Pro athletes make bank, so when they propose to their ladies they really know how to put a ring on it. Case in point: the massive chunk of bling that L.A. Dodgers player Carl Crawford recently gave to his soon-to-be wife and baby mama, Evelyn Lozada. Carl popped the question on Christmas Day, and considering the massive stunner Carl slipped onto her hand, we can’t say we’re terribly shocked that she said yes.
The Basketball Wives star’s ring is reportedly a whopping 14.5 carats, and is said to be worth about $1.4 million. Not too shabby for a guy who signed a $142 million contract with the Dodgers! Ev’s Jason of Beverly Hills rock is huge, but as soon as we laid eyes on it we remembered another hunk of ice that is at least just as impressive, if not more so, but we’ll let you be the judge of that.
In 2011, former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak married Atlanta Falcons player Kroy Biermann, and the pro athlete gave a similar (though slightly smaller) ring to his lady love. Kimmie’s ring also features a center stone with several smaller diamonds around it, but her ring clocks in at a total of 10 carats, which is the size of Evelyn’s center stone alone. Still, Kroy designed Kim’s hand candy all by himself, so we think he should get some bonus points for his effort.
We’ve put together a handy split of both rings above, so you can see them side-by-side and then decide: Whose rock do you like better, Evelyn’s iceberg or Kim’s thoughtful stunner? Tell us your thoughts below!
