Tradition suggests a groom-to-be should spend three months salary on an engagement ring for his betrothed. However, when you earn as much as Gareth Bale, normal spending rules go out of the window.
Following his proposal to long-term girlfriend Emma Rhys-Jones over the weekend, the wife to be has been showing off her flashy engagement ring believed to cost £150,000. Some serious bling.
The mother-of-two, 27, is seen with her waving her left hand with the sunshine catching on the huge diamond as she walks along the beach.
While the ring is certainly more costly than most of us would expect, the cost is a drop in the ocean for the Real Madrid and Wales player, who earns around £300,000 a week.
Welsh diamond specialist from Jonathan David Jewellers told Wales News: ‘It’s a five or six carat emerald cut diamond, I can’t be sure on the clarity or colour but for a rock that size we are looking at a six figure sum. Most likely £150,000 or even more.’
