For Patrick Mahomes, 2020 was a big year both on and off the field.

He became the youngest quarterback to receive the Super Bowl MVP award. And on September 1st, he popped the question to his high school sweetheart, Brittany Matthews.

Find out more about her gorgeous diamond ring below.

How Many Carats is Brittany's Ring?

Brittany rocks a stunning radiant-cut diamond with an estimated weight of 8 to 10 carats.

On average, most couples aim for a 1-carat diamond. But it seems Mahomes spared no expense for his longtime girlfriend of 8 years.

Carat size has the biggest impact on diamond prices. So you can expect this massive ring to cost a pretty penny.

Diamonds are assessed for quality using the 4Cs:
  • Color: how much of a colored tint it has
  • Clarity: how many flaws it has (internal and external)
  • Cut: how the diamond's proportions reflect light
  • Carat: how much the diamond weighs

It's tough to put an exact price on Brittany Matthew's ring without knowing the complete specs of her diamond. But we can make an educated guess—and it's quite the hefty price tag.

How Much Did Brittany's Ring Cost?

Brittany's ring is estimated to have cost between $350,000 and $800,000.

In 2020, Mahomes made roughly $10.8 million. According to the outdated 2-months salary rule, he should have spent around $1.8 million on the engagement ring.

Still, $350,000+ is a staggering amount for a ring!

(Read our article to learn why the 2-months salary rule is a bad idea and how much to spend instead.)

Fun Fact: Patrick Mahomes signed a record-breaking $503 million, 10-year contract with the Kansas City Chiefs in July 2020. This is the first professional sports contract to break half a billion dollars.

Large diamonds cost more since they're much less common than smaller diamonds. The stone's color, clarity, and cut also makes a difference. The rarer a diamond is, the more expensive it will be.

Finally, the actual style of the ring can also impact price. If you're looking to take inspiration from Brittany's ring, learn more about the type of ring next.

What Style is Brittany's Ring?

Brittany Matthews sports a radiant-cut diamond with a double band encrusted in smaller diamonds. This style is also called "pavé" since the band is paved with tiny diamonds.

Radiant-cut diamonds are very flattering since they elongate the finger. The radiant cut is one of the most sparkly diamond shapes. It's great for those who want the rectangular shape of an emerald-cut diamond but with more flash.

The bands are made of either white gold or platinum. If the ring is on the higher end of the cost estimate, it's most likely made of platinum. This material is rarer and more expensive than gold.

Bottom Line

If you don't have $350,000 or more to drop on an engagement ring, don't worry. You can still get a gorgeous ring without breaking the bank.

You can get the best bang for your buck with VS2 diamond clarity and H diamond color. From there, you can build out the engagement ring of your dreams that will fit your budget.
