Liam Payne got engaged to girlfriend Maya Henry with an incredible £3million ring – here’s everything you need to know about the sparkler.
Liam apparently proposed with a “remodelled” version of a “cherished” ring Maya received from her grandmother.
According to the tabloids, the 27-year-old was “determined to make it the perfect proposal so instead of shelling out a fortune on a ring that didn’t mean anything, he proposed using one which is cherished in her family.”
The source added: “It meant so much to Maya and she was over the moon it’s been remodelled for her and is extremely special.”
The ‘Strip That Down’ singer apparently asked Maya to marry him during lockdown, meaning news of their engagement stayed under wraps for quite some time.
But after they were seen out in London, Maya’s engagement ring took centre stage.
The huge diamond is in a league of its own, sitting within a silver band and covering almost the entire bottom half of the 20-year-old’s finger.
The ring appears to be an emerald cut, but given its hefty price tag we wouldn’t be surprised if it was a creation of Liam’s own.
Maya reportedly spent the evening proudly showing off the ring to their friends when they were pictured in London on 27 August.
And in the paparazzi photos from the night, the ring is glistening under the camera lights.
When the news of the couple’s engagement broke online, Twitter users had stunned reactions to the ring’s price tag.
“Liam Payne got engaged to his partner with a 3 MILLION RING that is ridiculous,” one person wrote.
Another joked: “‘You Changed’ bro Liam Payne bought a 3 million dollar ring for his girlfriend.”
