Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but what happens when said diamonds cost upwards of $1 million and beyond? The 5 Most Expensive Engagement Rings Ever Made will enchant you. Luxury Safes presents you a nice list, complete with various cuts, colors, and carat weights.
The Vivid Yellow $16.3 million
If you love yellow, then this is the diamond luxury jewelry for you. The Vivid Yellow is humongous, and it is actually one of the largest cut diamonds in the world, across all colors. This one is the most expensive yellow diamond of all time, and was sold at a Sotheby’s Geneva auction of Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels. It looks like a tiny daffodil in both color and shape. It features two diamonds on the side, totaling more than 100 carats and looks like it would seriously weigh down someone’s hand! It also goes by the name “Dream Diamond,” and it is quite easy to see why.
The Winston Blue $23.8 million
The Winston Blue Diamond is named as such because Harry Winston jewelers named it. This is a flawless, vivid blue diamond ring; that biggest one in the whole entire world! This luxury jewelry piece is a whopper: 13.22 carats, a world record, and apparently worth nearly 24 million dollars. The teardrop-shaped diamond looks absolutely perfect (hence the whole “flawless” part, which pertains to its perfect clarity.) Moreover, it is one of the most expensive jewels you can find on a ring. Mined in South Africa, it is joined on both sides by two pear-shaped diamonds, weighing about 1 carat each.
The Graff Pink $46.2 million
The Graff Pink diamond ring was sold at a Sotheby’s auction in Hong Kong. This engagement ring fetched almost double the expected auction price! It was sold by Harry Winston, a famous jeweler who let it go sixty years ago. During all those years, this most expensive ring has been kept hidden, but it recently was sent home with a bidder in Asia. The diamond is 24.78 carats of luxury and elegance, and its hardly ever found pink color is to die for!
Pink Star Diamond Ring $72 million
This is a 72-million-dollar diamond ring. Therefore, we can totally believe the news that the buyer with the highest bid at auction had to rescind his bid because he couldn’t afford it. The record-setting diamond was originally sold to Isaac Wolf. Mined in Africa, the diamond looks like a huge scarab beetle, but it is indeed a pink diamond. Also called The Pink Dream, it is a national treasure and comes in at 59.60 carats with perfect clarity. It is an oval-shape stone and underwent polishing and cutting for two years to achieve the perfect look. Originally, this most expensive diamond was 132.5 carats in its natural state.
Wittelsbach-Graff Diamond $80 million
And finally, the Wittelsbach-Graff Diamond Most Expensive Ring. $80 million. Yes, you read that right. It is 31.06 carats, a deep-blue color, and boasts perfect clarity. Three different experts worked on cutting the diamond to get it just right. Discovered at the end of the 17th century in the Kollur Mine Guntur District of India, it originally belonged to King Philip IV of Spain. The oval-cut diamond was looked at by thousands upon thousands of people at the National Museum of Natural History, and it also belonged at one point to the Austrian and Bavarian Crown Jewels.
