Boshoff, in her article, reports that Smith is wearing an 11-carat diamond engagement ring. The story further adds that the 92-year-old Murdoch picked the ring personally and presented it to Smith on March 17.

Murdoch is engaged to marry for the fifth time, as per a report by New York Post. The media mogul told the tabloid: “I was very nervous. I dreaded falling in love – but I knew this would be my last. It better be. I’m happy.

His fifth fiancee was previously married to country-western singer Chester Smith as well as a radio and TV executive who died in 2008. The report adds that the two bonded over media business. Smith told NY Post: “For us both it’s a gift from God. We met last September. I’m a widow 14 years. Like Rupert, my husband was a businessman. Worked for local papers, developed radio and TV stations and helped promote Univision. So I speak Rupert’s language. We share the same beliefs.”

The 66-year-old was spotted wearing the diamond ring when she and Murdoch arrived at Los Angeles airport this week. Contributing editor to Vogue and leading international authority on jewellery Carol Woolton, as per Daily Mail, said that the ring ‘is the best of the best’.

“There is a similar ring coming up for auction at Sotheby’s for £1million, but at retail that might be £2million.  It’s interesting that it’s so traditional. The invincibility of the diamond as a stone goes with the idea of forever love. It suggests it’s been given by an old-fashioned romantic. It’s the largest size diamond that you could wear every day. If you’re getting engaged at this point in your life, she’s going to want to wear things, not lock them away in a safe,” Woolton added.
