When it comes to diamond cluster engagement rings for celebrities, the trend seems to be the bigger, the better. Most celebrities have a larger engagement ring budget than the rest of us, and sometimes there seems to be a game of one-upmanship going on with Hollywood engagements and weddings. So what ARE the biggest celebrity engagement rings of all time, you ask? According to a recent CNN article, here are some of the winners:
1. Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge
In 2010, Prince William proposed to his girlfriend using his mother’s engagement ring. Princess Diana’s ring is a diamond cluster engagement ring with a large sapphire in the middle and many smaller diamonds clustered around the outside, totaling 18 carats, which is certainly much bigger than the rings most of us wear.
2. Elizabeth Taylor and Michael Todd
In 1957, Elizabeth Taylor got married with a 30 carat diamond ring on her finger.
3. Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon
Nick Cannon proposed to singer Mariah Carey a few years back with a 17 carat pink diamond surrounded by 58 smaller pink diamonds.
Perhaps such giant diamond cluster engagement rings are not even close to the budget that most of us have to work with. But if you have celebrity style, you can still find affordable wedding jewelry that has a big visual impact without breaking the bank.
