Stacey Solomon’s new £35k engagement ring to be extra sparkly
Our very own gemologist Amy Jackson comments for Hello Magazine.
Speaking about her original ring, which Stacey was given on Christmas Eve in 2020, Amy explains: “Stacey’s ring was originally a stunning halo design which has become a favourite for many over the last 15 years. The halo design appears to have featured a cushion cut centre diamond of approximately 1.5ct along with smaller diamonds wrapped around the setting and the band for ultimate sparkle.”
Stacey explained that she changed the ring because she prefers gold over silver, but Amy added the former design may not have been a “practical” choice. Now, she has a modern “timeless” rock, and the gemologist said that the TV star is not alone in wanting to alter her engagement ring.
“Stacey’s new design features the original diamond in a classic four-claw setting, this is a timeless design with the original halo diamonds now neatly set around the gallery rail of the setting (underneath the diamond) making the centre diamond the main focal point of the ring.
“This new setting is more open which allows light to reflect through the diamond easily maximising the diamond’s sparkle,” she said, adding: “It’s not at all uncommon for people to change their engagement ring setting before the big day.”
