Have you heard Jessica Simpson is engaged? Because she is. To some football player named Eric Johnson. They started dating in May. Last week her ex-husband Nick Lachey got engaged to Vanessa Minnillo, his girlfriend of four years. Not passing judgement (well, trying not to), just stating the facts. Anyway! This is a fashion blog, so let’s talk jewelry!
StyleList reports Jessica is sporting a vintage Neil Lane engagement ring. The yellow gold ring has a 4-carat oval-shaped ruby accented by 2-carat diamonds on either side. The ring is allegedly a rare piece — probably over 100 years old and from southeast Asia. How much is it worth? An estimated $100,000.
Jessica got a pear-shaped diamond from Nick for their engagement, and Minnillo is currently wearing a 4.5 carat Asscher-cut diamond ring. Battle of the rings, we say! Up next: war of the wedding gowns!
