ICYMI, Scarlett Johansson is getting hitched again, folks. She's set to head down the aisle with her longtime boyfriend, Saturday Night Live's Colin Jost, and she’s going to do it in a ring you can see from space. It’s huge, andincredibly unique. Instead of opting for a traditional, clear, white diamond, this ring boasts a light-brown 11-carat diamond in a ceramic and yellow gold setting. The cut is also unexpected: a combination of pear and oval. It's pretty unique, but if this ring has inspired your own proposal aspirations, there are several engagement rings like Scarlett Johansson's that have some of the same elements— minus the price tag, of course. Let's be honest: Who's raking in that Marvel/ SNL cash flow?
Oh, did I forget to mention the value of that brilliant bobble? According to Alicia Davis, the VP of Merchandise at Shane Co., it was not cheap. "Scarlett's 11 carat light-brown diamond looks to be a spin on two stone shapes, mixing an oval and pear to create an elegant egg shape," Davis previously told Elite Daily. "We can estimate a ring like this to be priced over $400,000." Whew.
While the couple announced that they were engaged on May 19 through Johansson's publicist, the public didn't get a peek at the ring until July 20, during the Marvel Studios panel at Comic-Con. Frankly, it was worth the wait. Here’s a better view:
If you love this ring, but don’t have almost half a million dollars to drop, worry not: You still have options. Really affordable options, actually, especially if you consider other brown gemstones like smoky topaz and morganite, which are just as gorgeous but only a fraction of the price. Here are some options for similar rings to help get you started.
