10 Most Expensive Engagement Rings of All Time

By on February 3, 2015

#3: Beyonce ($5 million)

Beyonce and Jay-Z are one of the most famous celebrity couples in the world today, and the mega-rich stars have no problem spending lots of money on each other, routinely dropping millions on presents for special occasions.

But the couple’s propensity for spending was made very clear when Jay sprung $5 million on an incredibly nice engagement ring for his then-girlfriend of five years in 2008.

How could anyone say no to a proposal when presented with ring like the one Jay-Z presented to Beyonce? It’s not even fair.

Beyonce’s ring contains an 18-carat octagon-cut diamond, set in pure platinum, and has been rated as one of the most clear, premium diamonds around today.

This celeb marriage gives us all hope, as (so far) Jay-Z and Beyonce remain as “Crazy in Love” as ever, and are one of the entertainment industry’s elite power couples.


#2: Kim Kardashian ($8 million)

Another one of the world’s most famous couples today, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West married last year with plenty of fanfare.

Both Kim and Kanye are known for being utterly profligate spenders, so it should come as no surprise that Kanye had to one-up Jay-Z by spending $8 million on his engagement ring for Kim Kardashian.

Kim K’s ring features an enormous, 15-carat clear diamond, set in a handmade diamond band, with touches of gold.

Not as many details are known about this ring as the others on this list, but for $8 million, we can assume it’s pretty nice. Kanye West would never settle for anything other than ridiculous, over-the-top decadence after all.

This relationship is still in its infancy, but if I were Kanye, I’d be a little nervous about dropping $8 million on a ring for a lady whose last marriage lasted just 72 days before she filed for divorce.
