The Most Breathtaking Royal Engagement Rings
Queen Elizabeth II
Prince Philip had Queen Elizabeth’s three-karat diamond ring made with diamonds from one of his mother’s (Princess Alice of Battenberg, later Princess Andrew of Greece and Denmark) tiaras.
Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge
You may recognize the ring on Kate Middleton’s finger as the same one Prince William’s mother Diana was given by his father, Prince Charles. After proposing in 2010, William said part of the reason he used his mother’s ring is because he didn’t want her to “miss out on” the day.
Princess Anne didn’t have a problem finding “something blue.” She was given a sapphire and diamond engagement ring from her first husband, Captain Mark Phillips, and another sapphire and diamond ring for her second engagement to Sir Timothy Laurence, although the style and cut of the rings were different.
Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon
Princess Margaret’s ruby and diamond engagement ring was custom-designed by her husband to-be, Anthony Armstrong Jones, to resemble a rose, reflecting Margaret’s middle name.
Diana, Princess of Wales
The ring that now resides on Kate Middleton’s finger was first on Princess Diana’s. Prince Charles actually didn’t present Diana with the ring when he proposed, but instead let her choose from several rings. The 12-carat sapphire ring she picked is now arguably one of the most well known in the world.
Sarah, Duchess of York
Keeping with the colored-stone trend, the Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson’s ring features a ruby, which is supposedly a tribute to her red hair.
Sophie, Countess of Wessex
Prince Edward proposed to Sophie, Countess of Wessex, with a classic a two-carat oval diamond that features heart-shaped diamonds on either side of it. We “heart” this ring, too, Sophie!
Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor
American socialite Wallis Simpson and former King of Wales and Duke of Windsor Edward VIII had a controversial relationship to say the least, but her massive 19.77-carat emerald ring, engraved with “We are ours now 27 X 36” (he proposed on October 27, 1936) is one of our favorites.
