Gemma Atkinson, 36, flashed her new engagement ring on Instagram as the couple announced their engagement on February 14. The radio host could be seen placing a kiss on her new husband-to-be Gorka Marquez, 30, as she rested her left hand on his shoulder. The couple met on Strictly Come Dancing in 2017, when he danced with Alexandra Burke and she was partnered up with Aljaz Skorjanec.
Bespoke engagement ring specialists Taylor & Hart has taken a closer look at the mother-of-one’s engagement ring and shared details about its value.
Design director Kate Earlam-Charnley told Express.co.uk: “I estimate Gemma’s ring to feature a 1.50ct centre oval diamond set in platinum.
“The band is likely 1.6mm wide, with fishtail pavé diamonds to half eternity and non-cathedral shoulders setting the piece’s worth at an estimated £11,900.
“The delicate band makes for super comfortable wearing whilst also bringing the focus to the centre diamond.
“Oval diamonds are a very elegant shape and optically elongate the fingers.

“These features combined make the Dulcet ring design one of Taylor & Hart’s most sought-after designs, especially when ladies choose a design for themselves.“
The pair got engaged exactly three years after they confirmed they were dating back in 2018.
Announcing their engagement news yesterday, Gemma wrote on Instagram: “Valentine’s forever… Of course I said yes.”
Tonight, Strictly pro Gorka shared footage of their walk together before he popped the question.
His wife-to-be could be seen playing with her dogs and smiling for the camera as he filmed.
The couple welcomed their first baby together in 2019; a daughter named Mia.
In December, Gemma said her mum warned her not to have anymore children just yet.
Speaking on Steph’s Packed Lunch, she said: “My mum’s already said to me, Mia’s too young yet, no more siblings, wait until she’s older.
“She’s given me the warning!”
