Avril Lavigne wed Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger a year ago, and now he's given his wife an outrageous piece of jewelry to mark the occasion.
- Avril Lavigne
I still can't believe my 1 year anniversary gift. 17 carat emerald cut. Wow. I love my hubby. http://t.co/hOdMxy5uEA
Here's a closer look at the 17-carat stunner.
Avril's engagement ring was nothing to sneeze at. Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger gave her a 14-carat stunner that is so big, we're not sure how she moves her hand.
- La Toya Jackson
La Toya Jackson's engagement ring is a whopping 17.5 carats. That bling nearly takes up her whole hand!
- Evelyn Lozada's 14.5-carat diamond
Evelyn Lozada, 37, got engaged to baseball player Carl Crawford on Christmas Day. The pregnant reality star posted a photo of her mammoth rock on Instagram along with a single word: YES! PEOPLE reports that the custom-made ring is a 14.5-carat diamond.
Sources close to TMZ say the rock cost Crawford around $1.4 million.
- Gabrielle Union's 8.5-carat diamond
Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade announced their engagement on Dec. 20th. 'Sooooo this happened...#Yessss,' Union posted on Instagram.
Her stunning 8.5 carat cushion cut diamond ring also came with diamond earrings and diamond studs. The rock reportedly set Wade back $1 million.
- Kim Kardashian's 15-carat diamond
Kim Kardashian shared her joy (and this stunning rock) with the world when she posted this photo to Instagram. The two got engaged on Oct. 21st. Kanye West picked a 15-carat diamond for Kim, and it reportedly cost between $4 to $5 million.
- Ciara's 15-carat stunner
Ciara's fiance, rapper Future, surprised her with a 15-carat, $500K engagement ring on her 28th birthday in October.
- Kaley Cuoco's 2.5-carat stunner
The 'Big Bang Theory' actress and her tennis player love Ryan Sweeting got engaged in September after three months of dating.
Her gorgeous ring is an impressive 2.5-carat sparkler. It reportedly cost around $65,000.
- Scarlett Johansson
On Sept. 4th, a rep for Scarlett Johansson confirmed that she and Romain Dauriac were indeed engaged. He reportedly popped the question about a month earlier.
There's no word on the price of her Art Deco stunner.
- Ashley Tisdale
The 'High School Musical' star and fiance Christopher French got engaged on Aug. 8th. French reportedly popped the question on the 103rd floor of the Empire State Building in NYC.
It's hard to miss the enormous square-cut gem that some have described as a 'planet.'
- Naya Rivera
On Oct. 3, 'Glee' star Naya Rivera and 25-year-old rapper Big Sean confirmed their engagement.
Celebrity jewelry expert Michael O'Connor told E! that he estimates the ring is '3.5 carats to four, but closer to four carats with a platinum setting. The diamond looks to be in very good quality, of course, so her ring probably retailed at around $70,000."
- Lauren Conrad
On Oct. 13, the ecstatic celeb posted this photo of her gorgeous engagement ring.
In a post on her website entitled 'We're Engaged,' she wrote: 'William and I are overwhelmed by all of your warm wishes. Thank you so much for sharing in this special moment.'
Her fiance, William Tell, is a USC law student who Something Corporate fans may recognize as the band's former guitarist and backing vocalist.
It's clearly been quite the 12 months for Avril and Chad. The 29-year-old took to Twitter to share a photo of their special day -- and while their smiles are sweet, it's that HUGE bling we're all staring at.
"I still can't believe my 1 year anniversary gift," she wrote. "17 carat emerald cut. Wow. I love my hubby."
This massive new bling is bigger than her engagement ring, which was a 14-carat whopper. But get this: she has an even bigger one. She got a 20-carat stunner on her wedding day. Guess Chad really wanted to put a ring on it ... and then another ... and then another ...
Avril and Chad met while co-writing a song, and six months later, he popped the question. They tied the knot in the South of France, and the bride wore black.
