Celebrity Engagement Rings: Serious Sparklers

Not a day goes by in pop culture when an engagement (Britney, bish!) or divorce (sorry, Kobe) isn’t announced. Isn’t love grand? While a breakup is enough to bring a tear to our eyes and lead to nights binging on ice cream and playing Adele on repeat, we LOOOVE to hear a man got on one knee and proposed to our fave pop princesses. And 2011 was the perfect year to make a relationship OFFIC with STAHS like Kim Kardashian, Anne Hathaway, and (GASP) the one and only Brit Brit sporting new bling. Of course, the relationship is most important (cough, Kim Kardashian), but we won’t be mad if he puts a ring on it with a suurrrious, show-stopping sparkler. So, let’s see whose rock shines the brightest, shall we?

Newsflash: Miss Britney is a woman with class. She’s all grown up and ready for real love, hence her understated Neil Lane ring of 4 carats from her former agent Jason Trawick. Sure we’ve never seen a celeb with a ring this small, but we’ve also never seen Brit more in love. And that’s what’s most important anyway…right? RIGHT?

Disney diva, you better WERQUE! Hilary Duff got wifed up by Mike Comrey, her hockey beau of 2 years, with a ring that costs, oh, only 1 MILLION DOLLARS! Rumor has it the 13-carat ring was so big, Hilary didn’t believe the dazzling gem was real. Oh it is, honey, and so is your love.

Jay-Z’s ring drove Beyonce so crazy she wrote a song AND made a dance about it. We would too if we got a Lorraine Schwartz 18-carat ring worth more than $5 million! *does Single Ladies dance*

Not only did the California girl get a 12-carat ring valued at $1.3 million when comedian Russell Brand popped the question, but he also flew Katy Perry out to India for the occasion (they got married there as well). That’s international love, y’all.
