Nicki Minaj‘s new husband, Kenneth “Zoo” Petty, went to great lengths to get his lady the wedding ring she deserved.
According to TMZ, Petty meticulously oversaw all the details on the design of the ring and spent an exorbitant amount of cash to get the ring to his liking.
Nicki showed off the huge rock on her social media on Wednesday, and the jeweler who made it, Rafaello and Co., told TMZ that Petty handled the design, delivery, and paid for the ring, valued at $1.1 million all on his own.
Petty commissioned the jeweler to make their wedding rings, and they worked collectively on the design for several months.
The jewelers flew from New York City to Los Angeles a few days before the wedding to deliver the rings that came in a customized box that played a photo slideshow of the happy couple with Nicki’s song “Come See About Me” playing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Nicki’s ring features a 17 carat center with VVS2-clarity diamonds, while Petty’s band was customized with the words “Ken & Barbie” engraved on the inside of the band.
Petty wanted a traditional wedding ring for his wife with the simple specification of “nice diamonds and nothing too gaudy.”
