We've seen some serious sparkle on the celebrities' ring fingers over the past year. With some of Hollywood's most glamorous major players getting engaged, Tinsel Town has gotten that much more dazzling. While it's no secret that A-listers will go above and beyond when proposing to their sweethearts, the baubles that have been popping up in the headlines as of late have taken things to a whole new level. From multi-million dollar customized stunners to one-of-a-kind vintage pieces, the rings that stars are rocking certainly set a new standard for engagements.
Are you already thinking about your dream engagement ring? When stars tie the knot, they go all out – and even if you have a much smaller budget, you can still pretend you're part of the elite. While you may not be able to sport something of quite the same caliber as these leading ladies, you'll easily find something similar at Fine Jewelers.
Here are some top picks from the past year that might provide a little inspiration.
Jamie Lynn Spears
It makes sense that Spears opted to brag about her rock to her fans. StyleBistro reported that she posted a close-up of her ring on Twitter with the hashtag "#hedidgood," and fiancé Jamie Watson certainly did. The ring features a brilliant solitaire diamond at the center and, for even more wow factor, it contains diamonds studded all the way around the band as well.
This isn't Aniston's first engagement ring, but Theroux managed to outdo her ex, Brad Pitt, with a massive rose-cut diamond. StyleBistro noted that the bling is so blinding that photographer's flashes have been reflected by the stone in an awe-inspiring way ever since she slipped it on her finger.
For a bombshell like Johansson, not just any ring would do. Journalist Romain Dauriac was well aware of that fact, which is why he proposed with a vintage-inspired sparkler with an Art Deco flair, according to E! Online. Johansson was definitely pleased with his classy choice, too. The source reported that the starlet admitted "it's over the top in a good way."
Fans have long been waiting with baited breath for Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, costars from "That '70s Show," to tie the knot. Stone Fox Bride creative director Molly Guy told Pret-a-Reporter that the diamond dazzler, which features a platinum band, is perfectly in line with Kunis' conventional tastes. Still, she admitted it has an undeniable luxurious look and definitely makes a statement. According to MyDaily, expert jeweler Shari Fabrikant estimates that this bling cost Kutcher at least $250,000.
It should hardly be surprising that Williams admitted on "Late Night With Seth Meyers" that she can't stop staring at her ring from fiancé and CollegeHumor co-founder Ricky Van Veen. She even went so far as to say she's obsessed with it. The piece includes a solitaire cut diamond, which gives off an air of timeless elegance.
For a 23-year-old actress, Roberts managed to snag a pretty impressive rock. MyDaily reported that the enormous diamond ring with a rose-gold setting, which was given to her by Evan Peters, is believed to have set the "American Horror Story" actor back between $37,000 and $50,000. While this jaw-dropping rock may not be for every girl, one thing's for sure: It's the epitome of glamour.
When French banker Olivier Sarkozy decided to propose to this Olsen twin, he was prepared to shell out a lot of funds. Pret-a-Reporter called the engagement ring bold, tasteful and beautiful. It's also rather valuable as well. According to MyDaily, the enormous vintage Cartier sparkler dates back to 1953. Though Sotheby's expected the ring to rake in between $40,000 and $60,000 at a jewelry auction, it was bought for a whopping $81,250.
