This russian oligarch proposed to his fiancé with a 70-carat diamond ring
Posted August 23
Nothing says “I want to spend forever with you” quite like a 70-carat diamond. And we imagine a gift of this magnitude would be an offer most people couldn’t refuse! So, when Russian oligarch Aleksey Shapovalov proposed to model Ksenia Tsaritsina with this massive rock, she indeed said yes.
The couple have already been together for five years and have two children together, but now they’ve made their matrimony official-and they did it with a seriously lavish ceremony. The ring Shapovalov gave his bride is said to be worth $10.5 million, so as you can imagine, the couple spared no expense on their wedding day, either.
Tsaritsina wore not one, but two, wedding gowns. Each one was absolutely stunning. For the ceremony, she donned a strapless gown that was covered in beading and floral appliqué.
Here’s a shot of the beautiful bride in her first gown:

It had a ball gown skirt and a long train.

She changed out of that extravagant gown and into one that was more suitable for dancing at the reception. She paired the lace gown with a lace veil, and the combo was absolutely gorgeous.
The groom had wardrobe changes, too. He wore a black tuxedo for the ceremony and a white one for the reception. Here’s a snap shared by one of their wedding guests, Instagram user mrsworld.
The reception was filled with chandeliers, an eight-tier wedding cake and even had special performances by the couple’s favorite rock band, Leningrad.
You can live vicariously through the photos of the wedding that were posted to social media, and trust us-they’re unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
All in all, the evening appears to be filled with love displayed by the couple and their friends and family and plenty of opulence.
The bride couldn’t be more grateful for her big day, either.
“It was unbelievable,” Tsaritsina reportedly said of the epic celebration. “Thank you to our friends for sharing this wonderful day with us.”
When the bride first received her 70-carat ring, she told Russia’s Cosmopolitan magazine, “My husband is never too stingy to buy me presents,” and he made that clear on their wedding day, too.
