Bethenny Frankel appears to have a new piece of jewelry

In March 2021, Bethenny Frankel was photographed hanging out on a beach in Florida, and a seemingly new piece of jewelry was spotted in the photos that were posted by Page Six. Bethenny was wearing a black, one-piece swimsuit that featured two tigers and some greenery. She paired the look with a large hat and some sunglasses. The former Real Housewives of New York star also had on a good deal of jewelry for her beach day. She wore a few layered necklaces, bracelets, and a watch, all of which appeared to be gold metal. 

However, it wasn't the necklaces or the watch that had people wondering if Bethenny is engaged. As Page Six highlighted, she was seen wearing a "massive ring" on that finger. The ring appeared to be an elongated emerald cut center stone that was flaunted by two smaller side stones. And while, as of this writing, Bethenny hasn't confirmed or denied the engagement rumors, it certainly looks like she might have some news to share!
