Famous Engagement Rings: Rocks that rocked the world!

We’re looking at some of the most famous engagement rings of all time, inspired by the recent engagement of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle and the spotlight falling on her exquisite three stone ring….

In her lifetime, Elizabeth Taylor married eight times (that’s a lot of rings!). But of all the massive baubles in the self-proclaimed jewellery fanatic’s trove, one of the most envy-worthy has to be the engagement ring from her third marriage to film and theatre producer Mike Todd.

He presented her with a 29.4ct emerald-cut diamond, and the rock is so huge that apparently Taylor adoringly referred to it as her “ice skating rink.”

Does Beyonce’s engagement ring from Jay Z remind anyone else of Elizabeth Taylor’s from Mike Todd? Bey’s 18 ct stunner is a dramatic, emerald-cut diamond by jeweller to the stars Lorraine Schwartz. A classic shape and simple band is made dramatic and bold by the incredible size and sparkle!
