Marilyn Monroe is well known for “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.” Once upon a time, only a handful of celebrities owned the most expensive diamond rings, which became trendsetters. Although, classics never fade away, times have certainly changed.
These days, if a ring tops the chart of most expensive rings one day, the very next day its value depreciates because some other ring outbids. In simple terms, one day we are mesmerized by a celebrity ring worth $500,000, and the very next day, our attention is taken away by a ring worth $8 Million.
These diamond engagement rings have made their permanent mark in history. Let’s look at the recent most popular and expensive diamond engagement rings:
Angelina Jolie: Presented by Brad Pitt, Jolie’s large e-ring is valued at half Million. The 10-carat ring sits perfectly on her finger.
Jennifer Aniston: Proposed by Justin Theroux, her ring also weights 10 carats, but costs twice, $1 Million.
