Kyle Sandilands engaged: Price of Tegan Kynaston’s huge diamond ring

Kyle Sandilands surprised his partner Tegan Kynaston with an extravagant marriage proposal earlier this month, hiring a venue and arranging for fireworks, candles and a lavish meal before popping the question.

So it’s no wonder the radio king, 50, went all-out when it came to selecting a huge diamond ring for his queen.

Photos surfaced over the weekend of Tegan flashing her engagement ring, and a leading jeweller believes Kyle would’ve spent at least a million dollars on the design.

Tobias Kormind, managing director of Europe’s largest online diamond jeweller 77 Diamonds, told Daily Mail Australia: ‘Tegan’s ring looks like a 10-carat emerald-cut diamond set on a split shank platinum band.’

‘[It would be] worth over $1.14million for a decent quality diamond, at least F colour, VS1 clarity,’ he added.

Mr Kormind, who did not make Tegan’s ring but has studied photos of the design, noted that a key feature of the ring is the split shank, which is a style featuring a band that separates as it reaches the centre setting.

‘Split shank rings are relatively unusual and Beyoncé is one of the few other celebrities to sport a split shank ring, but [Beyoncé’s] is an 18-carat emerald-cut diamond,’ he said.

‘Split shanks rings are very elegant and actually are more secure,’ Mr Kormind added.

Kyle would’ve had no trouble splashing out on Tegan’s ring, given he recently valued his business empire at about $100million.

It comes after Kyle opened up about his extravagant proposal on his first day back on The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Monday.

Kyle explained he’d hired a venue and arranged for fireworks, candles and a lavish meal before getting down on one knee – but admitted not everything went to plan. 

The shock jock had organised for singer-songwriter Conrad Sewell to fly in from overseas and perform the couple’s favourite song for their proposal.

‘But two days before the proposal, Conrad rang me and he was very upset because he had caught Covid,’ the KIIS FM host said.

‘I couldn’t postpone it because there were chefs, fireworks and I had hired a venue.’

Kyle decided to go ahead with the proposal without live music and told Tegan, 35, they were going to a pop-up art show.

‘When we got there, we got out, I swung the door open and they played the Conrad song. There were candles and soft lighting,’ he said.

Then, surrounded by candles and their friends, Kyle got down on one knee and asked Tegan to marry him.

He presented his girlfriend with a large oval diamond ring.

After she said yes, they had a romantic dinner together with Australian ingredients including crocodile, kangaroo and dried fig kafta.

To end the night, the newly engaged couple watched a fireworks display with their friends.

Tegan and Kyle touched down in Sydney on Saturday following their romantic getaway in the Sunshine State.

Tegan is director of communications for Sandilands’ company King Kyle Pty Ltd.

They went public with their romance on New Year’s Eve in 2019, when Tegan shared a picture of herself kissing Kyle in front of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Two months earlier, she had denied rumours she was dating the KIIS FM presenter.

Kyle began dating Tegan after his split from long-term girlfriend Imogen Anthony.

The radio titan announced his break-up with Imogen after eight years together live on The Kyle and Jackie O Show in November 2019.

He told listeners the pair ‘haven’t been living with each other’ for months and their relationship had simply ‘run its course’.

‘We haven’t been with each other for quite a few months now. Unfortunately it’s run its course,’ he said.

Kyle revealed earlier this month he hadn’t ruled out having children with Tegan. 

‘It is definitely not off the cards,’ he told The Daily Telegraph

‘It has never really been on my priority list and I think that is just because I was that kid that dragged around my childhood issues from my parents’ divorce and this and that.’

He admitted he wasn’t always interested in having children, but came around to the idea after spending time with other parents, including John Ibrahim and his partner Sarah Budge.

The KIIS 106.5 radio star also recently confirmed he had been given the ‘all-clear’ after undergoing fertility testing.

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia last month, Kyle said: ‘I was really nervous [about the fertility test] until it came back saying, ‘Yep, it’s all great, everything’s fine.’

‘[Tegan] is all good, obviously. She’s a young and healthy woman. So it’s good to know that everything’s fine in that area so it won’t interfere with any future plans.

‘[I wasn’t thinking about kids] because I’ve been work focused. But all my friends have kids and Tegan’s family and friends, they’ve all got kids. And we’re like the only couple at the barbecue that’ve got no kids, we have the FOMO [fear of missing out.’
