It comes after Rita – who has only been seen wearing the band in Instagram snaps – spoke about her love for husband Taika in a rare interview after secretly tying the knot earlier this summer.
The former X Factor judge insisted she is head over heels with the filmmaker, 47, and hinted she is planning another big wedding in London for her friends and family.

Pop star Rita who has never explicitly confirmed the marriage – although her close friends have, says she took inspiration from her parents – her mother Vera and her father Besnik – in her search for love after learning from their strong more than 30-year relationship.
She said on Jaime Winstone’s Greatest Night Ever podcast: ‘I’m in love. I’m very much in love. I’m in love, I’m in love, amen!
‘But I love love as well. I’ve always been such a believer in it and I’ve always felt like I always wanted the fairytale and that’s what I grew up loving.’

On her mum and dad, she added: ‘My parents have been together for over 30 years, so for me it was always about love and finding a partner and all that, so I’m really happy I did.
‘I made that choice. It made me happy and I love Taika. He’s so funny and lovely.’
It emerged Rita had married Taika in an intimate ceremony in London in August.
At the time, the star was said to have changed her surname, meaning she will now be known as Mrs Waititi-Ora.
The hitmaker and the Thor: Love And Thunder director were both pictured with gold bands on their ring fingers in the days around their wedding – sparking speculation they had already tied the knot.
Rita and Taika started dating in March 2021, before going public with their romance that August.
The couple got engaged two before their August wedding, with sources claiming they were planning a huge party to celebrate their secret wedding with friends and family.
