We asked the jewellery experts Est1897 for an exclusive valuation, and the amazing sparkler is thought to be worth over £40,000! Which is £9,200 more than the average UK salary which sits at £30,800. 

It features an emerald-coloured stone which is in fact tourmaline, a stone thought to bring healing and balance to its owner. As analysed by the team at Est1897, the cluster ring also has rose gold mounted diamonds around the edge for a more feminine touch.
