How to take care of your diamond engagement ring After Cheryl Cole and Jean-Bernard's whirlwind romance, it seems the luxury restaurant and nightclub owner has pulled out all the stops and improved on Cheryl's previous rings, presented to her by her ex-husband Ashley Cole, said Vashi. Footballer Ashley proposed with a yellow, heart-shaped diamond engagement ring worth around £150,000, said Vashi, and then followed it up with another consolation rock after reports emerged that he had been unfaithful. "After the cheating scandal, Ashley attempted to 'wow' her back and bought her a huge six-carat princess cut diamond ring, with a complementing dazzling yellow diamond halo setting," said the jeweller. "This set him back £160,000."
