We recently caught a glimpse of Serena Williams’s engagement ring from Alexis Ohanian, and the image has seriously stuck with us. Not only does it hold a super-special meaning, but it’s also worth more than our entire life savings.
Keep reading for details on Serena Williams’s engagement ring.
1. What does it look like?
The accessory features a large emerald-cut diamond, with one smaller gem on each side. According to Ringspo, this particular setting is known to symbolize the past, present and future stages of a relationship.
2. How big is it?
Williams’s ring is an estimated 12 carats, and that’s one heavy ring.
3. How much is it worth?
The massive sparkler is worth around $2 million, just like Blake Lively’s engagement ring from Ryan Reynolds.
4. When did they get engaged?
In 2016, Williams announced on Reddit (duh) that she’s engaged to Ohanian (Reddit co-founder). The couple tied the knot in 2017 in an intimate ceremony in New Orleans. They are now parents to a 2-year-old daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.
5. When did Williams obtain the sparkler?
It’s important to point out that many believe Williams’s massive rock is technically her wedding ring—not her engagement ring. The athlete never shared pics of the proposal accessory and didn’t start wearing the emerald-cut gem until after she tied the knot in 2017.
Guess the wise-old saying is true: Go big or go home.
