Amber Heard wearing her engagement ringAmber Heard's engagement ring is believed to be worth almost $100,000.

Johnny Depp's new fiancee was spotted showing off her large diamond accessory for the first time as she watched him perform at a private charity event in Anaheim, California on Sunday night.

"This looks like a 5-carat ring. If we assume it's a white oval diamond in the five carat range, the price would be between $78,000 to $100,000," celebrity jewelry expert Zaven Ghanimian told EOnline.com

The blonde beauty, who hid the ring from photographers last week, is likely to have helped Johnny choose the ring as a source previously revealed that Amber "calls the shots" in her relationship with her The Rum Diary co-star, whom she began dating in 2012. "Amber has called the shots since day one, dictating when they went public, for example. She's half his age and that's part of why he'll do whatever she wants in order to keep her," an insider said.

"It's interesting to offer products that one must look for, special things that are difficult to find," he added, speaking about the selection process.

The Swiss-made collection is split into three product lines: the classic DG7, with a mesh Milano chain bracelet; the sporty DS5, with chronometers and chronographs tested by the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute, and the glitzy DG7 Gems, embellished with diamonds, rubies, sapphires or emeralds.

Whitney Port’s ‘Challenging’ Jewelry

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Fashion Designers,

Whitney PortWhitney Port admits it was a "challenge" creating her jewelry line.

The reality TV star - who has her own fashion line - is launching accessories line Bits & Bobs by Whitney Eve later this year and says it wasn't an easy process.

"I really had to explain and translate what was in my head to the people that know how to make it. I can't make it on my own. So that's always a challenge," she told People.

Whitney introduced Bits & Bobs on her website last month, writing, "I had a blast going through the bins and bins of chains, beads, brooches and vintage jewelry in order to achieve what we have made. I cannot wait for many more collections. It features a lot of mixed metals and chains. It's vintage-y looking. It's kind of like punk mixed with a little feminine edge. Lots of golds and silver. It's pretty exciting."

However, Whitney insists she's still full focused on her clothing line, saying, "My clothing line is really my main focus right now."
