Celebrities just want to be loved too, and what better way to ask for it than with a multi-faceted, high-carat creation capable of making kings and queens feel envious? These celebrities started out their betrothals in style, with rings that left us gasping for breath:
Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas
A ten-carat diamond nestled snugly inside an east-west setting was the offering that silver-screen star Michael Douglas bestowed upon his lady-love, Catherine Zeta-Jones in 1999. The large center diamond is surrounded by 28 smaller diamonds, and the ring is currently valued at a cool $2.5 million dollars. It may not be the Jewel of the Nile, but who’s complaining?
Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony
Prior to their 2004 wedding in Beverly Hills, California, Marc Anthony presented Jennifer Lopez with a stunning blue diamond that’s rumored to weigh 8.5 carats. Reportedly worth a whopping $4 million, the engagement ring designed by Neil Lane wasn’t enough to keep the couple together. Even before their official divorce in 2014, Jennifer went public with her plans to sell the lovely blue diamond. Clearly, Jenny from the block still knows all the best pawn shops.
Paris Hilton and Paris Latsis
In May of 2005, Greek shipping heir, Paris Latsis, presented his intended, Paris Hilton, with a shiny rock that’s currently valued at $4.7 million. Sadly, the 25-carat white diamond wasn’t enough to seal the deal. The couple split up not long after, and Hilton auctioned off the ring to help victims of Hurricane Katrina — a fitting end to a stormy romance.
