It is a truth universally acknowledge that… the real housewives are over the top. And it wouldn’t be far fetched to believe that their engagement rings are just as extravagant. While it’s difficult to keep track of which housewives are married, divorced, engaged or dating, we’re taking a look at some of the most talked about rings to grace the housewives’ well-manicured fingers.
Porsha Williams of Real Housewives of Atlanta announced her engagement to businessman and entrepreneur Dennis McKinley in September 2018. She received a massive oval-cut diamond engagement ring from her finacee made by celebrity jeweler Richie Rich. According to experts, the ring is valued at $750,000, with the massive rock set in a halo setting with diamond petals around the stone’s pavilion and three rows of small diamonds in the ring itself. McKinley didn’t skimp on anything with this ring – the stone has an excellent color (D) and no visible flaws (VS+).
The Atlanta real housewife had more good news to share! Soon after her engagement, Porsha revealed that she is expecting her first baby. The former model and actress was previously married to football player Kordell Stewart and held on to her yellow diamond engagement ring after their divorce.
Let’s get one thing out of the way. Danielle Staub has been engaged 20 times. That’s 20 diamond rings! However, she only had 2 previous marriages when she got engaged to Marty Caffrey in May 2017. Marty picked out the 4.5 oval cut diamond ring with the help of Danielle’s friends and RHONJ costar Teresa Guidice and helped him with the proposal. The couple married in May 2018 in the Bahamas but has since divorced after a brief 4-month marriage. Wamp waaaamp.
Although rumors about Teresa’s marriage to Joe may be on the rocks while he’s in jail for bankruptcy fraud are swirling, that doesn’t mean we can’t take a moment to oogle her engagement ring! Teresa’s ring, which she received in 1999, features a large, round center stone with tapered baguettes on either side in a platinum setting. For added sparkle, Teresa pairs it with an infinity band studded with substantial round diamonds. Let’s hope Teresa and Joe can work things out so we can see this stunner again.
Once we get to the West Coast, things get WILD! Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, actress and restaurateur Lisa Vanderpump takes the cake with her 20-carat emerald cut ring that she received from her husband Ken Todd who she married in 1982. The ring is currently priced at about $2 million.
While not as hefty as Lisa’s, Kyle Richards’ cushion cut engagement ring is definitely right at home in Beverly Hills. Her ring from husband Mauricio Umansky features a split-shank halo setting. Kyle pairs the ring with three diamond bands so you can’t help but notice it.
Veering slightly from the norm, Lisa Rinna can often be seen wearing a beautiful diamond ring in a vintage setting from husband Harry Hamlin. The ring is not her engagement ring, but rather a gift from Harry to celebrate their 20th anniversary in 2017. Lisa has also been seeing wearing two different east-west set diamond rings, one featuring a very large marquise-shaped stone. This is one lucky, diamond studded lady.
