You might need sunglasses to play this guessing game! Whether you’re fantasy shopping for yourself or just plain fascinated by geology, you’ve probably noticed that famous ladies are getting engagement rings the size of asteroids these days. They’re not just big, though. From Ciara to Olivia Wilde to Kim Kardashian, these women are inspiring their men to get super creative with their vintage-inspired, custom-designed, envy-inducing rings. Now it’s our turn to pop a question: How closely have you been paying attention to the rings on the latest crop of engaged celebrities? Flip through below to test yourself!
So, we fully admit we totally didn’t know that Jamie Lynn Spears was dating anyone, because her famous sister, Britney Spears, took up all our brain space. But Jamie has now left the dating pool behind to become engaged to her boyfriend, 30-year-old Jamie Watson. Yes, they share the same name. Jamie squared have been dating for three years proving a nine-year time different ain’t nothing. Jamie — lady Jamie, that is — excitedly tweeted out the photo you so above, writing, “Guesssss what??????” And if you’d like a close-up of the rock, you can see it right here. Britney for Maid of Honor, for the win! Congratulations to Jamie and Jamie! They look really happy!

Wait a minute. Wait just a damn minute. While re-watching Rihanna’s showstopping performance of “Stay” at the 2013 Grammys for the 424,123th time, we found our eyes drawn to the ring on her hand that, yes, shone bright like a diamond. Earlier on the red carpet Riri had rocked tons of finger bling, but how she wore just this simple diamond band on her left ring finger, more commonly known as the “wedding finger”. Errr, is there something we don’t know? Did she and boyfriend Chris Brown make the engagement jump?
Earlier this week, we told you about how Miley Cyrus referred to her boyfriend/fiance/superstud Liam Hemsworth as her “hubby” in an interview with Cosmopolitan. The quote sparked an untold number of rumors suggestion that the power-couple have already tied the knot without us catching on. Well, it turns out we missed a crucial part of the interview: She actually straight up said she was married, y’all! “I’m happy I don’t have to date anyone,” she said within the pages. And later on while telling an anecdote she dropped another glaring hint nugget: “‘I’m so happy I’m married, because you guys are so cruel!'”
OK, so she might have just taken a conversational short cut, and what she meant to say was “I’m so happy that I’m about to get married in the very near future.” But that’s kind of a mouthful, no? A rep for Hemsworth strenuously denied the wedding bell buzz to People, saying that they are “definitely NOT married.”
But hey, reps deny stuff all the time. And it doesn’t explain those Twitpics from Christmas that showed Miley and Liam wearing matching rings. And it really doesn’t explain why those same photos mysteriously vanished soon after being posted! Did Miley and Liam get married in secret? It wouldn’t be the first time in Hollywood history. Head on down to the gallery below and see 20 other famous couples who got hitched on the super DL!

Kelly Osbourne is getting married! At least according to a report in Us Weekly, that is. And we owe her a long overdue congrats, because apparently she’s been engaged to boyfriend Matthew Mosshart since before Christmas! “Kelly is the happiest she’s ever been,” a source told the magazine today. “Her career is going well, and she’s in a healthy relationship with a wonderful guy.” A summer wedding is planned in Britain, with friends saying that the two are “really excited.” Well let’s hope so!
Kelly met the at Kate Moss’s wedding to Jamie Hince in July of 2011, and they started dating soon after. She credits her vegan chef beau for her recent 60-pound weight loss! “I love Matthew and we love to work out together – we motivate one another,” she said in an interview published in the Daily Mail. “I go on the treadmill every day for half an hour and do two hours of exercise if I have a special event.” There’s no official word yet from their pair’s rep about the plans to wed, and it’s worth noting that Kelly wasn’t rockin’ any kind of new engagement rock on the Golden Globe red carpet last week. But we’ll be sure to keep you posted.

Shame on us forgetting the piercing blue eyes and adorable smile of Kyle XY star Matt Dallas. Happy 2013 to us. Oh, and to Dallas too. Apparently he rang in the new year by both publicly announcing his engagement and the fact his beloved is a man in one convenient tweet! “Starting off the year with a new fiance, @bluehamilton. A great way to kick off 2013!” the actor gushed along with a photo of his musician boyfriend. On top of that, Matt’s tweet also introduced the world to the cutest dog alive and his little monkey friend. What can’t 140 characters do?
Congratulations on what seems to be your engagement, NeNe Leakes! And congrats to all your conspiracy theorists out there, too. This must be a field day for you. “My answer was,” the Real Housewives of Atlanta star hinted on Twitter yesterday. “Yes.” She also posted photos of the romantic evening planned by her ex-husband Gregg Leakes. It makes sense that people would assume she was referring to an engagement. The idea that NeNe and Gregg are going to get married specifically to up RHOA ratings and “a spinoff “wedding show” on Bravo,” however? Significantly less sense.
On one hand, claims that NeNe’s engagement is a reality TV stunt is ridiculous. NeNe is far too successful (The New Normal? Glee? Come on, people!) to fake a marriage to a man she does not want to be married to. On the other hand, if her engagement was part of a scheme to achieve world dominance, we have to bow to NeNe’s superior goal-attaining skills. We’ve already given up on our diet and we started that twelve hours ago. To fabricate a relationship to potentially get a reality show would be the ultimate New Year’s resolution. Let’s meet back here next January 2, 2014 and see who was right!

It’s that time of year again, when all sorts of engagement and wedding news starts coming in as celebrities escape to warm, romantic getaways. The latest is the engagement of Boy Meets World alum Rider Strong to his longtime girlfriend Alexandra Barreto. According to E! Online, Rider proposed with a ring he created himself.
Strong and Barreto met on the short-lived 2006 WB comedy Pepper Dennis, in which he played a cameraman and she played the weather girl and nemesis of star Rebecca Romijn. They also had a super-cute bit together in this 2008 Web ad for Barack Obama.
We’ve all been waiting for a different kind of news from Rider — that he’d be joining the cast of Girl Meets World, the Disney Channel spinoff of the beloved ’90s show — but as of November, he said he had no “official” involvement in it. Hey, Alexandra, is there anything you can do to convince him otherwise?

Congrats, Kat Von D and Deadmau5. After dating since September, and breaking up in November, the electronic musician and legendary tattoo artist are engaged. But we really, really hope that Deadmau5, a.k.a. Joel Zimmerman, was a bit more romantic than meets the eye. As in, we hope he asked her in person before posting this Twitpic:
If the rumors are true, Kat Graham is having the best year ever. E! Online reports that Cottrell Guidry, boyfriend of the Vampire Diaries witch/infectious pop star, posted and then deleted their engagement announcement on Facebook. He also recently posted an Instagram of his feet and dog with the caption #WaitingforWifey, which some are taking as a confirmation.
