Avril Lavigne Gets 17-Carat Diamond Ring From Chad Kroeger For Their Anniversary

Chad Kroeger's Jaw-Dropping Anniversary Gift To Avril Lavigne

Forget paper—Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger ditched wedding anniversary tradition in favour of something with a lot more bling.

On Thursday, Avril took to Twitter to share a sweet photo of the couple cuddling, but we were distracted by the massive sparkler sitting on her ring finger.

"I still can't believe my 1 year anniversary gift. 17 carat emerald cut. Wow. I love my hubby," tweeted the Canuck, who is now the proud (and we guess super happy) owner of one of the biggest rings in Hollywood.

The huge rock, which has a similar shape to the engagement ring Brad Pitt gave fiancée Angelina Jolie, looks as if it's set on a platinum band and is so big that it almost overwhelms the petite singer's hand.

Not to worry though—Avril is used to wearing big stones. Kroeger proposed to his fellow Canadian with a 14-carat diamond and gave his wife a 20-carat emerald ring on their wedding day.

Lucky girl!
