Did Simon propose to Porsha Williams with the same ring he previously gave his estranged wife? This is something fans theorized after seeing how similar the engagement rings looked like in pictures.
That being said, Porsha was quick to address the rumors, setting the record straight.
As if their engagement only a month into their relationship and while Simon Guobadia is still technically married to Porsha’s ex-friend Falynn were not enough controversies, now, the internet is convinced the man repurposed the same engagement ring!
As you might have seen, the RHOA star showed off her new rock, a massive emerald cut diamond but it did not take long at all for fans to point out that it looks suspiciously similar to the one Simon previously gave his wife.
Could it be the same ring? Porsha said, ‘That’s a lie,’ on Twitter after seeing the rumors going around.
This comes not too long ago after Porsha confirmed their speedy engagement and defended their decision from those who think she might have ruined Simon’s previous marriage.
In a post on her IG, she argued that ‘I get the optics, but Simon filed for divorce in January. I had nothing to do with that divorce filing. That is between the two of them. Falynn and I aren’t friends and Simon’s divorce’s been settled. Our relationship’s a positive, loving step forward in everyone’s lives.’
She also acknowledged that they may be moving quite fast but that they are ‘crazy in love’ and ‘He makes me happy and to me, that’s what matters most.’
Going back to the ring, Mike Fried, CEO of The Diamond Pro, told HollywoodLife all about the expensive piece of jewelry.
Apparently, ‘Porsha’s diamond ring appears to be 15 carats. Finding an emerald cut diamond of this size and this quality is rare, making the ring’s approximate value at $1 million. With the pave band and 4-prong setting, her ring’s a true statement piece and is a nod to the couple’s future together.’
