London: Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding has had her engagement ring altered because it wasn`t `unusual` enough.

The 29-year-old singer was stunned when DJ boyfriend Tom Crane proposed to her last New Year`s Eve. Though she was delighted by the sapphire-and-diamond piece he popped the question with, Harding recently had the band transformed by British designer Stephen Webster, reported Contactmusic.

"I knew Sarah wanted a central sapphire with diamonds but the original ring, although beautiful, wasn`t as unusual as she wanted," said Crane.

Sarah added, "We sent it off to be blinged up - a sort of `pimp my ring`.

"I wanted something old school with a modern twist and we knew Stephen was the perfect jeweller to do that. He added more diamonds and changed the shape of the sapphire slightly. The original ring was the perfect foundation - I just wanted it to be more unique."
