Avril Lavigne kept her romance below the radar for six months but now her new hardware is irresistibly bright. It is indeed so flashy that in an instant the world understood the intensity of her love story.
Avril’s engagement to Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger came to public as a surprise. And then she flashed her new bling – even a bigger surprise. The Canadian singer showed off the ring via ‘Hello! Canada’ magazine where she covered the front page with her new fiancé. The ring that is covering almost half her finger has a 10-carat pear-shaped diamond flanked by half-moon side diamonds of 4-carats.
So how does the singer’s new hardware stands when compared to other Hollywood proposals of recent times?
It’s definitely bigger than her previous one. In 2005 Sum 41’s rocker Deryck Whibley asked her hand in marriage just a day before her 21st birthday. He did it with a simple round solitaire diamond ring. It was a modest choice for the young couple. But the rocker certainly got an opulent piece for the second time.
Comparing it with latest proposals, Avril’s piece is smaller than Angelina Jolie’s 16-carat customized celestial ring that cost Brad Pitt a whopping $500,000. But it is bigger than the 3.5 carat antique diamond ring of Miley Cyrus.
What do you think about the $350,000 ring of the rocker? Is it a real stunner or just an addition to the stack of tinsel town’s engagement baubles?
