Nicki Minaj and Kenneth Petty quietly got married last week, and now details are coming out about the serious ring he put on it. Rafaello and Co designed a $1.1 million ring with Perry’s guidance, according to TMZ. It features a massive 17-carat center with VVS2-clarity diamonds. The jeweler told TMZ Perry knew Minaj wanted a traditional wedding ring with nice diamonds but not “too gaudy.”
TMZ also took care to note that Petty paid for the ring with his own money. The jeweler flew it out from New York City to Los Angeles in time for the ceremony. It came inside a jewelry box that plays a photo slideshow of the couple to the tune of Nicki’s “Come See About Me.”
Minaj and Perry have known each other since high school in Queens. They reconnected last December and obtained a marriage license this Summer.
