Karlie Kloss’ engagement ring makes a first appearance on social media as she takes to Instagram to thanks family, friends and fans for their well wishes.
The model confirmed her engagement to investor Joshua Kushner on Instagram yesterday, writing, “I love you more than I have words to express. Josh, you’re my best friend and my soulmate. I can’t wait for forever together. Yes a million times over.” Kushner also posted his own announcement on Instagram, posting a photo of Kloss and captioning it, “fiance” with a heart emoji. According to People, “He proposed a few weeks ago during a romantic weekend together in upstate New York. They’re both overjoyed and happily celebrating. Their hearts are full, and they’re excited to build their future together.”
The model took to social media to show off her engagement ring as she thanked fans for their support and congratulatory messages. She posted a picture of herself sporting the ring on Twitter, writing, “Thank you ALL for your sweet wishes! So happy to share this news with you, I am feeling like the happiest girl in the world. Thank you for your love and support, it truly means the world to me.”
She also posted an elaborate Instagram story thanking fans for their support and posting about her family and friends’ reactions. She posted a video of herself in a makeup chair in Beijing, writing, “My phone is blowing up with the sweetest messages from loved ones. This poor make up artist is gonna kill me.” In the video, she held up her ring for fans to see as she made an excited face at the camera.
Experts from MONEY predicted that the ring, which has smaller diamonds along the band and a center cushion weighing at least seven carats, costs anywhere from $200,000 and $500,000.
Kloss continued the Instagram story by sharing the reactions of her mother, grandma, sisters and friends including Serena Williams and Princess Beatrice. Taylor Swift, one of Kloss’ closest friends from a couple of years ago, was noticeably absent from the congratulatory montage.
