Washington: Maria Sharapova has admitted that she feels spoiled to receive a 250,000-dollar engagement ring from her fiancé/Los Angeles Laker Sasha Vujacic.
"He completely surprised me! I’m so lucky and very much spoiled," a website quoted Sharapova as saying at Monday’s Ace Awards at Cipriani 42nd Street in NYC.
"It was very special and obviously a very memorable evening in my life.
"It’s something I’ll always remember, it was very sweet," the Russia-born Grand Slam champ said.
Jewelry expert Michael O’Connor said that her engagement ring appears to be a cushion-cut diamond of approximately 7 to 8 carats on a split-shank platinum band -- worth about 250,000 dollars.
Vujacic did the ring shopping all on his own, Sharapova confirmed.
"Thank goodness my fiance has great taste! He did good," she said.
However, the sports power couple hasn’t started planning their big day.
"We’re taking our time. Right now we’re just happy to be engaged. We’re both very focused on what we do and we travel a lot. We’re just happy to have each other!" Sharapova added.
