Celebrity engagement rings have always awed and inspired us! Let's face it: these envied women are the queens of bling. If they didn't sport the most gorgeous, outrageous rocks" around, than who would (or could)? Certain celebrity engagement rings stand out among others. As they compete for attention, the bar is constantly being raised, too.
Here, we celebrate those spectacular celebrity engagement rings that will surely go down in the history books - if they haven't already. Noteworthy engagement rings of the past include those of the mesmerizing Elizabeth Taylor and the classic beauty, Grace Kelly. Both of these legendary actresses captured the hearts of wealthy men in their day. These men placed lavish engagement rings on their fingers we still envy today. In fact, Elizabeth Taylor had seven men lavish her with jaw-dropping engagement rings.

In 1964, Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor's fifth husband, decided to break tradition and present her with an exquisite necklace of diamonds and emeralds instead of an engagement ring. But he caved four years later and purchased her most expensive and enormous diamond engagement ring she would ever own. (Elizabeth Taylor's amazing Asscher-cut, 33 carat diamond ring from Richard Burton is shown up close in the center photo at the top of this page.)
Then there are the unforgettable celebrity engagement rings we covet today. These include Kate Middleton's sapphire and diamond ring from Prince Charles. It's the very ring his beloved mother, Princess Diana, chose for her engagement to Prince Charles back in 1981. This enchanting ring created a world-wide demand for sapphire and diamond rings after both royal engagements.
