Stars tend to go the extra mile when it comes to almost everything that everyday people do. The diamond engagement ring is no exception.
The diamond engagement rings that celebrities rock have to stand out, just like them. They still come in the common diamond shapes and styles like oval, rose gold, emerald cut, pear-shaped, cushion cut, yellow gold, modest, however, the difference is that they make their rings an investment.

If you want to fantasize about all the possibilities for your potential engagement ring, then have a look at this celebrity engagement ring guide for inspiration – dreams can come true!

Everyone is familiar with this hot Latino singer, actress and quite recently, producer. J Lo’s latest diamond engagement ring – yes, she’s been given a few – is basically a single solitaire style emerald-cut 15-carat diamond. The diamond is set on a yellow gold ring. The solitaire style ensures the large 15-carat diamond is the focal point of this large diamond engagement ring. It also means that no other smaller diamonds are to be found on the yellow gold band around her finger. Alex Rodriguez is estimated to have spent around £ 3.5 million to purchase this marvel for his fiancée. Such a high price for the diamond must surely come from the diamond’s flawless clarity.

Queen Bey, the famous American singer, songwriter and actress only deserves to be treated like a queen, especially by her husband. In her case, this happened to be another music mogul, namely Jay Z.

The 18-carat solitaire emerald style diamond was designed by the renowned jeweller and fashion designer Lorraine Shwaltz, a bonafide diamond expert. Again, by employing the solitaire style, the large emerald diamond is the eye-catching centrepiece of the white gold engagement ring. The stone is nothing but flawless in its clarity, and the sparkle inherent in the stone is truly superb and makes this ring true bling.

If there is a celebrity who has made it primarily due to controversy, it would be none other than Paris Hilton. The heiress to the Hilton hotel business empire received an impeccably stunning 20-carat diamond engagement ring from actor Chris Zylka.

The halo design of the diamond engagement ring ensures that the heart-shaped diamond is secured in the platinum split shank at the centre. All around the central diamond are numerous other smaller diamonds that further enhance the brilliance of this platinum diamond engagement ring. It is estimated that this ring has a price tag of £ 1.6 million.
