Is Carrie Underwood sporting a RITANI engagement ring?

There have been some people in the industry that believe based on the photos that the ring is anywhere between 5 to 12 carats. The cost of the ring has also varied by experts between $150,000 to $1,000,000. That is a pretty big discrepancy.
A representative at New York’s Diamond Information Center said the five-carat round diamond engagement ring with diamond sidestones cost more than $150,000. On the upper scale, a diamond expert and chief executive of myjewelrybox.com determined that, based on website photos, the engagement ring had about 12 carats and estimated it was worth more than $1 million.
Mo Charania, a gemologist and owner of Jubilee Jewellers at Bayshore Searching Centre, said it appeared the ring was at least 3 carats, maybe more, and was definitely price six figures. Mo Charania is also a high ranking official in the Canadian Jewelers Association and the Official Jeweler of the Ottawa Senators Hockey Club.
“It’s a center round diamond and one row of diamonds around it called micro pave,” Charania said after viewing photos of the ring on Underwood’s finger that were taken by a Citizen photographer at Monday’s game. Micro pave settings are intricate and use the smallest possible diamonds to achieve a uniform glitter on the ring’s surface. Sometimes, the tiny claws on the outside can hold 30 or more stones.
“I’d say the ring is worth well into six figures, but it depends on the quality of the stone,” he said. the exact size, color and clarity play a significant role in the overall value of the engagement ring.
There’s no evidence to suggest that Senators forward Mike Fisher bought the ring for his new fiancée at a local jewelry store. The engagement ring could have either been purchased through a private jeweler or at a U.S. jewelry store that specializes in high end, fine-quality jewelry, Charania said. He says Fisher didn’t purchase the ring at his shop, although other Senators players, including Jason Spezza, have purchased some jewelry there.
Fisher and Underwood were engaged Sunday after a year-long relationship and the Senators forward finally confirmed the news to reporters after Monday’s morning skate at Scotiabank Place.
Underwood flashed the ring for the first time at that night’s game against the Boston Bruins. Charania said Underwood’s ring could be compared to rings by RITANI (http://www.ritani.com), a world-renowned maker of diamond engagement rings and other jewelry. We would have to beleive that as the Official Jeweler of the Ottawa Senators Hockey Club, Charania would have to know more information about the ring.
Is it in fact a RITANI engagement ring or at least inspired by the world renowned RITANI designs? One would have to wonder? Either way, this diamond is definitely Carrie’s best friend and an expensive friend at that!
