EXCLUSIVE

The average size of a diamond engagement ring is reportedly 1.18 carats -- but Nikki Sixx just DESTROYED the average ... by dropping a SIX CARAT stone on his fiancee ... TMZ has learned.

Sixx popped the question to 27-year-old Courtney Bingham during a trip to St. Barts this weekend ... and sources close to the couple tell us it was one helluva proposal.

We're told the evening started with a candle-lit stroll on beach ... followed by dinner in a tent littered with rose petals ... and when the moment was right, Sixx whipped out the ring.

Of course, Courtney said yes ... because ya know, it's 6 CARATS ... and you pretty much have to. No word on when the two plan on tying the knot.

Who is this guy again and why does he look like he's on his way to a 1980's- themed Halloween party?

That thing is hideously gaudy. I think a total weight of 6 carats divided up into several smaller stones would have looked a lot better.
It's not like she's gonna be able to wear that thing all th time, anyway. While I'm sure she'll have no shortage of bling to doll herself up with when she wants to go trolloping, shouldn't your engagement ring be something sentimental?

27 yr old marries 53 yr old Wow. Oh wait, 27 yr old marries 6 carats. That makes more sense.

She looks like a total upgrade from Kat Von D. Best wishes to both of them.

Looks like one big happy family. Grandpa, Grandgirl, Daddy and Princess all in one.

The only reason these old farts go for the young girls is because a woman their own age is too smart to have anything to do with them.

How cute! She was still in diapers when he had a girl shove a phone up her ***** and call her mom and overdosing on heroin. 60 yr olds and 20 year olds always make such a great couple.
