Cristiano Ronald is an Eccentric Jewelry Lover

Ronaldo makes a lot of money but he knows to spend a lot as well. The superstar and his beautiful girlfriend, Georgina Rodriquez, are famous for their amazing jewelry. Reportedly, their combined jewelry collection is well worth millions.

Ronaldo is a collector of the world’s most luxurious watches.
While receiving the Player of the Century Award at the Dubai Globe Soccer Awards, he wore a magnificent watch, a Rolex GMT Master Ice worth 500,000 dollars. This model is the most expensive Rolex that exists in the world and is made from 18-carat white gold and has hundreds of 30-carat diamonds embedded in it.

But that Rolex is not the most expensive watch the Portughese star has. In 2018, Ronaldo was spotted at a press conference in which he announced his emotional return to Manchester United wearing a Franck Muller watch priced at 1.65 million dollars!

The famous soccer player is not only generous with himself. When it is the love of his life, Georgiana, who cares about the cost?
After Ronaldo proposed to her, Georgina Rodriquez shared the happy news with her fans exposing the beautiful and giant engagement ring worth almost 850,000 dollars. The band of the ring is adorned with diamonds and has a huge sapphire gemstone as a centerpiece. The Cartier rock is said to be the most expensive ring purchased by a soccer star.
The jewelry Ronaldo bought to show his love to Georgina tops the list for the most expensive engagement rings purchased by celebrities.
