Nickelback's Chad Kroeger Buys Wife Avril Lavigne 17-Carat Anniversary Ring
The 29 year-old singer is one lucky lady!
Avril Lavigne is a very lucky lady, and Chad Kroeger definitely knows how to keep his wife happy. The married couple celebrated their first wedding anniversary at the start of last month, and to mark the occasion the rock singer bought his love a whopping 17-carat Anniversary ring.
Lavigne and Kroeger have been married for one year
Astonishingly, when Kroeger first popped the question to Lavigne in the spring 2013 he gifted her with a beautiful 14-carat pear-shaped diamond ring, but he must have felt she deserved a more impressive piece of jewellery after surviving their first year of being man and wife.
The 29 year-old singer briefly uploaded a photograph of the huge ring on Twitter on Thursday (July 31st) while the pair smile and embrace each other. "I still can't believe my 1 year anniversary gift. 17 carat emerald cut. Wow. I love my hubby," she captioned the picture.
Morgan Shara of MAS Creative gave her expert opinion of the ring to E!News, saying, "Emerald diamonds are one of the most classic and elegant cuts." Although MAS did not make the ring, Shara thinks "Avril's ring could be anywhere from several hundred thousand [dollars] to in the millions, depending on color and clarity."
Kroeger and Lavigne became engaged after dating for only a month
This loving gesture seems to be one of many that Kroeger has performed in their relationship, but unsurprisingly one of his most romantic endeavours was the way he proposed to Lavigne in August 2012, one month after they began dating.
"He proposed in the studio," Avril told Ryan Seacrest in April 2013. "I have been making this scrapbook of my time in the studio with a Polaroid camera and the only thing that was weird was I walked into the studio and he was putting a picture in to the book and I was like 'What is he doing?'.And all of a sudden I walk over and he had taken a photo of himself holding the ring box and put the Polaroid in my scrapbook and because I had stickers everywhere he put in 'Will you marry me?' It was really romantic."
