The real gem, though, is the stunning 2.70 carat cabochon yellow sapphire on top.

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we thought it was the perfect time to bring this brand-new design to life.

It’s been called the “ultimate proposal ring for your childhood sweetheart” and it costs £25,000.

The jeweller also worked out that you could buy more than 12,000 Haribo rings for the price of it!

‘The perfect expression of love

Taylor & Hart’s Kate Earlam-Charnley said: “With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we thought it was the perfect time to bring this brand-new design to life.

“Combining custom-cut rubies and a syrupy cabochon yellow sapphire, this ring is one of the most ambitious we’ve ever created and definitely one of the most original.”

She added: “Made for the daydreamers, the hopeless romantics, those in search of something a little more pure and innocent, this ring is the perfect expression of love.”
