Melania Trump vs Ivanka Trump engagement ring: Most valuable Trump woman stone exposed
Ivanka Trump’s engagement ring is an enormous rock set fashionably on a pave diamond band. Meghan Markle replaced her gold band from Harry with a pave band. Blake Lively’s engagement ring is a huge oval stone set on a pave band, as is Demi Lovato’s.
Ivanka was given a square cushion cut diamond by her husband Jared Kushner.
Ivanka and Jared first met when friends set them up for a possible business deal in 2005.
The couple briefly separated in 2008 but soon reconciled and tied the knot the following year.
Since then, they have had three children together, Arabella, nine, Joseph, six, and Theodore, four.
Ivanka’s ring is worth £400,000, according to Tobias Kormind, managing director of 77Diamonds.com.
The huge emerald cut ring is worth £2.3million.
Tobias said: “When Melania Trump got engaged in 2004, Donald Trump bought her a 15 carat, D Flawless, emerald cut diamond ring from Graff which would today retail for $3million, which is around £2.3million.
“At the time, Trump hit the headlines for claiming he had enjoyed a 50 percent discount. Graff was later quoted saying, ‘We don’t sell items for publicity value’.”
But that is not all. Tobias continued: “A decade later on their 10th anniversary, Donald Trump upgraded the size of Melania’s ring to a 25 carat diamond, also from Graff.
Tobias added: “Ivanka Trump’s engagement ring, which she received when she became engaged to Jared Kushner, has been conspicuous in its absence even for formal occasions all these years.”
Of course, lots of women choose to shed their engagement rings for numerous reasons.
Tobias said: “In recent years, Ivanka may feel in international political environments it sends out the wrong message to wear large ostentatious pieces of jewellery which can be inappropriate when she is tackling socially sensitive issues such as women’s rights and inequality.
“Prior to their political exposure, the Trump’s were more ready to make grandiose public displays of wealth.”
