Taken by surprise, model and influencer Emma couldn’t stop gushing about her husband-to-be, and was in love with the ring he designed for her. Yes, that’s right, Proudlock helped design the ring and used a diamond from his grandmother’s ring. Teaming up with Vow Jewellery, the former Made in Chelsea star worked on the bespoke engagement ring, making sure the white and black diamond art deco ring was perfect for his bride-to-be.
