A Ten Year Wedding Anniversary: Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones ~ Celebrate in Style

Super Stars Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones will soon be celebrating their ten year wedding anniversary on November 18th. Traditionally, tin is the appropriate gift for your 10th anniversary, but for a couple that spent $1.5 million of their first wedding, I think we can expect something a little more special.

The engagement ring that Douglas gave to Zeta-Jones on New Year’s Eve in 1999 has since become one of the most famous celebrity engagement rings of all time. The antique ring, which features a 10 carat Marquis cut diamond, reportedly cost $2 million.

And in 2000 Douglas slipped on his own wedding ring at the Plaza Hotel in New York City in front of an audience of 350 people, including movie stars Meg Ryan and Jack Nicholson. The reception in the Plaza’s ballroom was decorated with a full sized magnolia tree, 700 white tulips, and a 10 tier, six foot cake.

Ten years and two kids later the couple is rumored to be planning a vow renewal ceremony to celebrate the momentous occasion.

But Douglas has been keeping himself pretty busy making the rounds to promote his upcoming movie, Wall Street 2, where he will reprise his famously smarmy role as Gordon Gekko. The movie star has also been making headlines lately after announcing that he had been diagnosed with stage four throat cancer this past month. On the Late Show with David Letterman, Douglas, who had just come back from spending some quality time with his family in Spain, informed fans that he was undergoing Chemo-therapy and radiation treatment.

Zeta-Jones has reportedly been a wealth of support during this tumultuous month, and the vow renewal is just another way of saying how happy they are to have one another after all these years. No details on the actual ceremony yet, but if the first wedding was any indication; these two will find another way to wow us all.
