Alison Hammond responds to engagement ring rumours

This Morning‘s Alison Hammond has responded to rumours that she is engaged following speculation over a ring she has been wearing.

On today’s (May 17) instalment of the ITV show, Alison was asked by co-host Dermot O’Leary and showbiz reporter Will Best during the showbiz news round-up section about the ring she was sporting on her wedding ring finger, and the gossip that has started to pop up surrounding it.

“You’ve been wearing it on the wrong finger,” Dermot pointed out, and she changed it to the other hand.

Alison explained that it was just a nice ring that she saw and liked, stating: “It’s just some cheap ring that I got from, probably Primark, one of those cheap rings. It’s nice, isn’t it?

“Let me swap it over, because we don’t want those rumours going out there, do you know what I mean? Not just yet. Maybe one day, who knows.”

Alison recently revealed that she is currently dating someone, but admitted that it can be harder for her now that her son Aiden is 19 years old, and unafraid of sharing his opinion on potential partners.

What women should know before buying Engagement Rings

Ah, yes – engagement ring shopping – it can be one of the most exciting moments in a woman’s life. You’ve shortlisted a few potential buys and now you’re ready to select the one that’s going to stay with you for lifelong.

While shopping for engagement rings for women can be full of excitement and adventure, it can also turn out to be time-consuming and even confusing, particularly if this is your first time. Before saying your “I do” on the big day, it’s always good to know these things when you go engagement ring shopping:

Budget myths are just that: Myths!

Is your heart set on a diamond engagement ring? Great, go for it! There’s no such thing as “this engagement ring is too expensive or too cheap for me”. If you like it, then that’s the one for you, whether it costs $1,000 or over $10,000.

While it’s entirely up to you how much you are comfortable spending on an engagement ring, you may want to reconsider your options if the ring in question might set you back by half a year’s salary.

Also, keep in mind that bespoke engagement rings tend to be significantly more expensive than ready-made ones, and when we talk about diamond engagement rings specifically, lab-grown ones tend to be more wallet-friendly.

In any case, spend as little or as much as you want, as long as the ring boasts quality, style and aesthetic you both will love.

Do a little research beforehand

You’ve likely heard of ‘the 4 Cs’ of diamond rings.

If your engagement ring has to be a diamond one, then you need to be aware of what this universal standard means. The 4 Cs essentially refer to cut, colour, clarity and carat Weight or size of the diamond. So,

(At the time, Todd was working as a line producer on the show). 

As we all know, that story had a happy ending: Kandi and Todd got engaged in 2013, were married in 2014, and have since had two kids together in addition to their two children from a previous relationships. 

Kandi wears a symbol of that love story on her finger in the form of a stunning engagement ring from Todd.

Kandi and Todd were engaged in January of 2013, and a stunning ring sealed the deal. According to Us Weekly, Kandi first spotted the ring in Las Vegas on a cast trip, and she called Todd to tell him about it. He then had the ring shipped from Vegas to Atlanta, and he carried it around for “three to four months” before officially popping the question. 

The ring that caught Kandi’s eye: a gorgeous white diamond sparkler by Gregg Ruth. The ring features a cluster of diamonds in the center in the shape of an oval, and the combined carat weight of the center stones is two carats. 

The ring also has a halo of diamonds, and its band is a triple shank outfitted with even more diamonds.

Kyle Richards’ Massive Cushion Cut Engagement Ring (PHOTOS)

There’s been a lot of chatter about Kyle Richards and her engagement and wedding rings.

For starters, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member sparked rumors about a potential separation from Mauricio Umansky when she was spotted without her wedding ring in February 2023. (We since learned that Kyle and Mauricio are separated.) 

Then, in Season 13 of RHOBH, a new ring on Kyle’s finger had the women wondering if it was a “make-up band” that resulted from cheating rumors. She denied that Mauricio had bought the new ring for her.

Most recently, she’s been spotted without the rings again.

Kyle Richards’ Engagement Ring and Wedding Band

Kyle’s engagement ring features a cushion-cut diamond in a split-shank pave halo setting, according to Glamour.

In addition to her engagement ring, Kyle also has a diamond wedding band, which Glamour reported is actually three bands together: a pair of plain diamond bands with a channel-set diamond band between them.

Prior to her split from Mauricio, she often wore the two rings together while out and on the red carpet. 

Kyle Richards was spotted without her rings prior to the separation news

During the November 1, 2023 episode of RHOBH, Mauricio’s mother, Estella, asked Kyle about rumored struggles in the longtime couple’s relationship after seeing several online reports. “Generally I don’t believe these things, but it’s too much,” Estella said. “Who started this?”

Kyle explained, “I was seen without my wedding ring, and people started the rumor.” In an interview, she noted she was “very taken aback” by her mother-in-law’s questions because that photo wasn’t a completely accurate representation of what was going on in her life at the time.  

“Yes, [Mauricio] and I have been having a hard time, but the picture of me without my ring has

Jennifer Aydin’s 9-Carat Engagement Ring Was an Upgrade

When Bravo fans first met Jennifer Aydin in Season 9 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, we quickly learned she had a strong appreciation for the finer things in life. That appreciation included a massive engagement ring and diamond wedding ring, which she wore on her left ring finger.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 14 premiere May 5th at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

Fast forward to Season 11, and Jennifer upgraded her marriage bling even further when her husband, Bill Aydin, gifted her a 9-carat canary yellow diamond for their 18th anniversary. 

