Snooki shows off her big engagement ring: is it real or fake as her tan?

Well, I supposed this is as good a confirmation as any that Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is indeed engaged to her boyfriend of eighteen months, Jionni LaValle. Snooks and Jenni “J-Woww” Farley were rolling film on their new MTV spinoff show yesterday while en route to take J-Woww’s little toy dogs (that’s Lean Cuisine walking Snooki) to doggie daycare. On the way, Snooki flashed her shiny new engagement ring in the direction of photographers, but WENN says that she removed the ring after dropping the pups off. No matter, for her mission was accomplished. Can we get a closeup or two, please?

Not bad, right? I’m really bad at eyeballing the size of diamonds (especially when there are several little stones as well as a larger one involved), but that’s gotta be at least a few carats of rock on that orange hand. People says that Jionni picked it out, and I’m assuming that means he paid for the ring as well:

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi demanded a big engagement ring – but is that what she got?

A few hours after PEOPLE broke the news of her engagement, the pregnant Jersey Shore star – who just said “yes” to a proposal from Jionni LaValle – was photographed wearing some fancy ring-finger bling that a source tells PEOPLE LaValle picked out himself.

“He knows it should be big, ’cause if it’s small I’m saying no, like, ‘Get another ring!’ “Polizzi, 24, told PEOPLE in January, prior to her engagement.

Sporting long, straight dark hair with thick burgundy undertones, the pint-sized reality princess accompanied BFF Jenni “JWoww” Farley, as the two gals took their dogs to the K9dergarten, while they filmed their spinoff in Jersey City, N.J.

An onlooker says Polizzi eventually removed the flashy jewelry as the day of shooting progressed.

Now here’s a relevant question: Are these real diamonds, and if so, how on earth did Jionni afford such a ring? He’s not pulling in the big reality show money like Snooki (who made $100,000 per episode shooting the last two seasons of “Jersey Shore”). Although Snooki has made reference to Jionni having a job, it’s probably just a part time gig because he’s also currently studying for his teaching degree as well. Maybe MTV contributed some money for the ring, or maybe Jionni’s been saving up for awhile, but I kind of doubt that Snooki would notice if he bought her cubic zirconia instead of diamonds. She just wanted something big and blingy.

There’s still been no definite word on Snooki’s denied but unofficially confirmed pregnancy, but since People ran with the story yesterday, it’s as good as true.

    Maybe she found herself a K-Fed and she paid for the ring herself? Although I think you are right in the fact that she probably wouldn’t notice if it were CZ. She would just look at it and be all “oooh, sparkly”.

    Why people think that everything People will print is true?
    When we all know that is it in general just PR with the celebrity and her team.
    It could be just a game to boost their Tv show ratings. A clever game because everything is talking about this false reality show. False meaning everything is scripted.

    Poor baby. She’s too immature and a drunk. The only thing I can say for Snooky, she has a strong father advising her on not squandering her money, and I think she is banking her money and not blowing it all. So when her fame is up, she will be okay financially.

    There goes Dumb and Dumber!

    Why must she always dress like this?!

    • gg says:

      These two have never had any guidance on being tasteful. Snooki is only happy if she’s drawing any kind of attention – so she dresses “like a New Jersey skank” (her words). I lament the fact that now these Ronald McDonald Red extensions will be seen on every ho from here to Vegas and they hurt my eyes.

      I just really hope she’s not boozing it up while pregnant.

    I don’t care if Snooki is pregnant, engaged, or if the ring is real. I just want this tacky troll-doll to go away. In fact, while I’m at it, I wish Blohan, Kartrashian, AND Snooki would ALL go away at the same time. They could all discuss how they are all so much better/richer/prettier than everyone else in the world…..

    please get these orange famewhores out of jersey city. and new jersey in general. :)

    In that last photo, she’s not wearing it, hahaha!! Scripted much?!

    Nevermind the ring – what is up with the giant hideous earrings?

    I think the ring is fake or she’d never have taken it off. Pink diamonds are notoriously expensive – much more so than white diamonds, and that looks like at least a 4-5 carat stone. So either she paid for it, or saw a CZ and got that instead for now, just to make people talk. As people do.

    ugh those earrings. and those shoes. and that bag. and that tan. and that face. ugh snooki, just a bigh ugh

  11. some bitch says:

    My goodness, the 80s threw up all over her. I hope she’s saving and investing her money wisely when her fame dries up. As for the baby, best of luck to her and the father.

  12. gee says:

    If that’s like a 2 carat low quality diamond with low quality chips, he could probably get it for a couple thousand.

  13. Ana says:

    Why in the last pic she does not have the ring?

  14. truthful says:

    100,000 per episode?????


    what a waste of loot, smdh
