As per rumours, the ring even contains some esoteric codes which are only understandable by the couple.
Even though supermodel Heidi Klum separated with her famous singer husband Seal in 2012, back in 2004 when the man proposed his lady with a 10-carat fancy yellow diamond ring, their marriage sparked Tinseltown-talk.

The three-stone ruby gemstone engagement ring has gained a lot of fame and continues to be one of the favorite picks of celebrity engagement rings.
The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, is a proud possessor of a stunning 18-carat oval blue sapphire ring surrounded by 14 scintillating diamonds.
