Christine Quinn offers million-dollar houses with a million-dollar ring on her finger.
The “Selling Sunset” star created her 20-carat engagement ring from Christian Richard with the aid of her long time jewelry expert Monika Kosa over the procedure of a couple of months, and no information was ignored.
Kosa informed Page Six Style over e-mail that rings of Quinn’s quality retail for over $1 million.
“From the get-go, I knew it’s wasn’t going to be a simple solitaire type of ring. Oh please!” she stated. “I knew that I had to bring out the best stones and the best workmanship.”
Continued the jewelry expert, “Christine had a vision of what the ring should look like. I love working with clients who know exactly what they want and challenge me. With Christine’s ring, we built unique U-shape suspension prongs to hold the enormous amount of diamonds in the setting alone. Although we started with a ‘no less than 10-carat, internal flawless oval rock’ [rule] — Christine’s instructions — by the time we finished setting it and building the spectacular band, we were a little over 20 carats.”
The duo produced the ring from scratch, utilizing pictures, videos and makings for motivation.
“I love that between her shooting and traveling schedule, Christine always found time for concise and on-point feedback during the entire design process,” Kosa stated. “We did it all through Whatsapp because I’m on the East Coast, and Christine is mostly on the West Coast or jetting around.”
Quinn enjoyed her ring a lot that she later on delegated Kosa to create her 2 wedding event bands and her well-known heart-shaped diamond pendant, which she uses regularly on “Selling Sunset.”
“One wedding band is simple for daily wear, and one ginormous oval-shaped eternity band to match her engagement ring,” Kosa stated. “It took several months to collect 12 perfectly matching oval-cut, D color, VVS clarity diamonds. We also set the band in a delicate U-shape setting, encrusted with pavé diamonds totaling a little over 13 carats.”
Concluded the jewelry expert, “It’s a stunning and delicate setting. I was worried about the setting because stones could easily fall out, but Christine wanted the most beautiful and best design. Period.”
