Paul Bernon’s new Bethenny Frankel engagement ring is priced between six and seven digits, experts say.
The “Real Housewives of New York” star, 50, was spotted with a massive diamond ring on her finger while on vacation in Florida this weekend – and now experts are weighing in on the cost of the sparkler.
“Looks like she was wearing a three-stone ring that features a huge 8-10 carat emerald-shaped center stone set with two small emerald accent diamonds that we estimate to be around 3 carats in total,” Apeksha Kothari , COO of RareCarat.com, shared with Page Six Style on Tuesday.

“If this is a true natural diamond, I would estimate its retail value up to $ 1 million for an emerald-shaped natural diamond ring of this size,” continued the director of the ‘exploitation. “And if not … probably less than $ 5,000 like a good fake.”
