Celebrities and their penchant for bling harkens back to the glamour days of old Hollywood when actresses like Elizabeth Taylor stole the silver screen from anyone who dared co-star with them. The celebrity affiliation with diamonds continues as few careers offer the opportunity to wear or purchase the types of gems that adorn the necks, fingers and ears of these beauties. Here are a few of the more memorable celebrities and their glamorous diamond treasures.
Elizabeth Hurley, actress, model and spokesperson for Estee Lauder, received a 15.09 Asscher cut diamond engagement ring from her then boyfriend Arun Nayar. The ring set in white gold was later accompanied by a wedding band with 20 square-cut diamonds with a total weight of 3.91 carats.
The late actress Brittney Murphy was honored by her fiancé with two engagement rings. The first was a 5 carat diamond yellow diamond surround by a ring of smaller white diamonds. The second was a 6.5-carat cushion cut diamond resting on a diamond-encrusted band.
Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebanks was at one time engaged to actor Nick Cannon who provided her with a 15-carat, cushion cut diamond Jacob & Co. engagement ring. Though the couple is no longer together, Selita got custody of the ring and if I were her, I would sell my diamond for cash!
The big diamond news in 2007 was the engagement ring Tracey Edmonds, entertainment producer and business mogul, received from fiancé Eddie Murphy. He presented her with an 8 carat Cartier yellow diamond.
