Emily Ratajkowski has a habit of sending the entire internet into meltdown.

The 32-year-old never shies away from making a statement, be that in sheer dresses, a new hairdo and no trousers or championing the itsy bitsy bikini trend.

This time she turned heads with an Instagram post flaunting her 'divorce rings' and fans can't get enough.

Emily shared a post with her 30m followers, taking the 'naked dressing' trend to, erm, literal heights. In her selfie, she held her hand up to the camera and showcased two rings boasting show-stopping diamonds, calling them "divorce rings" in the caption.

It appears that she may have had the engagement ring given to her by ex-husband Sebastian Bear-McClard deconstructed and remade into two truly remarkable diamond rings with gold bands. Her original ring featured a pear-shaped and a princess cut diamond, and her new rings boast the same pear-shaped cut and another with two extra diamonds fixed around a princess cut.

She's received a wave of support in the comments section - mostly from fans dropping the word 'iconic', but notable names include Jodie Turner-Smith saying "yesssssssss [heart emojis]", and Elsa Hosk, Irina Shayk and Sofia Tilbury leaving a wave of fire emojis.

Zack Stone, Managing Director at Steven Stone told Hello! Fashion: “When the couple got engaged in 2018, we estimated the model's sparkler to be worth $80,000 (£63,000). Classic with a modern, unconventional twist, the toi et moi ring featured a 2ct princess cut diamond and 3ct pear shaped diamond, sat on a yellow gold band."

Her new ring designs, however, appear to have added value: "For her first ring, Emily’s princess cut diamond has been flanked by two trapezoid-shaped stones, transforming it into a three-stone ring," Zack says, "This is an interesting choice as three stone rings tend to represent a couples past, present and future. A modern perspective on the setting regards the three stones as symbolising friendship, love, and fidelity - a reflection more fitting to Emily's circumstances considering the grounds for her divorce. I’d estimate this ring to be worth $50,000 (£40,000)."

 "The second ring boasts what appears to be Emily’s original pear-cut diamond in a solitaire setting, sat on a yellow gold band. The unique and unmistakable shape of pear cut stones symbolises empowerment, individuality and independence – making this a poignant accessory for Emily as she moves forward with her life. I’d estimate it to be worth $80,000 (£63,000)."

Emily married Sebastian on February 23, 2018 after only a few weeks dating, and filed for divorce around July 2022 after rumours of infidelity. She revealed "I feel all the emotions," in an interview with Harper's Bazaar. "I feel anger, sadness. I feel excitement. I feel joy. I feel levity. Every day is different. The only good thing I know is that I’m feeling all those things, which is nice because it makes me believe that I’ll be okay."

She singlehandedly just made 'divorce rings' a thing, and we're expecting to see a wave of break-up jewellery in 2024...
