Celebrities continuously delight and surprise us with their extravagant engagement rings, and we love the inspiration and ever-changing trends they bring to our attention.

Some of these rings stand out more than others, so we’ve scoured the red carpet to find the most breathtaking rocks.

1. Kim Kardashian

In perhaps one of the most publicised and anticipated proposals in celebrity history, Kanye West proposed to Kim Kardashian at the AT&T Park in San Francisco – and the ring didn’t disappoint. According to an estimation made by celebrity jewellery expert Michael O’Connor to E! News, the stunning sparkler set West back somewhere in the range of US$2.5 – 3 million. Only the best for this reality TV starlet!

2. Scarlett Johansson

A twist on the traditional diamond engagement ring, Scarlett’s French journalist beau made a stunning choice with this Art Deco beauty. It’s a much more jaw-dropping piece than the one she received from former husband Ryan Reynolds – who’s now married to Hollywood beauty Blake Lively – and we love its vintage look.

3. Beyonce Knowles

This music superstar continues to go from strength to strength in both her professional and personal life. According to OK! Magazine, the stunning Lorraine Schwartz platinum diamond ring Jay Z gave Beyonce cost a whopping US$5 million dollars – proving that if you like it then you better put an expensive ring on it!

4. Elizabeth Hurley

Opting for a sapphire rather than the traditional diamond, this blue beauty looks incredible against Elizabeth’s pale skin. A similar choice to another certain Brit – hint, she’s a new addition the Royal family – it’s obviously a popular choice over in the UK! We love this alternative choice, and the cut is absolutely divine.

5. Poppy Delevingne

Perhaps the most modern and innovative design on the list, this supermodel’s sparkler is an incredibly show-stopping piece. The Leo de Vroomen beauty features a blue gem set amongs’t heart-shaped diamonds in a wide gold band, and we are absolutely in love!
