Scarlett Johansson has finally debuted her engagement ring—and it was well worth the wait. Over the weekend, the actress gave the first glimpse at her 11-carat, pear-shaped sparkler from fiancé Colin Jost while promoting her new Black Widow movie at Comic-Con.
“Scarlett’s stunning and wildly unique engagement ring appears to feature an estimated 11-carat, uniquely-shaped pear champagne diamond,” Kathryn Money, VP of Strategy and Merchandising at Brilliant Earth, tells The Knot. “The gorgeous gemstone is set on a distinctive asymmetric band, likely comprised of yellow gold with a dark brown enamel or ceramic coating.”
Money adds that the massive bauble likely came with a corresponding price tag. “Depending on the quality and specific characteristics of the center diamond, we estimate the cost of the ring at approximately $350,000-$400,000,” she says.

She also predicts that uniquely cut rings, like Johansson’s, will continue to rise in popularity among brides. “Many celebrities including Sophie Turner, Katherine Schwarzenegger and Blake Lively have opted for fancy shaped engagement rings,” she explains. “Elongated diamond shapes including pears and ovals cuts create a flattering look as they appear to lengthen the wearer’s finger. Additionally, we’re seeing many brides opting for distinct elements such as asymmetric designs and colored gemstones to express their individual style.”
Johansson confirmed her engagement to the Saturday Night Live personality in May after dating for two years. The two first met in 2006 when Johansson hosted her first episode of SNL, though they didn’t begin dating until 2017. They made their official public debut at a gala in New York City in November of that year.
Despite their tendency to keep their relationship private, Jost gave a rare interview about Johansson to Entertainment Tonight in 2017. “She’s pretty cool,” he raved. “It’s hard to have a lot of complaints, she’s pretty awesome.”
