Earlier this month, FinancesOnline.com released a very interesting infographic, linked to one of The Parisian Eye’s favourite topics: jewelry. The nice, well documented and illustrated infographic shows the top 10 most expensive engagement rings.
From Kate Middleton to Elisabeth Taylor (both featured in the current Cartier exhibition in Paris), it is not a surprise that some of the most famous women in the world appear in the infographic. It was also interesting to see that Grace Kelly’s engagement ring (also on display at the Cartier exhibition) appears in the Top 10.
The infographic answers some interesting questions like:
Which Hollywood celebrity owned a diamond engagement ring worth $8.8 million and beat Beyonce to the first place on the list?
How much is Kate Middleton’s engagement ring worth? Not as much as you’d think!
Which famous celebrity owned a $2.6 million diamond ring, but wore it only twice and then locked it in a bank vault?
