TMZ is estimating that the Lorraine Schwartz ring is worth a whopping $2 million. You can get a good look at the rock here. Could this be the blingiest ring in celebrity engagement history? Let’s compare.

Beyonce: When the diva does anything, it’s flashy. So it only makes sense that rapper Jay-Z gave the singer a flawless 18-carat diamond, also by Lorraine Schwartz. People estimated the ring’s worth at around $5 million.

Jennifer Lopez: The current “American Idol” judge has been engaged four times, with four opportunities to wear impressive jewelry. Actor Ben Affleck gave Lopez a 6-carat pink diamond when they were together, while Marc Anthony sealed the deal with an 8.5-carat diamond worth an estimated $4 million.

Paris Hilton: Although the heiress called off her 2005 engagement to Paris Latsis, she did get a 24-carat white diamond and a 21-carat canary diamond from the shipping heir before they split.

Elizabeth Taylor: If anyone was going to beat Kardashian, it would be the late Elizabeth Taylor. The screen legend, whose love of diamonds was well documented and immortalized by the name of her perfume, received a 33-carat ring as an engagement present from her two-time husband Richard Burton in 1968. He later gave the star a 69-carat stunner, which became known as the Taylor-Burton Diamond.
