More details have emerged about Carrie Underwood’s gorgeous engagement ring. The sizeable center stone, first spotted when Underwood flashed her ring while cheering on fiancé Mike Fisher and the rest of his Ottawa Senators teammates at their Monday night game, is actually a flawless yellow diamond, designed for her by jeweler Johnathon Arndt, who said in a release, “This ring is a symbol of love from Mike Fisher to Carrie Underwood,” as he wished the couple congratulations. This isn’t the first time the American Idol alum has worn Arndt’s baubles: back in 2007 at the Country Music Awards, the 26 year-old performed her hit “So Small” in a diaphanous canary yellow chiffon gown bedecked with the jeweler’s twin imperial jadeite and diamond butterfly pins worth a staggering six million dollars!

@krystin: I agree…pretty ring but GOOOOO SABRESSSSSSS!!!

Sam on

Let’s hope her down home roots have taught her the ring is not what makes a marriage.

Best wishes to them as they begin a new life together.

I am so happy for Carrie and Mike. She deserves it. They make such a great couple. Much happiness and God Bless you both!! Love the ring too! :)

ru on

people are losing their homes and they’re flashing big rings etc. !!

JC on

OMG…Could People mag be more shallow…Carrie Underwood’s ring more important than real news? It bumped David and Sean Goldman’s story from top news???

cheryl on

good for her, congrats…GO SABRES

Danielle on

congrats to them! it is great so whens the wedding and when will we be seeing little singing hockey players running around hollywood??

Erica Noyes on

I’m so happy for Carrie and I wish them the best. And I have no issue with discussing how pretty her ring is because I’m on and celebrity news is what this site is for. I’ll go to another site when I want to read about world hunger or international policy issues. Again, congrats to the lovely couple!

Jess on

Congrats to the happy couple. I couldn’t agree more with the last comment. Definately don’t come here to read about all the problems in the world. We come here to get away with all of that stuff.

Tiff on

Congratulations to Carrie. What a gorgeous ring!

Shari on

I love Carrie and Mike is HOT. GO CAPS!!!!



Karen on

I am always thinking that even if I could afford ( or my fiance for that matter) a ring that expensive; I would be afraid to wear it. It is beautiful, don’t get me wrong, but I would be worried I would lose it or robbed or something. But I wish them all the happiness in the future as husband and wife.

tabitha on

beautiful ringg ! && i agree with erica, this is! its what the sites for people go be crabby somewhere else ! && LETS GO BUFFALO =]

Jennifer Arthur on

Best of luck to them both. Now, when are they going to start a family? I’d love to see Carrie Underwood with a baby bump… AWW

wendy on

I think she seem like a bit of a DIVA. She should remember that if it weren’t for american idol she would be working at the mall.

soSweet on

Im so happy for her. She’s a gem, congrats to the both of them!

LMS on

Does anyone have a close up or more CLEAR version of what the ring looks like???

Madge on

She is such a b*tch. And no, I am not jealous – I have a 3 carat princess cut of my own.

Brad on

I find it absolutely ridiculous that people wish “celebrities” all the best and congratulations on this page – like they will actually care or read it.

This proves how dependent on celebrity we as a nation are.

avery on

I agree with JC-how shallow flashing a ring like that? Than again, that’s Carrie style–she needs to be centre of attention always even when inappropriate like the Country Music Awards when she tried to upstage Taylor Swift at the end of the show saying and How were we -we were Awesome! in reference to her hosting. That is not classy at all. Take a look at her at the Senators game studying her ring–she doesn’t look too happy-maybe the ring is not big enough for her big ego. Poor Mikey!

rinijg on

Love Carrie. Glad she is happy.


Mike may have been daydreaming when the Pens beat them 8-2 last night.

