Married at First Sight breakout star Martha Kalifatidis has revealed the eye-watering price of the engagement ring given to her by Michael Brunelli.
In early December, the reality TV favourites announced on Instagram that they’d become engaged following months of talk about future nuptials.
The pair met during the sixth season of Married at First Sight in 2019 after meeting at the altar for the very first time.
On Wednesday, Martha appeared on KIIS FM’s Will & Woody show to discuss her unique emerald ring with host Will McMahon and Woody Whitelaw.
While the radio hosts speculated how much the bling cost in a game of “higher or lower”, Martha failed to reveal the exact price of the jewel.
She did admit, however, that her engagement ring set her fiancé back “close to” $100,000!
Opening up further, the 33-year-old said she tried to postpone the proposal when she realised she wasn’t as glammed up as she’d liked to be.
“I started saying, “No, please don’t do it! Don’t do it. I look disgusting. Don’t do it’,” Martha recalled.
Despite Michael insisting that she wasn’t aware of what he was going to do, the glamourous bride continued to beg her partner to hold off popping the question.
“I’m like… This is not the outfit! And then we just did it anyways, obviously. [sic].”
The Sydneysider added: “The timing was bad because literally it was the day after Michael and I moved into our apartment. I had no shampoo, I had no makeup, everything was in boxes.”
What Else Do We Know ABout Martha Kalifatidis’ Engagement Ring?
Martha previously disclosed that she hasn’t been fussed on engagement rings in the past, however, after the pair announced their engagement on December 6, it was obvious that she was smitten with her own unique jewel.
Non-traditional like its owner, the white emerald sits lengthways on the band rather than upright.
“Normally the emerald faces vertically but looks like we have trend setter over here [sic],” the jeweller captioned a stunning close-up video of the engagement ring.
Taking to the comments, both Michael, Martha and her iconic mum, Big Brother Australia’s Mary Kalifatidis, commented on the sparkler.
“Beautiful, something different,” Mary said, while Michael quipped: “You nailed the brief.”
The owner of the engagement ring was equally as thrilled.
“I didn’t like engagement rings… until I saw this. I love it so much, thank you Arman (baba). ”
