From Princess Grace of Monaco, Duchess Kate, Marilyn Monroe, Jackie Kennedy, Liz Taylor and Beyonce, these six pricey engagement rings will make you swoon and make you wish for a Prince, President or rock star of your own.

Here’s 3 of the 6:

1- Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge: $500,000
Kate Middleton’s ring is a famous family heirloom, passed down from the late Princess Diana. Originally valued at $47,000, the ring—a 12-carat sapphire surrounded by 14 diamonds—is now valued at $500,000.

2- Marilyn Monroe: $772,500
Marilyn Monroe’s marriage to Yankee Joe DiMaggio may have been short-lived, lasting only eight months, but it birthed one of the most expensive diamond rings to date: A diamond eternity band, set in platinum and holding 35 baguette-cut diamonds. Minus one lost diamond, the ring was auctioned by Christie’s in 1999, fetching an eye-dropping $772,500.

3- Beyoncé: $5 Million
Queen Bey never does anything low-key—including her engagement ring from husband Jay-Z, an 18-carat whopper with two delicate silver bands from Lorraine Schwartz valued at $5 million.
