An engagement ring is understood to be a symbol of love and promise for a couple. But if you can afford to splurge, this jewel can also be a thing of beauty and luxury.

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump tied the knot in 2009 and it seems to have been a great union since then.

Of course, for a wedding to take place, there must have been a proposal and a ring. Let's learn more about the stunning jewelry Jared gave the woman that was to be his wife.

Ivanka Trump's engagement ring

According to Express, Ivanka was given a large, square, cushion cut diamond in honor of her nuptials to Jared.

The ring seemed to be the perfect fit for an heiress and a later First Daughter. But it turned out the cost was quite modest considering how wealthy the couple was.

Gemmologist Alexandra Mitchell told the publication that Ivanka's ring was actually not as big and lavish as one might have expected but it seemed the couple went for what they really wanted.

It was reported that the ring was jointly designed by the couple and Ivanka actually wanted something understated. As for the price, Alexandra suspected that it could have cost up to $513,000.

Despite the ring's worth, fans of Ivanka may have noticed that she doesn't really wear it as much. In fact, reports say she has worn it only handful of times since wedding day to Jared.

When she was a guest on The View shortly after her wedding, Ivanka said:

I was engaged for three months and then I've been married around eight days, so it's sitting on my bedside table. I forget about the hardware.

Ivanka Trump knows good jewelry

It's not a surprise to learn that Ivanka Trump had a hand in designing her own engagement ring. According to GQ, she once owned a jewelry business that had its ups and downs.

Currently, Ivanka is the senior advisor to the president of the United States.

It's possible that, like many married women, Ivanka simply prefers not to wear her ring during her duties as the sparkler can get in the way. And considering how she's always up and about during her job these days, she may find it easier to simply keep it somewhere safe.
