Who’s rocking the better ring?

Jennifer Aniston V. Angelina Jolie

From their penchant for black dresses and leggy looks to Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie always seem to be going head-to-head — in fact, they both got engaged just months apart! The news broke that Angie would wed Jen’s former hubby, Brad, back in April, while Jen’s new man, Justin Theroux, popped the question in August. It may be a race to the alter for these stars, but we want to know who YOU think is rocking the nicer engagement ring.

Even though Jen’s engagement is old news, the coy star kept her brand new bling under wraps — until now! The 43-year-old star debuted her giant love rock, (which weighs in at approximately 10 carats), in Santa Fe this weekend. The stone, set on a gold band, certainly commanded a lot of attention — and it couldn’t have been any more different than Angelina’s! While Jen’s ring is mainly focused on one large, center stone, Angie’s is made up of an oblong stone surrounded by ribbed diamonds — and it also weighs in at approximately 10 carats on a yellow gold band! Brad worked closely with the jeweler on crafting the custom sparkler.

Whose engagement ring do You like more?

AVRIL LAVIGNE VS. MILEY CYRUS

A few months ago, news broke that Miley Cyrus was engaged to her actor BF Liam Hemsworth. While this came as a slight shocker, given that both Miley and Liam are still very young, it didn’t make our jaws drop like the news of Avril Lavigne‘s engagement to Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger… can you say “random?”

After announcing their engagements, both Avril and Miley showed off their engagement rings to the press. The songstress’ rings are very different and very beautiful, but whose engagement ring suits your taste more?

Before getting down on one knee to propose, Chad Kroeger bought his lady love Avril a monster of a rock. Her ring, which is pictured on the left above, is “platinum-set pear-shape diamond with half moons totaling 14 carats from XIVKARATS in Beverly Hills,” according to PEOPLE. It’s Avril’s dream ring, and even though this engagement news came way out of left field (who knew they were even dating?!), we couldn’t be happier for the ‘What the Hell’ hit maker.

Meanwhile, ‘Hunger Games’ star Liam Hemsworth went a very different route while picking out Ms. Miley’s engagement bling (picture on the right). Her ring was designed by famed jeweler Neil Lane, and it’s not the typical engagement ring you’d see nowadays, since it’s yellow gold… but Miley is not one to go for the “conventional.” Her cushion-cut, 3.5 carat diamond is much smaller than Lavigne’s, but the “Art-Nouveau” band on the sparkler also encases several smaller diamonds.
