Good eye @nala !

Ty! Wow. Wish they would spill the stats on both!



Some more info. Including Melania's ring. I adore Melania's ring.


Michelle Obama's ring:
“Her new elegant ring features an approximately 3-carat princess or cushion cut center diamond in a white gold pavé diamond accented setting.
The expert pointed out that, depending on many factors, the cost of Michelle’s second ring could be estimated between $30,000 and $50,000."

Does Michelle wear her wedding band on the outside of the ER, not inside? Love her!

Good for her! Everyone deserves an upgrade (if they want one that is!).

Here are pictures of Michelle Obama’s rings side my side. The article I posted said both were round brilliants, the second article posted by @missy said that Michelle’s upgrade could be a cushion or princess cut. What cut do you think it is?

The ring on the right looks square to me. :)

ETA another link.

It seems she upgraded a couple of years ago.

Ok. So I didn’t want to start a new thread but since I think this is a reset, i posted here. Lol. Vanessa Bryant’s ig story—these are the best shots I could get. Wonder if there is a close up. This looks round or maybe I see round on everyone, lol.

I can honestly say I HATE this woman. I hate the fact she sued the pilot’s family after the accident that killed her husband and daughter. You think the pilot had a say when an important client orders him to fly regardless of e weather? You think he wanted to die that day? You think suing his family will bring your loved ones back? I don’t even want to comment on her ring. She tolerated Kobe’s cheating just to keep her wealth.

@jaysonsmom, I’m not really a fan of hers but I did start following her after his death. I do know some people who know her bc of the salon she frequented and they called her an arrogant ahole! She didn’t even have the common courtesy to greet employees! Recently she was in the news for kicking out her mom from the home Kobe allegedly gave her. I’m actually not a fan of this ring either— it looks monstrous! Anyhow, as much as I don’t like her—my heart aches for her and the loss of her daughter. If I lost my DD, I would lose it completely...grief makes us do some inexplicable things.

Michelle's stone looks round in this pic. It's hard to find a shot of it straight on so it definitely looks squarish in some pictures but I think it's just the prongs.

It does look round here. Is this the upgrade?

Yep! The original was set in yg. This pic is from 2010. The one above was from a book signing in 2018, I think.

I have to say it looks round in this photo.
Completely round. No question in my mind.

Isn't it weird we cannot definitively find stats on her ring? I wish she would join PS. :)

Thanks for this pic! I thought it looked round! It’s the 4 prong effect!
