Now, eyes are popping and tongues are wagging over the precious diamonds the pair wear on their fingers, worth a whopping R2,9 million.

In the second episode of their Showmax Original special, Somizi & Mohale: The Union, never-seen-before footage from their wedding band consultation with Nungu Diamonds founders, Kealeboga and Ursula Pule, is shown and just we are curious about the details.

Somizi can’t stop gushing about the perfection that is nestled around his finger, he wrote on Instagram.

“We still can’t believe how @nungudiamonds were able to bring our vision of our rings to life just as we had imagined them. Not only am I proud of what u did for us but it's so refreshing to see young black folks owning and taking up space in the mining and diamond industry.”

The creators of the customised pieces pride themselves in giving their clients a personal experience with their diamonds. 

“We call this the Nungu Diamonds experience. So, Somizi and Mohale came to see us, they got to see and touch the diamonds first, and then from that conversation they decided on the design, which my wife spearheaded,” Kealeboga says. 

Ursula is the designer of the wedding bands and says it took three weeks to set the diamonds. 

“What we did is take apart the two-carat diamond idea and designed it in a layout, or pattern, that speaks to the individual. This is a good example of the design taking precedence over the size of the diamond.”

While flashy diamonds are a statement, Kealeboga says, “It’s not about having the biggest diamond, it’s what you do with it that matters.” And the engraved bands were the cherry on top.
