You could power a city off the shine from Gabrielle Union's new engagement ring.

The Bring It On alum, 41, couldn't wait to announce her engagement to basketball star Dwyane Wade, 31. She showed off her ring last night, an 8.5-carat cushion cut diamond made by Jason of Beverly Hills.

It’s huge! And according to TMZ, it’s worth nearly $1 million. Yep, can you imagine wrapping one meeeelllion dollars around your finger? Do not let that baby slip down a drain.

Apparently it took a lot of work to find The One. TMZ was told Dwyane had been hunting for the rock of Gabrielle's dreams for months, and Jason of Beverly Hills reportedly made three trips to Miami to look for the perfect jewel. This is it. (Jason Arasheben, CEO of Jason of Beverly Hills, later confirmed the three visits and $1M figure to E! News. So it's not even an exaggeration.)

Apparently size does matter, on occasion!

After she shared the news Gabrielle tweeted, “Maaaaaannn... I'm floatin! Thank you SO much for all the love, well wishes & support!” She also apologized for her hands, as if they weren’t perfect. “And yes my hands were ashy... And yes my nails arent done... I was truly caught off guard but happy nonetheless :) lmao #ashyknucklesbringgoodluck.” She looked amazing — besides, everyone was just staring at the ring!   

Congrats again to the bling-happy couple. This will be the second marriage for both. Dwyane has two children from his previous marriage.
