He’s Mr frickin’ France – the ring was ALWAYS going to be a super chic stunner.
And that’s why we have pretty much all been obsessing over it since the news broke this morning that Cheryl Cole got secretly married last week.
So you can imagine how super excited we were to receive exclusive goss on that massive sparkler hanging off Cheryl’s engagement finger.
Speaking to a fine diamond jeweler expert Lewis Malka, he reckons that the ring was a blimmin’ excellent choice and gave Cheryl his utmost approval.
“It appears Cheryl has a lovely 5 carat, emerald cut, diamond engagement ring, enhanced with trapezium cut diamonds on the shoulders, in a platinum claw set ring,” he says.
“Whilst a lot of people are opting for the big spread of the halo design, Cheryl’s ring seems to be very understated. Her Wedding band is pave set with diamonds all the way round. Very chic.”
10/10 on the ring front, then.
After asking for an exclusive price quote on the impressive bling we weren’t surprised when we were given a predictably ridiculous six figure sum.
“Lewis estimates the rings to be worth £200-250,000,” we were told right before our jaws hit the keyboard.
She said her back tattoo was worth the price of a small car and now her finger bling is worth the price of a small house.
We have also been told that this is worth more than BOTH the rings Ashley Cole bought Cheryl.
Vashi Dominguez, CEO and founder of online diamond brand Vashi.com, says: “Originally, Ashley Cole proposed to Cheryl with a sweet heart-shaped diamond engagement ring worth around £150,000.”
“After the cheating scandal, he attempted to ‘wow’ her back and bought her a huge six-carat princess cut diamond ring, with a complementing dazzling yellow diamond halo setting. This set him back £160,000.”
So basically, Mr France wins.
Cheryl revealed her news last night via her MazSight page and a picture of a huge sparkly rock courtesy of Jean Bernard.
She posted: “I usually do not discuss my personal life but to stop the speculation I want to share my happy news…Jean-Bernard and I married on 7/7/14.. We are very happy and excited to move forward with our lives together…”
According to The Sun the pair got hitched in a super secret ceremony in Kate Middleton’s favourite getaway island, Mustique – watched by just FOUR guests.
Mum joan and her PA Lily England were two of the intimate congregation who saw the pair tie the knot on the Macaroni Beach.
Seriously sneaky or what?!
And according to the tabloid, things are going so well that they can’t wait to start a family. LITTLE CHERYLS!
Mr France is of the ‘when you know, you know’ camp, clearly. However, it’s now clear that Cheryl has been feeling all fiery and French as well.
A friend close to the couple told The Mirror yesterday: “Their relationship has really hotted up, and he’s a very impulsive guy.
“It’s only early days but Jean-Bernard isn’t shy about admitting his feelings and has told Cheryl what he wants.
“He thinks the two of them are perfect together and would love to marry her. To people who don’t know him it might seem rushed but he’s a passionate Frenchman – he wears his heart on his sleeve.”
This is Cheryl’s second marriage since she divorced footballer Ashley Cole back in 2010 – after he broke her heart.
Cheryl and Jean-Bernard have been together since they met in Cannes in May.
Speaking about her new French HUSBAND recently, she said: “Things are going good between us.”
Er, understatement much?
And when asked whether she was ‘in love’ at the Capital Summertime Ball she reportedly smiled and coyly avoided the question. We think we now know the answer.
This is Cheryl’s first relationship since she split up with backing dancer Tre Holloway last summer.
However, it’s only been eleven weeks- guess it’s too late to learn ‘Hold your horses’ in French now.
