The price of Heather El Moussa’s engagement ring
The eight-carat, emerald ring worn by Heather after their engagement was specially made. As eight carats are extremely rare and valuable, it’s no secret that the piece of jewellery was worth a lot!
You can usually expect to pay between $12,500 to $40,000 per carat for a ring of this size. That’s on top of the price Tarek paid to have it shipped all the way from Europe to the US.
Tarek put the ring on Heather’s finger after popping the question on Catalina Island. It was truly a dream proposal, as he guided Heather down a beach path lined with flower petals and flickering candles.
Although the exact price of the ring is not publicly disclosed, the cost is likely to have been in the thousands.

Heather has a testimonial on the firm’s website, which states:
Our good friend Benny helped Tarek in the hunt for the perfect stone. He chose an 8 carat (because 8 is a lucky number) & Emerald cut is my favorite!
She even got a new band upgrade on the ring in February – designed with her now-husband Tarek – and told Instagram followers that she’s been thinking about her dream ring for years.
Heather said: “I never planned my ‘dream wedding’ but I saved rings I loved for the past 10 years. Gold with Emerald cut was always my dream ring.“
