If carats were a measurement of devotion, we'd say Avril Lavigne's husband, Chad Kroeger, really, really, really loves her.
The "Hello Kitty" singer, 29, shared a snapshot of her first anniversary gift from the Nickelback singer and guitarist, 39: a massive diamond ring. But we'll let her give you the specifics:
I still can't believe my 1 year anniversary gift. 17 carat emerald cut. Wow. I love my hubby. pic.twitter.com/hOdMxy5uEA— Avril Lavigne (@AvrilLavigne) July 31, 2014
She didn't even attempt to downplay the details of the obviously pricey piece, spelling out the number of carats for her 16.3 million followers to see.
The Canadian singer has reason to be excited. Her new ring is even bigger than her engagement ring. When she accepted Kroeger's proposal in August 2012, he slipped a platinum-set, pear-shaped diamond with half moons totaling 14 carats on her finger. They went on to exchange vows July 1 in the South of France. She wore a black wedding dress and they partied so late into the night that the cake wasn't cut until 3:30 a.m.
If Avril's gifts increase 3 carats in size each time, we can't wait to see the 20-carat sparkler she gets when they make it to their second anniversary! Or the 44-carat ring she gets when they've been married 10 years.
Guess Kroeger should keep churning out those hit songs.
