After only two months of dating, Lilly Ghalichi became one engaged Persian princess after her entrepreneur boyfriend Dahr Mann popped the question with a whopping 15-carat engagement diamond ring.
Celebuzz.com has all the ring details, straight from jewelry designer Mike Nekta himself who cut and designed the Shahs of Sunset star’s ring from the rough. He revealed that Ghalicihi’s sparkler actually came from a whooping 30-carat stone, which he later made into two stones. He notes that Ghalichi is now wearing the larger of the two stones and definitely the purest of the rough.
Nekta further explains that the diamond is a type IIA Golconda diamond, an extremely rare, flawless and colorless stone. It is a pear brilliant cut with approximately 150 to 200 smaller side diamonds adorning it, totaling to an extra 1.65 carats.
Ghalichi was said to have borrowed a similar ring from Netka for a recent TV appearance and loved it so much, wanting to purchase it but it wasn’t available, as it has already been sold. Netka said that Mann actually called him to ask about the ring and since it was no longer available, ended up buying a much bigger diamond instead.
Mann paid a total of $1.2 million for the ring, which was already priced down from the its original $2.6 million price tag. Nekta also went on to say that the special jewelry piece happens to be fit for the smallest finger and s the biggest diamond he has ever custom designed.
In a sweet message posted online, Mann says to Ghalichi on their engagement:
“When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with someone, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible. I know some people laugh when they hear it has only been two months, but I could’ve told you were the one after two minutes. I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you.”
