“Rumor Has It” Adele’s rocking one seriously huge engagement ring.
The 33-year-old Grammy winner sparked speculation that she and boyfriend Rich Paul might be betrothed at Tuesday’s 2022 Brit Awards, where she hit the red carpet wearing a stunning pear-shaped sparkler by celebrity favorite Lorraine Schwartz along with her black velvet Armani Privé gown.
The jeweler’s team tells Page Six Style that the songstress’ matching earrings, which feature both pear- and emerald-cut stones, weighed in at a whopping 50 carats — but declines to share further info on her ring.
So we consulted our trusty gem experts, one of whom tells us Adele’s rock could be worth “close to the $1 million mark.”
“This one looks sparkly on all fronts, and makes us believe it would be very high quality indeed,” says Rare Carat COO Apeksha Kothari, who estimated the stone at 10 carats.
Olivia Landau, GIA-certified gemologist and founder of The Clear Cut, shared a slightly more conservative estimate.
“Her stone looks to be about 5 to 7 carats in size,” Landau tells us, adding that the diamond appears to be set on a skinny pavé band.
“Depending on the quality, a similar ring could range from $250,000 to $500,000.”
While Adele presumably returned her diamond drop earrings after the Brit Awards, she was still wearing the ring during her appearance on “The Graham Norton Show” Thursday, but wouldn’t confirm or deny that she and Paul are engaged.
“If I was, would I ever tell anyone if I was or wasn’t?” she teased.
Lorraine Schwartz has created some of the most spectacular engagement rings in Hollywood over the years. Who could forget the 15-carat, $2 million sparkler Kanye West used to propose to Kim Kardashian in 2013? Or Beyoncé’s 18-carat emerald-cut rock from husband Jay-Z, reportedly worth $5 million?
If Adele’s new ring is in fact from sports agent Paul, whom she’s been dating for about six months, then she’s certainly in good company.
