Simon proposed with a promise ring, so the couple could design the special engagement ring together. Myleene and Simon enlisted the help of Ira Kormind at 77 Diamonds in Mayfair, who sourced the rare 7.6-carat emerald-cut black diamond from Hong Kong.

Myleene took to social media to reveal the exact process of designing and crafting her dream ring. Her collection of images and videos showed close ups of the huge emerald-shaped diamond and its sparkling halo of diamonds.
