Apparently, Kravis doesn’t watch Succession, because while we were busy watching Waystar Royco unravel in the season-three opener, Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker were getting engaged—and no, this is not a drill. On Sunday night, the former Blink-182 drummer got down on one knee on a rose-covered beach in Montecito, California, where he and Kardashian, who have been dating publicly since February, decided to be together forever. Or at least, that’s what Kardashian’s Instagram post from the evening would have us believe. “Forever,” she captioned two photos that gave us an up-close view of the candlelit beach locale.
Perhaps more important than the couple’s big news, though, is Kardashian’s big rock: a stunning oval-shaped engagement ring that Barker’s daughter, Alabama, showed off in an Instagram story that was taken at the couple’s post-engagement dinner. Kim Kardashian West later posted another video of it, zooming in on the ring, which, of course, is huge. According to Olivia Landau, the founder and CEO of The Clear Cut, Kardashian’s engagement ring is an oval-cut diamond estimated to be between eight and 10 carats. The stone is set in a platinum solitaire style with a thin pavé-diamond band, leading Landau to estimate that, depending on the true size and quality of the center stone, Kardashian’s engagement ring could be worth upward of $650,000.

Its particular shape has been especially popular in the last few years, following an influx of celebrity engagements that involved oval-shaped diamonds. “Oval diamonds have been the number one most popular and most requested diamond shape [at The Clear Cut] over the past three years,” says Landau. “Oval diamonds are super popular because they show their carat weight well.” Other A-listers that wear the style include Hailey Bieber, Blake Lively, Sarah Hyland, and Jasmine Tookes, just to name a few.
We get the feeling that wedding bells are just around the corner for 2021’s favorite couple for matching ’fits and PDA (sorry, Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly). In the meantime, catch up on their most recent sightings, and shop a few engagement rings that are Kravis-approved below.
