Bella Thorne gave Instagram fans something to talk about when she announced that she and Mark Emms will tie the knot. Mark, a bar owner and movie producer, gave Bella one of the biggest diamonds we have ever seen. So what is the story behind these love birds? Here we’ll share the juicy details of their relationship, engagement, and that gorgeous rock on her finger!
Bella Thorne and Mark Emms: Love in Ibiza
You might imagine that Bella, an actress and director, and producer Mark might meet on the set of a movie. Instead, these two were at the beach in Ibiza when they met and fell in love. They were both attending Cara Delevingne’s beach birthday party last year. So how did Bella’s story lead her to Mark and ultimately to an enormous engagement ring?
Bella’s Young Career
Believe it or not, Bella’s acting career began when she was six weeks old with her first published picture in “Parents Magazine.” She has three siblings, all of whom have acted as well. She moved to California to pursue her professional acting dream and has been extremely successful.
Thorne’s fame grew through the awards and nominations she received for her role in the Disney Channel series “Shake It Up.” She continued to be cast in films including “Blended” (2014) and “Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip.” (2015) Thorne dabbled in music as well and has even released a single.
Fast forward to 2019, where Bella had appeared in more than 60 commercials and magazines. Her career took off in film and TV, and she even received nominations for the Teen Choice Awards. In April of 2019, Bella began dating Italian singer Benjamin Mascolo.
After Bella ended her engagement to Benjamin Mascolo in June of 2022, for what the couple says are personal reasons, Mark was the first man to catch her eye a few months later. Bella did not want to discuss her break up with the press, and wasn’t ready at first to make her new relationship public.
The first sign of affection between Bella and Mark was the sighting of the two kissing on a yacht in Myknonos, Greece while on vacation. At the time, fans weren’t sure of the identity of the mystery man Bella was spending time with.
On September 9, the couple had been dating for about a month when a source who knows the couple told People magazine that they indeed had a budding romance and were having fun together. More information about the British entrepreneur Mark began to emerge. He says he his beginnings were in the entertainment industry and is the founder of Easter Road Films LLC, a production company.
Videos circulated on Instagram of the couple with some of Bella’s best friends celebrating her 25th birthday in the Dominican Republic. No official statements were made, but the insinuation was clear that romance continued to grow between them.
On Valentine’s Day 2023, the couple finally went officially public. Instagram, which is a huge source of income for Thorne, was how the couple chose to announce their official status as a couple. “Find someone you want to share your candy with,” Bella said, to a post of them sharing Valentine’s Day candy Lady-and-the-Tramp style.
On May 13, one day before Mother’s Day, Mark romantically proposed down on one knee at Bella’s house in California. They celebrated with their families afterward. Thorne was happy to show off her new engagement ring on Instagram on May 26.
Wedding Plans: Already in the Works
Bella wasted no time starting to think about wedding details. It’s clear that she’s enjoying the planning process. She hopes to be married in the English countryside, where Emms is from, on the beautiful grounds of an English manor. So, who will design the dress? She’s thinking either vintage Schiaparelli or Dior. She added that “Every bride does not need one gown, but four,” so maybe both will get a shot!
The Engagement: Shrouded in Mystery
Not much else is known about how Emms proposed to Thorne as of yet. We know that they were at Thorne’s home in California on the May 13, and that Bella Thorne’s engagement ring is gigantic. The two seem to be crazy about each other and excited to begin married life together.
So How About That Ring?
Emms certainly did not fail to impress with his choice in engagement rings. Vogue shared details of the ring: it is a 10-plus carat emerald cut diamond ring set in the center of baguettes which flank the center stone.
Thorne’s previous engagement ring from Benjamin Mascolo, a 3.5 to 4-carat pear cut diamond surrounded by a diamond halo, cannot compare in value or sparkle. Though it was beautiful on a white gold or platinum diamond adorned band, Wedding Scoop’s Jewelry Experts say it was probably valued between $75,000 and $125,000.
How Much Is the New Ring Worth?
It’s not every day that a 10-plus carat diamond ring is assessed. Though the couple has not released the specific value of the ring, we reached out to Wedding Scoop’s Jewelry Experts to get their evaluation of the ring. The best estimation we have of the ring value is around $950,000 (from web source). It’s clear that no expense was spared to make this bride-to-be as happy as possible.
Estimating Bella Thorne’s Engagement Ring Value
We can only estimate the value of the ring, since we must guess at the color and clarity. A ring of lower quality of this size could be valued around $80,000 If the 10-plus carat diamond is of a higher quality, the value of the ring could be as much as $120,000. No matter what the quality, Bella Thorne’s Engagement Ring stunning diamond shines brightly on Bella Thorne’s finger and we can see she loves it!
