We’ll be honest, we can’t stop thinking about Nikki Bella‘s stunning engagement ring. Sure, all we got was one photo of the dazzler, but that’s all we needed to start digging up details on the gorgeous piece of jewelry Artem Chigvintsev proposed to the 36-year-old WWE Diva with. Luckily, Kathryn Money, VP of Strategy & Merchandising for Brilliant Earth, gave us her exclusive assessment regarding the details of Nikki’s ring from size to cost and more!
“Nikki’s glamorous ring features an estimated 2-to 2.5-carat emerald cut diamond accented with tapered baguette diamonds and set on a white gold or platinum band,” the expert estimates. “The elegant simplicity of the ring’s design allows the gorgeous, show-stopping center diamond to be the focal point.” You can say that again! We can’t stop staring at that big ol’ sparkler, which looked amazing with Nikki’s bright red manicure. While Artem, 37, hasn’t revealed who designed the piece, we know a lot of brands are willing to cut celebrities a deal for the publicity. But how much would such a lovely ring cost the average shopper?
“Depending on the quality and specific characteristics of the center gemstone, we estimate the cost of the ring is between $20,000-$40,000 USD,” says Kathryn. Luckily, Brilliant Earth’s Tapered Baguette Diamond Ring and Quinn Diamond Ring have a similar look on a much more reasonable budget.
Nikki first showed off the stunner on January 3, when she announced that Artem actually proposed two months earlier in November 2019. “Excited for 2020 and the next decade with you @theartemc ❤️,” she wrote alongside her post. “I said yes in France in November! We have been trying to keep it a secret but really wanted to share our excitement for the New Year!” In his own announcement, Artem gushed, “You are the best thing that has ever happened to me. So excited for what’s to come I love you more than anything and thank you for saying Yes.”
It’s clear the pro dancer has some incredible taste, so we can’t wait to see what they do for their (sure to be star-studded) wedding! Congratulations, you two. We couldn’t be happier to see your love continue growing.
