Victoria and David Beckham
The ring: A ?40,000 marquise-cut solitaire diamond from Van Cleef & Arpels, bought from a jeweller?s in Manchester.
The graft: Back in 1999, Becks? basic salary at Manchester United was ?1.35 million ? but that was nothing compared to his lucrative sponsorship deals. When you totted it all up, it would have taken him just 24 hours to earn the money to pay for this ring.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez
The ring: A ?700,000, six-carat pink solitaire diamond ring from Harry Winston.
The graft: The year he got engaged to J.Lo, Ben was already earning over ?5m per movie. To earn the money to pay for this famous ring, he needed to be on screen in road-rage drama Changing Lanes for just 14 minutes.
Jude Law and Sienna Miller
The ring: A ?20,000 gold ring with nine diamonds set in platinum.
The graft: Jude currently makes between ?4 and ?5 million per film ? so we calculate his ring for Sienna cost him a mere 30 seconds of Cold Mountain screen time.
Donald Trump and Melania Krauss
The ring: A 12-carat diamond ring from New York jewellers Graff worth ?1.5m ? which Donald got at the knockdown price of ?700,000.
The graft: This ring came in at exactly one tenth of Donald?s annual earnings – or just over one month?s worth . But when he was accused of stinginess, the billionaire retorted: ?Only a fool would say, ?No thank you, I want to pay a million dollars more for a diamond?.?
Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman
The ring: A ?30,000 20-carat diamond ring.
The graft: As the co-founder of Christina’s management company, Jordan is thought to earn around ?100,000. So while Ms Aguilera continues to be coy about her engagement, her fiancee has spent nearly four months? wages on a ring for her.
Britney Spears and Kevin Federline
The ring: A five-carat diamond ring which cost ?25,000.
The graft: As a dancer and model, Kevin is thought to earn around ?35,000 a year. But it?s been reported that Britney’s put him on her payroll ? and even that she paid for this ring herself! If Kevin was indeed a gent, though, this ring amounted to nearly nine months of his salary.
