Adele shows off diamond ring amid rumours she’s married to boyfriend Rich Paul

Adele has been photographed wearing a diamond ring, just weeks after calling her boyfriend Rich Paul her “husband” on more than one occasion.

On Sunday 15 October, the Grammy winner took to Instagram to show off some photos from her Las Vegas residency. However, each photo in the carousel featured the singer wearing a large diamond ring – specifically on her ring finger.

“Weekend 31,” she captioned the social media post, in which she wore a Swarovski crystal-studded black velvet Cong Tri gown and accessorised with a massive emerald-cut sparkler and a pavé band.

One of the photos also showed Adele holding up a copy of Paul’s recently released memoir, titled Lucky Me. The photo expertly showcased the ring, while the bottom half of the singer’s face was covered.

This is the second time that a diamond ring worn by Adele has sparked engagement rumours.

On 16 September, the “Hello” singer referred to herself as Paul’s wife during a performance at her Las Vegas residency at The Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace. While answering questions from guests in the audience, one female fan asked Adele to marry her.

Adele went on to politely decline the marriage request, saying: “You can’t marry me, I’m straight, my love. My husband’s here tonight, he’s here.”

Adele shows off diamond ring on Instagram after calling Rich Paul her ‘husband’

Are they or aren’t they?

Adele and boyfriend Rich Paul have been sparking fresh marriage rumors in recent days, and the “Rolling in the Deep” singer added more fuel to the fire Sunday when she gave fans a look at an enormous diamond ring on her left hand in some new photos from her Las Vegas residency.

“Weekend 31” the Grammy winner, 35, captioned her Instagram post, sharing pics of herself in a Swarovski crystal-studded black velvet Cong Tri gown while wearing a massive emerald-cut sparkler with a pavé band.

In one photo, Adele holds a copy of Paul’s new memoir, “Lucky Me,” in front of her face as the sparkling ring sits front and center.

The bauble is similar — but not identical — to the 10-carat Tiffany & Co. style she wore with her burgundy velvet Louis Vuitton gown at the 2023 Grammys in February.

This isn’t the first diamond ring she’s worn on that finger; the “Rumor Has It” singer sparked engagement speculation with a giant pear-shaped stone at the Brit Awards in 2022, wearing it again during one of her February 2023 Vegas shows.

That jaw-dropping Lorraine Schwartz gem — which, at the time, several diamond experts told Page Six Style appeared to be in the 10-carat range — could be worth “close to the $1 million mark,” according to Rare Carat COO Apeksha Kothari.

Meghan Markle skips engagement ring second time amid concerns for Diana’s diamonds

Meghan Markle skips engagement ring second time amid concerns for Diana’s diamonds 

Meghan Markle was spotted without the iconic jewellery piece during her appearance with Prince Harry in New York, five months after their alleged ‘catastrophic car chase’ incident.

While the Duchess of Sussex had been wearing a wedding band while addressing the audience on Tuesday for their mental health summit, she was notably missing her engagement ring.

Prince Harry had proposed to the former Suits actress in 2017 with a three-stone diamond ring. The ring’s design, which Harry designed himself, featured a big diamond that was sourced from Botswana along with two smaller diamonds from Princess Diana’s collection.

During the Invictus Games, last month, Meghan also chose to skip the ring and stick to her wedding band for the 8-day event in Düsseldorf, Germany.

With the ongoing speculation regarding why Meghan ditched the ring for the second time, Joanna Wyganowska Design expert and Gemologist at Queensmith told The Mirror of “very good reasons.”

Wyganowska shared that the ring, estimated to be upwards of $200,000, is “invaluable and extremely sentimental,” which means she may opt to avoid wearing it for “fear of damage or loss.”

She explained that it’s “very common” to get rings serviced or resized over the years.

“An engagement ring is something that may be worn every single day and therefore can become damaged for example a setting may come loose,” she said. “As Harry proposed to Meghan six years ago, it may very well be that she is simply getting the ring serviced.”

Previously, sources revealed that Prince William is “putting the word out through mutual friends that he wants to know what’s going on” with the ring as “not knowing where they are is disturbing” for him, per insiders for New Idea.

Nick, 61, matched his wife-to-be in a navy shirt and blazer with a pair of beige chino trousers.

The happy couple has come under scrutiny for their 28-year age difference.

The couple have been together since 2021 and met when Katie’s daughters befriended Nick’s youngest lad Eddie, eight, at a play centre.

The DIY SOS host split from his wife Jessica Rose Moor in 2016 and dated Emily Hallinan, 26, for a year before they split in 2020.

He was also married to Gillian Knowles from 1996 to 2000.

Katie is mum to Savannah, eight and Alex, five from a previous relationship, and Nick has four children from three different relationships.

