The solitaire diamond engagement ring evokes timeless elegance, but designer jewelry houses have cooked up more trends this year that elevate these rings to a new level. A combination of novel prone settings, air of sensuality, and contrasting colors, among others, set the benchmark for the most beautiful engagement rings today.
In our case, we just need one defining factor measured by our drooling curiosity: the sparkling, spellbinding, absorbing price of these ten diamond engagement rings that we couldn’t get our eyes off.
It’s the thought that counts, we know, but we wonder what sort of thoughts were going on in the minds of these women when their fiancés opened the box to reveal one of these lovely rings inside. How about $2.5 million? That’s 10-carat diamond ring that Michael Douglas gave to Catherine Zeta Jones.
But it’s not all price, really. Surprisingly, the “cheapest” ring in our list belongs to Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge. It’s only about $137,200. Prince Williams is not scrimping on her for sure; rather, the ring belongs to his mother, Princess Diana, who wore the same piece after agreeing to marry the England’s heir to the throne decades ago.
Well, money can’t buy you to royalty, but it can buy you to the top of our list, which was what Richard Burton must have been thinking when he gave his ring to Elizabeth Taylor. How much is it worth? Let’s just say it’s worth as much as about fifty 2013 Bentleys.
