Mumbai: Priyanka Chopra recently showed off her massive diamond ring on her engagement finger at ace designer Manish Malhotra’s party.
While there is still no official confirmation about Priyanka and her rumoured boyfriend Nick Jonas’ engagement, the Quantico actress seemed to have given approval of the same when she recently posed for an Instagram selfie with Bollywood star Raveena Tandon and displayed the huge rock on her ring finger.
On Thursday, The Hollywood Reporter quoted gemologist and diamond expert Grant Mobley revealing all about Priyanka’s gorgeous engagement ring: “It is a timeless design and features a cushion-cut diamond set in platinum with what looks like small baguette diamonds on the sides.” He went on to add that as Tiffany’s diamonds are ethically sourced, they are among the best found in nature.
He saved the best for the last – the cost of the ring with which Nick Jonas popped the question to Priyanka. “A ring of this size and quality would cost around $300,000,” THR quoted him as saying. In Indian rupees, the cost of Priyanka’s ring comes to approximately Rs 2.1 crore.
The news of the couple’s engagement came after Bollywood director Ali Abbas Zafar said that Priyanka opted out from his upcoming flick ‘Bharat‘ in the ‘Nick’ of time, owing to a very “special reason”.
Earlier, in two instances, Priyanka was seen hiding her ring from the paparazzi. Priyanka and Nick, who reportedly dated for two months, were first spotted together at the 2017 Met Gala.
The speculation about their relationship brewed after the pair met each other’s family. First, Chopra met Jonas’ family at his cousin’s wedding in New Jersey, after which Nick traveled to India to meet Chopra’s mother.
At an event in Delhi in August, Priyanka had refused to answer questions about her engagement. “My entire life—my personal life—is not for public consumption. Ninety percent of my life is for public consumption, but 10% is for me. I’m a girl; I have the right to keep that to myself,” she had said.
