Carrie Underwood isn’t the only American Idol winner with a canary yellow diamond engagement ring. Season 1 winner Kelly Clarkson shared a photo of a similar ring made by the same designer when her former husband Brandon Blackstock proposed.

“It’s a yellow canary diamond with diamonds around it and Brandon designed it with Johnathon Arndt!” Clarkson tweeted (per E! News). “They did an amazing job! I can’t wait to make Brandon’s ring with Johnathon as well!”

The Voice judge started dating the talent manager, who is the son of her former manager Narvel Blackstock and the former stepson of Reba McEntire, in 2012. They got married on Oct. 20, 2013, at Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tennessee. Clarkson’s husband worked as her manager while they were married, and they had two children together.

Clarkson filed for divorce in June 2020, citing irreconcilable differences. By March 2022, their divorce had been finalized.
