The American fashion designer, 41, took to Instagram to share a series of loved-up photos with his new fiancé, ballet dancer Harrison Ball, and he showed off his very modern ring in the process. "Engaged [ring emoji] 8.8.22 @__harrisonball__," he wrote in the caption. The last snap showed a close-up of his left hand, where a platinum band reportedly worth around £5,000 (£4.1k) could be seen on his ring finger.

Jenny Luker, president of Platinum Guild International USA, explained: "Zac's platinum engagement ring is a great combination of a classic high polished band and black diamonds or onyx that are channel set into the center of the band, which adds a very modern and striking touch.

"As the ring appears to be platinum, it will maintain its natural white color and shape, making it an heirloom for generations to come! I would estimate this ring costs approximately $5,000."

Zac designed Princess Eugenie's blush pink wedding dress

Although the options include pavé bands with white or yellow gold, none of them appear to be similar to Zac's ring. However, if you're inspired by his unique band, you can get the same high-shine platinum style for £1,222, or a similar platinum ring with black diamonds for £1,950.
