"Diamonds are a girl's best friend" Marilyn, apparently was right. Although the blonde bombshell was married three times, the poor girl didn't have nearly the diamond stash that today's celebrity crowd does. You can't open a magazine without seeing some celebrity's bling; diamonds in their hair, on their ears, around their necks on their teeth? It's true. But the biggest diamonds around are sitting lazily, perched atop celebrity fingers, while the rest of us are shielding our eyes from the glare.

They wear colored diamonds, emerald cuts, square cuts, cushion cuts. You name it, they've got it; and celebrities, well, they like to flaunt it. Here are the top ten celebrity diamond engagement rings and some pretty sweet proposals too.

  1. For her third engagement, actress Elizabeth Taylor sported an almost 30-carat, emerald cut ring. Academy-award winning producer Michael Todd probably didn't have to aim quite so high with the sparkler as Taylor's other 5 husbands were pretty heavy on the gifts as well.

  2. After a romantic trip to the French Riviera, Jay-Z popped the question to then single-lady, Beyonce. The hip-hop sensation gave his bride-to-be an 18-carat flawless diamond engagement ring worth a reported $5 million. "If you like it then you better put a ring on it", indeed.

  3. Even though the notoriously high maintenance model and actress, Elizabeth Hurley, couldn't stomach living in boyfriend Arun Nayar's home in India, the wealthy businessman gave her a rock anyway. After reportedly introducing Hurley to his family in Mumbai, Nayar proposed, handing over (drum roll please) a 15-Carat, Asscher cut diamond set in white gold.

  4. Reality star, Khole Kardashian is now sporting some serious jewels as then-fiance Lamar Odom proposed with a 9-carat radiant cut engagement ring with a pave band.

  5. Supermodel Heidi Klum was sporting a 12 carat canary yellow diamond on her left hand after recording artist, Seal proposed in the most unique proposal yet. Flying his German lovely to the top of a mountain in Whistler, British Columbia, Seal got down on one knee in a specially made igloo. Who would say no to that?

  6. Former Hollywood power-couple, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez (Bennifer) shared a couple of unfortunate movies and apparently, the same lavish taste. After picking out a 6-carat radiant cut pink diamond (pink diamonds are Lopez's favorite gem), Affleck had his engagement stunner custom made. Affleck surprised the singer formerly known as J-Lo while on a visit to Boston to meet Affleck's family. Even amid the rose petals and poetry, Jennifer herself admitted that the spectacular sparkler worth a reported $1 million was so mesmerizing and so pink, it was "too much" for her to handle.

  7. Not to be outdone by cutie Ben Affleck, Latin recording star Marc Anthony presented bodacious babe Jennifer Lopez with a square cut engagement ring worth over $1 million. At 8.5 carats, the ring was a late engagement gift as Anthony proposed within seconds of meeting Lopez but then married someone else, had kids, got divorced and then asked her again. A million dollar diamond should erase some of that baggage, right?

  8. Let's not forget about Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck. On the actress' 33rd birthday, Affleck presented her with a 4.5-carat, cushion cut diamond engagement ring. Pregnant with their first child, Garner accepted and now the couple have two beautiful daughters. Stay tuned for Marc Anthony's proposal to Ben Affleck. Just kidding.

  9. Die-hard romantic Tom Cruise presented his lady-love, Katie Holmes, with a sparkly 5-carat oval diamond set in platinum and rose gold. The Knight and Day star proposed at the top of the Eiffel Tower at the crack of dawn.

  10. Last but not least, Desperate Housewives star, Eva Longoria-Parker was surprised by Tony Parker when he got down on one knee in the midst of rose petals and candlelight. Parker proposed with a 5-carat emerald cut diamond ring with a staggering 247 accent diamonds.

Some of the marriages are fresh, some didn't last and one didn't even happen; but in true Hollywood fashion (even though all of these rings are worth more than the average person's house) the diamonds will last forever; embedded in images on the internet, red carpet events, and the flashy pages of trashy Hollywood magazines.
