We obtained an exclusive valuation from Mike Fried, CEO of The Diamond Pro. He said: "I would put the value at $100k [approx £70,000]," and added: "It's nice to see a celebrity go the vintage route."

The antique piece of jewellery is over 100 years old, making it very different from the brand new diamonds we often see A-listers sporting.

"Anyway, I think he was getting bored of it and then he proposed. It was quite romantic for some reason." However, Ellie actually asked her boyfriend to pop the question a second time after he didn’t get down on one knee during the impromptu proposal.

Their gorgeous wedding day in York took place on a beautifully sunny day, and it was a star-studded affair attended by many celebrities and even royals.  The exclusive guestlist included Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, Sarah Ferguson, Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom.

The bride wowed in a bespoke Chloé gown, and its unique high-neck design was another example of how Ellie likes to stand out from the crowd.
