Is bigger better when it comes to the size of your engagement rock? These are celebrities are in the Yes Camp

When 'money is no object' as Justin Bieber puts it when quizzed by the paps on his engagement to Hailey Baldwin, well... enter the OTT diamond rings. The on-again-off-again pair took their relationship to the next level last July, and consequently blew up the social media-verse with their news. The heat hasn't died down any, thanks to Baldwin nonchalantly swanning out and about to be seen with the ostentatious diamond on her finger (also likely due to related Google searches on Selena Gomez's reactions).

Reportedly worth half a million dollars, the massive solitaire sat on an 18K gold band was exactly the ring of her dreams as the future Mrs Bieber famously tweeted once upon a time that "if my ring isn't as big as Blake Lively's, I don't want to get married". Rousing our inner magpies, we hopped on over the Gossip Girl alum's Instagram for a look-see, and lo and behold, both Baldwin's and Lively's rings were uncannily similar. Which got us to thinking: Who are the celebrities with totally extra engagement bands that out-bling even royalty?

Here's the who's who when it comes to jaw-dropping rings, if you want some inspiration in case you're shopping:

BLAKE LIVELY

 

The stone is... 12 carats (that'll be the oval-cut solitaire on her third left finger)
The estimated cost: $2.5 million

BEYONCÉ

Beyonce wedding ring

The stone is... 18 carats
The estimated cost: $5 million

CIARA

 

The stone is... 15 carats
The estimated cost: $1.5 million

KIM KARDASHIAN

Kim Kardashian wedding ring

The stone is... 15 carats
The estimated cost: $4.5 million (to be clear, this one's from husband Kanye West. It's more than twice the cost of the ring from her marriage to Kris Humphries)

MARIAH CAREY

 

The stone is... 35 carats
The estimated cost: $10 million (to be clear again, this one's from her ill-fated engagement to billionaire James Packer)
