NFL players always manage to score major touchdowns when selecting the perfect engagement ring for their brides-to-be, and Larry English is no exception. The defensive end recently proposed to his girlfriend, WAGS' Nicole Williams, with a dazzling diamond that would rival any old Superbowl ring. Seriously, her new beautiful engagement ring is HUGE. And we have all of the details on that megawatt rock!
The WAGS star (that's wives and girlfriends of professional athletes for the non-reality show obsessed) is updating her show status from girlfriend to wife-to-be after her longtime love finally got down on one knee on the recently-aired season two finale of WAGS. After four years of dating, English surprised Williams while she was in Thailand for an epic proposal — and with a ring to match!
"I really felt like I had to come over here because you didn't have nothin' to wear on your left hand. So I felt I needed to come over here to bring you something to weigh your left hand down a little bit more," English told his new fiancé, slipping a seriously stunning Ritani engagement ring on her hand.
Williams of course said yes and now has a major piece of bling to show off! According to People, English spent months designing the custom engagement ring for his fiancé. The flawless center stone, an oval-cut diamond, weighs in at 5.14-carats and sits on an 18-carat rose gold band covered with over 100 smaller round-cut stones. The total cost? Over $250,000. We're fanning ourselves over here...
"This is the one thing that Nicole will wear every day for the rest of her life," English told E! News of the design process, adding that he requested the addition of the finished ring's halo as it gave the piece "a romantic and vintage-inspired look." The groom's biggest concern? "I want to make sure it sparkles," he said.
That it most definitely does!
