Maya Jama shows off huge ‘£700k engagement ring’ as she steps out with new fiancé Ben Simmons

Maya Jama has confirmed her engagement to basketball player Ben Simmons by stepping out with a huge diamond ring thought to be worth an incredible £700,000.

Maya, 27, and Ben, 25, got engaged over the festive period and have now been spotted enjoying a coffee date in Philadelphia.

Revealing how much the ring is worth, an expert at H&T told OK!: "The engagement ring appears to be a large Emerald cut Diamond of good colour possibly G or H with a fancy cut and the Diamond shoulders are trapeze cut. It is clearly mounted and set in either white gold and platinum.

"The large Emerald cut centre stone is most likely between 8 to 10 Carats in weight; it would have a retail valuation of £700,000 to £800,000."

Lorna Haddon, head of diamonds and jewellery at Beaverbrooks, added that the rock is "a sparkling statement of devotion".

She said: "With its bold and eye-catching design, Maya’s ring is every bit as sophisticated and glamorous as the British TV presenter and DJ, and the perfect piece to mark the couple’s engagement."

The stunning power couple only confirmed their relationship at Wimbledon last year, with Maya kissing the NBA player in the stands as they attended a match at the annual event.

Maya previously dated Brit Award-winning rapper Stormzy for four years on and off, before they called it a day for good at the end of 2019.

Ben also has a mega famous ex, as he previously dated Kendall Jenner. Their relationship ended in 2020.

It's no surprise Ben can afford such an impressive ring as the Melbourne born has been playing professional basketball since 2016 and has an estimated net worth of $6million.
