Love may not be forever, but diamonds can be. Whenever news of a celebrity engagement breaks, usually the first question on everyone’s mind is “What does the ring look like?” While some celebrity couples opt for sparklers that could be seen from space or take inspiration from celebrity friends (in the case of Hailey Bieber who was inspired by Blake Lively), some purchase subtle yet spectacular rings or incorporate family heirlooms. These are the celebrity engagement rings that captured our attention.

Jennifer Lopez

 

Her love may not cost a thing, but this magnificent engagement ring sure did. Jennifer Lopez announced her engagement to Ben Affleck in an emotional video (cleverly only available to those signed up to her newsletter) in which the 8.5-carat emerald-cut green diamond steals the show. Flanked by two smaller white diamonds, its estimated value is up to Dhs37 million thanks to the extremely rare centre stone.

Orlando Bloom proposed with a Victorian-inspired ring featuring a 4-carat ruby or vivid pink diamond surrounded by smaller diamonds (if you consider 1 carat small, that is). Although it was never confirmed to be the reason behind the flower-shaped ring, Orlando’s last name could have been the inspiration.

Meghan Markle

Prince Harry popped the question with a sentimental ring that was custom made to include two diamonds from Princess Diana’s personal collection, which flank the centre stone. Originally on a gold band, Harry replaced it for a diamond-studded band after they wed.
