Meghan Markles Engagement Ring

Meghan Markles Engagement Ring

Posted in News by Caroline Hallemann on January 12th 2018
Just a few months after announcing her engagement to Prince Harry, Meghan Markle gave royal watchers a closer look at her diamond ring.

While visiting Reprezent Radio in Brixton alongside Markle and Prince Harry, photographer Dominic Lipinski snapped a picture of the bride-to-be's left hand, showcasing the stunning piece of jewellery.

Before the happy couple announced their plans to wed, predictions suggested that Harry might propose with the Queen Mother's engagement ring, or perhaps her massive diamond-and-pearl ring, but Harry opted instead to create a custom piece.

"The ring is obviously yellow gold because that's [Markle's] favorite and the main stone itself I sourced from Botswana and the little diamonds either side are from my mother's jewellery collection, to make sure that she's with us on this crazy journey together," Harry said during the couple's first sit-down interview with the BBC.

"It's incredible," Markle said of Harry's gesture. "Everything about Harry’s thoughtfulness and the inclusion of [Princess Diana’s stones] and obviously not being able to meet his mom, it’s so important to me to know that she’s a part of this with us."

"It’s incredibly special to be able to have this [ring], which sort of links where you come form and Botswana, which is important to us. It's perfect," she told the BBC.

We'd have to agree.

Markle’s ring is not only gorgeous, but it’s also incredibly valuable. “Ms. Markle’s stunning ring appears to be a 3 carat cushion cut diamond with two side diamonds flanking the center stone at approximately 0.5 ct to 0.75 ct each,” says Andrew Brown, President of WP Diamonds. These side diamonds belonged to Princess Diana, and the center stone seems to be among the best of its kind. “We would estimate the retail to be upwards of $50,000—but with royal provenance, a ring like this could sell from anywhere between $500,000 and $1 million.”
