That’s some big bling! Nicole Williams and Larry English of E!’s WAGS series got engaged on the season finale, which aired on Sunday, September 25.
Fans of the reality series (where the title is an acronym for wives and girlfriends of sportspersons) know that the model has rallied for a ring from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end for four years. By the looks of it, we’re sure it was worth the wait. Williams posted a photo of the ring on Monday, September 26, tagging Ritani, a jewelry company that specializes in engagement rings, in the snap.
Ritani shared details of the bauble, which costs over $250,000, in a September 26 Instagram post. “Larry helped design this stunning oval 6-carat Ritani ring himself,” the brand wrote. Additionally, Ritani tells Stylish that the center stone is set in 18-carat rose gold and surrounded by a diamond band covered with over 100 stones.
It's been SO hard keeping this a secret for so long!! Thanks to everyone for being so kind and supportive throughout this journey! My heart is so full!❤️ I get to marry my best friend! Pinch me! ekkkkk!! ?? Thank you SO much @ritani for helping Larry design the most beautiful ring my eyes have ever seen! ?
English, 30, surprised his longtime love in Thailand, where she was vacationing with the rest of the cast. But the proposal was almost thwarted in the September 18 episode, when Williams couldn’t get in touch with her future hubby since he was on a plane. Thankfully, all’s well that ends well. When they finally caught up, English gave a tearjerking speech before kneeling down on one knee and offering up the glittering stone.
“Hopefully from this point moving forward, we can get better, and I really felt like I had to come over here because you didn’t have nothin’ to wear on your left hand,” he said, pulling the piece of jewelry from a chain around his neck. “So I felt I needed to come over here to bring you something to weigh your left hand down a little bit more.”
Williams couldn't stop gushing in her September 26 post. “It's been SO hard keeping this a secret this long!!” she captioned the shot, where she rested her bejeweled hand atop English’s. “Thanks to everyone for being so kind and supportive throughout this journey! My heart is so full!❤️ I get to marry my best friend! Pinch me! ekkkkk!! 🙉🙈 Thank you SO much @ritani for helping Larry design the most beautiful ring my eyes have ever seen! 😍”
