Music’s No. 1 bad boy has finally put a ring on it – on the finger of his on-again, off-again squeeze Hailey Baldwin’s finger that is.
But it’s not the fact that the Canadian singer, who got on one knee to propose last Saturday in the Bahamas, that got our tongues wagging.

Rather, it’s the size of the rock that Baldwin was snapped wearing that went viral. Twitter user @azymanzur snapped a photo (above) of the gigantic pear-shaped diamond sparkler on his account and you can tell the pop star did not cut corners for the occasion.
Bieber’s choice of ring proves how musicians have the best (and most extravagant) taste when it comes to picking out engagement bands. Who could forget the 15-carat diamond ring from Lorraine Schwartz that Kayne West bought for Kim Kardashian? And how about the rare 8.5-carat diamond ring that Marc Anthony gave Jennifer Lopez?
