Mariah Carey's 35-carat Wilfredo Rosado ring from James Packer
James Packer gifted Mariah Carey with an unbelievable masterpiece designed by Wilfredo Rosado. It boasts a massive emerald-cut diamond that reportedly weighs a whopping 35 carats, making it one of the largest celebrity engagement rings of all time.
Carey, a connoisseur of over-the-top jewellery, deserves this incredible stone worth $10 million (WE KNOW, RIGHT!). Its beauty lies in its sheer size and the flawless cut of the diamond that radiates an unmatched sparkle.
Unfortunately, after a messy break-up in 2018, Mariah Carey sold this ring to free herself from any emotional and material baggage from her past relationships.
Beyoncé's 18-carat flawless diamond ring from Jay-Z
A stunning 18-carat emerald-cut diamond, held in place by prongs set in a pavé split shank setting, brought Beyonce and Jay-Z together on their big day. Set in platinum, as suited for an award-winning artist, the shiny metal complements the sparkling diamonds, and the ring exudes elegance and class. Psst! We’ve heard the piece burnt a whopping $5 million hole in Jay-Z’s pocket – a drop in the ocean for the rapper, record producer, entrepreneur, and founder of Manhattan-based Roc Nation.
Kim Kardashian's 20-carat emerald cut diamond ring from Kanye West
Kim Kardashian’s 20-carat emerald cut diamond engagement ring from Kanye West epitomises beauty and excellence. The gorgeous ring features a rare and marvellous diamond perfectly cut in an elongated shape, complimenting Kim’s chic style. This ring is actually Kim’s second engagement ring with Kanye and has an estimated value of $4.5 million. The ring was unfortunately stolen from Kim during a robbery in 2016 and hasn’t been seen since.
