Emily Ratajkowski’s Unique Engagement Ring Could Literally Take Your Eye Out

Latest news

    The thing about celebrity engagement rings is that the longer you read about them, the more skewed your perception of “expensive” becomes. A ring that racked up a £150,000 receipt is no longer considered to be worth a second glance when you compare it to one that cost a cool £7 million. In reality, though, nearly every celebrity engagement ring is absurdly beautiful, large and therefore, pricey. And what’s more is that the stories and proposals behind them make every ring that little bit more interesting.

    Take this week’s whopper of a diamond: Emily Ratajkowski was married back in February of 2018 (you may recall her rather awesome yellow Zara trouser suit chosen instead of a traditional dress), but until now she had been wearing a gold band instead of this two-diamond beauty. Revealed alongside a chunky gold band there is one pear-shaped stone alongside a square, creating a truly unique engagement ring idea we hadn’t seen before.

    Über-blogger Chiara Ferragni was proposed to recently by her musician boyfriend (now fiancé) Federico Leonardo Lucia (known as Fedez). The ring was classic round diamond with a simple band. 
    At the Met Gala this year, Anna Wintour’s daughter, Bee Shaffer, debuted her engagement ring from fiancé Francesco Carrozzini, the son of Franca Sozzani, the late Vogue Italia editor in chief. Oh, to be a fly on the wall at that super-chic wedding.
    Beckham might just be the reigning queen of celebrity engagement rings. Recent reports suggest she has as many as 13 different rings husband David Beckham has bestowed upon her throughout their 15-year marriage. The total estimated worth? About £5 million. The first, however, was a three-carat diamond ring worth about £65,000 and was designed by Boodle & Dunthorpe. The one pictured here is an emerald-cut yellow diamond set in yellow gold worth £10,000.
    Palermo’s cushion-cut yellow diamond from husband Johannes Huebl is estimated to be around three carats, and it is surrounded on the sides by two white diamonds. Huebl proposed to Palermo on New Year’s Day in 2014. 
    The Duchess of Cambridge famously accepted Princess Diana’s blue sapphire engagement ring when Prince William proposed to her. The ring boasts a 12-carat central sapphire stone with 14 solitaire diamonds in a halo around it, and it has soared in value from £28,000 to £300,000.
    Angelina Jolie’s 16-carat engagement ring from Brad Pitt is worth about £200,000, and it took Pitt a year to create it with jeweller Robert Procop. Pitt proposed to Jolie in 2012, and the couple tied the knot in 2014.
    As if being funny and gorgeous wasn’t enough, Blake Lively’s now-husband Ryan Reynolds proposed to her with an incredible pink oval-shaped 12-carat ring that cost £1.9 million.
    Aniston’s oval-shaped diamond from Justin Theroux is thought to be at least 10 carats in weight, and it’s likely to have cost Theroux a pretty penny: at least £800,000.
    Jay Z gave Beyoncé a gorgeous octagon-cut engagement ring from Lorraine Schwartz back in 2007, and it’s now worth around £4 million.
    For her third marriage, to rapper Kanye West, Kardashian accepted a more than 15-carat diamond ring valued at a mega £1.1 million.
    Prince Rainier III of Monaco gave the actress Grace Kelly a stunning 10.5 carat ring from Cartier that was worth £3.1 million.
    Ciara got engaged to rapper Future in 2013, but the couple broke up in 2014. Her ring was 15 carats, and it was worth £1.1 million.
    How could we forget about TomKat? The couple got engaged in 2005, with Cruise giving Holmes a 5-carat ring that cost £1.1 million.
    Ah, Bennifer, the couple that arguably started the super-couple portmanteau trend. For this engagement, Affleck gave J.Lo a gorgeous £2 million, 6.1-carat pink diamond ring from Harry Winston.
    When Michael Douglas proposed to Catherine Zeta-Jones in 1999, he gave her a gorgeous 1920s antique by Fred Leighton featuring a 10-carat jewel. It’s reported to have cost £800,000.
    Nick Cannon gave Mariah Caray a gorgeous diamond ring worth nearly £2 million.
    While this was—and still is—the most famous of Jackie Kennedy’s jewels (and she had quite the collection), apparently she only wore this piece twice before storing it in a safe. Given to her by Aristotle Onassis, the ring, called the Lesotho III diamond, is worth £2 million.
    When J.Lo got engaged to fiancé Marc Anthony, she was given an 8-carat ring that cost £3.2 million.
    While Kim Kardashian West is now married to Kanye West, the reality star married basketball player Kris Humphries back in 2011 after accepting a £1.5 million, 16.2-carat ring from Lorraine Schwartz.
    Was there ever a more dramatic Hollywood relationship than Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton’s? This ring had a whopping 33.19 carats and was worth £7 million.
    Co-designed by husband Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel’s engagement ring took inspiration from vintage rings and cost over £100,000. 
    Nicole Kidman’s engagement ring from country star Keith Urban is unique in that it is not one solitaire stone but rather a Cartier ring of diamonds surrounding her finger. Its estimated value is around £39,000. Next up! 28 incredible engagement rings for every budget. Opening Image: @blakelively
