Those who are not familiar with Adrienne Bailon from The Real will certainly want to know more about her after hearing the details of her gorgeous new engagement ring from fiancé Israel Houghton.
The TV personality posted an eye-catching image of her diamond-clad hand on Instagram while vacationing in Paris with her husband-to-be. The picture clearly indicates that a small fortune was spent on this symbolic piece of jewelry, with professional estimates ranging between $300,000 and $750,000. Set with an emerald-cut center stone and surrounded with a halo of French pave-set diamonds, the platinum diamond ring might just be the new envy of Hollywood.
The center stone alone appears to total roughly 8 carats. The diamond’s size coupled with the halo of French pave-set diamonds is reason enough for the ring to be valued at $750,000. However, others who estimate that the stone is only 4 to 6 carats in size, believe the ring is worth a little less, valued in the range of $300,000. Adrienne boasted her new jewels through an Instagram photo featuring her delicate hand and white manicured nails.
This will be the second marriage for Houghton, who was previously married for over two decades. Though Adrienne was once engaged, this will be her first marriage. Adrienne and Israel have known each other for quite some time and are very much in love. Perhaps that is why the couple is able to stay strong despite some negative comments and attention they have received since going public with their relationship.
Little is known in regards to the big proposal, other than the fact that it took place in the City of Lights. Fans will hopefully learn more about the proposal once the new season of The Real kicks off. In the meantime the newly engaged couples is enjoying each other’s company in one of the most romantic cities in the world. If we’re lucky, we may just get to see more pictures of the happy couple and the sensational diamond ring.
Whether second time is a charm or Israel felt the need to make up for public backlash, one thing is for certain: Adrienne lucked out by receiving one of the most flamboyant engagement rings we have seen in a while. Congratulations on the engagement and may the ring be worn in great health!
