When celebrities give up their single status they certainly do it in style. In 2014, stars and their sweethearts pulled out all the stops with jaw-dropping, sparkling symbols of love and commitment. These included one of Hollywood’s most famous bachelors, George Clooney. The 53-year-old actor proposed to human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin in April, followed by a late-September wedding ceremony in Venice.

The Clooneys, of course, weren't the only stars to swap rings. Olivia Palermo accepted Johanne Huebel's New Year's Eve proposal and wed in a secret ceremony in June. And most recently, Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch shattered the dreams of single ladies everywhere when he announced his engagement to director Sophie Hunter.