He and Gillian share his daughter Tuesday and son Charlie and he also has another son TJ with dancer Paula Beckett.

He and Jessica welcomed Eddie to the world in 2014.

Antiques Roadshow guest claims ‘never taking it off’ after diamond rings staggering value | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV

Antiques Roadshow expert Joanna Hardy left her guest speechless when she valued her mother’s diamond ring, which was rolled up in a sock, at a staggering amount.

As the show came to an end, the guest and her daughter caught up with Joanna where she noted: “You weren’t going to come to my table, were you?”

The guest confessed: “We weren’t actually. We passed by you and realised there was no queue.

“We thought, well actually, my daughter said ‘That’s a jewellery place, shall we show her the ring?’ I said ‘Why not?’.”

Joanna asked: “So tell me the story behind this,” to which the guest revealed: “The ring was my mums, we’re pretty sure it was given to her by my late grandfather.

“We were helping her, we were clearing out stuff, and in the sock drawer we stumbled upon this ring that was wrapped in a sock.”

Gasping in shock, Joanna quipped: “No, I don’t believe that,” leaving the guest to confirm: “Yes, it really was.”

Thinking of the worst-case scenario, Joanna added: “I mean it could have gone in the washing machine.”

The guest went on: “It could have, we could have bundled everything up. When I said ‘Mum, is this your ring?’ and she said ‘Oh yeah, I kept it in there so I didn’t lose it’.”

Joanna began to take a closer look at the ring and revealed: “It is absolutely superb, made in platinum, it’s about 1915, the diamond is what we call a transitional cut.

“It’s softer… really soft look about it. You’ve got the facets but nothing is sharp, the modern brilliant cut, to me, is quite brash but this has such an air of sophistication.

“It is nearly a full carat, so it’s a really large size. The clarity,

I’ve been divorced for 8 years and I still wear my engagement ring. It reminds me of how far I’ve come.

  • When I got engaged I loved my ring so much.

  • When my marriage ended my ex didn’t ask for the ring back and I didn’t offer it.

  • I still wear it as a reminder of all the hard things I’ve done in the last decade.

“That’s a beautiful ring,” the cashier at the mall says as I slide a blouse across the counter.

I glance down at my right hand out of habit: five diamonds arranged in the shape of a flower set in white gold. It’s the most expensive piece of jewelry I own — the kind that gets passed down to a granddaughter or great-granddaughter on a special day, adorning fingers and jewelry boxes long after my name has faded to memory.

The cashier hands me my receipt. I mentally steel myself for the question I know is coming: “Where did you get it?”

It was my engagement ring

A decade ago, I sat across a restaurant table from the man I loved. Platters of sushi stretched between us, delicate slices of salmon and mango curling artistically around the rice. I couldn’t stop peeking at the new ring glittering on my finger. My future husband caught me looking and smiled. I’d never liked the idea of an over-the-top surprise proposal, which sounded more like an ambush than a romantic encounter. We’d simply talked and decided we were ready for the next step. I’d chosen the engagement ring; if I was going to wear it for the rest of my life, I wanted to decide what it looked like. Instead of a typical unwieldy solitaire that would forever get caught on sweaters, I’d fallen in love with a white gold five-diamond flower design. The ring symbolized our relationship:

Charity Lawson’s Engagement Ring Is A 3-Carat Neil Lane Sparkler

Before Dotun Olubeko proposed to Charity Lawson on The Bachelorette’s Aug. 21 season finale, he consulted with Bachelor Nation’s go-to jeweler, Neil Lane, to pick out the charity-lawsons-engagement-ring-details-exclusive-7724687″perfect engagement ring. Admitting to People that he “didn’t know much about rings” beforehand, when Lane pulled out a certain oval-cut sparkler in Fiji, he “just knew” he’d found the one. His final choice: a 3-carat diamond ring with a platinum band set with 50 round-cut diamonds.

As Dotun further explained to the magazine, Lane told him the sparkler is “beautiful on the outside” but its “biggest crystals” lie inside, where a stunning diamond halo wraps around the center stone. “I was like, ‘Did you make this for Charity? Is this a test?’” he joked. “And before [Lane] even finished going through the other ones, I was like, ‘I know that’s the one. That’s the one 100-percent because that’s who Charity is . . . Elegant and classy and beautiful on the outside as ever, but so much of the worth is on the inside.”

Charity’s reaction? “When he opened it, I was just like, ‘Oh my God.’ . . . I was honestly in shock,” she told People, adding that her now-fiancé did a “10 out of 10” job picking out her engagement ring. “It’s so beautiful. I honestly think it’s perfect for me, who I am as a woman.”

