The ring is estimated to be worth $3million
‘The trilogy ring appears to feature an emerald cut diamond weighing somewhere between 20-25 karats, depending on the width and depth,’ Taylor & Hart Design Director, Kate Earlam-Charnley told DailyMail.com though noted it was difficult to see the entire ring in the photos available.
‘The center diamond looks to measure a massive 22mm (0.8 inches) in length and is flanked on either side by trapezoid diamonds that look to be approximately 1kt each,’ Kate added.
‘Assuming the diamonds possess excellent quality characteristics, the estimated price for the ring is between $2.7 million and $3.4 million dollars.’
Kathryn Money, Brilliant Earth’s SVP of Merchandising & Retail Expansion, had a lower estimate, however.

She told DailyMail.com: ‘Bethenny’s beautiful ring appears to feature a 8-10 carat emerald-cut center diamond flanked by two trapezoid side stones and set on a white gold or platinum band.’
And Money added, ‘Depending on the quality and specific characteristics of the center stone, we estimate the cost of the ring between approximately $750,000 to $1,000,000.’
And a third jeweler also weighed in: ‘This gorgeous three-stone sparkler is approximated to be a 6-7 carat emerald-cut center stone accented by 2-3 carat trapezoid diamonds in a classic platinum band setting for a total of 10-12 carats,’ said Tonia Zehrer, Signet Senior Vice President, Chief Merchandising Officer. Signet is the parent company of the world’s largest diamond retailers such as Kay, Zales and Jared.
‘Depending on the quality of the stones, we believe this ring is easily over $400,000.’
The design – which resembles Jennifer Lopez’s incredible engagement ring from Alex Rodriguez – looks to be custom made for the reality TV siren.
The rock is much bigger than the Kristen Farrell 6.5-carat pear-shaped ring worth about $150,000 that Jason Hoppy gave Frankel in October 2009.
People broke the news that the couple is engaged.
The Skinnygirl founder and 42-year-old real Bernon have an interesting past. They started dating in 2018, split from in late 2020 and got back together with earlier this year.

Frankel’s spokesperson did not immediately return calls to DailyMail.com for comment.
The 50-year-old star has also recently finalized her divorce from Jason Hoppy after a long and contentious divorce process, according to PageSix.
They reached the financial agreement in 2016.
But then spent the next five years arguing over the custody of their only child, Bryn, who is now aged 10.
They can’t quit each other: Bethenny and Paul had split in October last year. But in January the two seemed to be back on as she sat on his lap while they paid a visit to Miami-based artist Romero Britto’s studio
Bethenny and Paul had split in October last year.
But in January the two seemed to be back on as she sat on his lap while they paid a visit to Miami-based artist Romero Britto’s studio.
The couple looked very much together in the video from Britto, which showed the ever-elegant Bethenny donning a palm frond skirt, fringed jacket and pearls.
They proceeded to go Instagram official with their reunion in February 2021.
Frankel and Bernon began dating in 2018 after her boyfriend Dennis Shields passed away at the age of 51 at the Trump Tower in New York City.
His official cause of death was listed as ‘undetermined’ since no autopsy was performed; there were reports he had suffered an overdose.
Bethenny was often seen with Paul on vacation in Europe as well as on the red carpet.
But they went their separate ways in October 2018. The Bravo alum explained that there was nothing bitter between the two, but rather ‘some things just don’t continue’ while appearing on the Ellen show shortly after the split.
At the time, she said the single life was fine: ‘I’m good, I’m good. You know, not everything works out!

‘So many people have tried to define my life – our lives – with “When are you getting engaged? When are you having a baby? When are you getting married?”‘
‘And I’ve just realized more in life, with people being more open and honest about their lives and what they want, that everything doesn’t have to sort of end in a blue box and a bow.
‘We’ve had a great, great relationship and I’m really happy. Not everything has to end badly, some things just don’t continue and it’s not negative it’s just life.’
As far as finalizing her divorce from Hoppy, PageSix has claimed that a judge ‘signed off’ the papers on January 20.

The two then had a rough patch then split in December 2012 as Bethenny filed for divorce one month later.
From December 2012 until January 2021, Bethenny and Jason had a bitter fight over money and their daughter Bryn.
In 2017 an order was placed against Hoppy as he was charged with ‘harassing and stalking’ the reality TV maven in New York City. Jason then had to stay away from his ex for six months.
In October 2020 Frankel shocked fans when she said on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live that she was still technically wed to Hoppy.
The actress was married to Peter Sussman for one year in 1996 before she tied the knot with Hoppy.
