The ring itself is a large oval shaped diamond that sits on a thin silver bar.
The diamond is believed to be an impressive eight carats, with Steven Stone’s engagement ring specialist Max Stone insisting that it is of the ‘highest quality’.
Commenting on the simple yet classic design, Stone explained: ‘In true Kardashian style, Kourtney’s ring is a real showstopper. The giant oval diamond is of VS2 grade, which is of the highest quality.
Looking at the pictures posted on Instagram, it seems that it is about eight carats. The huge stone is set on a thin pave band for added shine.

Ring Specialist said: ‘The simplicity of the setting reduces the size of the stone, making it look even larger. With this in mind, it is likely to cost around $1 million (£750,000).
‘This is definitely one of the most incredible celebrity engagement rings of the year.’
Kourtney confirmed her engagement to Travis on social media, as she shared a series of photos from the moment she got down on one knee with fans, along with the caption: ‘Forever’.
