So what do we know about her engagement ring? Steven Stone’s diamond expert, Zack Stone has taken a close look.

“Jessica’s engagement ring looks to be a 5ct round brilliant diamond, making it quite the showstopper. Representing over two thirds of all diamonds sold, round cut diamonds are traditionally the first and most popular diamond that’s given as a symbol of commitment and Jessica’s perfectly encapsulates the happy couples journey.

“This shape of diamond shows no sign of slowing down, either as data shows Google searches for this style have increased by 23% in the last 12 months, suggesting it’s a timeless trend that’s set to stay.

“Round brilliant diamonds are also the most expensive diamond shape and the only one that the GIA grades for cut. With this in mind, I’d estimate its value to be around $400k.”

Globally, over 4,400 users search Google for ‘round diamond engagement rings’ each month – increasing by 23% in the last 12 months. With celebrities such as Brittany Snow and Mila Kunis favouring the style, we expect the trend to continue!
