Avril Lavigne Celebrates Her Anniversary With Huge 17-Carat Diamond Ring from Husband Chad Kroeger

We guess her 14-carat engagement ring was just a bit too modest, because one year after tying the knot with Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, Avril Lavigne has gotten a major bling upgrade — she’s now sporting one of the biggest rocks in Hollywood.

“I still can’t believe my 1 year anniversary gift. 17 carat emerald cut. Wow. I love my hubby,” Lavigne shared on Twitter, along with a photo of the massive sparkler, which is so large she’s struggling to keep her finger upright. The emerald-style skating rink — whoops, we mean diamond — appears to be on a platinum band, and is a classic complement to the pear-shaped stunner Kroeger proposed with. But the massive stone isn’t the biggest in Lavigne’s collection. On their wedding day, her crooner husband gifted his wife with a 20-carat emerald ring. We imagine he’s already scouting the crown jewels of European countries to find the perfect “push present” for Lavigne one day.

For now we’re holding out hope that the couple, who look happier than ever, will renew their vows, just so we can see how’d she’d one-up her black wedding dress. What do you think of Lavigne’s extremely sparkly present? Is it gorgeous or over-the-top?

wow…they made it one year! That’s 9 months, 2 weeks, 4 days and hours longer than I thought…

Ok, it’s their money and blah, blah, blah… but that’s just ridiculous.

Wow, that’s disgusting. Vulgar

This makes me sad! Do you know how many charities that kind of money could help, how many homes could be built in poor countries, and children could be fed? I guess if you have to prove your love with extravagant gifts, than so be it. Unfortunately, this world just keeps turning towards such materialistic ideals of happiness. :(

Wow, I wish I didn’t need my money THAT bad! Not hating, just sayin!

It’s like they trying to be the next Richard Burton & Liz Taylor… but without the talent, charm, or class.

Love it.

I don’t understand the point of this. Lovely he wants to get nice things for his wife, but why on earth would you UPGRADE a ring that was already 14 carats? It’s almost tacky and a bit tasteless. So what happens to the other ring?

I don’t understand the point of buying new rings every year. Just because you have the money doesn’t mean you have to do ostentatious things.

They are any oxymoron. Grunge and a huge diamond.
