Another fine example of Lorraine Schwartz's work.

Some of her other rings include an eternity band, a pear cut diamond and heart-shaped diamond worth £1m, the most expensive of them all. We like this square emerald surrounded by diamonds.

Naturally, Kim K's 15-carat ring was designed by Kanye, with the help of Lorraine Schwartz, who happens to be the reality star's favourite jeweller and also a close friend. Kanye wanted it to look like it was floating on air and is said to have been involved in the whole process, even looking at the stones. The diamond is a type 2A, which is the most flawless you can get, and is said to be worth over £1m.
Does Julianne Hough's six-carat ring look familiar to you? That's because it was designed by Lorraine Schwartz, the jeweller behind Kim K's sparkler. The Dancing With The Stars judge and actress got engaged this summer to Brooks Laich, and said the ring makes her "feel very feminine and takes my breath away every time I look down, which I can’t stop doing, by the way. When it comes to taking it off, forget it. I’ll even wake up in the middle of the night to make sure it’s still there".<br /><br />To be fair, we would too!
