For Kanye West’s sake, let’s hope Kim Kardashian doesn’t read this!
While true love may be priceless, the value of an engagement ring can be measured by an appraisal. An engagement ring given to Elizabeth Taylor by her two-time husband, Richard Burton, is the world’s most expensive engagement ring valued at $8.8 million, FinancesOnline.com reports.
The ring, a 33.19-carat Asscher-cut Krupp diamond, is the most chemically pure type of diamond available, being a Type IIa-certified diamond. It is the glitziest of rings shown in the article by Alex Hillsberg: the “10 Most Expensive Engagement Rings.”
…. Well, money can’t buy you to royalty, but it can buy you to the top of our list, which was what Richard Burton must have been thinking when he gave his ring to Elizabeth Taylor. How much is it worth? Let’s just say it’s worth as much as about fifty 2013 Bentleys.
