The World's First Diamond Ring is brilliant in every sense of the word. It is made entirely out of a diamond rock, with no hint of silver, gold or platinum in sight. A marvel to behold, it almost looks like the chunky plastic rings that were popular with tweens back in the early 2000s. Except that this ring boasts a whopping 150 carat diamond.

Uniquely crafted by Shawish Jewelery, a jeweler based in Geneva, Switzerland, the World's First Diamond Ring is priced at an astounding $68 million. Perhaps if Kris Humphries had got down on one knee with this sparkler instead of his paltry $2 million, 20.5 carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring, then he and Kim Kardashian would still be happily married.
