Hailey Baldwin Engagement Ring Cost

In a plot twist that literally nobody saw coming, Justin Bieber announced he was engaged to Hailey Baldwin last week. Biebs popped the question to his on-again off-again girlfriend (they had only been back on for a month but who's counting!) during a holiday in the Bahamas earlier this month.

Naturally, all attention turned to the ring, which is, of course, massive.

Now, details are emerging on the sparkler, which was designed by Solow & Co. diamonds, a fine jeweler based in New York City. According to reports, the ring is 10-carats and cost upwards of $500,000 USD, which converts to roughly $675,000 AUD. Casual!

Speaking to E! News, Jack Solow of Solow & Co. revealed the brief Justin Bieber gave him when creating the ring. "It was about the diamond," he says. "I think [Justin] knew very well what Hailey wanted in a ring, but he wanted it very much to be about a very special diamond. He left it in my hands to try and select the most beautiful diamond for someone like Hailey."

Justin confirmed his engagement to 21-year-old model Hailey on Instagram, with a long, heartfelt post declaring his love for her. "Hailey, I am sooo in love with everything about you!" he wrote. "So committed to spending my life getting to know every single part of you and loving you patiently and kindly."

Hailey herself posted to Twitter, without acknowledging the engagement directly, writing "Not sure what I did in life to deserve such happiness but I am so utterly grateful to God for giving me such an incredible person to share my life with!"

For now, we eagerly await wedding details.
