Diamonds are a girl’s best friend right?
Here at The Dress Studio, we love all things sparkly – think Magpie… that’s me!!
As news of the royal engagement of Prince Harry and Megan Markle breaks this week, I have to admit that as much as I am now heartbroken that I will never be a princess, I was so excited to see Megan’s ring!
Megan has joined the list of lucky women with royal engagement rings including, Kate Middleton and the Queen!
Here are some of the most regal royal engagement rings ever…
Well I think every girl had that moment where they wanted to be Kate Middleton, The Duchess of Cambridge when they saw this incredible ring! A 12 carat sapphire surrounded by 14 diamonds – this is an absolute beauty! This was actually the ring that Prince Charles gave to Princess Diana and so, it also carries such sentimental value, Kate you are one lucky girl!
The original owner of the ring that is now worn by Kate Middleton, is none other than Princess Diana. The ring originally cost a whopping £28,000!
Zara Phillips may not have a royal title, but the daughter of Princess Anne definitely has an engagement ring fit for a princess!
Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall was given a royal heirloom when she became engaged to Prince Charles. This ring was designed in the 1920’s and belonged to the late Queen mother.
Crown Princess Mary of Denmark’s ring is rumoured to have cost a whopping £10,000! This ring matches the colours of the Danish flag and has a very specific cut.
Queen Letizia of Spain’s ring is valued at a more humble £3000. This ring has 16 diamonds and a white gold trim, a little more discreet but still very pretty!
Of course, last but most definitely not least! Megan Markle’s engagment ring is what everyone is talking about this week. Prince Harry proposed to Meghan with a three-stone diamond, gold band engagement ring. According to reports, the two diamonds either side of the main stone were taken from Princess Diana’s diamond collection!
Well I won’t give up hope on becoming a princess, hopefully one day…
