Erin Andrews set the rumor mill churning on Monday night when she posted a photo on Instagram that showcased an enormous diamond on that finger.
The Dancing With The Stars host posed with the 2.01-carat diamond, along with sparkly chandelier earrings and several other pieces on the other hand. According to E! News, the gigantic piece is not an engagement ring, but a specially-made Martin Katz jewel she rocked for the show’s premiere.
The season 20 host donned more diamonds on the other hand, wearing a 1.72-carat, brilliant-cut diamond ring, also set in 18-carat white gold on her other ring finger, which was accented with 412 round diamonds. That’s right, 412 more diamonds! Her hand accessories topped off with a set of five stackable diamond bands.
Andrews is dating L.A. Kings player Jarret Stoll, but the pair haven’t commented on any plans to walk down the aisle. Meanwhile, Dancing With The Stars debuted on Monday night to the usual fanfare, with stars like Patti LaBelle and Suzanne Somers. Andrews took over on the show around this time last year when Brooke Burke-Charvet was unceremoniously given the boot, and critics weren’t sure how she’d do. But despite a few fans who preferred Burke-Charvet in the role, Andrews won over viewers with her professionalism.
“Andrews talks with the flat, unhesitant delivery and slanginess of an experienced announcer, and she casually plants herself on the floor with a kind of no-nonsense strength. She is angular and even willowy, but her center of gravity appears to be unshakable. If you covered the Super Bowl, wouldn’t you be the same way? How would you survive otherwise?” wrote People Magazine‘s TV critic Tom Gliatto.
