Everything is royal about the royal weddings, including the “royal” engagements. With two royal weddings this year, the topic of engagement rings have floated again in the air.
The rings not only are expensive but also have a lot of personal emotions attached to them. Let’s begin our royal exploration!
Two great grand weddings are scheduled this year of two beautiful princess Ms. Markle and the gorgeous Princess Eugenie marrying the handsome Prince Harry and the dashing Jack Brooksbank respectively.
The former star confirmed their pre-wedding ceremony of engagement in Nov. 2017 and soon after, his cousin and her boyfriend announced their wedding too. Both the weddings are scheduled one after another in the same venue.
This has led the "royal" fans to anticipate the details of the wedding, especially the rings that were exchanged on the engagement ceremony.
According to a leading jewelry outlet, each royal ring has its own significance and each and every ring carries different values.
The ring dates back to 1981 when Prince Charles popped the question to his lady. Princess Diana's ring was not custom-made instead was picked up from a collection by Garrard & Co. Ltd, a leading jeweler.
Featuring a rare Sri Lankan 12 carat blue Ceylon Sapphire and surrounded by 14 solitaire diamonds set in white gold of 18 carats, the ring is breath-taking.
After Princess Diana's death, her son, Prince William proposed his love, Kate Middleton with the same ring in 2010. When purchased, in 1981, the ring was valued at $39K but its current value is estimated to be $400K.
The ring has two cut diamonds, a large cushion cut diamond of approximately 4 carats. The gem is believed to have come from Botswana, a place which is very close to Prince Harry.
With two cut diamonds and a large cushion cut diamond weigh of 4 carats, the ring has garnered a lot of attention worldwide.
The current price of the ring is approximately estimated to be $ 170K.
If the estimates and rumors are to be believed, then Princess Diana's ring is the most expensive of all in terms of money. However, it's not that the price matters but surely the sentiments and history do.
