Tiffany Trump’s fiancé Michael Boulos reportedly proposed to her with a 13-carat emerald-cut diamond from Dubai that is estimated to be worth up to a staggering $1.2 million.
In exclusive pictures obtained by DailyMail.com, Tiffany, 27, the daughter of US outgoing president Donald Trump, is pictured showing off the stunning ring, which was designed by New York-based jeweler and diamond dealer Samer Halimeh, who works ‘for the one percent of the one percent’.
A spokesperson for Samer Halimeh New York revealed that the ring features a massive emerald-cut center stone flanked with two trapeze cut diamonds.
While the jeweler is yet to reveal the price, an independent expert estimated that it is worth more than $1 million.
Denis Stepansky, founder and owner of online luxury retailer ItsHot Diamond Jewelry and Watches, told DailyMail.com that a ring similar to Tiffany’s would cost $1 to $1.2 million.
The report said, Michael, 23, who is the heir to the multi-billion dollar Nigerian conglomerate Boulos Enterprises, flew to Dubai with Halimeh to choose the ring, which he selected and purchased in the city.

‘This is a high-quality diamond with a high carat weight, which seems about right for Tiffany’s celebrity status,’ Stepansky said.
Speaking to the Evening Standard, the manager of the store, Maan Chakhchir, said the couple is ‘very down-to-earth and clearly very happy together.’
