Yo ho ho, it's a summer Friday—almost a summer Saturday! No better day to kill some time at work browsing impossibly gigantic diamonds. Today, as part of Weddings Week here at Racked, we're bringing you seven of David Yurman's biggest, boldest, and most expensive diamond engagement ring styles—like this Crossover engagement ring, above, which is priced starting at $7,500.
All of David Yurman's rings are custom-made for the bride-to-be, so keep in mind that prices vary according to carat weight and precious metal. All rings shown here are platinum (unless they're obviously yellow gold, in which case they're 18k).
This Gallery Cable engagement ring starts at $10,000. We like how it's conservative and genteel looks, but has a stealth band of pave diamonds underneath—secret luxury!
This Halo engagement ring starts at $6,000. A simple, single-band diamond ring with the David Yurman twist—literally, the cable band is a signature of the jewelry house. It kind of gives the ring that little extra something, don't you think?

This Diamond Crossover engagement ring starts at $11,500. Like the top ring—with its huge stone and criss-cross double cable band—with pave diamond accents for extra glamour.
