When Millie Bobby Brown hinted at her engagement to Jake Bongiovi on April 11, 2023, via Instagram, what really grabbed everyone’s attention was the glittering diamond ring on her left hand. Now, three days after the Stranger Things actress subtly announced the news, she's giving fans an even closer look at her engagement ring. On April 13, 2023, Brown uploaded a video to announce her latest project, Florence by Mills Coffee, which she said has always been a dream of hers. At the end of the clip, the Enola Holmes star blew her followers a kiss, exhibiting a close-up shot of the sparkler.
According to Kathryn Money, SVP of merchandizing and retail expansion at Brilliant Earth, the star’s engagement ring appears to be a cushion-cut or round-cut diamond with a cushion-shaped halo on a pavé band. Money explains to Brides that the estimated price point of the ring costs anywhere between $75,000 to $100,000. Olivia Landau, GIA-certified gemologist and founder of The Clear Cut, told Page Six that the rock is between three to three-and-a-half carats. “Round [diamonds] are timeless, super classic, and will never go out of style,” she says.
Brown first revealed her engagement and gave her followers a glimpse at her diamond ring two days earlier. To share the news, she posted a black-and-white photo of herself and her fiancé, the son of musician Jon Bon Jovi, wrapping their arms around one another on the beach. The Damsel actress captioned the photo by quoting Taylor Swift’s song “Lover.” “I’ve loved you three summers now, honey,” she wrote. “I want ‘em all.”
Bongiovi also shared a tribute to his engagement on his Instagram account. He uploaded a snap of himself and his fiancée on the beach during sunrise or sunset and another one of the two of them on what appears to be a boat during the daytime. “Forever 🤍,” his caption said. The couple’s friends and fans immediately shared their well-wishes. Actress Amybeth McNulty commented, “YESSSS!!!!!!!🤍🤍." Gordon Ramsay’s daughter, Holly Ramsay, wrote, “!!!! Congratulations ❤️❤️❤️❤️,” while her sister, Tilly Ramsay, posted, “Congratulations 🏻❤️!! Xx.”
According to People, the duo first sparked dating rumors in June of 2021 when they posted a selfie together on social media. That November, the two of them confirmed that they were an item. To kick off 2023, the actress opened up about how her relationship with Bongiovi made 2022 a success and how she’s looking forward to another year with him. “Endlessly in love with the year I've had!” she exclaimed. “Grateful for my friends, family, donkey (bernard), my doggies, my puppies teeth, and my partner for life. Here's to another year with you and the wonderful people and animals around us 🤍 let's do it again but better!"
