American reality TV star Donald Trump will pay for the wedding band he'll give his fiancee MELANIA KNAUSS at their upcoming nuptials, according to the ring makers who deny reports he is getting the jewellery for free.

GRAFF DIAMOND SELLERS dismiss a story run in newspaper THE NEW YORK POST that Trump would receive the jewels free of charge in exchange for mentioning them on his television show The Apprentice.

A representative for the luxury store tells ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT the freebie story is "totally false", and explains that while Trump did buy an engagement ring at the store, no deals were made.

He claims Trump has not yet singled out a gem, but when he does he'll "pay the right price".
