‘From Pia Miller’s celebratory Instagram post, her ring looks like a 10 carat to 12 carat solitaire oval diamond, set in a platinum band, which would be priced at between US$800,000 (AU$1.10million) to US$1.4million (AU$1.9million),’ Mr Kormind said.

Discussing the shape of Pia’s eye-popping rock, Mr Kormind said: ‘The oval is a historic diamond cut, originally invented hundreds of years ago, but its more modern iteration was created in the 1950s and is a very classic cut which is currently enjoying enormous popularity.’

‘One of the the best known engagement rings with an oval centre stone is Princess Diana’s engagement ring with its central oval sapphire surrounded by diamonds, worn today by the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.’  

Pia announced her engagement to Patrick on Saturday by uploading a photo of the couple clinking wine glasses on Patrick’s Malibu balcony.     

With the coronavirus pandemic prompting international border closures, Pia had been living in Sydney while Patrick is based in Los Angeles.

However, they reunited five days ago in California, according to Pia’s Instagram.

The couple last reunited in September, when Patrick visited Pia at her new home in Sydney’s Bondi. 

Meanwhile, Australian A-listers have taken to social media to congratulate Pia and Patrick on their engagement.

Pia was first linked to the Hollywood power agent in August last year, following her split with her former fiancé, Tyson Mullane, 32.

In April last year, The Daily Telegraph reported that Pia and Tyson had ‘amicably’ ended their 18-month engagement, with Tyson moving out of their Sydney home.

Pia was previously married to former Australian rules football player Brad Miller between 2007 and 2015, and has since continued to use his last name.  

Meanwhile, Pia and Patrick made their public debut at a Halloween party in Los Angeles in October that year, amid reports they’d started dating back in May.

She finally made their relationship ‘Instagram Official’ last Christmas Eve, sharing a loved-up photo with Patrick outside of the Louvre in Paris, and captioning it ‘P²’.

Speaking to Now To Love in March, Pia said she went ‘back and forth between Los Angeles and Australia’ prior to the outbreak of the killer virus. 

Preferring to not speak in great detail about her private life, Pia, hinted at FaceTime being the secret to keeping the spark alive.

‘[I have] friends and family that live all over the world… let’s just say FaceTime has really gotten a run for its money recently!’ she revealed coyly.   

Pia and Patrick’s romance follows the breakdown of Patrick’s 14-year marriage to Lauren Sanchez, who is now reportedly engaged to Amazon boss Jeff Bezos.    

Patrick was the one who introduced Lauren to Jeff in 2016, and she dumped him for the $186.5billion tech CEO in May 2019.

At the time, the New York Post reported that Lauren and Patrick were still married, but separated. 

The bombshell January 2019 National Enquirer report of Jeff and Lauren’s relationship went public just hours after his separation from MacKenzie Bezos was announced. 

Patrick and Lauren finalised their divorce in October 2019, and speculations that she had become engaged to Bezos began in February 2020. 

The reported engagement was reported amid a contentious defamation battle between Jeff and Lauren’s brother, Michael Sanchez.

Michael accused Jeff and his security consultant, Gavin de Becker, of defaming him by falsely telling journalists that he was responsible for leaking nude photos of the Amazon founder to the National Enquirer.  

In a court filing, Lauren was referred to as Jeff’s ‘current fiancée.’ 

Patrick shares 13-year-old son Evan and 11-year-old daughter Eleanor Patricia with ex-wife Lauren.     

Pia is also a proud mother to son Isaiah, 17, who she shares with ex-husband Brad Miller, and Lennox, 13, who she shares with another former partner.