That ring truly deserves a moment in the spotlight.

Why did Jennifer Aydin get a new, larger engagement ring from her husband Bill?

Jennifer and Bill celebrated their 18th anniversary with a lavish dinner at home in the company of three of their four children, which was shown in Season 11 Episode 13 of RHONJ in May 2021. During the dinner, Bill surprised Jennifer by upgrading her engagement ring with a jaw-dropping 9-carat canary yellow diamond ring.

Not only did the ring have a dazzling center stone, it was also surrounded by a diamond halo and a diamond-studded triple-shank.

“Small present,” Bill joked as he presented his wife with the gift. “Half a carat per year.”

“No f-cking way,” Jennifer gasped as her husband opened the ring box. “I’ve always wanted a yellow diamond.”

Jennifer Aydin’s Previous Engagement Ring

Jennifer’s previous engagement ring was nothing to sneeze at.

Before she got her yellow diamond ring, Jennifer wore a large, square-shaped diamond on her left finger. The main stone was also set in a diamond halo and had another diamond on each side. She paired it with a pave wedding ring with large

Scheana Shay’s Engagement Rings from Brock Davies, Mike Shay

Scheana Shay has gotten engaged and married twice on Vanderpump Rules:first to Mike Shay, whom she wed in 2014 and divorced in 2017; and now to Brock Davies, with whom she tied the knot in 2022 and shares daughter Summer Moon Honey Davies. 

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Bravo Tuesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app.  

Of course, there’s a lot of bling to go with those unions. Scheana has actually had three engagement rings — one from Shay (who goes by his last name) and two from Brock. 

Brock Davies proposed to Scheana Shay with a 12-carat pink morganite ring

In July of 2021, Brock popped the question with a massive 12-carat pink morganite engagement ring and Scheana, naturally, said “yes.”

The gorgeous engagement ring was crafted by the Vanderpump Rules cast’s go-to jeweler, Kyle Chan (whom you may recognize as Tom Sandoval’s friend Kyle from Season 11). 

On his feed at the time, Chan shared more details about the rectangular, cushion-cut ring. At 12.74 carats, the center stone is a rare pink morganite; the band is 14-karat white gold with diamonds.

“This gem also possesses a rare fancy pink reflect with insane fire,” Chan wrote. “Morganite is all about Divine Love. Pure and simple, it is representative of unconditional love.”

Why did Scheana Shay start wearing a diamond band before her wedding?

In January 2022, Scheana addressed fan questions about why she was wearing a diamond band next to her engagement ring before her August 2022 wedding. 

“For those wondering about my band, I had Kyle Chan Design make me a simple diamond band that I can wear every day because my [engagement] ring is a little too big to wear 24/7 but I always want

Chloe Grace Moretz, Kate Harrison Spark Engagement Rumors With Rings

Chloe Grace Moretz and Kate Harrison

Chloë Grace Moretz and girlfriend Kate Harrison sparked engagement rumors when they both wore rings on their left hands to Disneyland, with some fans wondering if they’re already married.

The two wore casual outfits, both donning jeans, baseball caps and sneakers, with the shiny accessories as they hit the Anaheim, California, park on Friday, April 26. Moretz, 27, seemed to have a thinner band behind another ring featuring a gold band with a large diamond at the center.

Moretz has been spotted wearing the same sparkler on several occasions now. The diamond ring and thin band first appeared when she attended a W Magazine event in Los Angeles on March 7, and the rings were seen again when she posed at the Shanghai Louis Vuitton show on April 18. While in Shanghai, Moretz modeled several different LV looks in a video for the fashion house — and the diamond ring and thinner band behind it stayed on her hand in each outfit.

Us Weekly has reached out to Moretz’s rep for comment.

Teresa Giudice’s Engagement Ring May Be Worth $1 Million [PICS]

Teresa Giudice takes a shine to the finer things in life — and her jewelry collection is no exception. Among The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member’s most precious baubles is her engagement ring from her husband, Luis “Louie” Ruelas. In October 2021, the diamond sparkler became hers after an epic proposal in Greece, and ever since, we’ve been excited for every glimpse we get of that hefty rock.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 14 premiere May 5th at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

Of course, this isn’t the first engagement ring we’ve seen on the mother of four’s finger. Before she married Louie in August 2020, she was married to Joe Giudice — and the ring she got from her first husband was no small stone.

Teresa Guidice’s Engagement Ring from Luis “Louie” Ruelas

On October 19, 2021 Louie (who had been dating Teresa since July 2020) popped the question while the couple was on vacation in Greece. Louie got down on bended knee on the beach, where the romantic decor included scattered rose petals, candles, and a giant sign that said Marry Me. In his hands: a dazzling ring with a gigantic oval stone, as well as a thick silver band that was studded with diamonds. 

At the time, Page Six consulted an expert jeweler who guessed the ring’s center stone was approximately eight carats, and the entire ring could be worth up to $300,000, depending on the quality of the diamond. Another jeweler estimated the ring was 10 carats and worth up to $1 million. 

At their wedding, she added a diamond band to the set.
