WHEN you’ve had EIGHT engagements and got married three times like Katie Price, it can only mean one thing – a VERY impressive collection of engagement rings.
The mum-of-five has sported some serious bling on her finger over the years, thought to be worth up to a cool £1million, but she hasn’t always been able to keep hold of them all.
Katie showed off her ring in a photo shared to both her and Carl’s Instagram last night with the caption: “I said yes.”
This follows her previous engagements to Kris Boyson, Kieran Hayler, Leandro Penna, Alex Reid, Peter Andre, Scott Sullivan and Warren Furman (known as Ace).
Here we take a look back at the other lavish rings Katie’s worn for each engagement, and the dramatic tale behind each one…
Kris Boyson’s £39K sparkler

In 2019, Kris Boyson popped the question with a £39,000 sparkler, and the former glamour model announced the happy news on Loose Women.
It came after just more than a year of dating on and off – with their furious rows all captured on camera for her reality show My Crazy Life.
Katie met fitness instructor Kris through former Love Island star Rykard Jenkins in early May 2018, but split up temporarily when she enjoyed a string of secret dates with minted businessman Alex Adderson later that year.
Kris and Katie never made it up the aisle, and Kris sold her engagement ring.

‘His and hers’ matching diamond bands
Katie and Kieran Hayler first tied the knot just two months after meeting in the Bahamas in January 2013, after Kieran proposed on Christmas Day with an emerald cut diamond engagement ring, valued at the time at the relatively ‘modest’ sum of £9,000.
Kieran also had a diamond studded wedding ring, and the pair – who share children Jett, six, and Bunny, five – went on to renew their vows in 2016.
The couple split for good in 2018 following a five-year marriage that was blighted by Kieran’s affairs.
Both Kieran and Katie have been engaged again since their split, with Kieran most recently proposing to his partner Michelle Penticost.

£15K heart-shaped ring returned to jeweller
In one of the less memorable engagements, Katie was betrothed to Argentinian male model Leandro Penna for six months in 2012, after the pair were introduced at Sir Elton John’s post-Oscars party.
After Leandro proposed in March 2012, Katie was pictured sporting a unique pink heart-shaped diamond encrusted design, thought to be worth around £15k.

However, the pair called off the engagement in October 2012.
After their split there was confusion over who actually purchased the ring, and Katie reportedly had to return the heart-shaped rock to the jeweller – because it hadn’t been paid for.
Leandro told the Daily Mirror: “The ring in question has never been in my possession. It was a ring Katie Price designed, ordered and had delivered directly to herself from her personal jeweller.

“After open dialogue between Katie’s and my own management an agreement was reached for Katie to voluntarily return the ring, ending the threat from her jeweller of civil court action.”
Katie’s spokesperson disagreed with this version of events, saying: “Katie found out that the ring had not been paid for by Leo and so has returned it rather than have the jeweller out of pocket and Leo pursued for the debt.”
The most ‘eye-catching and exuberant engagement ring’
When cage fighter Alex Reid got down on one knee in 2009 it seems the word ‘subtle’ wasn’t in the dictionary – with celebrity jeweller Vashi Dominguez describing the huge peach rock on a diamond-encrusted mount as the most “eye-catching and exuberant ring”.

The pair became an item just eight weeks after Katie’s split from first husband Peter Andre, and they married in Las Vegas in February 2010.
At the time the gigantic rock was valued at £25K, and is now thought to be worth almost double.
However, after their divorce just 11 months later, Katie returned the ring to her ex.
Three rings and at least £230K worth of bling

One of her most highly-publicised relationships, Katie’s well-documented love story with first husband Peter Andre began when they met on I’m A Celebrity! back in 2004.
Singer Peter, who shares children Princess and Junior with Katie, proposed in the same year, and the couple married in September 2005 in a lavish fairytale ceremony, before separating in 2009.
During their time together, Katie reportedly received three rings from Peter – she recently sold two which were collectively thought to be worth at least £230K.
It’s been reported she has saved the jewels from the first ring, to create a sentimental bangle to give to daughter Princess, saying: “When I’m older Princess will get the bracelet with the diamonds I married her dad with. It has not gone to waste.”
Some argue the collection is worth even more. Other more generous estimates suggest Katie’s rings from her marriage to Peter could even be worth up to £600,000 now.

Before heading into the I’m A Celebrity jungle, Katie was engaged to businessman Scott Sullivan in 2004.
However, Katie’s eye soon wandered after meeting Peter Andre on the show.
She was seen telling Peter that he was “not the one” for her.
Scott told The Sun at the time: “I don’t like what’s going on. I’m furious.”

First love – and a £3.5k sparkler
Gladiators star Ace, real name Warren Furman, was Katie’s first fiancé, after they became an item in 1996 when Katie was just 18 – just before the height of her page three ‘Jordan’ modelling fame, and before she’d even undergone her first boob job.
Nineties pin-up Warren proposed to her in 1997 with a £3.5K classic diamond ring, but their engagement was short-lived, and they split the following year.
It’s not known what happened to the ring, and it was rarely pictured at the time.

How Katie’s ring collection adds up
- Warren Furman: £3.5k, now valued at at least £6k
- Peter Andre – now worth up to £600,000 for one ring alone, with two others worth up to £150k and £80k
- Alex Reid: £25k, now valued at £42k
- Leandro Penna: £15k
- Kieran Hayler: £9k
- Kris: £39k
- TOTAL: £941,000
Speaking on This Morning, Warren – who at the height of his career earned £2k an hour- admitted fame played a huge role in their relationship, saying: “We both took our clothes off for a living and grew up with similar backgrounds. But we were both selling stories in the media.”
There’s no denying Katie has been lucky enough to sport a very impressive array of enviable diamonds – but with each one there’s been undeniable drama and heartache for Katie.
Fingers crossed the next one – both the ring and Carl – are keepers, and Katie finally gets the happily ever after she deserves.
