Justin Timberlake put a ring on Jessica Biel, and now there’s actual photo evidence to prove it (click here to view). After months of speculation, the actress was finally spotted wearing her new bling while out to lunch at the Brentwood eatery Tavern in L.A. on March 8. And what a rock it is!
The ring — which Biel has rarely worn in public since her engagement to Timberlake was announced — features a large, slightly rounded square-cut diamond with smaller stones surrounding it, giving it a very vintage feel. And though the actual carat size is not yet known, it’s certainly ranks up there with some of the most impressive sparklers to ever grace a celeb’s finger.
But Biel isn’t the only Hollywood star who’s been found sporting such extravagant merchandise. In fact, it seems to be somewhat common among the entertainment crowd. Sorry fellas, but when it comes to engagement rings, size really does matter to these women.
During her short engagement to Kris Humphries in 2011, Kim Kardashian carted around a 20.5-carat engagement ring, which reportedly cost the NBA star a whopping $2.1 million. Yikes! Although, that’s nothing compared to Paris Hilton‘s famous 24-carat canary diamond ring, which her then-fiance Paris Latisis presented her with back in 2005.
Additionally, Christina Aguilera rocked a 20-carat sparkler that her now ex-husband Jordan Bratman proposed to her with on Feb. 11, 2005. Meanwhile, Mariah Carey and Beyoncé are currently sporting 17- and 18-carat rings from their respective hubbies: Nick Cannon and Jay-Z.
And, of course, you can’t say the word “diamond” without thinking of the great Elizabeth Taylor. The late actress received several engagement rings in her lifetime, given her eight marriages to seven different men. However, the most impressive rock was from her husband Michael Todd, who showered her with a 30-carat ring.
Indeed, for this legendary performer, diamonds really were a girl’s best friend.
