2014 looks set to be a big year for many people. There’s a little more cash floating around these days, so thousands of couples all over the world are expected to take romantic holidays and eventually tie the knot over the next twelve months. This means the amount spent on engagement rings will reach far into the millions of pounds – a shocking amount, I’m sure you’ll agree. Still, some of our most popular celebrities have spent sums comparable to this on a single engagement ring, and I’m going to highlight some of the most beautiful throughout the rest of this article.
Whether you like their choices or not, there can be no disputing that these rings are designed for only the most rich and influential people in society. Some contain diamonds; some contain other precious stones, but they all have one undeniable thing in common; although he might buy sophisticated and elegant bridal jewellery, you know your fiance can’t afford to buy you one of these.
So, without any further delay, here they are…
1 – Kanye West & Kim Kardashian
Designed specifically for the couple by Lorraine Schwartz, this huge diamond sparklet reduced Mr West’s bank balance by a whopping $8 million. Thankfully, Kim accepted the proposal and the couple have since become almost as solid as that heavy stone.
2 – Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck
You don’t get to see too many 4.5 carat diamonds on engagement rings these days, probably because they’re becoming harder to come by in the mines of Sierra Leone. Even so, Ben “I’m a terrible actor so I’ll try my hand at directing” Affleck managed to source one from somewhere for the love of his life, and didn’t it look amazing.
3 – Beyonce & Jay Z
When this couple got together the world was left slightly confused, as Beyonce had spent years singing about how independent she was, and how she didn’t think anyone was ready for her jelly. That said; the relationship seems to be going well and thanks to Mr Z’s choice of engagement ring, it looks likely she’s fallen crazy in love. To be fair, I would too with a diamond that big.
4 – Sarah Jessica Parker & Matthew Broderick
Who would of thought that sex in the city star SJP would find her real life Mr Big and finally settle down to have kids? Not me that’s for sure, but I think the decision probably had something to do with Brodericks choice of engagement ring, which was made of yellow gold with stunning diamond. I bet Samantha is kicking herself (or doing something equally as physical)
5 – Heidi Klum & Seal
Though their marriage ended sadly in 2012, I still can’t forget the ring Seal gave to his wife to be. This ten carat engagement ring hit headlines all over the world for its £7,000,000 price tag. When asked in an interview if he was losing his mind spending so much money, Seal replied “we’re never gonna survive unless we get a little crazy”. Good comeback Mr Seal.
So there you have it guy and gals. I’ll leave it there and give you a few moments to look for photos of these couples online to dribble over. Don’t get too depressed though, money isn’t everything; it just makes engagement rings look more shiny and luxurious.
Catch you later!
