Simone Biles Gets Dazzler of an Oval Diamond Ring From NFL Player Jonathan Owens

It’s a 3-carat oval diamond with F color and VVS2 clarity.

WHAT DOES seven-time Olympic medalist Simon Biles have in common with Blake Lively, Hailey Bieber and Kourtney Kardashian? A stunning oval diamond engagement ring. If three makes a trend, then does a fourth make it a super trend? I just made that up. But ovals have been trending for quite some time. Kardashian received her oval in October 2021 and we began seeing a large number of independent designers working with this shape more frequently. It is sure to be on the radar of brides-to-be as well as jewelers, if it isn’t already.

Biles’s boyfriend, NFL player Jonathan Owens, popped the question on Valentine’s Day. And this journalist is just gushy enough to find that extremely sentimental — it’s a memory that will endure as one of the most significant days the couple will spend together.

Like most celebrities, Biles posted the ring on Instagram and shared moments of the proposal, such as Owens down on one knee. Unlike many celebrity rings, we immediately knew who designed it — Zo Frost, who also posted the ring on his Instagram. The jeweler told Page Six, “Jonathan has been a client and friend for a few years and I had the pleasure of helping him to create this very special ring.”

“He and I started the process together a few months ago to select the perfect diamond for Simone that was handpicked by Jonathan,” Frost continued. “He wanted to add a special touch to the ring by adding a halo around the oval diamond.”

The ring is a beauty — a 3-carat oval diamond with F color and VVS2 clarity! Now that’s an engagement ring I wouldn’t have to think twice about. What makes it even more special and gives it more of a backstory is that the couple and the jeweler are based in and/or grew up in Houston.

When Biles showed the oval solitaire ring on her Instagram, she captioned the photos with, “THE EASIEST YES. I can’t wait to spend forever & ever with you, you’re everything I dreamed of and more! let’s get married FIANCÉ 💍🥺🥲🤎.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

Wilkerson: “They Feel Like Family”

Newton’s Jewelers in Fort Smith, Ark., was a true institution. But after being at the helm for most of his life, owner (and descendent of the original founder) Kelly Newton decided it was time to retire. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale. “I’ve known the owners of Wilkerson for a long, long time. I felt at home with them,” he says. The final retirement sale was just a “blast” and the Wilkerson sales team made it so very simple and straightforward, says Newton. Would he recommend Wilkerson to others? Absolutely. “They’ve done incredible work,” says Newton. “They feel like family.”
