Even the ring Nick Lachey got Jess the first time her ring finger got rocked is worth more than Vanessa’s!

It looks like Jessica Simpson is already one up on her ex-husband Nick Lachey‘s new fiancée Vanessa Minnillo — or $250,000. Both Jessica’s new engagement ring and the one from her first marriage to Nick are worth more than the one Nick recently gave to Vanessa when he proposed to her earlier this month! spoke to a prominent diamond expert in the know, and he tells us that Jessica’s fiancé Eric Johnson gave her an eight-carat ruby, $250,000 Neil Lane sparkler when he proposed last week. Nick gave Jess a five-carat round brilliant cut diamond that Aslam Bakshi, owner of Diamond Images USA, Inc. in Miami, Fla., estimated cost about $500,000!

Poor Vanessa only got a four-carat ring that roughly cost between $200,000-$225,000, according to our source. Boohoo!
