Avril Lavigne Presents a Close-Up Look at Her Stunning 14-Carat Engagement Ring; Yes, That's Carat With a 'C'

Rocker Avril Lavigne took to Instagram on Tuesday to treat her fans to a rare close-up view of her magnificent 14-carat engagement ring. Yes, that’s carat with a “c.”


In August of 2012, we learned that Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger proposed to Lavigne with a vintage-style platinum engagement ring, featuring a 10-carat pear-shaped center stone accented on each side with specially cut half-moon-shaped diamonds totaling an additional 4 carats.

At the time, jewelry expert Michael O'Connor estimated the ring’s value at $350,000. Sadly, the photos released in August were taken at a distance and failed to reveal the ring’s finer details.


All that changed on Tuesday, when Lavigne and her fiancĂ© appeared on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show to talk about Lavigne’s new single, the couple’s wedding plans, Kroeger’s romantic proposal and the fabulous ring that still has the bride-to-be swooning.

Lavigne, whose new single is titled "Here's to Never Growing Up," said that her relationship with Kroeger started as a simple song-writing collaboration, but quickly turned into something much bigger.


"We met in the studio, wrote a bunch of songs together, became really good friends, and now we have a wedding coming up soon," she told Seacrest.

The couple had been dating for only a month when Kroeger popped the question in early August. Lavigne revealed for the first time how Kroeger delivered his sweet and romantic proposal — at a recording studio.

According Lavigne, she had been making a scrapbook filled with cute stickers and Polaroid photos recounting her time in the studio. On one special day, she walked into the facility and caught Kroeger adding a photo to the book.

“He had taken a photo of himself holding a ring box,” said Lavigne. “He put the Polaroid in my scrapbook along with a sticker that said, ‘Will you marry me.’ It was really romantic.”

The couple did not announce a wedding date, but did confirm that plans are in the works.
