Ever since Teen Mom 2 star Javi Marroquin got down on one knee and popped the question to girlfriend Lauren Comeau, fans have been dying to get a better look at the engagement ring. Well, they’re in luck, because the bride-to-be has been showing off her new bling on social media — and experts say it’s fancy AF. OK, so they didn’t use those terms exactly, but In Touch did reach out to Kathryn Money, Vice President of Strategy & Merchandising for Brilliant Earth, and she gave us all the deets on the jewelry the reality star used to propose, including how it stacks up against the ring he gave ex-wife Kailyn Lowry.
“The ring Javi gave to his now-fiancée, Lauren, appears to feature a round brilliant or cushion cut diamond, surrounded by a square-shaped double halo of diamonds set on a split shank featuring three delicate bands in white gold or platinum,” Kathryn exclusively told In Touch. “We estimate the center diamond weighs approximately 1 carat, with the diamond accents weighing an additional ½ carat.”
As for the price? That ring definitely set back Javi, 26, a pretty penny. “Depending on the quality and specific characteristics of the diamond, we estimate the cost of the ring to be between $6,000-10,000 USD,” the jewelry expert continued. So what about Kail’s? Javi didn’t have much saved up when he first popped the question, but after two years of marriage, he made up for it by giving his wife a new ring, which she excitedly shared on Twitter.
“The ring Javi gave his ex-wife Kailyn featured what appears to be a 1-1.5 carat round diamond, set on a white gold or platinum band with graduating diamond accents. While Kailyn’s ring is classic, Lauren’s ring is more intricate and contemporary – and definitely isn’t lacking in the sparkle department!” Lauren, 27, and Kailyn, 27, are two totally different women, so it makes sense that Javi would propose with two totally different rings. TBH, though, both were stunning, and we’re loving how glam the new one is.
The good news? Kathryn knows where we can find a lookalike for both. According to her, Brilliant Earth’s Soleil Diamond Ring or Fortuna Diamond Ring are just what you’re looking for if you love Lauren’s diamond. And if you’re a fan of Kail’s, you can check out the Amelie Diamond Ring or Sienna Diamond Ring. We don’t know about you, but we’re gonna start saving right now.
