Jenny McCarthy Engagement Ring: Not Small!

by at .  Updated at .

Jenny McCarthy is engaged to Donnie Wahlberg, as we reported yesterday. Suffice it to say, he didn't skimp when it came time to put a ring on it.

The sometimes controversial 41-year-old View co-host her massive yellow sapphire bling on the morning talk show. Check it out from a couple of angles:

Daniel Arik, the owner of Newport Jewelers, tells E! that he was commissioned to craft the ring specifically for Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg:

"Donnie was referred to us by a good friend. He came in just before St. Patrick's Day. He had an idea of what he wanted and was part of the design process."

"When he first came in, we showed him a few rings and he chose bits and pieces from each ring that he liked, we then combined what he liked and created a custom ring."

The color was a given because, well, "Jenny wanted yellow."

As for the finished product? "The ring is over 10 carats."

"The band is 18-karat white gold although you can't see the band because it's covered with diamonds. We did a custom basket for the sapphire."

"There is a row of diamonds around the center and from the side view there is a custom made gallery of diamonds. He was blown away, he absolutely loved it."

We imagine she did as well. Just a hunch we have.

Donnie likely won't have as much input when it comes to the pro-vaccine celebrity's wedding dress, but here are some ideas she might want to consider:
