Battle of the Bling: Jessica vs. Vanessa

Some naysayers think it's too convenient to be simply coincidence: A week after Nick Lachey popped the question to longtime girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo, Jessica Simpson's boyfriend of six months, former NFL player Eric Johnson, proposed to her. Whether it's serendipity or jealousy, both ladies are sporting some seriously stunning bling!

Jessica's: A five-carat ruby stone accompanied by two three-carat diamonds, $150,000.

Vanessa's: A four-carat Asscher-cut diamond surrounded by two diamonds and a diamond-encrusted band on a platinum setting, $100,000.

So whose ring would you rather wear—Jessica's uniquely colored Neil Lane statement piece, or Vanessa's sparkling Bader & Garrin classic?
