Not many can resist the urge to snap an engagement ring selfie (or two...) when they first get engaged—even if the person in question is used to getting their photograph taken on the daily. Yes, even celebrities can't resist all the Instagram likes their new bling will bring. Stars, they're just like us, right?
The past year saw its fair share of exciting celeb engagements, which means we had to always have our sunnies on hand for some seriously sparkly selfies. With all the jaw-dropping gems, fun colors, and cool cuts of these now-famous rings, we couldn't help but double-tap.
So that you could join in on the fun, we've rounded up the best celebrity engagement rings and selfies from the past 365 days for your viewing pleasure. With sparklers this spectacular, you know this means that some equally over-the-top weddings are on the horizon (a.k.a. the long-awaited royal wedding!).
Behold, in no particular order, the best celebrity engagement rings of 2017. Warning—major ring envy will inevitably ensue.
1. Meghan Markle
First and foremost, bride-to-be Meghan Markle's sparkler will go down in engagement ring history. Designed by Prince Harry himself, the three-stone stunner includes a center diamond from Botswana surrounded by two side diamonds from his late mother, Princess Diana. Dreaming of having your own? See how you can get the look here.
2. Cassey Ho
The fitness guru got engaged in August, and little did she know, together her sister and future groom had been designing her gorgeous sparkler. Ho told her sister she wanted a nontraditional ring that looked like a rose on a vine, and her wish was granted beyond her expectations.
3. Sophie Turner
The Game of Thrones actress is already one lucky lady for landing everyone's favorite teen heartthrob, Joe Jonas. But, to top it off, Jonas proposed with a jealousy-inducing pear-cut diamond on a double band with studded pavé stones, and an estimated price tag of $150,000 (no, that's not a typo).
4. Kaley Cuoco
Cuoco's fiancé, Karl Cook, popped the question with a big bang on her 32nd birthday. Her engagement ring features a jaw-dropping pear-shaped diamond, and Cook described it as "the greatest ring I could hope for." Considering the bride's epic meltdown on Instagram when Cook presented it to her, we're thinking Cuoco's a fan too!
5. Kirsten Dunst
This beloved blonde beauty quietly got engaged to fellow actor and Fargo costar Jesse Plemons earlier this year. While she didn't take to Instagram to show off her bling, engagement suspicions were officially confirmed when Dunst accessorized her outfit for the Palm Springs Film Festival with the magnificent bauble on her left ring finger. The oval-cut ring features a yellow gold mounting (step aside, rose gold).
6. Janel Parrish
The Pretty Little Liars actress's ring is so fab, a meager photo can't do it justice. I mean, check out the sparkle on that baby. The glacier-sized diamond has an emerald cut with little pink stones on the surrounding band.
7. Cardi B
If there was an award for the biggest, baddest ring of 2017, the "Bodak Yellow" singer's would take the cake, hands down. The 25-year-old filterless female rapper has never been known for having a particularly understated style, and her engagement ring perfectly reflects that. This is one upcoming assumedly lavish wedding we can't wait to see.
8. Caroline Wozniacki
Coming in at a close second for the largest sparkler, this tennis star's Instagram ring selfie reached over 123,000 likes, and it's obvious why. Her fiancé, former San Antonio Spurs player David Lee, earned MVP status when he gifted her this super-sized sparkler.
9. Rachel Lindsay
ICYMI on national TV, the Bachelorette star found love with contestant and her current fiancé Bryan Abasolo, who popped the question on air with an exquisite Neil Lane number. Lindsay wore a simple gold band on her left ring finger as a placeholder engagement ring while the show aired. Her new permanent jewelry situation features a three-carat diamond surrounded by EIGHTY smaller diamonds.
10. Meryl Davis
The Dancing with the Stars contestant and ice skating champ got engaged to Fedor Andreev, a former figure skater, in July. Davis's bling features a unique square-cut canary-yellow diamond.
11. Katie Cassidy
Featuring one of the coolest diamond shapes to date, the Arrow star got engaged to boyfriend Matthew Rodgers this past June. Her coveted engagement ring has a Marquise-shaped diamond that we can't take our eyes off.
12. Michelle Branch
Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney popped the question to this singer/songwriter on her 34th birthday with a sparkler that toted an art-deco twist on standard engagement ring styles, featuring four diamonds. Good luck topping that birthday present next year.
13. Christina Perri
The singer surprisingly tied the knot with Paul Costabile on December 13 rather unconventionally, sporting a black dress and boots. Perri's engagement ring matched her alternative style, with a V-shaped band and a round-cut diamond. While the couple most likely had a small civil ceremony, Costabile promised on Instagram that there will be an "official shindig coming soon." Here's hoping they at least dance to "A Thousand Years."
14. Holly Marie Combs
The former Charmed actress's engagement ring is truly bewitching, featuring another marquise-cut diamond with smaller halo and pavé diamonds on the surrounding band. This bride-to-be got engaged over Labor Day weekend.
15. Malin Akerman
This has to be the happiest engagement selfie ever taken, with an all-smiles Akerman flaunting her dark-stoned ring. The 27 Dresses actress will get her turn at saying I do IRL to British beau Jack Donnelly.
16. LeToya Luckett-Walker
After a quick four-month engagement, the former Destiny's Child singer just said "I do" to her new husband, Tommicus Walker, in a Vera Wang dress that's just as extravagant as her engagement ring.
17. Chiara Ferragni
When you propose to an Italian fashion designer and lifestyle blogger, you know the engagement ring has to be on point. Such was the case when Italian rapper Fedez proposed to Ferragni, who heads the Blonde Salad. The beautifully simple white gold sparkler features a large round solitaire diamond.
While not all of us can have celebrity-caliber engagement rings, they sure are fun to look at!
