It’s no secret that the wives of some of the biggest football stars in the industry lead incredibly lavish lifestyles – and it all began with an array of eye-watering engagement rings.
While even the mere concept of dropping half a million on a piece of jewellery might seem completely wild to some, it’s more like pocket change for these A-list football stars.
Here, we take a look at WAGs’ most expensive sparklers throughout the years from Coleen Rooney to Cheryl.
Georgina Rodriguez and Cristiano Ronaldo – £615,000
While they have yet to confirm their engagement after months of speculation, Cristiano Ronaldo is believed to have popped the question to his brunette belle with an eye-watering £615,000 rock.
Rumors were rife that the genetically blessed couple had taken the next step in their whirlwind romance when the brunette beauty posted a cryptic snap of a huge sparkling diamond.
Georgina shared a sexy snap of herself sunbathing on a yacht during their romantic Portofino trip, but it wasn’t the view that caught the attention of her admirers – it was the blinding bling on her wedding finger.
Lovebirds Ronaldo and Georgina have been together for over four years now and share two-year-old daughter Alana Martina.
Juventus striker Cristiano is also the proud father to Cristiano Ronaldo Jr, 10, and three-year-old twins Eva and Mateo.
Their love story began when they first locked eyes on one another in one of the most unexpected of places.
Georgiana was working as a sales assistant and helped the soccer star out with some luxury accessories – and the rest was history.
Megan Davison and Jordan Pickford – £500,000
Everton FC superstar Jordan Pickford treated his childhood sweetheart Megan to a breathtaking £500,000 diamond ring when he asked for her hand in marriage.
Jordan and Megan met when they were just 16 and 14 while at school, and they have been together ever since.
Blonde beauty Megan first hinted that the pair had got engaged when she flashed a diamond on her left hand while supporting her beau at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
In March, the pair finally tied the knot in a registry office in Crewe, Chesire and were accompanied by their beloved son Arlo, who they welcomed just over a year ago.
Cheryl and Ashley Cole – £275,000
Although their relationship ended in doom, once upon a time, Cheryl and Ashley Cole were showbiz’s dream couple.
The fiery lovebirds got engaged during a romantic holiday in Dubai in 2005.
Ashley, who had been dating the Girls Aloud starlet for eight months, took his future fiancée for a camel ride, before popping the question with a £275,000 ring.
He then toasted Cheryl’s answer with champagne and strawberries.
After their whirlwind engagement, WAG-to-be Cheryl told Mail Online that Ashley got down on one knee before asking for her hand in marriage.
“Ashley went down on one knee. He’s such a gentleman. It was all very romantic, and I still can’t quite believe it.”
Annie Kilner and Kyle Walker – £250,000
Kyle Walker reportedly proposed to his long-time on-off partner Annie Kilner with a £250,000 engagement ring that he helped design himself.
Manchester City and England star Walker pulled out all the stops to ensure the model would say yes – despite the fact he fathered a child with Lauryn Goodman in April.
After splashing out on a floral wonderland at their £6million home, the 30-year-old got down on one knee with the lavish sparkler and asked her to take him back for good, as Mirror Online exclusively revealed.
“Kyle went all out. It was extremely romantic. He designed the ring.
“He wanted it to be one of a kind.”
Coleen and Wayne Rooney – £250,000
Childhood sweethearts Coleen and Wayne first met in their native Croxteth, Liverpool when the future football star asked Ms McLoughlin on a date after offering to fix her bike on the street.
Wayne made his professional debut for Everton in 2002, aged 16, and he proposed to 17-year-old Coleen in a petrol station in 2003 with a four-carat, emerald-cut diamond ring.
The couple married at a lavish £5million ceremony on the Italian Riviera five years later in June 2008.
Since then, they have had their fair share of ups and downs, but have welcomed four beautiful boys ever since: Kai, ten, Klay, seven, Kit, four, and Cass, two.
Kate and Rio Ferdinand – £250,000
Rio asked Kate to be his wife in November 2018 with an eye-watering £250,000 sparkler.
The loved-up couple, who had been dating for almost two years, uploaded a photo on Instagram to announce their engagement joy.
“The perfect end to our holiday… how could the answer not be yes,” Kate wrote alongside a snap of herself being cuddled by her husband-to-be at the time.
Rio and Kate married at the stunning five-star luxury D Maris Bay hotel in Turkey in front of close friends and family, including Rio’s three children from his previous marriage.
Their pair are expecting their first child in autumn 2020.
Toni and John Terry – £250,000
English professional footballer and coach, John Terry gifted his darling girlfriend Toni with a dazzling diamond ring worth a whopping £250,000.
The couple tied the knot in a stunning ceremony at Blenheim Palace in 2007.
Speaking to the Sun about their relationship at the time, Toni said John was earning just £48 a week as a Chelsea apprentice when they first met.
“We hit it off straight away and I thought he was very nice. I had no idea he was a footballer to start with until I began seeing him on the TV.
“We started going out for dinners. I would always pay because he didn’t have much money. He would come and pick me up in his tiny, blue Citroën Saxo. It was a simple life,” she said.
Abby Clancy and Peter Crouch – £200,000
After appearing on Britain’s Next Top Model, in 2006, Abbey met footballer Peter Crouch at a friend’s party and the pair started dating.
By July 2009 the pair were engaged and later tied the knot in 2011.
Ever the traditionalist, Peter got down on one knee before asking Abby to be his wife with a £200,000 ring.
The happy couple share four children – Sophia Ruby, Liberty Rose, Johnny, and Jack.
Adriani Michael and Jack Wilshere – £180,000
England football star Jack Wilshere announced his engagement to Andriani Michael in 2016.
The 24-year-old popped the question to Andriani – the daughter of his barber – at her surprise 25th birthday and later confirmed the happy news on Instagram by captioning a sweet photograph of the pair, “Love you fiancée.”
The Chelsea midfielder tied the knot with Andriani during a three-day bash in Italy one year later.
Adriani and Jack now share three beautiful children together.
Katie Goodland and Harry Kane – £180,000
In July 2017, Harry Kane asked Katie to be his wife during a romantic getaway to the Bahamas.
The Spurs and England striker got down on one knee on a beach to ask the question – then revealed on Twitter that “she said yes!”
The couple had been together since they met in their school days, and were enjoying a family holiday with their bay daughter Ivy Jane at the time.
Katie and Harry have since welcomed their second daughter Vivienne in August 2018.
The pair married in the summer of 2019, with Kane announcing that he had married his “best friend”.
The Tottenham striker celebrated his joyous day by posting this message: “Finally got to marry my Best Friend! I love you.”
