Avril Lavigne’s romantic heart shaped diamond engagement ring
Avril Lavigne and Mod Sun have announced their engagement following a romantic proposal in Paris last month. The couple got engaged while riding down the Seine River in a private boat, surrounded by a violinist, champagne, and roses. Sharing the news, Avril revealed how her heart-shaped diamond pavé engagement ring symbolises their love story.

It has the words ‘Hi Icon’ engraved in it which were the first words he ever said to me. And it has Mod + Avril on the inside.
Mod proposed with a custom designed heart-shaped diamond ring that features a diamond pavé band finished with heartfelt personal inscriptions.
‘He knew from the very beginning I wanted a heart-shaped diamond’, Lavigne adds, ‘because on the day we met, we had matching heart-shaped paved rings on. We’ve worn them every day since, so it’s only fitting to have a heart-shaped engagement ring. I love it so much.’
Featuring a 5ct heart shape centre diamond set upon a dainty diamond pavé platinum band, this design is perfectly suited to Avril’s ‘punk-rock princess’ style and legacy. If set with a natural diamond, we estimate the ring to be worth approximately £250,000, or $325,000. If set with a lab grown diamond, we anticipate the ring would cost significantly less at around £45,000 or $60,000. The playful yet sentimental shape of the diamond embodies everything that love should be. And Lavigne isn’t the only star to sport a heart cut diamond. Nicki Minaj, Rochelle Humes, and Lady Gaga all have engagement rings that feature a heart shaped centre diamond.

Avril Lavigne’s heart shape diamond—which we estimate to be around 5 carats—is instantly recognisable as a symbol of love, with a silhouette that’s compelling beyond its inherent sweetness.
The heart shape combines aspects of several popular diamond shapes, with the soft curves of the oval and cushion and the angular point found on a pear or marquise. With the diamond mounted on a clean and delicate diamond pavé band, this heart diamond takes centre stage in the design.
Avril’s ring highlights how special an engraving can be. Her fiancée Mod Sun had his first words to her as well as their names engraved on the ring, showcasing how an inscription can be one of the most heartfelt ways to personalise an engagement ring.
