Nick Jonas Paid A Stunning Amount For Priyanka Chopra's Engagement Ring

Relationships in Hollywood can go from 0 to 100 in what feels like the blink of an eye. Such was the case with Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra, who famously got engaged after just two months of dating, per Glamour. (Apparently, it all started with a Twitter DM, so it seems love is still alive and well in the digital age!) In a 2018 interview with Vogue, Jonas recalled that he slid into the "Quantico" star's DMs in 2016 with a message that read, "I'm hearing from a few mutual friends that we should meet." Per the outlet, Chopra replied, "My team can read this. Why don't you just text me?" Though the two engaged in some light flirtation over text, they didn't meet in person until the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar party, according to Brides. They finally made their relationship official in 2018 and topped things off with a wedding by the end of that year.

Fast forward a few years later, and Chopra and Jonas seem happier than ever. Though the couple spend time apart due to their busy work schedules, Chopra told People that Jonas promised to "always be in [her] corner." She added, "It became the greatest thing I feel about this partnership." In January, the pair reached another milestone in their relationship after welcoming a baby via surrogate! In honor of their bundle of joy, let's take a walk down memory lane to revisit how Jonas first popped the question to his wife.

Priyanka Chopra's engagement ring cost a small fortune

In 2018, Priyanka Chopra took to Instagram to debut her engagement ring from husband-to-be Nick Jonas — and as everyone imagined, it was quite the bling. "Priyanka's ring is a high quality cushion cut weighing around 4 carats," the President of WP Diamonds, Andrew Brown, told E! News at the time. "It looks to be somewhere around a G color, VS1 clarity, which, from Tiffany & Co., would have a value of around $200,000." Since money isn't exactly a stumbling block for Jonas, the former boy bander made things extra special with a one-of-a-kind proposal. According to E! News, he pulled a "Sweet Home Alabama" and shut down an entire Tiffany & Co. store "to ensure the utmost privacy."

Following the über romantic proposal, the couple celebrated their engagement with Nick's older brother Joe Jonas, and his then-fiancee Sophie Turner. "Everyone is happy," a source shared with the outlet. "They are definitely a great match." However, Chopra and Nick took their time before sharing news of their engagement with the world. Per Hello!, Chopra tried her best to hide her ring from the paparazzi before taking to Instagram with her big news. "Taken ... with all my heart and soul," she captioned a loved-up snap of the couple in 2018. Nick shared the same image to his own Instagram, writing, "Future Mrs. Jonas. My heart. My love."

How did Priyanka Chopra react to Nick Jonas' proposal?

Though Priyanka Chopra sporadically kept in touch with Nick Jonas before they started dating, she told Elite Daily that she was "taking a hiatus from guys" around the same time they connected romantically. Still, "there's always been something about Nick, which is why we always ended up staying in touch, no matter where we were," she shared. It's safe to say that Jonas has always been a man who knew what he wanted, especially if the speed of his proposal was any indication! "I didn't expect the proposal at that point ... It was two months!" Chopra told Elle UK in March 2021. "I thought it would happen, but it was still a complete shock. I relinquished control, and I just went with it."

For Jonas, there may have been some nerves associated with the moment he got down on one knee. Immediately afterwards, Chopra was quiet. "No joke — she took about 45 seconds. Forty-five seconds of silence," Jonas told Vogue of the high-octane moment. "I'm going to put this ring on your finger now unless you have any objections," he told her. Though the quick timing of their courtship and subsequent engagement may have seemed rushed to the general public, Chopra and Jonas proved they clearly knew each other best, and knew what was right for them.
