Here's How Much Donald Trump Jr. Really Paid For His Ex-Wife's Engagement Ring


Donald Trump Jr. certainly had the cash to purchase the sparkler of Vanessa Trump’s dreams, but in the end, he opted to save his money. The New York Post branded Donald Trump’s eldest “the cheapest gazillionaire” when he proposed in the Bailey, Banks and Biddle jewelry store of Shore Hills, New Jersey with a $100,000 ring. Yes, the “4-carat, emerald-cut diamond ring” had a hefty price tag attached to it, but Junior snagged the sparkler for free in exchange for allowing paps to capture the moment. It was a move that even his father “reportedly thought was a little déclassé,” according to Vanity Fair.

Junior’s penny-pinching ways were apparently a constant throughout his marriage to Vanessa. In 2018, multiple sources told Page Six that Vanessa’s ex “treat[ed] her like a second-class citizen” and restricted her to such a tight budget that she needed to rely on others for money. According to one source, “[Junior] gives [Vanessa] very little help and has been keeping her on a tight budget. She doesn’t live a lavish life and can very rarely pick up a check at dinner.” Sources additionally confirmed that Junior’s reluctance to share money contributed to the pair’s marital woes. Another insider told People that the split had been pending for a while, and that finances were only a small part of the couple’s issues. “Even before all this Trump presidency stuff started, they weren’t good and their marriage was strained,” they said.
