It's wedding season, so what better time to highlight some of the most sparkly celebrity engagement rings? Everyone from Jessica Alba to Molly Sims to Jennifer Hudson to Carrie Underwood — the list goes on and on — were proposed to with the most stunning rocks ever seen. From antique styles to chunkier rocks to art deco to super classic, there's something in there for every bride-to-be to draw inspiration from. Or to just go gaga over. Step inside to see — or shall we say be blinded by — it all!
I'll admit that I'm a bit of a magpie and a sparkly diamond can make me smile. But when I saw Kim Kardashian's 20.5-carat engagement ring, I wondered if there's such a thing as too much bling. Celebrities have boatloads of cash, we all know that, so is flaunting your assets with such an ostentatious accessory really necessary?
And Kim isn't the only one with a ginormous rock. Back in 2005, Paris wore a whopping 24 carats on her ring finger, and she wasn't shy about reminding us all that her $5 million piece of jewelry trumped Kim's $2 million diamond. We've been discussing the bodacious bling with friends and co-workers, and while some may think "hey, if they have the cash, why not?" others argue that it's just wrong to put that much money on daily display when it could be put to use helping others or bettering the world. What do you think?
This past year saw a crop of celebrity engagements — and with it a new collection of dazzling engagement rings. From the blindingly beautiful to the vintage-inspired, we've got a look at the engagement jewels ranging from royalty to one of our favorite supermodel-meets-Hollywood couples — and plenty more from our Fab celebs.
