Gabrielle Union

My Fat, New Engagement Ring is Worth ...

12/22/2013 7:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1222_dwade_gunion_gettyEvery kiss begins with ... an engagement ring that costs MORE THAN MOST PEOPLE MAKE THEIR WHOLE FRICKIN' LIVES -- if you're Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade, that is.

Dwyane popped the question Saturday night with an 8.5 carat cushion cut diamond ring (pictured below) made by go-to celeb jeweler Jason of Beverly Hills ... and TMZ has learned it goes for nearly 1 million bucks.

We're told Dwyane had been on the hunt for months for the stone of her dreams ... and his jeweler made 3 trips to Miami looking for the perfect jewel ... and third time was a charm.

Bravo.

OooooNooo!    

Its all relative. Look at his current income and the cost of the ring is not that surprising percentage of his salary. The bigger problem is when the sports job ends (they can only play at that level for a few years) and they haven;t saved any of the money.

She's officially the envy of every black woman. Disgusting. Pro tip, win respect of civilized folk by either refusing a ring that costs more than 3 working class men will make in their lifetime OR downgrade and buy a country in your homeland, become queen by default, and do something about the quality of life instead of the constant line coming over here to destroy ours once they've finished theirs off!

When I got married I was told an engagement ring should be worth 2 & 1/2x's what the guy makes in one year. Considering that...isn't 1 mill a little cheap for this guy? Hey babe, I make $120,000 every year and to show you my commitment I got this 12k ring out of a cracker jack box.

She is a very attractive and classy woman but is too old for him in the long run. He'll be skewing much younger after this plays out.

Isn't she an actress?, is she still in the business, or is she retired and just following him around?

WHY DOES TMZ KEEP REMOVING MY COMMENT ABOUT HOW THE PRICE OF DIAMONDS ARE ARTIFICIAL; THAT WADE GOT SCAMMED; AND THAT AS A BLACK COUPLE THEY SHOULD NOT BUY DIAMONDS BECAUSE THEY SHOULD NOT SUPPORT BLOOD DIAMONDS. TMZ REMOVED THE POST 3 TIMES. WHY?????
