Nicki Minaj's husband has reportedly splashed out R16.5 million on her wedding ring, which features a 17-carat centre with WS2-clarity diamonds.

The "Anaconda" hitmaker tied the knot with Kenneth 'Zoo' Petty earlier this month, and although they initially married without the all important rings, they've now finally put the jewellery on each other's fingers, in the form of glistening R16.5 million diamond sparklers.

Whilst posting a professional shot of their couple's Halloween costume - which sees them take on horror movie "The Bride of Chucky" - Nicki wrote on Instagram: "#BrideOfChucky by @polkurucz hair by @kellonderyck makeup by @joycebonelli styled by @benjicarlisle our rings by @rafaelloandco (sic)"

And whilst the rings weren't actually in the picture, jewellers Rafaello and Co. posted their own clip of the stunning accessories, where they confirmed they were for 36-year-old Nicki and her spouse.

They captioned their post: "Congrats to the King and Queen, We wish you both lots of love and happiness together. Thank you for trusting us with designing and making these very special pieces for you both. @nickiminaj. (sic)"

The jeweller also told TMZ that Kenneth paid for the ring on his own, and noted that the bling - which has a 17-carat centre with WS2-clarity diamonds - is worth an estimated $1.1 million.

Nicki confirmed she had married Kenneth, 41, on Instagram earlier this month, when she posted a short video of bride and groom baseball caps, and Mr and Mrs mugs.

Captioning the clip with a bride and groom emoji, Nicki - who was born Onika Tanya Maraj - wrote: "Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty 10-21-19 (sic)"

And the 'Chun Li' rapper was recently said to be "very happy" with her "low-key" celebration.

A source said: "Nicki wanted to keep her wedding low-key. She's become much more private over the last year, but she is very happy."
