Liza Minnelli’s engagement rings: A comparison of diamonds from her four husbands.
LIZA MINNELLI has had four marriages during the course of her life. But what kind of engagement ring did each spouse give her, and how do they compare?
Liza Minnelli, 72, is best remembered for her Oscar-winning performance in Cabaret in 1972, as well as her roles in Arthur in 1981 and other hit albums. She has had a long and famous career, known for her flamboyant theatrical presence and powerful singing voice. In terms of her personal life, the American actress has been married four times, each time receiving a stunning engagement diamond from her partner. But who was she married to, and how were her diamond rings different? Tobias Kormind, the Managing Director of 77 Diamonds, discussed with this publication about the diamonds Liza received from each partner.
1967-1974, Liza Minnelli and Peter Allen
Peter Allen was Liza’s first husband, and they were married from 1967 to 1974.
Liza was allegedly given a 0.50 carat round diamond set in a broad gold ring, according to Tobias.
The jewellery expert put the value at £4,000.
According to the Telegraph, Liza discovered her new husband having an affair with a man on the night of their wedding.
According to Vice, Peter then began dating Mark Herron, who was married to Liza’s mother, July Garland.
Liza reflected on her 1996 marriage, saying, “I married Peter, and he didn’t tell me he was gay.” Except for me, no one knew. And I discovered… well, let me put it this way: as long as I live, I’ll never surprise anyone coming home. “I make the first call!”
From 1974 to 1979, Liza Minnelli and Jack Haley Jr.
Liza went on to Jack Haley Jr in 1974, whom she met through her mother, Judy Garland, after she appeared in The Wizard Of Oz, in which Jack’s father played the Tin Man.
Haley gave Liza a simple diamond and sapphire band as an engagement ring.
Tobias sets the price at £2,000.
She donned a buttercup yellow pantsuit to their little wedding of only eight guests.
They divorced after five years of marriage, realizing that their connection was more platonic than romantic.
“Haley was spouse number two and straight, but they were friends rather than lovers,” the Guardian noted.
