Miss USA Nia Sanchez is Engaged

Yes we didn’t know who she was either but we saw her engagement ring so be became interested – you’ll see why below.

engagement ring for miss usa nia sanchezNia won the prestigious title Miss USA back in June and is now engaged to actor Daniel Booko. US website Rumor Fix shared all the details relating to the engagement.  This relationship is relatively new – the couple met for the first time 18 months ago at an engagement party of a mutual friend. They met 3 months later at church (yes church) where Daniel went over to Nia and started chatting. Its just goes to show, if you want something in life you have to take it. Having said that, Daniel being an actor and looking like a model probably helped a bit in the conversation lasting more than a few seconds! 14 months later and the couple are now engaged.

I know what your thinking – what sort of ring does Miss USA have? Well, the short answer is a very very pretty one. It is set in platinum and set with a double halo scallop setting and cushion centre. The unique thing with this ring is that Daniel put 3 stones inside the ring to represent the American colours, a ruby, sapphire and diamond. Any Irish lad thinking of doing this, could get an emerald, diamond and citrine inside the band but I haven’t seen anyone do this yet so feel free to copy that idea!!

These three diamonds are said to represent the trinity, ‘Father, Son and Holy Spirit’ as both Daniel and Nia are people of faith.
The diamond in this ring is said to be near flawless – based on this clarity and assuming excellent colour (colour D) and all certed (assuming GIA certificate), this ring would cost approx 35k euro plus VAT (this is my estimate of what it could be made for). The ring was made by Peter Young at INTA Gems and Diamonds – the company who made the crown for Miss California. It is a stunning diamond ring and we like the idea of the guy surprising with the ring, some traditions are good to keep.

From all of us here at – we want to wish this couple all the best in their new lives together.
