How Much is Hilary Duff’s Engagement Ring Worth?
The couple made the announcement by posting a cute photo on Instagram, where Duff shows off a beautiful engagement ring. What’re the details on the ring? Keep reading to find out everything we know so far about Duff’s engagement ring.
Hilary Duff and Matthew Koma’s relationship
Duff and Koma are longtime friends and creative collaborators. They’ve been a couple for almost two years, after dating off and on for a while. They dated for a few months in 2017 and then took a break, before getting back together.
Duff gushed about their relationship during an appearance on The Talk. “It’s going so great,” she said. Duff continued by saying she totally gets why Selena Gomez got back together with Justin Bieber. “Timing is such a big deal…third time’s a charm.”
When the pair started dating again in October 2017, a source told E! News, “Him being gone on tour was the main reason things didn’t work out the first time around so now that he’s back they’ve picked up right where they left off.”
The couple has a six-month-old daughter, named Banks Violet. She is the first child for Koma and the second for Duff, who also has a seven-year-old son, Luca Cruz, with her ex-husband Mike Comrie.
The engagement announcement
No details yet on exactly how Koma proposed, but the couple shared the happy news via Instagram. Duff posted the photo of them together, with her hand raised, showing off the ring.
She captioned the photo, “He asked me to be his wife.”
Koma also posted the same picture to his account, captioning his post, ‘I asked my best friend to marry me…@hilaryduff.” Duff commented on his post with, “Thanks for the promotion babe.” The happy couple also posted a photo of them kissing, right after the first announcement.
The engagement ring
The engagement ring appears to be a three or four carats elongated, cushion-cut diamond. Cushion-cut rings are a trend right now with several stars sporting this style, including Kim Kardashian.
It’s a square cut, with rounded corners, similar to a pillow or a cushion. The world famous Hope Diamond is a cushion cut. The shape creates a beautiful prismatic effect and returns light in a clunkier pattern than the princess cut or round cut.
Duff hasn’t officially announced the maker of her ring, but several experts have taken a look at her pictures and given their estimates on its worth. Representatives for RareCaret told Business Insider, they thought the ring was four carats and probably includes very few flaws. They estimated the price at $100,000.
Other estimates were not quite as high. Kathryn Money for Brilliant Earth told Town and Country she estimated the cost range for Duff’s new ring was between $40,000 and $80,000. Nicole Wegman of Ring Concierge gave a similar assessment to Page Six of $45,000 to $50,000. However, the price is going to depend on the type of band, which is hard to tell from the picture. Rose and yellow gold are both trending right now and would make the ring a bit pricier, up to $75,000.
Duff and Koma appear to be thrilled and looking forward to their future. The pair have collaborated on music, Koma co-wrote the songs, Arms Around a Memory, Confetti and Breath In, Breath Out. They’ve collaborated on a family and now they have a life to share. Awww, we’re so happy for them.
