Shane Warne proposed to Elizabeth Hurley with a stunning blue sapphire engagement ring worth nearly $100,000.
“[It’s a] platinum setting with an approximate 9-carat center blue sapphire and a 2-carat Trillion cut diamond on each side,” jewelry expert Michael O’Connor tells UsMagazine.com. “Shane made the right choice by setting the sapphire in platinum, since platinum doesn’t change color or fade – so it symbolizes a relationship that will endure. “Shane Warne is clearly a romantic,” O’Connor adds. “Since not only is blue sapphire a favorite of British royalty, but it’s also his birthstone!”
Warne and Hurley got engaged over the weekend at the Old Course Hotel in Scotland.
