If you're wondering what Avril Lavigne's been up to, she's been married to Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger. Lavigne's Sk8er Boi popped the question with an impressive 14-carat pear-shaped sparkler. One year later, he gifted her an even larger diamond, coming in at a redonkulous 17 carats. Many, many questions: What will next year's gift be? Is the ring meant to double as a weapon? Will Kanye gift Kim an even bigger ring on their one-year anniversary? Her ring is only a paltry 15 carats. Poor Kim.
Avril also tweeted this image with the comment, "I still can't believe my 1 year anniversary gift. 17 carat emerald cut. Wow. I love my hubby." The tweet has since been deleted; perhaps Avril realized that no one likes a social media brag.
