Kim Kardashian isn’t the only one with a huge engagement ring weighing down her left hand. Ciara is now a member of the 15-carat club.

Rapper-producer Future proposed to the singer over the weekend with one impressive custom rock that he helped design with the jewelers of Avianne & Co. The sparkler, officially named “Past Present and Future Emerald Cut Diamond Ring,” features 15 carats of emerald diamonds on an eternity style band with … you guessed it … more diamonds all the way around! The cost? Just over half a million, according to the jewelry retailer.

“The ring is a very intricate design which took longer to actually design than it did to produce,” a rep for Avianne & Co. tells PEOPLE. “We went through several molds and concept models before landing on the proper design, which allowed for maximum shine and stability in the diamonds. This vision of blending ring styles together allowed for a very unique ring.”

Also like Kardashian, Ciara’s engagement was a birthday surprise!

“Today Has 2 Be Like One Of The Sweetest Days Of My Life! #TheBestBirthdayEver,” Ciara Tweeted Sunday. “If I’m Dreaming I Don’t Want To Wake Up..Aaaaaahhh!!!:)”

Now we can’t wait to see her dress. What do you think of Ciara’s new bling? Do you like the unique design? Share your thoughts in the comments.

I personally don’t like the emerald cut, but I think it was very sweet that Future went to such lengths to create the ring for her. I wish them health, happiness, and everlasting love.

MSS on

Looks like the ring Kris H gave to KIM k

Debbie on

Oh that’s going to hurt with those prongs and stones between her fingers…other than that it’s gorgeous!!

xox on

Looks like Angelina’s

Marie on

Hope he invested and continues to invest well and not regret spending half a million on a ring. Well if times get hard, they can always sell the ring. IJS.Does it take all that to get married? Congrats anyway!

Foxtrotter on

Who gets the outrageously expensive ring in the divorce settlement?

Eat your heart out Kim, Ciara has a BEAUTIFUL ring compared to yours!

Suzanne on

Sensational! That ring is gorgeous! I have a forever ring and it doesn’t hurt between the fingers or under the fingers. That’s just jealousy talking!

Betty on

Gorgeous ring but it looks like it TOTALS 15 carats. I wouldn’t be shocked if this was Kim’s diamond that was bought by a secret buyer…

ProudAmericanWoman on

This kind of purchase is why “stars” like her are often broke a decade later. She should ask Toni Braxton and all the others for some financial “coulda, woulda, shoulda” advice. This ring will go under the hammer at a tax auction one day along with a bunch of other tacky merchandise..

guest on

It kind of reminds me of those 25¢ gumball machine rings that stretch with rubber bands. It also reminds me of Angelina Jolie’s ring.

Amy on

Wow… Do these people not realize how gauche it is to wear a ring with that many carats???

Amaryllis on

This ring looks like it has a center stone of 6 carats, side stones of 1.5 and the rest divided among the small stones on the band. So that doesn’t make it a 15 carat solitaire like Kim Kardashiian or Beyonce Knowles (which I think is bigger), and a HUGE difference in the cost. I’m sure this ring cost $500K or more though.

launchingpad on

my engagement ring is a bit over 4 carats (handed down heirloom) and it’s so big I can hardly stand it. i can’t imagine as Debbie posted, wearing the prongs and stones all around her finger.

Amaryllis on

@Betty. Kim’s ring from Kris Humprhies was 20 carats with a 16 carat center stone, however the stone wasn’t of the color and quality of the stone she has now. I don’t understand gigantic diamond rings, but the one above looks very uncomfortable to wear.

Allison on

It looks Just Like the ring Brad Pitt gave Angelina Jolie!

Carolyn on

These huge rings are so tacky and pretentious. Let’s see how long the marriages last.

Tani on

Flashy and trashy

Aeol on

Kimmy is going to be soooo mad

Queen C on

Why must People shove Kim Kartrashian into everyone’s story. This isn’t about Kim. This is Ciara’s big moment. Kim had hers several times over. Anywhoo…congrats to the happy couple, although neither Ciara nor Fabulous can afford such a pricey gem. They need to stay in their lane and stop trying to keep up with people wit real money.

Regal on

Kim and Kanye win the 15 carat competition.. Kim’s ring is a D-quality… truly flawless. This ring was 500k… Kim’s 8-10m

chicagomum on

wow, beautiful ring…wishing them both all the best in life.

Dezz on

Has anyone seen Angelina Jolies ring? Now that is one classy ring.

Amaryllis on

Angelina Jolie’s ring has bad color stones. They look almost grey. Probably I color or worse.

Chicy on

Kim’s ring is flawless. Ciara’s ring doesn’t compare.

menotyou on

How sad that these celebrities are so hung up on all this narcissistic excess. And here People is promoting all the civil wars, rapes and child slavery that went into mining this blood diamond.

Amy Adams is the only celeb I’ve seen so far with a tasteful and small engagement ring.

violet on

WOW!!!! Gorgeous ring!! Kimye and Beyonce’s rings are ugly. They both have just one stone. Ciara girl…You win hands down!!

D on

That has to be one of the most beautiful, incredible engagement rings I have ever seen. WOW!!

anaccidentalvegetarian on

The problem with getting engaged on her birthday is that, by law, even if they don’t get married (nevermind divorced) she doesn’t have to return the ring – it’s a birthday present!

sandy woodin on

I LOVE this ring, dont like Kim’s, but this design is outstanding!

Nancy on

Interesting how Kim K. and Ciara are friends, share a birthday month, have a rapper for a boyfriend and just got a 15-carat engagement ring? Hmmm . . . Anyone else find it “coincidental”? LOL. Not me.

Becky on

Why would Ciara marry a man with 4 kids with 3 different woman? Gross!!
