When it comes to celebrity bling, putting a ring on it never looked this good! Kim Kardashian received an awesome birthday surprise from rapper boyfriend Kanye West: a beautiful engagement ring! Check out the bling (and other celebrity rings!) below:
1. Celebrity Bling: Kim Kardashian
On the evening of her 33rd birthday, Kanye West popped the question by projecting the words, "Please marry me," onto the scoreboard in the San Francisco Giants' ballpark. The engagement bling is reportedly a 15 carat diamond ring.
2. Celebrity Bling: Naya Rivera
Naya Rivera looked incredible at our "Hollywood Hot List" party, but that engagement ring was the thing that made us do a double take. The square-cut sparkler is surrounded by smaller diamonds that only adds to its beauty. Good job, Big Sean!
3. Celebrity Bling: Alexa Vega
Wowee! The diamond sparkler that Carlos Pena chose for his fiancee Alexa Vega is beautiful, but it's also special as well: the Big Rush singer had apparently been designing it for months. Que romantico!
4. Halle Berry Wedding Ring
The Academy Award winner got herself a winner in new husband, Olivier Martinez – check out her new bling. About a year ago, the stunning actress received a “one of a kind, irreplaceable” emerald ring inlaid with diamonds from the 47-year-old actor of Spanish and French descent. Since tying the knot with Martinez last Saturday in France, the 46-year-old Berry finally debuted her new wedding ring for paparazzi to capture. The yellow-gold ring is about an equal width and, though low on bling, gain its shine from its texture.
We think Berry's ring is the perfect complement to her emerald ring. What do you think?
5. Engagement Ring: Alexis Bledel
Bledel is one lucky lady! The star showed off her octagonal-shaped diamond engagement ring during the premiere of Remembering Sunday yesterday night. Her Mad Men co-star and real life love interest Vincent Kartheiser proposed last month. A source told Us Weekly, "She's been wearing her ring. It's huge!" They weren't kidding!

Aguilera’s ex, Jonathan Bratman, went mad old school when he popped the question with a 5-carat diamond encased in platinum filigree and an elaborate proposal in a hotel room filled with rose petals, balloons and gift boxes. In each box was a poem written by Bratman. But when Christina opened the last box, the ring was in it, and Bratman got down on one knee and asked, "Will you do me the honor of being my wife?" They lasted five years, one for each carat.

Did you really think that the boho queen would go simple when it came time to design her own engagement ring before her nuptuals to Joel Madden? Perhaps simply wrap a twig around her ring finger? Not! She worked with jeweler Neil Lane on a round four-plus-carat ring surrounded by smaller diamonds forming an octagon.
