The Two Rules for Celebrity Engagement Rings: Big and Shiny


If you’re shopping for celebrity engagement rings, check with Sofia Vergara about diamond size.

The 40-year-old “Modern Family” star says the one she just got from her on-again-off-again love of the past four years, Nick Loeb, is just right:
“It is perfection,” the Colombian-born actress says in the November issue of Lucky magazine. “If it was bigger, it would be too big to wear. But if it was smaller, I would not like.”
Lucky describes Vergara’s diamond engagement ring as the size of a Chicklet … which probably fits her love-of-luxury lifestyle to a tee.
Vergara and her ring have been drawing as many admiring glances and celebrity-magazine articles as anybody lately.
She’s also featured on, which is showing off “10 of the biggest, priciest, shiniest celeb engagement rings” in a separate article.

As the story’s title suggests, size probably matters a little more than we’d like to admit. At least to celebrities like Beyonce, Paris Hilton and Mariah Carey, who are among those pictured lugging around diamonds the size of postage stamps.
But don’t despair, guys.
Unless you’re dating a celebrity, your beloved probably isn’t going to surprise you with a Benz or a getaway weekend in St. Lucia. And the size ring she’ll be looking for from you will likely be less important to her than the depth of your love.
The “love” part is up to you, but contact us when you’re ready for some help with the ring — even if you happen to catch Ms. Vergara on the rebound somehow.
