Get an Up-Close Look at Just How Big Kate Upton's Engagement Ring Is

A newly engaged Kate Upton debuted her gorgeous ring at the Met Gala earlier this month, but over the weekend, we caught a close-up of the giant sparkler. Upton was in Churchill Downs for the Kentucky Derby, and her estimated eight-carat ring was on display for us to see from every angle.

The center stone sits on a four-prong setting, and the band is covered in bling along the sides and top. If you look closely, you can see that the giant rock is resting on a ring of smaller diamonds, a good trick for amplifying the sparkle factor of the center stone. 

Check out the close-ups of Upton's beautiful engagement ring below, and keep scrolling to shop picks inspired by it.
