Jessica Simpsonâ€™s engagement ring is all the talk, as the singer just confirmed the happy news â€“ at the same time her ex- husband also proposed. So who has the bigger, more expensive ring? Find out here!
Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo just announced their engagement after four years of dating. Ironically, Jessica Simpson and her boyfriend of seven months, Eric Johnson have also just become engaged. And so the ring comparison begins. Who has the bigger, more expensive ring? And who did Nick spend more on to begin with?
Nick and Jessica dated for four years before becoming engaged. When he proposed, he did so with a stunning, five-carat round brilliant cut diamond worth an estimated $500,000.
Vanessa stuck it out for four years as well, and Nick proposed to her with a platinum four-carat ring asscher cut diamond, with trapezoids on the side from designer Bader & Garrin worth an estimated $200,000-$225,000.
Jessica Simpsonâ€™s engagement ring from Eric Johnson is a bit different. It is designed by Neil Lane, and a five carat ruby, with “old European cut” diamonds on the side which are approximately two carats each.
Lane talked to People magazine about the unusual piece, saying it “is a stone of love and it is the most romantic gem. It’s very rare and very, very special.”
Ruby happens to be Jessicaâ€™s birthstone. You can see pictures of Jessica and Vanessaâ€™s rings from Nick below. Which do you think is better? Nick did a nice job with both rings IMO, and Eric did a nice job as well, though it is not my taste.
So what does Nick Lachey think? Of course, both he and Jessica wish each other the best. Their relationship ended a log time ago, so I am sure the well wishes are genuine.
Either way, lets face it. All of the rings are more than most peopleâ€™s homes! All that matters is the marriage, and I wish both couples all the best.
