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 London’s Heathrow Airport Tuesday.
According to jewelry expert Michael O’Connor, the big 7-carat bauble is worth a cool half million dollars — and is the symbol of pure love.
“The platinum engagement ring he proposed to Amal Alamuddin with is totally symbolic of purity,” O’Connor told RadarOnline.
“Purity 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.
“Pure white platinum holds the diamonds securely — and platinum is primarily used at 95 percent purity which makes if one of the most pure jewelry metals.
“The emerald cut diamond, as well as the tapered baguette side diamonds, are cut with fewer facets than most other cuts and shapes,” he said, “which sparkles with more pure white light than other cuts.”
