Tehran (KNA) - MELANIA TRUMP, the wife of Donald Trump, is one of the richest women in the world thanks to her husband. However, there is now some confusion over how much the 47-year-old from Slovenia’s engagement ring cost.
Melania Trump’s engagement ring was given to her by the 71-year-old billionaire when he asked the 47-year-old to marry him in April 2004.
Donald Trump proposed at the Costume Institute Gala in New York with an enormous diamond ring.
The piece was reported to have cost a whopping £1,085,895 ($1.5m) at the time.
Trump claimed to have bought the diamond from Graff for half price, stating: "Only a fool would say, 'No thank you, I want to pay a million dollars more for a diamond.”
The diamond is said to be a D-flawless diamond, which are rare and certified under microscopic conditions to have no flaws.
However, there now appears to be some confusion about how much Trump paid for the ring.
The chairman of Graff, Laurence Graff, has said Donald was given “no favours”.
If Trump’s claims were true, this would value the rock at $3m, or £2.3m.
