Simon Cowell is well-known for being one of the most severe and unforgiving judges on talent programs. He’s a record executive, TV personality, and entrepreneur who’s also utilized his platform to help others over the years, participating in humanitarian efforts. Some of Cowell’s most popular shows include “The X Factor,” “Britain’s Got Talent,” “America’s Got Talent,” and “American Idol.”
Growing up, Cowell was surrounded by musical influences, so it’s no surprise that he went into the entertainment sector with a strong focus on music. Many musical artists and bands, like Leona Lewis, One Direction, and Little Mix, got their big break on his competition shows, and he helped start their careers. The music mogul has worked on the production side of several musical releases as well as the business side of his own entertainment organization, Syco Entertainment.
Cowell spends time with his family, which consists of his son, Eric, and his long-term companion, Lauren Silverman, when he is not busy evaluating others on television or working with various musical talents. The couple has been together for nearly a decade and recently got engaged in Barbados with Eric and Silverman’s eldest son, Adam, on Christmas Eve 2021.
Silverman’s ring is exceptionally gorgeous and quite valuable. Her diamond ring, in fact, is estimated to be worth up to $3.4 million. In late January 2022, Silverman flaunted her stunning new piece of jewelry while out and about with her current fiancé.
Despite the fact that Cowell and Silverman are now perceived in a positive way, their relationship began with scandal, resulting in extensive media attention and negative press. However, the couple persevered and are now happier than ever, as PEOPLE reported on Dec. 24, 2021, they were engaged.
Silverman was “extremely surprised” by the proposal, according to the Daily Mail, because she had not expected Cowell to ask her to marry him. “Lauren has been Simon’s rock over the last few years,” a source told the Daily Mail, “supporting him when he fractured his back and through thick and thin in general.” “They form an excellent couple.”
Silverman and Cowell have been dating for nearly a decade, having met while Silverman was still married to multimillionaire property developer Andrew Silverman. In July 2013, the affair and the news that Silverman was pregnant with Cowell’s child became public.
While their relationship may not have started off well, it is evident that the couple genuinely loves each other and is excited to take the next step in their relationship. According to the Daily Mail, Cowell used to think marriage was “boring,” but after Silverman persuaded him to fully commit to her and their family during the lockdown, he changed his attitude and decided to “prioritize the moment.”
“While Simon never thought he was the marrying type,” a source told the tabloid, “he’s realized he’s met the woman of his dreams — and couldn’t be happier.” It was time to “put a ring on it,” as Beyoncé put it.
Cowell did exactly that, purchasing a stunning ring for millions of dollars for Silverman. According to the Daily Mail, Silverman was seen exiting “Britain’s Got Talent” tryouts with Cowell in January 2022, displaying her dazzling new engagement ring in the process. Silverman donned a white crop top with khakis as the duo exited The London Palladium.
A peach wool coat, nude heels, a snakeskin handbag, and, of course, her new diamond ring completed the ensemble.
Simon has a net worth of $600 million, according to the Daily Mail, and it appears that he put it to good use when selecting his fiancée’s engagement ring. Silverman’s ring is valued at $3.4 million.
Alexandra Michell, a gemologist, told the Daily Mail:
“I’d say this ring is a 15ct oval cut diamond with a color D and internal flawlessness… the highest grade available.” The retail value, in my opinion, is $3.4 million (£2.5 million). This is a very classic form, with a single stone set on a white gold or platinum band to highlight the star of the show — the diamond.”
Other jewelry experts feel the diamond is worth less than Michelle’s estimate, estimating that it is most likely worth $2.5 million. Steven Stone’s managing director, Zack Stone, said:
“Lauren’s ring appears to be oval in shape, which was the most popular celebrity ring shape in 2021.” The main diamond is massive, weighing in at around 20 carats. It appears to be D color, which means it’s a very valuable stone.”
