Beyonce's Fake Engagement Ring

You know life is rough when you can't wear your own engagement ring out in public because it's too valuable. Ahh the life of a celebrity.

When Jay Z proposed to Beyonce with an 18-carat flawless diamond ring (est. at $5 million), he also presented her with a imitation version (valued at $5,000) so she can wear it on stage and out in public.

A source tells Star magazine, "Even though Beyonce's real engagement ring is insured, she doesn't always feel comfortable wearing such a valuable stone."

Beyonce publicly displayed her wedding ring for the first time on the red carpet for Fashion Rocks at Radio City Music Hall in NYC. Photogs and journalists went gaga over her bling, so we don't blame her being super cautious. Isn't it funny how her "imitation ring" costs more than most people's real wedding rings?
