The “Rich Girl” singer, Gwen Stefani just got a lot richer with a massive custom-designed engagement ring from long term boyfriend, Blake Shelton.
On Tuesday, the couple announced their engagement on Instagram with a kissing photo while showing off the new bling. The picture boasts 1.3 million likes and 41,800 comments, while the caption read, “@blakeshelton yes please! 💍🙏🏻 gx”.
Shelton also posted the photo to his Instagram. His caption was a little more heartfelt, reading, “Hey @gwenstefani, thanks for saving my 2020… And the rest of my life.. I love you. I heard a YES!”
The Engagement Ring
But back to the ring. Shelton didn’t hold back for his soon-to-be third wife.
“Gwen’s ring appears to feature a classic, six-prong setting with a 6-9 carat solitaire diamond set on a white gold or platinum band,” Brilliant Earth‘s SVP of merchandising and retail expansion, Kathryn Money told Page Six Style.
“Depending on the quality and specific characteristics of center stone, we estimate the cost of the ring to be around $500,000 plus.”
*Spits out water*
Just to be sure we heard that correct, we needed to confirm a second opinion.
“Gwen’s massive new bling appears to be around or oval cut, set in a solitaire or simple pavé platinum setting,” Katie Zimmerman, CMO at Blue Nile confirmed to Page Six. “With the center stone nearly reaching Gwen’s middle knuckle, I estimate the total weight of her engagement ring to be approximately 8-10 carats at a value of $700,000 to $800,000, depending on the color and clarity of the diamonds.”
*Takes another drink just to spit out water again*
And to make things even sweeter, before five-year boyfriend popped the question earlier this month in Oklahoma, Shelton asked Stefani’s father for his blessing. Who said chivalry is dead? Of course, Gwen’s father said yes!
According to Us Weekly, a source spills that, “Blake is just ready to be married and wants it to happen very soon. Don’t be surprised if it happens by the end of the year.”
Now we wait to catch a glimpse of the sure-to-be spectacular nuptials… Without a doubt, the music at that wedding is going to be off the charts!
