Johnny Depp proposed to Amber Heard on Christmas Eve, but the much-ballyhooed 5-carat engagement ring — estimated to be worth $100,000 — had been kept mostly under wraps. Only recently, has the paparazzi been able to focus in on the impressive sparkler, and we can say it’s been worth the wait.
A 5-carat round diamond set in white metal (likely platinum) highlights the vintage-style ring, whose ornate gallery sparkles with round accent diamonds graduating from large to small to conform to the tapering of the mounting.
Heard proudly wore the ring to the world premiere of her new movie, 3 Days to Kill. The 27-year-old Heard, who has a starring role in the film, attended the high-profile Los Angeles event with her famous fiancé.
Heard was most certainly rocking the 5-carat dazzler this past Friday at her star-studded engagement bash at LA’s Carondelt House, a private Italian-themed villa built in the 1920s. The Daily Mail reported that Depp was spotted at the event wearing a signet-style engagement ring on his left hand.
Among the A-listers celebrating with the happy couple were Steven Tyler, Jerry Bruckheimer, Mandy Moore, Ryan Adams, Marilyn Manson, Andy Garcia and music producer Rick Rubin.
E! News reported that guests were required to show a special invitation to get into the exclusive event. Invitees all received a black envelope printed with the initials “A” and “J.” Inside the envelope was what appeared to be a golden ticket, paying homage, perhaps, to Depp’s starring role as Willy Wonka in 2005’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
The couple met on the set of their 2011 film The Rum Diary and began dating in June of 2012. The couple is rumored to be planning a wedding on Depp’s private island in the Bahamas.