ABC/Craig Sjodin

However, she and Dotun still have time to decide on their wedding bands. ABC’s Season 20 lead revealed that they “don’t have a date or anything truly picked out,” though they definitely don’t want a “17-year-length engagement” and are eyeing 2025 or 2026 for a possible wedding date. “We obviously came here to find love, and we successfully have done that,” she added. “So [we

The Real Reason Why Meghan Markle Hasn’t Been Wearing Her Engagement Ring

The Duchess of Sussex was spotted without her three-stone diamond sparkler during a lunch date with friends last week.

On November 17, 2017, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made their first debut as an engaged couple after the Duke of Sussex popped the question with a three-stone diamond engagement ring. Ever since then, the Duchess of Sussex has almost always worn the sparkler—no matter the occasion. However, on August 15, 2023, Markle was spotted without the valuable piece of jewelry on her left ring finger, which sparked rumors about the royal couple’s current marital status. Markle was enjoying a lunch date with two of her friends, Cleo Wade and Kadi Lee, celebrating a belated birthday lunch, which was most likely for the duchess, who turned 42 on August 4, 2023. A photo taken of the group shows that Markle’s diamond rock was absent, replaced by a gold band. A few days after the luncheon, on August 18, 2023, an insider revealed the real reason why Markle ditched her engagement ring, and it has nothing to her marriage to Harry. The source tells markle-hasnt-been-wearing-her-engagement-ring-from-prince-harry/” data-ylk=”slk:Page Six;elm:context_link;itc:0″ class=”link “Page Six that the ring is simply “being fixed.”

Louella Anderson, cofounder of So Synced, told The Mirror that there could be other reasons why Meghan decided to ditch her engagement ring. “Meghan Markle has always had her own unique sense of style,” she says. “It’s possible that her decision to change or remove the engagement ring reflects her evolving taste or desire for something different. She’s not over the top about her jewelry and usually chooses to keep her look quite simple and classic. Taking off the ring could be her way of expressing this personal preference for a less flashy look. Meghan’s engagement ring was particularly large and

Consumer Report: Lab-Grown Diamonds

The market for lab-grown diamonds is exploding this wedding season, putting larger gems onto more hands than ever.

But some say that shine can wear off when the synthetic stones quickly lose their value.

Pandora, the largest jeweler in the world, is now very much in the diamond business.

Last year, the company that’s well-known for its accessible charm bracelets began selling lab-grown diamonds set in rings and other jewelry.

The diamonds are offered at prices Pandora says make sense for their slice of the jewelry market.

“What we are seeing a lot is people that always dreamed but never had a chance to buy a diamond. Now they can,” said Luciano Rodembusch, Pandora’s North American President.

At Pandora, a one carat diamond ring goes for less than $2,000, while a 2-carat piece sells for roughly $5,000, a fraction of what similar, mined stones would cost.

Pandora says its lab-created diamonds are manufactured in U.S. facility using 100% renewable energy.

“Ours are going to be one-fifth to one-seventh of the price,” Rodembusch said.

According to The Knot, the popularity of lab-grown diamonds has doubled since 2020.

In 2022, more than a third of engagement ring center stones were manufactured, not mined.

Regardless of the source, the diamonds are visually and chemically the same.

But, some argue that there is a key value difference.

Olivia Landau, co-founder and CEO of custom jewelry company The Clear Cut, sells only natural diamonds, which she says hold or even increase in monetary value.

“Lab grown diamonds hold zero value. They’re mass produced. You can create an endless supply of them,” Landau said. “They’re kind of the fast-fashion of diamonds, whereas natural diamonds do hold inherent value.”

The Clear Cut does use lab-grown diamonds but it actually gives them away for free,

Miss Manners: My fiance wants a diamond ring, even if the stone comes from Russia

DEAR MISS MANNERS: I am very much against Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and I don’t want to support it by buying a diamond engagement ring, since the stone is likely to come from Russia.

I told my fiancee I would like to buy her a ruby, emerald or sapphire ring — her choice — but she says the only ring appropriate for an engagement is a diamond. What is your advice?

GENTLE READER: This is not the jewelry department, so Miss Manners cannot advise you on how to find a diamond with a clear provenance (or a lab-created one). But that is what you must do.

The reason is not because there is any etiquette rule about diamond rings. Frankly, we don’t even care if there is a ring, much less what type. Etiquette considers that all an engagement requires is an agreement between two people to be married. It is not we who invented that bended-knee routine.

But your fiancee craves this. And your marriage will go better if you acknowledge that while a spouse’s moral convictions should be respected, so should a spouse’s emotional longings.

**                                **                                **

DEAR MISS MANNERS: If one is dining alone at a restaurant and must burp, what should one do afterwards? It seems coarse to say nothing, but it seems odd to try to engage nearby diners.

By saying “excuse me,” would one be asking the salt shaker for a pardon?

GENTLE READER: Even if dining alone, one should say “excuse me.” Especially if the people at the next table jumped.
