Jersey Shores Jwoww Engaged! Details on her Engagement Ring!

Photos of Jersey Shore star JWoww’s engagement ring have finally hit the Internet over the weekend, and the consensus is that the ring is, well, wow! The reality starlet (real name Jenni Farley) finally had her fairy tale dreams come true when her boyfriend, Roger Mathews, popped the question while the couple was skydiving this past week.
Now that we’ve seen photos of the diamond engagement ring, we have to hope that Mathews didn’t pull the ring out while the two were jumping out of the airplane. That rock is big—even by Jersey Shore engagement ring standards. JWoww’s engagement ring is centered around a fabulous 5- carat cushion-cut diamond.
And like all celebrity engagement rings, the diamond is only the beginning. The diamond is set in an incredible setting, a white gold pavé setting with a 2.5 total carat weight melée of pink and white diamonds.
Yes—that’s right. Pink diamonds. Celebrity engagement ring designer Layna Friedman, who designed JWoww’s ring, reveals that when Mathews approached her and asked about designing a custom diamond engagement ring for JWoww, his first request was that the ring includes something pink, JWoww’s favorite color. So the final ring design features six small round pink diamonds set in yellow gold prongs surrounding the center stone. While Friedman wouldn’t reveal the exact price for this ring, like all her other celebrity engagement rings, she did say that a similar ring from her collection would cost in the range of $100,000. We have to guess that JWoww’s engagement ring to Roger cost even more than that, as it was custom-designed.
JWoww’s hundred-grand ring is the most expensive ring in the Jersey Shore engagement ring canon, so far! Even JWoww’s more famous costar and BFF Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi announced her own engagement back in March 2012 with a dazzling celebrity engagement ring of her own. Snooki’s fiancé Jionni LeValle surprised her with a ring worth $55,000. The 3.02 carat diamond in a 2 carat diamond melée was spotted on Snooki’s finger weeks before she announced her engagement, which was followed by her pregnancy announcement. Snooki’s baby followed in September 2012, and although the pint-size reality starlet has not announced her wedding plans yet, we can only imagine that it will be one of the most fun celebrity weddings of the decade. (Maybe Jersey Shore costar Pauly D will DJ!) And now that JWoww is engaged, the two best friends (who are currently starring together on the spinoff show Snooki and JWoww) can do a show about over-the-top celebrity weddings!
