SEE THE RING - Lady Gaga Gets Engaged! How Big is the Diamond?

Lady Gaga confirmed her engagement to long to boyfriend Taylor Kinney today via Instagram, sharing a picture of her huge, heart shaped diamond engagement ring. "He gave me his heart on Valentine's Day, and I said YES!" reveals the caption accompanying the photo. 

The You and I, singer is set to marry actor Taylor Kinney after he proposed on Valentine’s Day, they celebrated at Gaga’s family's restaurant, Joanne Trattoria, on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. A visibly exuberant Gaga was seen Monday, February 16th in a striking purple fur coat & sunglasses, but she was not ready to share the news as she concealed her ring with her other hand and under that fur coat. But now the important stuff. The ring!!!

“This is a platinum and heart shape diamond engagement ring. Looks to be about 8 carats and very fine quality. The setting is simple with a few round diamonds down the side. If the stone is an E color and VS1, it would run close to $500,000. It’s a really special stone, it’s extremely difficult to get large heart shapes. It’s very unique for a ring,” expert celebrity jeweler, Shari Fabrikant of Robert Fabrikant Inc. in NYC, told Hollywood Life in a statement.

You may recall the pop icon first met fiancé on the 2011 set of her “You & I” music video. Shot in Nebraska where Lady Gaga wore her mother’s wedding dress in scenes & Taylor starred as her hunky love interest. They have been together ever since, minus a brief split in May 2012. View the video below.

Lady Gaga or Taylor Kinney have not shared specifics as to the ring's origins, costs or nature.
