Ever Wondered What Beyoncé's Engagement Ring Looks Like? It's Fit For a Queen, of Course
When it comes to celebrity wedding bling, it doesn't really get any better than Beyoncé's engagement ring. Designed by jeweler to the stars Lorraine Schwartz, the sparkler is a 24-carat flawless emerald-cut diamond ring with a split band, which is estimated to be worth a whopping $5 million.
While incredibly glamorous, the ring is also a timeless piece that just goes with everything, and it would give any red carpet jewels a run for their money. Queen Bey has been wearing it since Jay-Z proposed over 10 years ago, and it is so special that it deserves to be admired from every angle.
While some celebrities have gone the extra mile by either slightly tweaking their original rings or building a whole collection of them over time (we're looking at you and your 14 different styles, Victoria Beckham), others like Beyoncé have simply stayed faithful to the original ring they were given — and once you get a closer look at the queen-worthy diamond, you'll understand why nothing else would have topped it.
Ahead, zoom in on some of the times Beyoncé gave us a peek at her incredible engagement ring. If it's a style that has you dreaming of your own happy ending, then why not shop a similar version for yourself? We found different pieces at a variety of price points that we think she would approve of.
