The best celebrity engagement rings of all time

These stunning celebrity engagement rings prove that a diamond—if not a marriage—is forever. But engagement rings haven’t always been all about the diamond: Roman brides were given a gold ring to wear in public and an iron ring to wear at home. In the 1700s, simple poesy rings were popular in Europe, while in New England, Puritan men—shunning frivolous rings—were thought to have given thimbles to their betrothed (though women often cut off the tops and wore them as rings anyway). Fast-forward to 1947 and De Beers’s famous slogan, “A diamond is forever.” The rest is history. Now we have everything from Elizabeth Taylor’s 33-carat diamond from Richard Burton (though it was just a gift, not an engagement bauble) to Kim Kardashian West’s 15-carat diamond from Kanye and Olivia Wilde’s brilliant emerald from Jason Sudeikis—ring inspiration galore from some of the dazzling gems sported by stars.
