Nov 30, 2021 ByClaire Miles

Lindsay Lohan is getting married. The actress and socialite announced her engagement to boyfriend Bader Shammas on Instagram this past weekend.  Lohan shared images of herself with Shammas alongside a diamond engagement ring with the caption: “My love. My life. My family. My future.”

No details have yet been shared around the ring outside of the jeweler. Lohan tagged American jeweler Harry Winston in her post. Winston’s jewelry company was first founded in 1932 in New York City. Dubbed the “King of Diamonds” by Cosmopolitan magazine in 1947, Winston and his company have earned themselves a reputation for their elite and celebrity clientele.

Based on the appearance of the ring and the reputation of the jeweler, the ring has been estimated to cost between $125,000 and $250,000. Kathryn Money, the senior vice president of merchandising and retail at Brilliant Earth, a competing jewelry company, spoke to Insider and provided her expertise. In her estimation, the ring would have a hefty price tag of roughly $150,000.

“Lindsay’s beautiful ring appears to feature a 4-5 carat cushion cut set on a classic accented diamond band setting,” Money said to Insider, “depending on the quality and specific characteristics of the center stone, we estimate Lindsay’s ring cost to be between approximately $125,000 to $150,000.”

Additionally, Mike Fried, CEO of The Diamond Pro, spoke to Us Weekly and came to a similar conclusion to Money, giving the ring a price tag of “near $150,000 depending on the quality of the stone.”

Another expert in the industry who spoke to Insider, Apeksha Kothari, the COO of Rare Carat, expected the ring to have fetched well above these estimates: “I would estimate the center stone is a 6-carat square-shaped radiant or cushion. The three-stone ring setting has two lovely side stones to accent the center stone, and a thin band. With high color and high clarity, I would estimate the retail value at $250,000.”

The newly engaged couple have been dating since 2019, first meeting in Dubai, according to The Daily Mail.
