Avril Lavigne is engaged – and we’ve taken a close look at her incredible heart shaped ring

Avril Lavigne is engaged to her long term partner Mod Sun, after making a huge announcement on Instagram last night (Thursday, 07 April).

In a series of images, she showed off her dazzling new heart-shaped diamond engagement ring with the caption “Oui! Je t’aime pour toujours 🤍💍🥂Dimanche. 27. Mars. 2022″.

Her new fiance, Mod, proposed with a custom ring designed by Beverly Hills-based jeweller XIV Karats, featuring a huge heart-shaped diamond set on a narrow pave band.

“It has the words ‘Hi Icon’ engraved in it, which were the first words he ever said to me. And it has Mod + Avril on the inside,” Lavigne told People.

Steven Stone’s leading diamond expert, Zack Stone, took a close look at the ring to reveal everything you need to know.

 “Avril Lavigne’s heart shaped engagement ring features a huge white diamond which looks to be around 5ct. It’s set on a thin pave band which accentuates the size of the stone, making it look even more spectacular. I would estimate it’s worth around £350,000 to £400,000 depending on the exact quality of the stone. 

“Heart shaped rings are no doubt romantic as they illustrate the traditional symbol of love, and the story behind why Mod Sun chose this is very sentimental. 

“Interestingly, they aren’t the most popular cut of diamond, with only a few other celebrities opting for a similar design. Lady Gaga received a gorgeous 6ct heart-shaped engagement ring from Taylor Kinney in 2015, whilst Gwen Stefani received one from Gavin Rossdale in 2002, although both couples unfortunately split.”

And while this ring is a show-stopper, this isn’t the first one Avril Lavigne has received.

Back in 2012, Nickelback lead singer Chad Kroeger gave her a whopping14ct diamond reportedly worth $350,000, which he then upgraded to a 17-ct stone on their anniversary in 2014.

She also received a ring from Sum 41’s Deryck Whibley, who proposed with a 4ct diamond solitaire in 2005.
