Is it just us, or have an awful lot of celebrities been getting engaged lately? As in, more than usual? Because it seems to us that at least a couple of times a week, we’re writing about this person getting engaged or that person secretly eloping. But you know what the best part of all these celeb engagements is? The rings, of course! We may not be able to afford these massive rocks ourselves, but we certainly love oozing over them anyway. So here you go, Bettys: From Anne Hathaway to Halle Berry, here are our favorite celeb engagement rings from the past couple of months. Get ready to drool!
1. Anne Hathaway
Anne Hathaway and Adam Schulman got engaged in November before finally letting us see the ring in December. Spotted at the New York premiere of The Iron Lady, the diamond is emerald-cut and set on a diamond-studded band. The best part? Adam went to Kwiat Jewelers to make it all happen—and Kwiat uses only certified conflict-free diamonds. Beautiful AND globally friendly!
2. Jessica Biel
It Jessica a while to get comfortable sporting her rock in public, but we’re sure glad she got there eventually—it’s a real stunner! It features scrolling rope-style sides, which give it that vintage feel, while the center diamond, which we suspect is either radiant- or princess-cut, is a might six carats. A jeweler talking to US Weekly estimated the price tag of the bling at $130,000. Wowzers!
3. Britney Spears
Jason Trawick went to celebrity jewelry Neil Lane when he decided to pop the question to the pop princess—and he wanted a ring FIT for a princess at that. As such, the sparkler is designed to look like a tiny tiara, with a white 3.5-carat diamond set in a handmade platinum setting that Lane described as “mini crown.” And if that wasn’t enough, 90 itty bitty round diamonds circle the handmade platinum setting. How’s that for some royal bling?
4. Courtney Robertson
Well, mean girl Courtney Robertson and Bachelor Ben Flajnik’s relationship may baffle us, but at least the ring is pretty? Or something Anyway, like Britney, Courtney’s ring was designed by Neil Lane, so it’s a pretty impressive piece of bling. It features a cushion-cut, 3-plus-carat diamond accented by 96 round-cut diamonds, with the whole thing set in platinum. The design has a leaf-and-floral motif, with three tulip leaves on each side of the ring. Naturally, it was pricey: $50,000, to be exact. What do you think? Will this romance last?
5. Halle Berry
Halle’s honey, French actor Olivier Martinez, decided to set aside the standard diamond in favor of something a little more unusual: A gorgeous green emerald. Designed by Robert Mazlo, the ring boasts a perfect emerald perched between two diamonds in a gold setting forged according to an ancient Phoenician tradition. There are also a whole bunch of tiny codes and symbols etched secretly into the surface that tell the couple’s story. How romantic!
