Ring Rankings: Sthefany, Toni and Abigail

It goes without saying that we completely understand the (somewhat unhealthy) craving of owning a glam and blinding engagement ring from the footballing man of your dreams. Having a high cash value prize to sport on your finger is a lovely way to seperate yourself from those that have to work for a living or clean their own houses.
As we know, some marriages can go bad, but the engagement/apology rings are often very good.
Flicking through visuals of these WAGtastic rings has us feeling a bit like Goldilocks trying to find the perfect bed. Which one should we choose? Let’s investigate.
Sthefany Brito (Pato, Milan).
Thoughts on the first glimpse of the newlywed’s rock? (above). How about “holy moly mother of eye-blinding envy”? The inadequate zoom button ain’t doing the damn thing justice.
On the flip side, Sthef’s ring is so large, we’d be afraid to leave the house in fear of getting mugged. Then again, would we even be walking the streets? No. We’d be filming video for “Ripley’s Believe It Or Not” diamond special or napping in the back of our Rolls Royce after our 24k gold facial.
Toni Terry (John Terry, Chelsea)
Normally we’re fans of the bigger the better when it comes to size, but in cases such as disguising our manicures or scratching our adorable twins’ eyes out, we feel Toni Terry’s titanic-sized rock is a tad overdone.
We do like the shape, though, if it was taken down a couple of notches. Oh, who are we kidding: we want a ring large enough to require a finger assistant. No. We take it back; it’s just a wee bit too much. Soz, Toni.
Abigail Clancy (Peter Crouch, Tottenham)
Our choice? We prefer the pristine sparkler that Crouchie selected for his ladylove Abbey. It’s big without being obnoxious, and it appears her clarity outshines the competition.
Well done, chick. We bow to your third finger superiority.
