According to the latest gossip surrounding George Clooney, when he proposed to Amal Alamuddin, he did so with a ring worth $500,000!!! And we thought nothing could shock us more than learning of his engagement…
Amal, 36, showed off her new bling as she touched down at LondonÃ¢â¬â¢s Heathrow Airport Tuesday.
According to jewelry expert Michael OÃ¢â¬â¢Connor, the big 7-carat bauble is worth a cool half million dollars Ã¢â¬â and is the symbol of pure love.
Ã¢â¬ÅThe platinum engagement ring he proposed to Amal Alamuddin with is totally symbolic of purity,Ã¢â¬Â OÃ¢â¬â¢Connor told RadarOnline.
Ã¢â¬ÅPurity of design, purity of diamond and purity of setting. The design is purely classic with ethically-mined diamonds set with a larger center flanked by two tapered baguette diamonds.
Ã¢â¬ÅPure white platinum holds the diamonds securely Ã¢â¬â and platinum is primarily used at 95 percent purity which makes if one of the most pure jewelry metals.
Ã¢â¬ÅThe emerald cut diamond, as well as the tapered baguette side diamonds, are cut with fewer facets than most other cuts and shapes,Ã¢â¬Â he said, Ã¢â¬Åwhich sparkles with more pure white light than other cuts.Ã¢â¬Â
