Roughly six months after confirming the breakup, the Summer House cast member shared a surprising update on her engagement ring — well, her former engagement ring. The East Coast native showed off the 4.02-carat diamond ring in August of 2022, shortly after Carl popped the question in the Hamptons. Lindsay gushed over the piece in an exclusive interview with People magazine, saying it was designed by New York-based jeweler Nicole Rose.

“This is the most incredible thing I have ever laid eyes on, except Carl,” Lindsay said about the impressive rock. “I don’t think I slept at all last night, I think I just stared at this ring. It’s gorgeous. He really crushed it, it could not have been more perfect.”

“Kind of scared about what this might mean for me,” the former Real Housewives of New York City star captioned the social media post. In the comments section fans ripped into Frankel, calling her “showy” and “too braggy.”

“I have a huge diamond too but I’m never showy about it or try to show off what I own,” one social media user wrote, to which Frankel replied, “Good for you. You may also not have a sense of humor, so you can’t show that off.”

Frankel proceeded to respond to a different fan who shared, “Love Bethenny. Just a little ick here. It’s beautiful. It’s very, very large. I’m happy for her and she can carry it off, but this is too braggy. It’s not safe to post. Look at what happened to Kim.” (Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in October 2016 while in Paris for Fashion Week. The thieves stole all of her jewelry, including her $4 million engagement ring from then-husband Kanye West.) Frankel asserted, however, that her jewel is secured

Engagement Ring Sales Are Down, and the World Largest Jeweler Says the Pandemic Is to Blame

The pandemic took a toll on most facets of life. The effects to one area in particular—dating—are still reverberating through society.

Signet Jewelers, the largest jewelry retailer in the world, blamed Covid-19’s impact on dating for the fewer engagement rings it’s selling this year, The New York Times reported on Friday. The jeweler, which owns Kay and Zales, cut both its sales and profit estimates for the rest of 2023.

“As we predicted, there were fewer engagements in the quarter resulting from Covid’s disruption of dating three years ago,” Signet CEO Virginia C. Drosos told investors on Thursday, according to the Times. “We began to see softening at higher price points, which previously had been relatively insulated, and lower price points remained under pressure,” Signet CFO Joan Hilson added.

While a lack of dating over the past couple of years may have contributed to fewer people shopping for diamond rings, a handful of other factors have also been at play: Consumers are trying to buy less thanks to the rapid inflation hitting the United States, and they’ve become more nervous about the direction of the economy. That’s impacted spending habits across the board, but especially on big-ticket items like expensive jewelry. (The wedding industry in general has experienced a rough couple of years, as ceremonies and parties were canceled thanks to the pandemic. But many wedding-related activities returned in full force in 2022, and the current slowdown could be a corrective to that boom.)

However, some luxury jewelers have been insulated from these pressures, thanks to wealthy individuals’ proclivity to continue spending. Tiffany & Co., for example, saw continued growth in the beginning of 2023, including strong jewelry sales, The New York Times noted.

“Everybody was expecting 2023 to be a
