Let the Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie engagement ring comparisons begin. US Weekly's bling experts surveyed Aniston's sparkler from her beau Justin Theroux: "It looks like a radiant cut center diamond, approximately 8 carats [...] Estimated price tag for a top quality diamond of this size: $500,000." Jolie's tablet-shaped diamond ring from Aniston's ex Brad Pitt is about 16 carats and worth approx. $500,000, too. While impressive, neither of these rocks are as massive as Kim Kardashian's Lorraine Schwartz stunner from Kris Humphries, weighing in at a whopping 20 carats. [US Weekly; Previously]
