“Thomas was planning on a Valentine’s Day proposal during their upcoming vacation in Vail, but couldn’t wait and presented an eight-carat canary yellow diamond ring before they got there,” a source close to LuAnn told PEOPLE. “LuAnn is over the moon in love with Thomas and considers him her soulmate and is so happy and grateful to have found love a second time.” The source continued: “The happy couple are celebrating this week with their ski vacation in Colorado.”
So, how much would the gorgeous ring cost? We consulted with Mark Keeney, VP of Marketing at Ritani, who told us: “The Duchess certainly has not tapered offer from the glamorous life of royalty with this eight carat emerald-cut fancy yellow ring. The diamond appears to be an ideal cut, flawless which would put this value north of a quarter million dollars,” he said.
After Thomas popped the question, LuAnn took to social media to share the good news with her fans — and we can only hope that we’ll get to see the romance documented on The Real Housewives of New York! The marriage marks the second for LuAnn, who was previously married to Count Alexandre De Lesseps, 66, from 1993-2009. The couple had two children — a son, Noel, and daughter, Victoria.
