Cristiano Ronaldo tops footballers’ engagement ring league with £615,000 sparkler for fiancée

Cristiano Ronaldo is sure one of most popular sportsmen in the modern era and his fan following is a testament to that.

And his bank balance also one of the fattest as the football superstar endorses multiple international brands, despite having his own.

The Portuguese international recently gave his long-time Georgina Rodriguez the engagement ring during a holiday in the French Riviera last month. 

From cheering for Ronaldo during the World Cup in Russia to taking care of his kids, Georgina has been with Ronaldo for a good part of his career and fans are elated to see them take it to the next level.

To make it public, Georgina Rodriguez was recently pictured with the glittering ring on her finger during one of Portugal's match.

As per reports, the 35-year old Juventus hitman splashed about £615,000 on the diamond ring for Georgina.

Georgina fuelled speculation Cristiano had bought her the engagement ring by commenting on this Instagram post.

Georgina, a Gucci shop assistant-turned-model posted four heart-eyes emojis in response to a snap of the ring Ronaldo is rumoured to have bought her.

According to GamblingDeals, who compiled a list of the most expensive engagement rings in football, England keeper Jordan Pickford was second on £500,000 for wife Megan Davison.

Ashley Cole’s £275,000 ring for ex-wife Cheryl ranked third.

But England ace Harry Kane was just tenth with £180,000 for wife Katie Goodland, according to jeweller Roseanna Croft.

Georgina and Ronaldo have two-year-old daughter Alana together and are raising his other three children - surrogate twins Eva and Mateo, three, and ten-year-old Cristiano Jr.

The couple first enjoyed on a string of dates towards the end of 2016. Ronaldo is thought to have asked the Spanish beauty to marry him in 2018.

The former Manchester United forward, who donated huge sums of money to help medical supplies during the coronavirus crisis, has always insisted they will wed.

Telling Piers Morgan of the couple's "true love" on ITV last year, he added: "She helped me so much. Of course, I’m in love with her.

"We’ll be [married] one day, for sure. It’s my mum’s dream as well."

Ronaldo scored his 100th international goal for Portugal in the UEFA Nations League against Sweden, becoming only the second player in the history of the game to do so.
