Jennifer Aniston Joins Hollywood's Biggest Engagement Bling Club (GALLERY)


After getting engaged in August, Jennifer Aniston is finally flaunting the cherry on top — her blinding engagement bling!

The actress debuted the super-sized diamond on Saturday during a loved-up moment with fiancé Justin Theroux in Sante Fe, N.M., where she is currently shooting her upcoming comedy We're the Millers.

From the looks of it, Theroux shelled out in a big way for his blushing bride-to-be. Aniston’s awe-inpiring ring is a radiant-cut solitaire, with a center gemstone of about eight or nine carats, according to jeweler Peter Meksian, who speculated about the sparkler to Celebuzz.

Does the rock land Aniston in Hollywood's 20-carat club?

It seems she falls just shy. Though Aniston, 43, and Theroux, 41 — who began dating in May 2011 after meeting on the set of Wanderlust — have yet to reveal the ring's designer, cost or total carat weight, another expert estimated the bauble boasts anywhere from 12 to 18 carats total.

And in Hollywood, Aniston is in good company with her jaw-dropping diamond. Before Kim Kardashian's 72-day marriage crumbled, the reality star was rocking a 20.5-carat engagement ring. When Jay-Z finally popped the question to longtime love Beyoncé, the hip-hop went big with a 18-carat ring. And who can ever erase the blinding sight of Mariah Carey's 17-carat, pink-diamond bauble from their brain?

So as Aniston fans wait with bated breath for the next spotting of her sparkler, Celebuzz is looking back at Hollywood's biggest engagement bling from over the years.

Look through the gallery of gigantic diamonds and weigh in: Which celebrity went over the top with their ring?

    I like to think any woman who has a man that wants her to feel special ought to afford to do so. There's no doubt that wearing a chunk of rock worth millions of dollars set atop a gold or platinum band on your finger would impart a sense of "I'm one of a kind"...but in my experience, a man who loves a woman can give a cubic zirconia engagement ring for a fraction of the cost, and in many cases save the money over buying diamond and put it towards the couple's future in another more prudent way. Some of our CubicZirconia.com customers actually let us know they buy a car or vacation home with the difference in price between CZ and diamond! Still, great list and it's fun to dream "if money was no object"!
