If you want an engagement ring like Britney Spears’ from Sam Asghari, then you’re going to have to drop some serious cash. CEO of RareCaret.com, Ajay Anand, told Hello! he estimates Spears’ engagement ring could have set Asghari back around $70,000. Woah.
Though Asghari was spotted browsing at Cartier, he didn’t go with the iconic brand for this sparkler. He chose a piece from Roman Malayev of Forever Diamonds New York, opting for a “4-carat round brilliant stone in a platinum cathedral setting” which also features a “floating solitaire design” and “pavé detailing on the bridge and flush set diamonds on the prongs and basket.” The ring is so special it’s described as “one-of-a-kind” and inspired a new setting called “The Britney” (via Page Six).
As for Spears’ ring more specifically, it has the word “lioness” engraved inside; Asghari’s nickname for the superstar. Aww!
As for how that stacks up against her past rings? Well, her former fiancé Jason Trawick presented her with a 3.5 carat $90,000 engagement ring in 2012, which Spears reportedly gave back (via TMZ). Before that, she got two engagement rings from Kevin Federline with the backup dancer reportedly replacing his original ring with a more bling 5.5 carat one in 2005 (via People), though it’s not clear exactly how much either cost.
It seems like the star is (understandably) thrilled with her new ring from Asghari, and we’re wishing the two the very best!
