Bespoke Engagement Rings: Take Inspiration from Celebrities

Jaycee De Leon

Who wouldn't wish to have the most beautiful engagement or wedding rings London jewellers can craft? If you want to show your love and strong bond as a couple in a unique way, but lack inspiration, you can "steal" a few ideas from what VIPs are wearing. Of course, most people can't afford to spend millions of pounds on a single piece of jewellery, but you can easily have a more affordable one made based on a similar design or concept. Check out the most expensive engagement rings celebrities have ever worn to inspire your choice.

Mariah Carey

Estimated at around 8-10 million dollars, the engagement ring Mariah Carey received from her fiancée, James Packer, is the most expensive celebrity "rock" as of yet. The exquisite jewel is a jaw-dropping 35 carat emerald-cut diamond set in platinum and framed by two graceful baguette diamonds. The exquisite design is by Wilfredo Rosado, and its elegant simplicity is what makes it truly shine.

Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor's Krupp Diamond, received from Richard Burton, held the title of the most expensive engagement ring in the world for decades, being auctioned at $8.8 million in 2011. The ring is a 33 carat Asscher-cut stone set in platinum and surrounded by two smaller diamonds. What's interesting is that, technically, this exquisite piece of jewellery wasn't actually intended as an engagement ring, but Elizabeth Taylor wore it as one. Her actual engagement present was a Bulgari emerald brooch the first time Burton proposed to her – for the second marriage proposal, Richard gave her a Bulgari emerald necklace.

Kim Kardashian

Estimated at around $8 million, Kim Kardashian's engagement ring received from Kanye West is a D-colour Type 2A flawless cushion-cut Schwartz diamond. Famous jeweller Lorraine Schwartz set the stone as a solitaire on a very thin, delicate platinum band featuring micro pavé.

Beyoncé

Jay Z's marriage proposal to Beyoncé was accompanied by a beautiful 18-carat Schwartz diamond engagement ring valuated at $5 million. The jewel is an emerald-cut flawless stone set on an elegant split-shank platinum band, featuring micro-pavé diamonds.

Honourable Mention – Kate Middleton

Estimated at $500,000 Kate Middleton's 12-carat sapphire might not be one of the most expensive bespoke engagement rings London – or the world - has ever seen, but it certainly has the highest sentimental value, and you cannot put a price on that. This beautiful, delicate jewel is a family heirloom that was formerly worn by Diana, Princess of Wales.
