When it comes to celebrity engagements, we’ve come to expect ginormous rings. But when lucky ladies — ahem, Amal Alamuddin and Kim Kardashian — receive blinding stunners that should come with a ring-finger workout video, that’s when we get downright jealous. Here are six of our all-time favorites:

Beyonce's 18 carat diamond ring is quite the stunner. The emerald-cut stone reaches nearly all the way to her knuckle, telling us it might be time to start flexing those ring finger muscles.

Elizabeth Taylor

Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor's fifth husband, gave her the infamous Krupp diamond ring, considered one of the world's most flawless diamonds. Her knuckles are nearly non-existent next to her rock.

Leave it to George Clooney to choose an elegant ethically-mined emerald-cut diamond for Amal, estimated at seven carats -- and $750,000!

Jennifer Aniston

Justin proposed to Jennifer with a eight carat center stone diamond. While the ring, totaling around 12 to 18 carats, looks bulky, some say it's not the size -- it's simply the setting. The size seems pretty large, if you ask us!

Angelina Jolie

While Angelina's ring almost looks modest next to some of the other sparklers here, don't be fooled -- Brad Pitt gave her a 16 carat rock!

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
