Myleene Klass reveals huge black engagement ring after fiancé Simon Motson proposed with 'promise ring'
MYLEENE Klass has shown off her stunning black diamond after getting engaged to long term partner Simon Motson.
The 42-year-old radio host designed the jaw dropping emerald cut ring alongside Simon and chose the unusual stone because "black goes with everything".
Myleene and PR executive Simon, 46, got engaged earlier this month on their five year anniversary as a couple.
Initially, Simon gave Myleene a gold and diamond "promise ring" until she had settled her ultimate engagement ring.
The singer let her fans in on the behind the scenes action of her designing the ring and getting it made.
She posted multiple videos and photos of the process, also answering fan questions about the dazzling rock.
"I made a video on design through to make of our engagement ring," she wrote on the Instagram post.
"Everything it stands for is magical to me."
The mum-of-two then went into more detail on her Instagram stories, which delighted her 370,000 followers who inundated her with questions.
She opened up about why she chose a black diamond saying, "after Sim proposed I got it into my head that I wanted a coloured diamond for my ring."
The couple then decided to go for a naturally coloured black ring – as opposed to a synthetically coloured stone.
"I had no idea where to source a rare, black diamond."
So, the happy couple turned to actress Ira Kormind who led her to the 77 Diamonds company.
Myleene revealed they "absolutely LOVED the design process of drawing and shaping our own unique ring."
They drew sketches of rings for her to try on her hand because lockdown prevented them from going into the workshop to try them in real life.
The different sketches show they had settled on the emerald cut, but experimented with the band and frame around the diamond.
They settled for round shaped diamonds to go around the main stone and also along the band.
Myleene – who was recently announced on the line-up of Dancing on Ice – admitted she was head over heels with her engagement ring.
"I spend most of my day just staring at this around my finger," she admitted.
"I love everything it stands for, what it means for us to have made it together, what it took to get here in the first place and ultimately, because it's unique, super rare and was made with friendship and love."
She then put together a video showing the entire process of making the ring while Elvis Presley's unchained melody played over it.
Her daughter Ava chose the song after learning of the engagement after hearing it on the hit film, Crazy Rich Asians.
When a fan asked why she designed the ring with Simon, Myleene explained he's a "great designer".
"He works in design and production and some of my work is also in design and branding too, so making it together seemed like a really lovely idea."
She also told fans the reason she chose a black diamond was because she "discovered it's one of the toughest forms of natural diamond".
Myleene and Simon have baby son Apollo, one, and two children each from previous relationships.
Myleene was previously married to Graham Quinn, but he famously walked away from the marriage after just six months and they were divorced in 2013.
