The fashion of celebrities is always being scrutinized in the public eye. Whether dressed to the nines for a red carpet appearance or dressed down to hit the gym for a workout, paparazzi are ever-present to capture the look of the top celebrities. Accessories are high on the list, especially engagement rings. Since the budgets of these stars is often much higher than those of average individuals, Americans are fascinated by the size, cut, and color of the rings.
Reese Witherspoon recently received a four-carat diamond ring from fiancé Tim Toth, designed by William Goldberg and estimated at $250,000. Natalie Portman sports a large round diamond set on a band with pave diamonds, and Hilary Duff’s fiancé Mike Comrie, proposed with a $1 million 14-carat square cut diamond ring. Some celebrities prefer a more unique look for their engagement rings, such as Carrie Underwood, whose ring features a round yellow diamond with an outer band of white diamonds, and Mariah Carey, who has a 10-carat pink center stone surrounded by more than 50 pink diamonds. Her ring was estimated to cost $2.5 million.
Katie Holmes wears a more elegant style, with an oval diamond set on a thin band. Katherine Heigl honors her family with her ring; the pear-shaped diamond is set on a band that incorporates the design that was given to her mother years ago, and was designed by her fiancé singer Josh Kelley. Khloe Kardashian, who is married to NBA star Lamar Odom, has a 9-carat solitaire diamond set on a pave band. Jennifer Aniston received a unique style of ring from ex-husband Brad Pitt, which featured a round diamond set in a swirled cut that he wanted to symbolize eternity. Scarlett Johansson’s engagement ring was set on a yellow gold band and displayed a stunning solitaire diamond.
