Ring Tales: Sonam's ring costs THIS much; Neha inherits family heirloom

While the Bollywood buffs lived blissfully, not many were aware of Sonam's engagement to long-time beau Anand Ahuja. But all that changed when the couple tied the knot on the 8th of May in a true blue Punjabi wedding. And while Sonam looked every bit breathtakingly beautiful in her bridal avatar, here are some deets about her engagement ring and mangalsutra.
According to reports, the big fat rock on Sonam's finger costs a whopping Rs 90 lakh! That's right. Although it doesn't beat Asin's 20-carat solitaire worth Rs 6 crore or Shilpa's 20-carat diamond ring worth Rs 3 crore, it's still blinding.

Another fun fact from Sonam's wedding is that her custom-made mangalsutra has the sun signs of the couple attached to it. A report said that Sonam's “custom-made holy mangalsutra has their sun signs – Sonam’s Gemini and Anand’s Leo on each side of the solitaire that’s placed in between”.

This isn't the first time the couple has given us relationship goals. In a recent interview during her visit to Cannes when questioned about changing her name, the actress said, "I have the choice to change and not change my name. Kapoor is my family name, so is Ahuja. I am a part of that family too, so I chose to keep both the names. In fact, Anand has also changed his name and nobody noticed that."

Cute, isn't it?


On the other hand, Neha Dhupia who got hitched to longtime best friend Angad Bedi in a hush-hush ceremony received a ring that is a family heirloom. A source close to the newlyweds reported to a leading daily that the ring has been passed on for generations and that this is the third generation which is wearing it.

The source also added, “This is a family legacy that is now passed on to Neha and Angad. His parents have been married for the past 40 years and now they want to see the happiness and togetherness forever for the newly-weds. The ring signifies those sentiments."
