Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande had only been dating a few months before he popped the question. (And of course, a few months later they ended the engagement.) Any other ring and he may have walked away disappointed. Ariana’s bling is a stunning 3-carat pear-shaped rock surrounded by a halo of more diamonds.
Miley has sure surprised us over the years, but no more than when she announced that she was engaged to her long-time on-and-off-again boyfriend Liam Helmsworth.

Prince Harry got a little bit creative with his engagement.

Despite the "drinking blood" scandals reminiscent of Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton and cringe couple's posts on Instagram, fans weren't shocked when rapper Machine Gun Kelly proposed to actress Megan Fox in Puerto Rico. Page Six gemologist Olivia Landau estimated the cost of the ring to fall within the range of $50,000 to $75,000! But fans were caught off guard by the "thorns" on the ring so it would cause pain to Fox if she ever took it off... Sure, beauty is pain, but that is just plain weird!
Since they got married rather quickly and in secret, Emily’s now-husband, producer Sebastian Bear-McClard, must have not had time to purchase the perfect engagement ring because she was only sporting a plain gold band for about a year. But oh, did he make up for it. She now sports a 5-carat diamond ring on her finger - 3 carats for the pear-shaped stone and 2 carats for the princess cut.

No one will confirm or deny the size of the ring, but it’s safe to say that it’s somewhere between 6 and 10 carats of beautiful!
Jennifer Lopez x1
Okay, okay, before there was a Marc Anthony, there was a Bennifer—as in Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez. Even though she had already been married twice before at this point, she didn’t hesitate to say yes when he popped the question. However, the two broke up less than a year later.
Jennifer Lopez x2
Once upon a time there were two Puerto Rican superstars who fell in love. Marc Anthony proposed to Jennifer Lopez with a rare blue 8.5-carat diamond ring. Her love might not cost a thing, but that ring certainly did. Although the marriage didn’t last, the two remain good friends to this day.
Okay. This one isn’t an engagement ring. Rather call it an “I’m sorry my name is in the tabloids and I’m sorry” ring from her super star NBA Hall of Famer husband Kobe Bryant. Either way, this girl wouldn’t say no to an apology like that if it came attached to an 8-carat rare purple diamond ring. Apparently, Vanessa didn’t either.

Catherine Zeta Jones
They’ve been married for close to two decades now, but Catherine Zeta-Jones’ Fred Leighton side-set marquise diamond ring still sparkles just the same. Especially at 10 carats. Not to mention that the center stone is surrounded by smaller diamonds. We would have said yes, too!

Although Tom-Kat didn’t last very long, the ring sure made a statement that said forever. Tom Cruise proposed to Katie Holmes atop the Eiffel tower in Paris with an Edwardian-cut oval-shaped 5-carat diamond surrounded by 6 carats of smaller diamonds. Yup. We would have jumped up and down on Oprah’s couch, too!
The only thing that’s blaringly obvious about Enrique Iglesias’ love for his wife is the tennis court of a yellow diamond she’s sporting on her ring finger. Well, the ring obviously worked since they did recently announce the birth of their third child.
Blake wed her Green Lantern co-star, Ryan Reynolds, in a secret ceremony on September 9, 2012, after less than a year of dating. When you know, you know (especially when Ryan Reynolds gives you a 12-carat pink diamond)!
While Serena and her Reddit-founder husband are extremely private about their life and relationship details, that ring is screaming happiness. Serena’s engagement ring is a 12-carat, large oval cut, with a stone on each side with an elegant platinum band. There’s no way we would have said no to that ring, either.

Ciara accepted rapper Future's proposal (and a 15-carat diamond ring) on her birthday back in October 2013.

According to Nicki's then-boyfriend, Meek Mill, this wasn't technically an engagement ring. But it's still making our list because even if it's just a promise ring, it's still a whopping 15 carats! And beautiful. And more than most of us can ever dream of owning.
Kim Kardashian West
Kanye pulled out all the (expensive) stops for his proposal back in October 2013. He asked Kim to marry him on her birthday, with the help of a rented out AT&T Park, a 50-piece orchestra, and...oh yeah...a 15-carat diamond ring. Kanye spent about $3.3 million on the proposal alone, which is pretty much the equivalent of the rock itself.
Brad and Angelina were once known as Hollywood's "power couple" so it's fitting that she would have an equally powerful 16-carat diamond ring. The two became officially engaged in April 2012 and married two years later in August 2014.
Joining the list of celebrities with big rocks and secret wedding ceremonies, Beyonce's 18-carat diamond ring made its first appearance a few months after she secretly wed longtime love Jay-Z in April 2008.
Jennifer Lopez x3
At this point, it's getting kind of hard to not be fooled by the rocks that she's got. But, third times a charm, right?

That’s right, not to be outdone by his predecessors, Alex Rodriguez spent over $5 mil for her high-quality, 18-carat, emerald cut rock.
Paris Hilton x1
Ladies. This ring though. Who wouldn’t dream of wearing a 20-carat pear-shaped diamond with another two carats of smaller diamonds surrounding it? Chris Zylka sure knew what he was doing!
Paris Hilton x2
Before there was a Chris Zylka, there was a Greek shipping heir and socialite named Paris Latsis who gave Hilton an immense square cut rock worth about $4.7 million. However, diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but boys come and go—and Hilton let this one go.
It wouldn't be a complete list without the one and only Elizabeth Taylor. Although she was married a total of eight times, it was her 33.19-carat diamond engagement ring from Richard Burton that everyone will remember forever.
They may not have actually tied the knot, but Mimi’s ex-fiancé James Packer showed us how obsessed he was about marrying her when he put that 35-carat rock on her hand. She continued to wear the ring for a year post-breakup—and we don’t blame her a bit!
Jackie Kennedy Onassis

When you’re on engagement round two, you better get it right! J-Lo announced her newest engagement to Ben Affleck in April of 2022. After being separated for nearly 20 years, the couple reunited after Jennifer dumped A-Rod. If you ask us, she’s onto bigger and better things.
Jennifer announced the engagement on social media through a video message to fans flashing a giant diamond ring saying, “You’re perfect.” The ring is a gorgeous green with a massive center stone offset with two smaller stones. If you ask us, it kind of looks like the first ring Ben got her.
