How much did Perrie Edwards' engagement ring cost from Zayn Malik?

Perrie Edwards' boyfriend in 2012 was Zayn Malik - or ZAYN as he's going by now. The couple got engaged in 2013, and despite splitting up in 2015, fans still want to know how much her engagement ring from him cost.

According to Engagement Ring Bible, the main diamond was '2.5 Carats, with a Pair of three-quarter Carats on either side'. They estimate that the ring cost £30,000.

If you didn't know, Perrie was supposedly dumped over text by ex-fiancé Zayn. The couple were together for four years and even had matching tattoos.

She spilled it all in the Little Mix book, Our World. "It was horrible, the worst time in my life," she says in the book, "A four-year relationship, two-year engagement ended by a simple text message. Just like that. Even though things in my career were going really well, it was incredibly difficult for me."

Zayn has since denied doing this, stating he has way too much respect for Perrie. However, it all resulted in the hit song 'Shout Out to My Ex' which went 2x Platinum in the UK and won Best British Single at the 2017 BRIT Awards. Read more interesting facts about Perrie Edwards here...
