Get ready to pop the champagne as Maya Jama is reportedly engaged to Ben Simmons
The news is out that the 25-year-old basketball player supposedly popped the question during Christmas, asking Maya, 27, to tie the knot. Now, in recent snaps from the Daily Mail, the star has been spotted with a huge engagement ring on her finger.
The images show Maya and Ben walking to the gym in Philadelphia, revealing a stunning sparkler which undeniably takes the limelight.
Here at Steven Stone, we love celebrity engagement rings and couldn’t wait to get a close look at the ring in question. To reveal everything you need to know, managing director, Zack Stone, analysed the images – and was blown away by the size of the stone.
He said: “Maya Jama’s ring is sensational. From the images it looks to be an emerald cut diamond set on a white gold or platinum band. The centre stone is around 10 carats, which is huge, and will no doubt be of the highest quality. With this in mind, it could be worth around £500,000 ($695,000) on today’s market.”
“Emerald cut stones have been a popular choice from celebrities in the last 12 months, with Paris Hilton, Porsha Williams, and Bethenny Frankel all opting for this style in 2021.
Paris Hilton’s emerald cut ring is a whopping 20cts and has an estimated value of $2,000,000. Porsha Williams is 15cts and worth around $1,250,000, whilst Bethenny Frankel’s 10ct solitaire ring is worth a staggering $1,000,000.”
According to recent reports from The Sun, a source told them:
“Ben adores Maya and has fallen head over heels for her. He picked up the ring on Jewelers’ Row in the diamond district of Philadelphia the day before he proposed. He chose the ring himself and felt he knew exactly what she would want. Maya said yes and they’re both thrilled.”
The insider added, “Ben was so excited, but they’ve decided to keep the news low-key and tell only those closest to them.”
The couple are yet to comment on the engagement, nor have they made a social media announcement. However, we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled on Instagram this week.
Maya and Ben officially marked their relationship at Wimbledon in 2021, however rumours of their relationship had sparked back in 2019.
Before Ben, Maya most famously dated rapper, Stormzy, for four years. However, the pair split after cheating allegations were made against him, which he has since denied.
On his album, Heavy is the Head, some song lyrics suggest the rapper still mourns the loss of his ex. In the song ‘Lessons’, he says: “Now my nephews still asking for their auntie Maya, I guess this is karma for what i done to Maya’
