After spending some time browsing through engagement rings for yesterday’s post, I came across a few famous engagement rings that are worth noting. It’s apparent that no expense was spared with these gemstone giants.
During their first marriage together, Richard Burton presented Elizabeth Taylor with a 69 carat pear-shaped diamond ring. Ok, so this one isn’t an engagement ring but it is so enormous I had to include it. The diamond was too big to wear as a ring so Elizabeth Taylor had it refashioned into a necklace.
Nick Cannon presented pop star Mariah Carey with a striking ring containing a rare 17 carat pink diamond, encased by two half-moon diamonds and surrounded by smaller intense pink diamonds. This ring cost an estimated $2.5 million.
