Black love at its finest!
By now you probably all have heard about Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade’s recent engagement.
This past weekend the two announced their engagement in a series of his and hers photos via Instagram. The photos included Gabby’s stunning 8.5 carat ring that Dwyane picked out himself. The ring retails at nearly one million dollars.
Jason Arasheben, CEO of Jason of Beverly Hills, tells E News:
Dwyane was very particular about finding the right stone for Gabrielle. He was hands on in the process he and I worked together to make sure they got the perfect ring for Gabrielle. I made three personal visits to Miami to present different options until they found the perfect one. Wade picked out the stone and they made the ring custom. Dwayne Wade was 100% involved in the process.
Apparently Dwyane has been planning the engagement for the past three months and with the help of his boys he really pulled off the proposal. Dwayne told Tim from The Associated Press, that the proposal took place in the new house that they’ve been building for some quite some time now and it was nothing special it was just a regular Saturday night.
— His youngest son Zion held a sign with her name.
— His nephew Dahveon Morris’ sign said “Will you.”
— And his oldest son Zaire’s sign read “marry us?”
Just a regular Saturday. My kids were involved in it. We asked her to marry all of us, not just me. We’re a package deal, so it was cool.
And when asked about the ring, Dwyane stated:
I kind of know my lady. I know she’s simple, but at the same time, I just wanted the rock to kind of speak for itself and not do too much with the diamonds. I think it’s a simple ring, but it’s nice. It was nicely done … it’s timeless.
