Shelton put in an effort to make the engagement ring super special for his girlfriend of five years and fellow “The Voice” judge. “Blake had the ring custom designed,” a source told Us Weekly, revealing that the country singer asked permission from Stefani’s dad before proposing to her. “It meant so much to Gwen that Blake was so traditional about it,” the source added. A source also told the magazine that Shelton proposed earlier this month in his native Oklahoma, but the couple keep news of the proposal private until now.
According to jewelry expert Kathryn Money, the “Don’t Speak” singer’s diamond engagement ring features a classic, six-prong setting with a 6-carat solitaire diamond set in a white gold or platinum band. Money estimates that the solitaire engagement ring cost somewhere above $500,000, depending on the quality of the stone.
However Katie Zimmerman, CMO at Blue Nile, believes the engagement ring could be worth even more. “Gwen’s massive new bling appears to be a round or oval cut, set in a solitaire or simple pavé platinum setting,” she explained. “With the center stone nearly reaching Gwen’s middle knuckle, I estimate the total weight of her engagement ring to be approximately 8-10 carats at a value of $700,000-$800,000, depending on the color and clarity of the diamonds.”
A number of celebrities congratulated the happy couple on Instagram including John Legend, who wrote, “AMAZING! Congratulations to you both!!”
“WHHHHAAAATTTT!!!! Lucky Blake!!!! Xo,” Hoda Kotb posted, while Erin Foster said, “Finally.” Former “The Voice” coach Alicia Keys wrote, “Awwww babes!!!!!! Congratulations!!!!!!”
In April 2018, Stefani said during a guest appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that she’s been thinking about marriage. The “Hollaback Girls” singer told DeGeneres, “You know what, I love weddings. The kids love him, we love him, everybody loves him,” When the host said, “Just think about it,” Stefani responded, “I do, I think about it all the time.”
