The Truth About Gwen Stefani's Engagement Ring

Fans of Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton got good news this week — the couple is engaged after dating for five years (via People). "Gwen is ecstatic. The proposal was a surprise," a source told the outlet about Shelton's proposal. "Gwen and Blake kept the proposal quiet for a few days, but were very excited to share."


This next step in their relationship makes perfect sense. After all, according to Stefani, fans assume she is already married to the country star. "Do you know how many people say my 'husband' about him? I guess we're just together... people got used to it or something like that, but it's pretty cute" she said earlier this month (via Extra). 

When the time came to ask the No Doubt singer to be his wife, Hollywood Life reports Shelton planned every last detail. "Blake built a beautiful chapel for Gwen on his property in Oklahoma and he felt it would be really special to propose there," a source told the outlet. And as for the ring? Well, let's just say it was worth the five year wait!

Gwen Stefani's engagement ring is fitting of an A-list celebrity

Given that Blake Shelton's net worth is $100 million, he can afford a very expensive engagement ring — and that is just what his bride-to-be received (via Celebrity Net Worth). A source told Us Weekly, "Blake had the ring custom designed." Brilliant Earth's Kathryn Money told the outlet she estimates the 6-carat diamond solitaire set in six prongs in white gold or platinum to be worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $500,000, depending on the exact quality of the stone. Um, wow! And meanwhile, we're guessing the quality is as good as money can buy. After all, we are talking about Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton here.


Although the couple just got engaged, a source told Us Weekly about the timing of a potential wedding, "Blake is just ready to be married and wants it to happen very soon. Don't be surprised if it happens by the end of the year."
