Diamonds are some of the most valuable substances in the world. It would only stand to reason therefore that some of the most prized pieces of jewellery are those that feature diamonds prominently in their design. And indeed, when you talk about the most expensive wedding rings in existence,either expensive wedding rings for men or expensive wedding rings for women, you can bet that diamonds are almost certain to be front and center of the design.
There are many reasons why diamonds are held in such high-regard. They are exceedingly rare substances for one thing, and it takes a very special set of circumstances to produce diamonds of even passable quality. As for the diamonds that are considered among the finest in the world, the environmental factors that have conspired to produce them simply boggle the mind.
But more than just dollar value, diamonds signify some things that cannot be expressed any other way. Long regarded as the standard against which nearly all precious items are compared, diamonds often hold a greater value than that which can be measured in currency.
Nevertheless, diamonds are often judged according to value. Considering the fact that diamonds signify love, commitment, and high esteem, we present here a list of top 10 most expensive wedding rings in existence.
