It's HUGE! Roger Federer's wife's "upgraded" engagement ring stole the limelight at Wimbledon
Mirka Federer was there supporting her husband Roger Federer as he played against Novak Djokovic in an intense five-hour game in the men’s finals on Sunday.
Although Roger didn’t end up going home with another grand slam title under his belt, many fans were distracted by Mirka’s impressive engagement ring, which has reportedly been upgraded from her original ring.
The stunning piece of jewellery is believed to be a one-of-a-kind design from a Brazilian jeweller H. Stern, according to Harper’s Bazaar.
The emerald-cut diamond ring is encircled by a snake-like band which is covered in several smaller diamonds in a white-gold or platinum setting.
The current style is definitely an upgrade on Mirka's original ring, which was a smaller emerald-cut diamond.
The mother-of-four attracted attention by taking her children along to see their dad play in the men’s finals.
The couple’s nine-year-old twin daughters, Myla and Charlene are the oldest, while their four-year-old twin sons Leo and Lenny were also there to watch dad and cheer him on.
The intense match between Roger and Novak Djokovic went on for a staggering five hours, and BBC commentator Andrew Castle switched the conversation to Mirka’s ring, according to The Sun.
He said: "Doesn’t look like costume jewellery, does it, on the finger?”
Tennis fans were quick to blast him as Castle had made remarks previously as to how much the men’s finalists earn.
