WWE superstar John Cena, proposed to his long-time girlfriend Nikki Bella in front of fans at WrestleMania 33 on Sunday, April 2. While the proposal itself was incredibly romantic, the extravagant engagement ring is something that we can’t stop swooning over.
The stunning sparkler features a six prong set round 4.5 carat center diamond and about a half carat of round diamonds that are embellished on the band. Exuding exceptional clarity and color, the diamonds are set in platinum. In a short video posted on the Bella Twins’ YouTube page, the wrestling pro revealed the thought behind his choice.
He stated that the 5-carat customized ring was a representation of their entire relationship. “If you look at the stones on the side, there are four individual stones on each side. One side represents me and one side represents her and the four means the years we’ve been together to come to center point”, he added. According to reports, John Cena is believed to have spent about $115,000 on the engagement ring.
John and Nikki had begun dating back in 2012 after meeting each other through the WWE. Though they started out as friends, the relationship quickly turned into romance after John asked Nikki out. The 39-year-old wrestler was initially resistant to the idea of marriage but eventually found his ideal match. John proposed to Nikki after the two defeated The Miz and Maryse in a tag team match at WrestleMania 33 in Orlando, Florida.
