He proposed to his new girlfriend, Lesley Cook, on Thursday night in Miami.

And David Beador's new investment is said to be worth up to $300,000, according to Page Six.

The former RHOC 54-year-old, worth $20 million, purchased a 4-6 carat diamond for his lady love.

'Lesley’s show-stopping ring features an estimated 4-6 carat round brilliant-cut diamond surrounded by a diamond halo and set on a diamond-accented white gold or platinum band,' Page Six reported according to their source, Brilliant Earth‘s VP of strategy and merchandising, Kathryn Money.

'Her engagement ring is also coupled with two additional diamond eternity rings on either side, estimated at between 1 and 1.5 total carats each, resulting in some serious sparkle!'

Kathryn estimated the total sparkler to be worth somewhere between $150,000 to $300,000.

However, jeweler Ajay Anad from Rare Carat's valued the ring to be closer to 4 carats with a value of $150,000.

'The diamond engagement ring looks to be surrounded by two matching bands — one stacked below and one stacked above the ring, he said. 

'Assuming high quality, we’d say retail value for the set would be $150,000. It is not traditional to have two bands above and below the ring like this, or to have a band as wide as the diamond.'

The valuer continued: 'Most usually opt for a thinner band, but we would guess that this style was probably chosen for the ‘bling’ value.'  Baring all: David and Lesley are in no way shy in stripping down for the camera online.

Lesley was once again seen flashing her new accessory while watching the Super Bowl with her fiance on Sunday.

RHOC's Shannon Beador's ex-husband proposed to Lesley on Thursday while they were in Miami.

Shannon and David had a messy split in 2017 after 17-years of marriage.

The reality star was awarded a 1.4 million dollars and $10,000 a month in their 2019 divorce settlement.

And don't expect Shannon to make an appearance at the wedding.

In November, she called Lesley 'trashy' for posting nude photos with David and said her daughters were 'horrified' when they saw them.

The estranged exes are parents to Sophie, 18, and twins Adeline and Stella, 15.
