Mostly used as celebrity engagement rings, the most expensive rings in the world feature massive diamonds and retail for more than most of us will make in a lifetime. Forget the half-carat rings you spent three months salary on, these extravagant rings will set you back no less than $2 million.
The most expensive ring in the world includes a huge diamond, but like several others on this list, it’s not white. The Chopard Blue Diamond Ring comes with white diamonds but the main attraction is a ginormous light blue oval diamond. Add in an 18-carat white gold band and this ring sells for just $16.26 million. That’s just one of the Chopard engagement rings that will put you in debt for life.
If that’s just a bit out of your price range, or if blue is not your color, fortunately there are many other options. Take the Graff Diamonds pink diamond ring for example. Sold over the phone at a Hong Kong auction, this sparkler is much more affordable, only selling for $10.8 million.
As fancy and spectacular as these rings are, men, it’s probably a good idea to keep your lady friends away from this list. That is of course unless you don’t want that overwhelming look of disappointment when you pop the question with a much smaller rock later on. You’ve been warned.
