Anna Faris is officially engaged.
The actress, 43, was first spotted wearing a canary yellow diamond in November that was speculated to be an engagement ring. However, she kept quiet about the big news — until her “Moms” co-star Allison Janney confirmed it on Monday.
“I know she’s been engaged for a long time,” Janney, 60, revealed to Us Weekly. “I kept it very quiet, I’ll have you know! So, I celebrated with them a long time ago.”
According to Janney, Faris let her unconventional ring do the talking instead of making an announcement to the public and even her friends and family.
Spokesperson for Shane Co., Mary Frances Joseph, estimates that the center cushion-cut yellow diamond weighs in at 4 carats; it sits in a split-shank diamond halo setting.
“While halo engagement rings remain a top choice for brides today, we love Anna’s trendsetting choice for a yellow center stone,” Joseph told Page Six Style, estimating the sparkler’s value at between $75,000 and $100,000.
However, experts at Rare Carat — who put the size of the halo-set stone at closer to 3 carats — think Faris’ ring may have cost less.
“From the picture, the center stone appears to be more on the ‘light’ side of the fancy yellow scale, rather than the more expensive ‘intense’ fancy yellow colors that command higher prices,” CEO Ajay Anand told us. “Given this, we’d estimate the stone to be $20,000.”
It’s likely that Faris wanted an atypical ring for her third marriage; the “Overboard” star was married to actor Chris Pratt from 2009 to 2017. Pratt — with whom she shares 7-year-old son Jack — married Katherine Schwarzenegger over the summer, with Faris’ blessing.
She was also previously married to actor Ben Indra from 2004-2008.
The question is, will Faris’ wedding be as low-key as her engagement?
