Ashton Meem's engagement ring

As the Seattle Seahawks quarterback got on her knees to propose to Ciara, the RnB singer, with a 5 karat ring, most people were not happy, including the ex-wife.

Meem changed the Twitter profile photo to flaunt the 8-karat diamond ring she was given during her engagement to Russell. Even though Meem's ring is bigger, Ciara's ring has better quality.

"This is one incredible ring," high-end jeweller David Harris told Hollywood Life in an exclusive report Friday. "This brilliant cut solitaire is approximately 12 to 15 karats and looks to be a D through F colourless diamond, which means it's a really good diamond. I would estimate the centre stone to be worth between $2 and $2.5 million based on one which I recently sold to a very wealthy client."
