AN ENGAGEMENT ring that looks just like the Haribo sweet has launched in time for Valentines Day – but it costs £25,000.
The childhood-inspired ring features 224 custom cut rubies and is topped with a bright yellow sapphire set with 40 diamonds.
The ring's ruby band totals a weight of 3.60ct set into an 18ct rose gold band.
Meanwhile its 2.70 carat cabochon yellow sapphire is set with 40 fancy-intense yellow diamonds in an 18ct yellow gold basket.
Creators Taylor & Hart said the statement piece "harks back to an age of fun, play and being home in time for tea before the street lights come on”.
And it's been called the “ultimate proposal ring for your childhood sweetheart”.
Priced at £25,000, you could buy over 1.25million Haribo rings for the same price.
The company's Kate Earlam-Charnley, said: “With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we thought it was the perfect time to bring this brand-new design to life.
“Combining custom-cut rubies and a syrupy cabochon yellow sapphire, this ring is one of the most ambitious we’ve ever created and definitely one of the most original.”
She added: “Made for the daydreamers, the hopeless romantics, those in search of something a little more pure and innocent, this ring is the perfect expression of love.”
