It's a whopper! Time.com's Money experts predict it costs more than $250,000 (R3 346 695) and is between six and eight carats. It's a beautiful oval-shaped ring, with a double band.

It's stunning, no doubt. But many prefer finding (or being given) that engagement ring that speaks to her unique style and taste.
