Dreamgirls dream big—and so are their engagement rings! When reality star David Otunga proposed to Jennifer Hudson last week, he presented her with this platinum Neil Lane engagement ring that features a 5-carat center stone.

Red carpet staple and jeweler to the stars, Neil Lane has created engagement rings and wedding bands for countless other celebrities, and recently told us, "Girls want to have sparkle on their band. They love having diamonds that go all the way around their band. It's very elegant and sexy." —Cari Wolfert

Wedding Wisdom: After calling your parents and best buds to share the exciting news of your engagement, call your insurance company. Put your ring on your homeowner's policy as soon as possible in case something happens to it. Your fiancé should have a certificate of appraisal so you know what rate to insure it at. And don't forget to renew the policy every year. The chance of you losing your ring, having it stolen or having the center stone fall out may be slim, but do you really want to take that chance?
