Halle Berry Engagement Ring

Halle has kept pretty mum about her engagement to French actor Olivier Martinez, but she’s not shy about showing off her one-of-a-kind stone!

Halle Berry and beau Olivier Martinez got engaged over the holidays, and we haven’t heard too much about their wedding plans just yet — but HollywoodLife.com has all the details about her $100,000 ring!

Jewelry experts at Anter Diamonds & Fine Jewelry in NYC told HollywoodLife.com Halle’s rock could be worth upwards of six figures!

“If it’s the cleanest emerald, it could be worth up to $100,000 — maybe more,” our expert told us about the four carat bling. “It looks like an emerald on 18kt gold setting. The band could be white gold or platinum.”

The custom-designed etching on the ring is likely filigree — a popular request that makes an engagement ring truly one-of-a-kind.

“The symbols could be something special to them, which gives it a little bit of an antique, art-deco look,” the jeweler says.

As for Olivier’s unique choice of an emerald over a diamond, colored stones aren’t as rare as you might think.

“Princess Diana’s is a sapphire, and celebrities always want to do something different,” our source says, adding that emerald is not unheard of for engagement rings, even among non-celebs!

Halle’s birthstone is peridot, also a green stone, so there may be some significance there — and there’s a good chance her sparkler came from Colombia.

“That’s where emeralds come from,” says our source. “Or at least good ones do.”

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Is Halle Berry’s extra-special ring a sign of true love?

Emeralds are the softest of the precious gems & therefore much more prone to cracking & chipping. If she plans on wearing this piece every day she is going to need to be super careful not to knock it against anything!

I have a gorgeous emerald ring that was given to me by my nanna for my 21st birthday. The stone, which was very high quality, has two quite large cracks running across the top. Now I can’t wear it because I’m scared the stone will crack right through & break.
