Jennifer Hudson and Beyonce Knowles are two Dreamgirls that aren’t dreaming of a diamond anymore. The superstars recently revealed their stunning diamond engagement rings that sure sparkle in tune.

Dreamgirls, Beyonce Knowles and Jennifer Hudson, have talent, beauty, accolades – and now a lot of bling on their ring fingers. Both women debuted their diamond engagement rings this fall, and jewelry lovers everywhere fell to their knees.

Jennifer Hudson got one whopper of a birthday present when her boyfriend, David Otunga, proposed in September. The Oscar winner was given a platinum, five-carat diamond ring from Neil Lane to seal the deal.

Otunga is best known as “Punk” on the VH1 reality show “I Love New York 2“. The couple have been dating for about a year, both hail from the windy city of Chicago and, come to think of it, both are reality show rejects who have gone on to bigger and better. Bravo!

Speaking of ‘bigger and better’, Beyonce’s, eighteen-carat juggernaut appeared on the red carpet at the Fashion Rocks concert in New York, where she all but blinded the drooling paparazzi. The Lorraine Schwartz beauty is valued at $5 million and features a flawless, emerald cut diamond.

Hubby, Jay-Z, does pretty well for himself, we hear.

The music biz’s royal couple secretly married in April, and the stalkerazzi has been waiting for the diamond to debut ever since. Timing is everything.

Beyonce then wowed the Fashion Rocks audience with her “Ain’t Nothing Like the Real Thing” duet with one Justin Timberlake and appeared in full Etta James garb to pay homage to the chaunteuse – who was in the audience and who Beyonce portrays in her latest film, Cadillac Records.

Ms. Hudson’s self-titled album dropped on September 30th, and her new movie, The Secret Life of Bees, will debut on October 17th. If the film is as good as the book (and early buzz says it is), we might be smelling Oscar for Hudson yet again.

Is it OK to get nauseous now?

While your name might not be in lights, you can certainly light up a room with a diamond engagement ring from your true love. Visit for
