Rita Ora returned to the stage on Saturday night with a show-stopping performance at London’s Heaven nightclub.
The singer treated the crowd to an intimate performance of her new single ‘You Only Love Me’ as well as a collection of her past hits.
Rita, who is also a judge on ITV ‘s ‘The Masked Singer’, wowed fans in a one-shoulder latex gown, paired with a latex thong and star-shaped pasties – though it was the chunky jewellery that adorned her fingers that caught our eye.
During the performance, Rita was wearing three chunky rings on her left hand that we couldn’t take our eyes off.
The most valuable ring that Rita was sporting boasts a 3 carat oval cut fancy intense yellow diamond in a halo setting. Fancy yellow diamonds are graded according to the hue of yellow color within the stones, making it highly likely that Rita carries a high price tag. Taking this into account, our experts estimate it to be worth $150,000.
The sparker on Rita’s middle finger features a 2.5 carat Asscher cut blue sapphire, which is also in a halo setting. Resembling the Art Deco era of the 1920s and 1930s, Asscher cuts are a vintage style diamond cut that look similar to the emerald cut, but have a square shape instead of rectangular. Our experts estimate the bold piece to be worth $75,000.
Rita’s third ring is slightly more modest as it doesn’t have a central stone. Instead, the elegant piece appears to be a platinum eternity ring that’s wholly covered in diamonds. Celebrity eternity rings like this tend to carry a value of around $20,000.
Does Rita wear a wedding ring?
After months of rumours, Rita very recently confirmed that her and Taika Waititi are married, with her describing their nuptials as perfect.
Rumours that the showbiz couple had said “I do” in an intimate ceremony in London originated in August 2022, when Rita shared a photo drop from a getaway in Paris to her Instagram, in which she was flashing a gold wedding band on her ring finger.
During the same time period, Taika had also been seen sporting gold jewellery on his ring finger in an Instagram snap shared by Rita’s sister, Elena. Rita uploaded the same shot to her Instagram, but the singer tellingly covered Taika’s hand with her caption.
Our leading diamond expert, Zack Stone, commented the following at the time: “We love nothing more than seeing celebrity engagement and wedding rings, so after months of rumours that Taika and Rita were due to be wed, we’re ecstatic that they’ve tied the knot and we can have a good look at what’s on their ring fingers!
The showbiz couple have opted for matching plain yellow gold chunky wedding bands. Gold is the most popular wedding ring and engagement ring metal. Representing eternal love and promise, it’s always a sentimental choice.
With an estimated value of £700, Rita’s wedding band is likely to be an 18 carat 4mm heavy weight wedding ring. Taika’s looks to be 5mm and is worth the higher price of £1000.”
