After 5 years of dating, Blake has finally put a ring on it – and he wasn’t messing around!

The longtime musician couple officially became engaged on October 17th, 2020 after five years of dating and according to one expert in diamonds and jewelry – this custom-built engagement ring is worth nearly a million dollars!

Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani have been dating since right around Halloween 2015 – after both of them had ended their previous marriages earlier that year. The pair first met on the set of The Voice, but it wasn’t until they were each going through similar divorces that they really connected and formed an inseparable bond.

Now, five years after they began dating, the two are back on the set of The Voice for 2020’s fall season and they are more in love than ever before!

For years, both Blake and Gwen have been coy about their plans for marriage again and have dodged the question many times during interviews and appearances.

Now, Blake Shelton has finally decided it’s the right time to ask for her hand in marriage – and she said yes!

In a post to social media, both Blake and Gwen shared a cute photo of a kiss between them with her hand sporting a giant ring held up for the camera to see.

In an in-depth analysis of this photo and the ring that Gwen was showing off, jewelry expert Katie Zimmerman from Blue Niles told Refinery29 that her estimate of the engagement ring is valued between $700,000 and $800,000.

Zimmerman says that it’s either a round or oval cut diamond with a total weight ranging from eight to 10 carats and is “set in a solitaire or simple pavé platinum setting.”

“While round cuts are most popular (and most expensive due to high demand), we’ve watched fancy shapes such as oval become more and more sought after, especially with style icons Blake Lively and Hailey Bieber rocking ovals on their ring fingers,” she explained.

Other experts have been more conservative in their valuations, but they still estimate it to have cost a cool half-million at the very least.

While we won’t know the exact details until Blake or Gwen share them with us, it’s clear that Blake is a very traditional fella and put a lot of time, effort, and money into making sure he got the perfect ring.
