Perrie Edwards’ engagement rings: Zayn Malik V Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Having announced her engagement to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain over the weekend, it looks like Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards has found her Prince Charming.

The Liverpool FC footballer proposed when the couple were standing in front of the sea at sunset during their recent holiday.

Though before Perrie met Alex, she was engaged to One Direction’s Zayn Malik and we couldn’t help ourselves when it came to comparing her engagement rings.

Taking a close look at photos of the rings, Steven Stone diamond expert, Zack Stone has revealed everything you need to know.

Alex and Perrie have been dating since 2016 and welcomed their first child – a baby they named Axel – in August 2021.

Perrie has spoken about marrying Alex as far back as 2020 when she appeared on radio show Capital Breakfast, telling Roman Kemp that the couple didn’t want to rush into it.

Featuring a 6 carat oval diamond, Perrie’s ring from Alex boasts the most popular shape for celebrity engagement rings in 2021 and sees her join an array of celebrities that sport the shape – including Kourtney Kardashian, Nicola Peltz and Blake Lively. The shape is said to symbolise eternal love, fertility and immortality.

“Featuring what looks to be a 6ct oval diamond, Perrie’s ring is sensational. Accentuating the size of the centre stone, the thin yellow gold band makes it look even more impressive.

Perrie’s in good company with an oval stone engagement ring as they were the most popular shape for celebrity engagement rings in 2021 – though Blake Lively and Kate Middleton both sport the shape, it was Kourtney Kardashian who reignited the trend and with 12,000 people searching for it each month, it’s not a trend that’s going away anytime soon.

A ring like Perrie’s would have an estimated value of £100,000 ($122,000).”

Back in 2011, Perrie began dating One Direction member Zayn Malik. Zayn popped the question two years later and the couple were together for another two years before he called off their engagement, shortly after announcing that he was leaving One Direction.

Perrie landed a gorgeous four claw trilogy engagement ring from Zayn that features round brilliant cut diamonds – a cut that reflects light both internally and externally, which creates a beautiful and impressive sparkle.

Representing over two thirds of all diamonds sold, round cut diamonds are traditionally the first and most popular diamond that’s given as a symbol of commitment – Gossip Girl star Jessica Szohr’s recently got engaged to NHL star Brad Richardson with a huge round brilliant diamond.

Perrie’s ring from Zayn features three round brilliant cut diamonds – the main stone looks to be 1.5 carats, whilst the side stones total 0.5 carats.

Round brilliant cut diamonds are always an excellent choice as they enhance the gem’s sparkle – they’re also the most expensive diamond shape and the only one that the GIA grades for cut.

The showstopper is a four claw engagement ring, meaning that four prongs extend up from the band to securely hold the centre diamond, offering a stylish and modern look.

With all of this in mind, I’d estimate the rings value to be around £25,000 ($30,000).”
