In 2004, Donald and Melania Trump ultimately garnered more attention than any red carpet look when they got engaged right there at the Met Gala. The night of the gala, Donald popped the question to his now-wife, Melania, with a 15-carat ring. Melania proudly showed off the stunning piece of jewelry while wearing an all-black dress (which just so happens to have landed on our list of the most tragic outfits the Trump family has ever worn).

Still, a year after he got down on one knee, Donald told The New York Times he got the 15-carat ring for a million-dollar discount — it retailed for $1.5 million. He said, “Only a fool would say, ‘No thank you, I want to pay a million dollars more for a diamond.'” But Graff Diamonds, which provided Donald with the engagement ring, said his statement wasn’t true. The company’s chairman, Lauren Graff, told Forbes the businessman was received “no favors” regarding the purchase, aka the supposed discount.

Regardless of the price tag, the night was still memorable, as Melania was happier than ever about the engagement. In 2004, she told the New York Post, “It was a great surprise. We are very happy together.” Thanks to the proposal, the Met Gala surely held a special place in Melania and Donald’s hearts, but ever since being banned, it’s likely to have tainted the bittersweet memory.
