When your favorite celebrity announces a new relationship, it doesn’t take long for us to be sitting on the edge of our seats, waiting for their engagement announcement. Usually, the appearance of a massive rock on a celebrity’s ring finger is a dead give away that they plan on getting married.

But none were more coveted than the ring gifted to her by Richard Burton. The massive ring featured a rock so enormous it weighed in at a whopping 33- carats! That’s so big it was the size of an ice cube!
Princess Diana and Prince Charles
Possibly one of the most iconic rings in history, Princess Diana’s sapphire ring has gone n to inspire thousands of couples.
Diana went against royal tradition when she chose the ring from a catalog instead of having one custom made. The 18-karats-white-gold and sapphire ring were then given to Kate Middleton when Prince William proposed. It seems this iconic ring is now a beautiful royal heirloom that will be passed on for generations.
Beyonce and Jay-Z
Following a fairytale romance, Beyonce and Jay-Z decided to mark their engagement with an incredible ring. Beyonce’s flawless diamond ring features a staggering 18-carat octagon-cut diamond.
A ring that large is reportedly worth $5 million and is so large it can easily be spotted from the crowd. Queen B petty hope she never gets pushed in a pool because with this ring on, she may sink!
