Celeb-of-the-moment Cardi B boasts a ring worth of $550,000, according to TMZ. Her fiancé Offset reportedly requested for it to be shaped like a raindrop, perhaps as a nod to the oft-repeated (at least in 2016) line “raindrop, drop top” from his group Migos’ hit song “Bad and Boujee.”

Emily Ratajkowski kicked off the 2018 trend of surprise engagements when she married Sebastian Bear-McClard in New York City Hall early this spring, despite the general public having no clue they were engaged.

The unique ring features two diamonds — one square and one pear-shaped — side by side. So what’s it worth? Most likely between $50,000 to $90,000, according to Brilliant Earth’s VP of strategy and merchandising Kathryn Money. She didn’t create the ring but shared her educated guess with Page Six.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, wears an engagement ring whose cultural and emotional significance probably outweighs its price. The former Kate Middleton’s sapphire engagement ring once belonged to her husband’s late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales.

When Prince Charles proposed to then-Lady Diana in 1981, the ring was reportedly valued at $47,000. Today, though, it’s estimated to be worth $100,000 due not only to its 12-carat sapphire and 14 diamonds but also its significance, according to E! News.

Legend has it that Victoria Beckham is gifted a new engagement ring every year by her husband David Beckham, but she’s never confirmed as much and hey, maybe she just owns a lot of rings.

The engagement ring she wore from the time of Becks’ proposal to their marriage, however, was a comparatively slight marquise-cut ring, according to Harper’s Bazaar. Becks presented it to her in 1998 and it’s estimated to be worth $85,000.

Elizabeth Taylor’s favorite ring fetched $8.8 million at auction.

Elizabeth Taylor got married so many times (eight, to be exact), her partners stopped giving her rings and switched to other types of jewelry. This trend emerged around the time of husband number four.

But Taylor’s third husband, Mike Todd, presented her with her most spectacular engagement ring: a 29.4-carat emerald cut diamond, according to The Knot. Estimates for the value of this ring are sadly not available.

That might be because it’s usually upstaged by another one of her rings which, funnily enough, isn’t even an engagement ring. As a gift, Richard Burton presented Taylor with a 33.19-carat Asscher-cut number known as the Elizabeth Taylor diamond. According to Worthy, it fetched $8.8 million at auction, so it was technically worth more than the ring she got from Todd. For their actual engagements (yes, there were two), Burton presented her with other types of jewelry — not rings.

And in case you’re counting, Taylor’s entire jewelry collection went for $116 million at auction in 2011.
