Jeff Bezos and Lauren Sánchez recently attended the Cannes Film Festival, where they accompanied Apple CEO Tim Cook during the screening of Martin Scorsese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon,” an Apple Original Film. However, it wasn’t the film that garnered everyone’s attention. Instead, people were captivated by the new Lauren Sanchez engagement ring. If you’re curious about why this diamond ring is causing a buzz online, read on.

Who is Lauren Sánchez?

Lauren Sánchez is a multi-talented American personality who has made a name for herself as an Emmy award-winning journalist, news anchor, entertainment reporter, helicopter pilot, and entrepreneur.

In early 2019, the media was abuzz with news of her romantic relationship with Jeff Bezos, the Amazon founder. While she gained significant media attention due to her relationship with Jeff Bezos, Sanchez had already established herself in the media industry before her involvement with Bezos, garnering significant attention for her work.

Soon after news broke of Jeff Bezos and Lauren’s engagement, the newly engaged couple celebrated their engagement at La Petite Maison, where Jeff’s sister Christina and her husband, Steve Poore, joined them.

There is still limited information regarding Lauren’s engagement ring from Jeff Bezos. However, with multiple sightings in the southern region of France, some details regarding its design have surfaced.

Reports state that Lauren Sánchez’s ring allegedly features a cushion-cut diamond weighing 25-30 carats, with a four-prong setting securing it and a platinum band complementing it. The diamond itself reportedly possesses a D-color and a VVS clarity grade.

Estimated Value

Based on the images circulating the internet of Sanchez wearing the ring, some estimations suggest the diamond could be around 20 carats, placing its value at $2.5 million.

However, some have speculated that it could be 30 carats, with Maxwell Stone from Steven Stone Jewellers reportedly stating it could be worth as much as $3.5 million.

Publications like People magazine suggest that it could have a value ranging from $3 million to over $5 million.

Influence on Current Trends

Lauren’s use of a cushion-cut diamond for her ring reinforces the trend of round diamonds becoming less prominent among celebrities.

Engagement rings with round-cut diamonds have long been the most popular diamond shape, especially among celebrities in the 90s. However, they faded as the go-to choice beginning in the early 2000s. Trends indicate that celebrities now opting for more unique diamond shapes that better reflect their personality.
