A paper gift is traditional for a one year anniversary but don’t tell that to Chad Kroeger. The Nickelback singer got Avril Lavigne a 17-carat diamond ring to celebrate one year of marriage.
Lavigne writes: “I still can’t believe my 1 year anniversary gift … 17 carat emerald cut. Wow. I love my hubby.”
The singer deleted the photo for some reason but not before it started going viral on sites like Twitter and Facebook.
Check out that rock!
For some reason, Avril caught a little flack for posting the photo. Some people thought that the ring is too expensive for a one year anniversary while others were, well, just jerks.
In other news: Avril Lavigne’s husband gave her a 17-carat ring for their anniversary. I’m still trying wrap my mind around that one.

US Magazine reports that this is the second time that Kroeger has purchased a ridiculously big ring for his wife. When he proposed in 2012, he gave Lavigne a 14-carat pear-shaped diamond ring.
