LeBron James Gets Engaged: Sweet Savannah’s Pear-Shaped Sparkler

Miami Heat superstar LeBron James and Savannah Brinson recently got engaged at a new year’s party at SL Nightclub in Miami. The happy couple has been dating since high school and has two children together, LeBron James, Jr., 11, and Bryce Maximus, 4.

Now on to the ring! James proposed with a stunning 5 carat pear shaped diamond ring. According to Aslam Bakshi, owner of Diamond Images USA, “The ring is a traditional Tiffany style ring with a pear shape diamond in the center along with two tapered diamond baguettes on each side. The center diamond should be at least 4-5 carats…with an approximate retail value of between $250,000 and $300,000.” Wow.

After the New Year’s countdown, LeBron surprised Savannah in front of other Miami Heat players, as well as friends and family. It was actually a real team effort as Heat guard Dwayne Wade kept the ring safe until the proposal and Heat forward Chris Bosh made sure that everything ran smoothly for the big moment.

“It was real cool,” LeBron said. “It was an opportunity for me with my personal life. She’s happy. My family is happy. That’s what it’s all about. It is a good point in my life right now. I’m very excited about both on the court and off the court.”

It’s too bad LeBron didn’t contact Truth About Diamonds before he decided to buy – we could have saved him a boatload of money (not that he needs it).  Here’s a beautiful 5.01 G SI1 that he could have gotten for $106,320 – less than half the estimated price he paid:
