoon in the Maldives and Tanzania.
According to estimates made by Vogue, Wade set aside $1,000,000 from the fortune he amassed during the course of his athletic career to buy Union's engagement pricey ring. The ring reportedly has an 8.5-carat cushion-cut diamond from a jeweler in Beverly Hills.
8. Demi Lovato: $1 Million
Demi Lovato was briefly engaged to actor Max Ehrich in 2020 after dating for four months. Although the pair had initially intended to keep their relationship a secret, an appearance Lovato accidentally made on Ehrich's Instagram Live made their romance public.
Ehrich popped the question in July 2020, and the couple's engagement was official. The ring he bought for the Skyscraper singer had an estimated 8-10 carat emerald-cut diamond set on a platinum or white gold band. Vogue estimates the piece of jewelry to be worth a whopping $1 million.
7. Kourtney Kardashian: $1 Million
For those who haven't been keeping up with this Kardashian, Kourtney has been engaged to Blink-182's Travis Barker since October 2021. The 46-year-old musician proposed to Kourtney at a beachside hotel in Montecito, California, after nearly 10 months of dating.
Vogue has reported that Kourtney's gorgeous, fifteen-carat engagement ring is worth an impressive $1 million. It carries an oval-shaped diamond and was designed by Lorraine Schwartz, who is famous for being the designer of numerous celebrity engagement rings.
6. Jennifer Lopez: $1.8 Million
In 2012, Forbes said that Jennifer Lopez "may be the most powerful entertainer on the planet." According to Vogue, she also held one of the most expensive engagement rings too! In March 2019, New York Yankees baseball player Alex Rodriguez proposed to Lopez after the pair had been dating for 2 years.
The engagement ring the athlete gave his then-girlfriend had a 16-carat emerald diamond. Rodriguez apparently made a huge withdrawal from his bank account to purchase the ring for Lopez. According to Vogue, the ring is worth a jaw-dropping $1,800,000!
5. Blake Lively: $2 Million
Apparently, it's not just Serena van der Woodsen who lives a luxurious lifestyle. Blake Lively, who portrayed the character in the drama series Gossip Girl, received quite a piece of jewelry when Ryan Reynolds proposed to her after just months of dating.
The high-priced engagement ring had a 12-carat oval-cut diamond that sat on a micro-pavé band. According to Vogue, the ring set Reynolds back $2 million. But it's safe to say this Hollywood couple could afford it. They were married in 2012 and have three daughters together.
4. Paris Hilton: $2 Million
It certainly would take a high-end luxury ring to impress a wealthy multi-millionaire like Paris Hilton. But it looks like businessman Carter Reum knew just how to wow her. He proposed with a very expensive ring in February 2021, just a little over a year after the two began dating.
The engagement ring featured a 24-carat emerald diamond by jeweler Jean Dousset. Vogue estimates the cost of the ring to be a jaw-dropping $2 million! Paris Hilton and Carter Reum said their "I do's" in November, the same year they became engaged.
3. Kim Kardashian: $4.5 Million
Kim Kardashian certainly isn't new to the fancy life. The socialite and businesswoman began dating rapper Kanye West in 2012 and became engaged to him just six months later. And the price of the engagement ring he gave her cost him more than some people make in a lifetime!
The luxurious engagement ring had a 15-carat, flawless cushion-cut diamond from jeweler Lorraine Schwartz. According to Vogue, Kanye spent $4.5 million on Kim's ring. The two became engaged on Kim's 33rd birthday and were married in October of 2014.
2. Beyoncé: $5 Million
We're pretty sure that no one is surprised to see Queen B so high up on this list. The 40-year-old award-winning singer has been married to rapper Jay-Z since 2008 and has generally kept their relationship private. But thankfully, we do have an idea of how much Jay-Z paid for B's engagement ring.
According to Vogue, the ring's worth is estimated at $5 million. It has an 18-carat center diamond, which sits on a split shank. Together, the couple has three children, daughter Blue Ivy and twins - a daughter named Rumi and a son named Sir. Together, the two have a combined net worth of $1.6 billion!
1. Mariah Carey: $10 Million
Mariah Carey's relationship with Australian billionaire James Packer was short-lived, but apparently, its lifespan was long enough to boost her to #1 on this list. Packer got down on one knee in January 2016, but the two unfortunately called off the engagement in October of the same year.
The engagement ring caused an eyebrow-raising $10 million drop in Packer's fortune. It was designed by Wilfredo Rosado and had a 35-carat emerald-cut diamond set in platinum. Apparently, Packer thought the price was totally worth the prize at the time.
