The 18-carat diamond, made by jeweler Lorraine Schwartz, is emerald-cut and set in a platinum band. For security purposes, the singer wears a fake copy of it, which is still worth more than $5,000.

5. Natalie Portman: In 2010, Famous actress, vegan and humanist Natalie Portman was gifted an eco-friendly engagement ring to fit her lifestyle.

Millepied personalized his choice by making the ring a statement to his love's activism and loving nature, a sweet statement for an even sweeter couple.
