I was blushing the moment I heard Ciara and boyfriend Future are engaged earlier this week because she looks so damn happy. Future proposed over the weekend (and of course, the singer said yes!) while the couple was celebrating Ciara's 28th birthday here in NYC. The singer quickly tweeted that the day was "one of the sweetest of her life" and joked that if she were dreaming not to wake her up. Like seriously, does it get better than that?
Well actually, it does ... in the form of her 15-carat engagement ring. Photos of the ring (right) flocked onto the Interwebs yesterday after Ciara sported her new bling from Avianne & Co. to a birthday party Monday night at the Moet Rose Lounge in Houston. That thing. That ring. Is. Major.
Sorry Kim Kardashian, but as far as over-the-top celebrity engagement rings go, I'm on Team Ciara. Let's take an even closer look at Ciara's 15 carats, shall we?
I feel like it's necessary to pose the question: Is there such a thing as too much bling? I mean, in the circles that these Hollywood elite run in, maybe not. But the fact is that if you're an average Joe walking around with 15 carats on your ring finger, that's just not normal. For me, I'd be uncomfortable. I want a ring that is something I can wear day-in and day-out. I want something that's practical yet beautiful, something that allows me to wear it instead of it to wear me, youknowwhatI'msayin'?
Regardless, there's no denying that Ciara's ring is gorgeous. Congrats to you two lovebirds!
Do you think too much bling is a bad thing?
