Engagement Ring Riddle: Irina Shayk’s Mystery Sparkler
Irina Shayk, Dolores Aveiro and Katia Dos Santos (not pictured) at the Intercontinental hotel in Madrid, Spain.
Irina Shayk’s made-for-our-left-hands golf ball-sized ring is playing tricks on us. We first laid eyes on it last week during Cristiano’s Golden Boot presentation, but by Sunday evening, it was noticeably absent during Irina’s walk down the European Music Awards red carpet.
The wooly mammoth of bling deserves a name. We think.
Anyway, the diamond Shayk was wearing earlier last weekend was made by Di Grisogno, the same brand that once paid ex-WAG Cheryl Cole a hefty sum to slap her name on a special capsule collection of their baubles. Knowing this, we can’t help but feel that Nereida’s recent showing was a fleeting occurrence – definitely not a permanent mainstay on Irina’s usually bare left hand.
That’s not to say, of course, we can outright deny the whispers we’ve heard re: these two becoming seriously involved, which started to surface after Cristiano began building his own hotel and golf course. Naturally, the property will bear his name once its completed later this summer. Ironically, July 2012 just so happens to be the date that’s being pegged for Irina and C-Ron’s supposedly impending nuptials.
Problem with this theory is that month is smack dab in the middle of the Euros 2012 in Poland. So unless Ronaldo and team Portugal fail to attend – which we can’t see happening – we’d again argue that Nereida is a publicity ploy surrounded by some nonsense. Wouldn’t be the first time, that’s for sure!
But really, your guesses on the validity of these rumours are as good as ours, dear readers. Anyone down for playing the wait-and-see game with us?
