What a 28-Carat, $2 Million Ring Actually Looks Like on a Hand

Confession: I almost never wear jewelry. I used to have a few rings I would regularly wear, but for some reason, jewelry just seems fussy and unnecessary to me at the moment. (Maybe I'm just lazy.) So when Christie's invited me to preview pieces from its newest jewelry auction, it's safe to say I was out of my element. But then again, not a lot of people would be comfortable trying on some of the most expensive jewels in the world. We're talking an $18 million Bulgari ring and $1.5 million earrings. 

One of the rings I tried on was a 28-carat, D-color stunner that ended up being sold for an impressive $2.05 million. Below, I took a photo so you can exactly what it looks like IRL—and it definitely won't disappoint. The best part is that this particular ring's owner sold it to benefit the Children’s Hospital and Children’s Institute of Los Angeles. How cool is that? Scroll down to see what the ring looks like on my hand—and please forgive me for not getting a manicure first.
