While Ivanka’s wedding is lavish by any standard, it is nothing compared to the cost of her father Donald’s wedding to his third wife Melania.

Attendees also enjoyed meals costing £8,300 in total for catering.
So, is Melania Trump or Ivanka Trump’s engagement ring worth more? Based on the huge discrepancy in the weddings – it’s not hard to guess.
Ivanka’s ring is worth £400,000, according to Tobias Kormind, managing director of 77Diamonds.com.
On the other hand, Melania’s huge emerald cut ring is worth £2.3million.
Tobias said: “When Melania Trump got engaged in 2004, Donald Trump bought her a 15 carat, D Flawless, emerald cut diamond ring from Graff which would today retail for $3million, which is around £2.3million.
“At the time, Trump hit the headlines for claiming he had enjoyed a 50 percent discount. Graff was later quoted saying, ‘We don’t sell items for publicity value’.”
But that is not all. Tobias continued: “A decade later on their 10th anniversary, Donald Trump upgraded the size of Melania’s ring to a 25 carat diamond, also from Graff.
