Award winning country singer, Carrie Underwood, 26, has been dating Ottawa Senators hockey player Mike Fisher, 29, for more than a year, and turned up at his game against the Boston Bruins in Ottawa on Dec. 21 sporting some major ice of her own: a honker of an engagement ring.
But now the real sport is speculating on the size and price of the flashy bling and there’s some debate. The Diamond Information Center estimates it’s a five-plus carat, brilliant round diamond with a value of $150,000.
If you think that sounds pricey, an estimate by experts at www.myjewelry box.com who have examined a photograph of Underwood’s ring suggests the rock might be 12 carats, (awww, how cute – the same number as the hockey player’s jersey), VVS1 clarity and a color grade of F (this is a very good thing, fellas).
If that’s the case than the new er, bauble, could be worth $1.3, a substantial purchase for Fisher, whose yearly salary for playing center on the team is reportedly $4 million.
Then there’s the estimate from Scott Udell a gemologist and vice president at London Jewelers at the Americana Manhasset who says, “It probably ranges from five to seven carats, and it looks like a good color, somewhere in the classified color range of D, E, or F. The price? “Upwards of $200,000.”
In any case, whoo-eee!! That’s some ice from the iceman.
