IT’S OFFICIAL. Marc Anthony popped the question to Miss Universe finalist Nadia Ferreira with a 10-carat diamond ring during her 23rd birthday celebration at Disney World in Orlando.

The Paraguayan model revealed the ring in an Instagram Story on Thursday. In the photo, Anthony is caressing his fianceé’s hand and the three-stone ring can be seen peeking out between his ring finger and middle finger. She tagged Anthony in a caption that simply read, “Engagement Party!!!” with the three exclamation points followed by a diamond-ring emoji.

The actual ring, which is reportedly worth $500,000, features an emerald-cut center stone flanked by smaller tapered baguettes. The clean, symmetrical, three-stone motif is steeped in symbolism, as it represents the model’s past, present and future.

Made popular during the 1920’s Art Deco movement, the emerald cut continues to convey an understated, regal elegance. The stepped facets allow the admirer to see clearly into the stone, revealing its perfection.

Interestingly, the ring shares the design Anthony chose for ex-wife Jennifer Lopez in 2004. That ring was reportedly designed by Harry Winston, featured a blue diamond center stone and was valued at $4 million. Lopez is currently engaged (for the second time) to Ben Affleck.

Anthony, 53, met Ferreira earlier this year and made their relationship Instagram-official with romantic vacation posts in March. Ferreira earned the title of Miss Universe Paraguay 2021 and and went on to become the 1st Runner-Up at the Miss Universe pageant in Israel in December of 2021.

Ferreira has been overwhelmed by the outpouring of positive feedback since she announced the engagement. In an Instagram snap showing the couple posing in front of Cinderella’s Castle, she wrote, “I am speechless seeing all your messages of so much love and good wishes, thank you very much. What a Birthday! #23.”

The caption, which was written in her native Spanish and translated above, included three fun emojis: a happy face emoji wearing a party hat and blowing a party horn, a birthday cake and a shower of gold sparkles.

The tattooed black rectangle at the base of Anthony’s left ring finger masks what used to be Lopez’s initials. He covered up the tat after their separation in 2011. Anthony and Lopez are the parents of 14-year-old twins Max and Emme.

Thinking of Liquidating? Wilkerson’s Got You Covered

Bil Holehan, the manager of Julianna’s Fine Jewelry in Corte Madera, Calif., decided to go on to the next chapter of his life when the store’s owner and namesake told him she was set to retire. Before they left, Holehan says they decided to liquidate some of the store’s aging inventory. They chose Wilkerson for the sale. Why? “Friends had done their sales with Wilkerson and they were very satisfied,” says Holehan. He’d enthusiastically recommend Wilkerson to anyone looking to stage a liquidation or going-out-of-business sale. “There were no surprises,” he says. “They were very professional in their assessment of our store, what we could expect from the sale and they were very detailed in their projections. They were pretty much on the money.”
