Cheryl Cole Sneaks Off to Mustique and Marries Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini Cheryl Cole set Instagram ablaze this Bastille Day Weekend with an announcement of her secret surfside marriage to Frenchman Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini on the glamorous island of Mustique and a photo of her white-hot engagement ring and wedding band, reportedly worth £300,000! “Chezza’s” emerald cut diamond engagement ring is crafted from platinum, set in a wide band, mounted with two side stones and complemented perfectly by her simple channel set diamond wedding band.

The X Factor judge and former Girls Aloud singer posted the announcement and a photo of the rings a week after the couple’s posh Caribbean nuptials: “I usually do not discuss my personal life but to stop the speculation I want to share my happy news…Jean-Bernard and I married on 7/7/14. We are very happy and excited to move forward with our lives together.”

The couple, who met a few years ago but didn’t start dating until earlier this year, moved in together prior to the wedding. They have recently been spotted at glamorous international events, including the Cannes Film Festival. Restaurateur Fernandez-Versini, a former playboy who spent his 20s in New York, where he attended university, has been all smiles since marrying one of Britain’s hottest bachelorettes.
