10 Celebrity Engagement Rings at a Pauper’s Price

Celebrity Engagement Rings

Some of us are happy with a small, subtle diamond; “It’s what it means that counts…” Others roll our eyes at comments like that, and lust after huge, blingy rocks. This article is for the girls whose favorite song is “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend” and who grew up watching “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” Or for the girls who do appreciate that it’s the thought behind the ring that matters, and want to help their man out by letting him not waste all of his life savings on that thought.

I’ve put together a bunch of gorgeous celebrity engagement rings and paired them with similar rings at more realistic prices.

10 Celebrity Engagement Rings That Could Be Yours:

1. The Drew Barrymore Ring

We’re all used to Drew Barrymore being alternative and funky, so you were probably just as surprised as I was when I saw how traditional her engagement ring is. She even told Anderson Cooper on Anderson that she was trying to get used to how “fancy” the ring is. When she paired it with a vintage wedding band, however, it felt very Drew. Her ring features a colorless radiant-cut 4 carat diamond with what looks like channel-set pavé diamonds along with the band. Her bling is estimated at $80,000.

You don’t have to pay top dollar to get a ring as fancy as Drew’s! This beautiful channel-set radiant-cut sparkler will make you feel like a movie star. If you’re looking for a classy with a hint of funky, pair it with an eternity ring.

2. The Lauren Conrad Ring

There’s something so feminine and dainty about Lauren Conrad. Her ladylike sophistication and her relatability are what draw 700,000 users to her pretty, pink website every month, and what bring her millions of devoted followers on social media. Rose gold is all the buzz these days; its vintage feel will never go out of style, and Lauren’s 2 carat round-cut solitaire rose gold ring suits her perfectly, as it is simple, feminine and subdued. Her ring is said to cost about $30,000.

This 4-prong, round cut solitaire rose gold ring, much like Lauren’s, has a simple grace to it. We can attest to the current rose gold trend, as our rose gold sales at James Allen have quadrupled in 2015. Brides are embracing more unique metal choices such as rose gold, says our CEO Oded Edelman. The thick band on this engagement ring adds presence to an otherwise subtle ring.

3. The Blake Lively Ring

Blake Lively opted for rose gold as well. Her seven carat oval-shaped pink diamond sits elegantly on a thin, rounded setting with pavé diamonds along with the band. Her ring is valued at about $2 million. The ring is consistent with Blake’s fashion-forward style; the rose gold dazzler is almost as hard to take your eyes off of as Blake’s Gossip-Girl-worthy outfits.

4. The Kate Middleton Ring

This ring never ceases to draw attention to it. Its deep blue 12 carat sapphire center stone is framed in 14 luminous diamonds, giving the royal ring a flower-like look. The famous jewel, which once belonged to the beloved Princess Diana, is now valued at £300,000.

This majestic ring features an oval-shaped blue sapphire framed with a stunning diamond halo and 3 more diamonds on each side. The sapphire beauty truly is fit for royalty and speaks to my inner princess. After all, doesn’t every girl deserve to feel like a princess?

5. The Kim Kardashian Ring

The reality star has never been known to be subtle, so why should her ring be? The pavé setting highlights Kim’s 15 carat cushion-cut rock. Kanye did not disappoint.

The delicate yellow gold cushion-cut ring matches the beauty of the Israeli supermodel. Its thin band makes the diamond appear even bigger than it actually is. I wonder if her ex, Leonardo DiCaprio, would have given her such a delicate stunner.

7. The Sofia Vergara Ring

Beyoncé is a strong, independent woman who knows and gets what she wants. Let’s face it: She’s boss. Her amazing split-shank $5 million 18 carat ring bling shows us just how fierce she is.

9. The Lady Gaga Ring

There’s nothing shy about Lady Gaga, so I’m not surprised that she loves showing off her rock. Her gigantic heart-shaped pavé ring is a perfect match for the singer, with a 6 carat heart diamond, estimated at $400,000.
