David Furnish was left horrified when Elton presented him with his commitment ring - because the "simple" piece he had requested was too flamboyant.
The Rocket Man and his longterm partner exchanged vows in a civil ceremony in 2005, but Furnish admits it took him a while to adapt to his bling.
He tells Hello! magazine, "I told Elton to choose the simplest design. Then two days before the civil partnership the boxes were brought out and I was like, 'Woooah - that is not simple!' I said, 'I can't wear that every day.' And Elton said, 'Of course you can.' And I thought, 'You know what? You're right. I am going to wear it every day.' And I've come to love my wedding ring."
