We present history’s biggest and brightest engagement rings- as famous for their visual appearance as for the celebrity women who wore them. Take a look below at the famous engagement rings that will be remembered for years to come.
- Princess Diana and Kate Middleton
The blue sapphire with diamond halo that once first belonged to the adored Princess Diana in 1981 and then was passed to the next generation when Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, gave his mother’s ring to Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, when he proposed in 2010. The timeless deep blue sapphire keeps the memory of the beloved princess alive.
- Elizabeth Taylor
For her third marriage to film producer Mike Todd, Elizabeth Taylor received a massive 29.4 carat emerald-cut diamond. This giant ring was adored by people everywhere and made quite the statement.
- Marilyn Monroe
When baseball legend Joe DiMaggio gifted Marilyn Monroe with an eternity band featuring 35 baguette-cut diamond, this simplistic and elegant band style dramatically grew in popularity. Technically it became her wedding band as she received it on her wedding day but sadly their marriage did not last.
Jay Z gifted Queen Bey with a stunning 18-carat emerald cut diamond proving the perfect bling statement piece for the internationally renowned superstar. The classic shape and design steals the limelight, as does the sensational performer.

The solitaire diamond set in platinum ring that Prince Phillip presented to Princess Elizabeth in 1947 is classic and elegant in style. Radiating royal beauty, this sentimental piece boasts meticulous detail and emulates class.
