EXCLUSIVE: Snooki’s $55,000 Engagement Ring

Posted on March 7th, 2012 at 12:13 pm


On Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's birthday last November, she and Jionni LaValle walked into B&B Jewelers in Wayne, New Jersey to pick up some jewelry that her father bought her.

While she was there, she tried on some wedding rings, owner Ben Bekdas tells RumorFix exclusively. "She put on a couple of rings -- she was giving him some hints."

Jionni came back later and asked the jeweler to blend three ring styles, creating  a unique five carat sparkler worth $55,000. The center carat is 3.2 carats and there are smaller diamonds around the band.

Jionni proposed to Snooki on Valentine's Day.

Ben, who has designed jewelry for Real Housewives of New Jersey's Teresa Giudice, talk show host Wendy Williams and rapper Missy Elliot, says that Jionni "Is a true gentlemen." And, contrary to the character she plays on Jersey Shore, Ben says, "Both Nicole and Jionni are very well spoken."

      I’m sure Snooki paid for the ring. Where would her short bf get the money from?

        why would she pay for her own ring? and nobody knows what Jionni does for a living her could be making BANK!

          Actually he is either a middle school or high school coach of some sort and wanting to go to school to be a gym teacher. Either she paid for it through a shared fund with him or he got it from her dad.