Mary on

JC, People Magazine put Carrie’s story on the StyleWatch page, not the news page so this story did not bump Sean Goldman’s reunion with his father.

ru, I know Carrie and Mike are concerned about those folks who’ve lost a lot during the recession. It isn’t their fault. And, by the way, I don’t think she was “flashing” her ring. She was speaking to another woman seated next to her during the game and I will tell you we “Okies” talk with our hands. A photographer just happened to zoom in on that moment.

Heather on

Since nobody is representing the real time here… Go Sens!!!!!! And congrats mike and carrie. She knows how to pick ’em.

Amanda on

That’s great. How much did that ring cost? I would be more excited to see that they’d donated that amount of money to a charity of some sort. St. Jude’s perhaps.

kaity on

i love carrie!!!
But i must say i LOVE the pens

Lets Go Pens!!

lauren on

lets go pens!

Kris on

Not to take away from Carrie’s joy, but running a story on the size of her engagement ring on Christmas Eve when some families, specifically children, are without gifts, food, love, etc. is, in my opinion, inappropriate and poor timing.

Peg S. on

I’d be scared to wear that ring out in public for fear of being robbed. Good God………you could land a plane on that diamond!

Teresa on

so beautiful!! (the ring and carrie :) )
congratulations to carrie and mike! they are such a great couple and they deserve each other. and the ring is gorgeous.
and sorry, but im a devils fan!!!!! lol
happy holidays! :)

Rebekah on

Someone mentioned that Carrie is flashing her big ring when people are losing their homes. Well, even when the economy isn’t so sucky, people will always be losing their homes, their jobs, etc. I think we need to focus on the happy, positive moments and things in life–including beautiful engagement rings and being in love. Congrats to Carrie.

Tarik on

Sometimes I wonder if its even godly to own something like that…

Megan on

Congrats. Very big….. love it. but i hate the senators. Penguins beat them 8-2 yesterday! Go Pens. …….. congrats Carrie

fatima on of luck to you GO SENATORS GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tiffany H. on

Even though I voted for Bo Bice and Carrie is from Oklahoma like me—I am still happy to see her so happy.Yeah I know the ring is not a big deal and I am just happy for her and Mike.I also enjoyed her show on Fox the other night–she is kinda funny actually.

lola on

congrats Carrie and Mike…such a cute couple!!

Megan on

What a gorgeous ring congratulations to Mike and Carrie, Carrie you are one of my favorite artists not because you sing, but because you are a Christian and you aren’t afraid to say that in any of our songs

Catalina on

Gorgeous ring. Lucky woman.

SusiQ on

All these posts about “people losing their homes and Carrie flashing her ring” are pathetic. When you were a child did your mother ever tell you “clean up your plate, think of all the starving children in China (or whereever)”? Like if I ate my food those children would be less hungry or if Carrie didn’t have a humongous ring people would stop losing their homes? One has NOTHING to do with the other.

cammie on

hey carrie congrats on your engagement i hope it last along time

I agree with SuzieQ and Mary Roberts. We live in a free country and if her fiance wants to give her a huge ring, good for him! And if we want to help others, we each can give out of our own resources.

LOL, the first reaction I had to this news was, “She looks like Sarah Jessica Parker’s character Carrie Bradshaw.”

Seriously, scroll up and look at her photo.


“Big and Sparkly”

Congrats to anyone who can find true love in the world of entertainment.
It’s a jungle.
Just ask Charlie Sheen.

hey carrie ring is really pretty

Ring Mens on

Wow, that is a huge ring.

AussieGirl on

It is nice to see a happy story about a true role model – not some flash-in-the-pan celebutant. We should see more stories about young men and women like her so our youth know that there is more to life than being famous for nothing.

cajr on

She can do a LOT better than that neanderthal goon! Wake up Carrie, you are WAY too hot to settle for him!!

Porchia on

So that means she will be Carrie Fisher when she gets married? What will Princess Leia think?

Christine Blake on

People may be losing their homes, but it is not the fault of Carrie or Mike. Congratulations kids!! Hope you have a great life together. You both have earned it. What's Right Now : Carrie Underwood Flashes Her Ring, Barbie Goes Gaga on
