Hoda's Engagement Ring

Hoda Kotb from the Today Show is engaged to her longtime boyfriend Joel Schiffman.

 

The ring is estimated to be a five carat asscher cut diamond, surrounded by sapphires with diamonds on the band. He created it with the help of Hoda's friend Jennifer Miller, a jeweler.

 

Hoda said she knows nothing about rings and has worn the same bracelets and earrings for a year. She said the ring looks like a stop sign lol and she thought it had sapphires. That he knows she doesnt even care about a ring, but it was so meaningful to her that he took the time to help design the ring.

I don't care and do not understand the fascination with Hoda's engagement.

Reminds me of the ring QVC sold that Amy wears or wore. Different shape, maybe, smaller.

I agree.  She said it looked like a stop sign?  I think it looks just like my Dlaminique ring I bought a few years ago.

Re: Hoda's Engagement Ring

I would have preferred a really nice car (like a Ferrari) as an engagement gift -- or at the very least -- a Cartier tank watch.    I wear a gold cigar band wedding ring....

 no diamonds.
