Celebrity Engagement Rings Are Getting Way Too Big (PHOTOS)

While we love that more stars are embracing modern wedding trends, such as colored gowns and smaller affairs, there's one celeb style trend we just can't get behind: the way-too-big engagement ring.

From JWoww's five carat boulder to Avril Lavigne's pear-shaped moon rock, these enormous stones look both impractical and over-the-top.

Yes, we're happy you're engaged (we love weddings!) but these rings don't prove that you're in love, they simply show the world you've got bucks to burn. Case in point: Kim Kardashian. She sported a massive 20.5 carat rock from Kris Humphries, and we all know how that marriage turned out. What we're saying is simple: the size of your ring doesn't correlate with the strength of your love. If you're happy with your giant bauble, great. But a smaller stone doesn't mean your marriage is doomed to fail.
