    Dwyane Wade sure did well! As Us Weekly reported on Saturday, Dec. 21, the NBA player proposed to girlfriend Gabrielle Union -- and with a stunning 8.5-carat diamond ring by Jason of Beverly Hills, no wonder she said yes! The gorgeous cushion cut stone, which Union, 40, and Wade, 31, both shared via Instagram following the Miami Heat player's proposal, is "valued at nearly 1 million dollars," Jason Arasheben, the CEO of Jason of Beverly Hills tells Us.

    "I made 3 separate personal visits to Miami to present different options until we found the perfect stone," Arasheben tells Us. "Dwyane had been planning it for months and was very particular to find the stone of Gabrielle's dreams," he adds.

    It's no surprise Wade was so particular about finding the perfect rock for his girlfriend of four years. Credited for bringing "geek chic" style to the NBA, the athlete also has his own shoe line and front row seats to runway shows each season.

    Wade and the actress, 40, have been dating since 2009 and have publicly gushed about their love for one another.

    "She makes my eyes sparkle," Wade said of his gal pal during Oprah's Next Chapter back in July 2012. Following a contentious 3-year court battle with ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches, Wade was awarded custody of his two sons, Zaire and Zion.

    "The biggest time she makes my eyes sparkle is when Zaire comes home and homework is a little hard that day, so he's stressing, and she goes to the table with him and she sits down until he gets it," he shared. "And at that time my heart is smiling a little bigger that day because I know her love is deeper than just me," Wade professed to Oprah Winfrey.

    Though an engagement did not come until a year and a half later, Wade already knew Union was it: "We're a family, and we're growing as a family every day. And I think that's the great thing about it," he said last year. "We have so much more room to improve as a family and it's awesome."

    It's plain and simple. I'd have no problem accepting this little bauble.

    Yes, if you are going to go HUGE, simplicity is good. I wouldn't want to be the recipient of a left hook from her, that's for sure. That thing'll put your eye out!

    It's ugly because it's so huge. It's not pretty in the slightest. The bigger these rings look the tackier and more cubic zirconia to me. Looks like a ring you'd find in a cracker or get free with 17 mag.

    Far too big, it's horrendously gaudy. Do not like at all.

    But congrats! They're a gorgeous couple aren't they?

    it's way too big but at least it's nice and simple and not surrounded by a gazillion side stones and halos and filigree and shit.
    also, she's marrying a professional athlete? i hope she enjoys being cheated on.

    Was gonna say after I read that part - get that ring insured in her name, build the house, pop out two kids and stay the 10 year course. Set for life!

    Nope, not true. The two met started dating in 2009... Wade's crazy ass ex wife filed for divorce in 07 and even admitted that the two only hosted a party together in 07 after she left him. She filed a lawsuit against Union in 2010 for having foreplay with Wade in front of the kids, but it was thrown out once it was proven Union was on set during that time. Wade later gained full custody of both sons.
    Still an ugly ring!!

    Especially since he cheated on his wife to be with her. A cheating professional athlete - good luck.

    Edited to add: I should have read the whole thread before posting! I didn't realize he wasn't with his wife when he got together with her.
