Kim Kardashian isn't the only A-lister with a 15-carat diamond engagement ring! The reality star's BFF Ciara has one, too, courtesy of rapper/producer Future. E! News has the exclusive first look at the singer's bling, which she received this weekend while celebrating her 28th birthday in New York City.
"The ring, which doubled as a special birthday gift, is a beautiful 15-carat emerald cut diamond designed by Avianne & Co," Ciara's rep says.
This will be the first marriage for both Ciara and Future, who began dating a year ago. The couple confirmed their courtship in January, and by springtime, the musicians got each other's initials tattooed on their ring fingers.
During an August appearance on Kris Jenner's eponymous talk show, Ciara explained how she balanced romance with her career. "You have to make time, because that's where you find your sanity. If you just commit to work every day, every day, all day, you get so lost that you can lose yourself," she explained. "Love is really important to me."
That same month, Future told Hot 97 radio host Angie Martinez that he was destined to marry Ciara. "I don't get into nothing to get out. We haven't set a date. This is The One," the 29-year-old said. "I said it before, I said it seven years ago, so for it to come around and happen, it was just meant to be."
Future, who is currently on tour with Drake, will release his sophomore album on Nov. 26. Ciara, meanwhile, just released her latest single, "Overdose."
