Actor George Clooney has splurged on an estimated seven-carat engagement ring for his soon-to-be wife Amal Alamuddin. The ring is reportedly worth $750,000.
Jeweller Jean Dousett estimates the emerald-cut diamond, which is set in platinum, to cost around $750,000, reports eonline.com.
People reported that Clooney helped design the ring, which features an "ethically mined" emerald-cut diamond flanked by two tapered baguettes set in platinum.

Alamuddin, a human rights lawyer, was seen wearing the ring at a party for Cindy Crawford's husband, Rande Gerber, in Santa Barbara on Sunday. The magazine featured the ring and the couple on its cover this week.
It is reported that the couple met last year while Alamuddin was working as an adviser to Kofi Annan.
She said no to Clooney twice before agreeing the third time. He and Alamuddin have been dating since October 2013.
