Lately, there’s been a lot of buzz about the gigantuous size of Kim Kardashian’s 20.5 carat engagament ring. Come on, really?
It’s silly to think that celebrities are so rich these days that spending millions of their moolah on bling seems utterly ridiculous, considering all the poverty and starving children in the world today.
If I can feel bad for not finishing my plate of food, they should feel horrible for these frivolous purchase.
In this post, I will consolidate a list of Top 10 crazy huge engagement rings celebrities are donning today. I’ve only compiled my personal favourites of (mostly) double digit carats of diamond here.
Yes. Double digit carats of diamond!

Queen B got married to the rap superstar Jay-Z. The lovely couple are both huge Rap and R&B superstars in their very own right. Personally, they seem the most fitting and cutest couple in the music industry.

4. Mariah Carey

Heidi & Seal has got to be my favourite couple in the world. Her bubbly personality mixed with the handsome strong silent type that Seal is seems just the perfect fit. Do you also know that they have a renewal of wedding vow with a themed ceremony on their anniversary every year? Such a cute couple.
Her engagement ring is a canary cushion cut 12 carat diamond worth USD$ 1.5 million.
7. Victoria Beckham

The spotted bling is an 8 carat diamond ring, reportedly worth USD$ 250,000. Hmmm…. less than a million bucks, huh?
10. Christina Aguilera

Although the marriage between X-Tina and her music producer husband, Jordan Bratman ended late last year, they both shared a cute son, Max from the marriage.
Jordan proposed to Christina with this 5 carat ring costing a mere USD$ 100,000. Apparently, this is relatively small for celebrity engagement rings. Pffft.
Are there any other (recent) celebrity rings that are bigger that I have missed? Let me know in the comment.
Also, let me know what diamond size (or carat) is an acceptable size? I have a 1.5 carat and sometimes I feel even that is a bit too big for my teeny finger. Let me know your thoughts in the comment below.
