Meghan Markle

Prince Harry designed Markle’s stunning engagement ring himself. It features three main stones, the centre of which is a cushion-cut diamond from Botswana, a place “close to the hearts” of both Meghan and Harry and where they first holidayed together.

The huge middle-stone is flanked by two side-stones, both round-cut and taken from the personal collection of Harry’s late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales. 

Crown Princess Mary of Denmark

Mary’s ruby and diamond ring was fitting because it represented the red and white of the Danish flag, and is quite simply a spectacular symbol of her induction into royalty.

Queen Letizia Of Spain

A bold yet stunning thick band of diamonds for the world to gawk at that was received with a necklace to match from King Felipe.

Maria Teresa, Grand Duchess of Luxembourg

One extravagant and grand diamond encircled by more diamonds, on a band of – you guessed it – diamonds.

Princess Charlene of Monaco

Albert II popped the question to Charlene with a delicate pear-shaped engagement ring and a fitted band flanked with diamonds.

Princess Mette-Marit of Norway

The Nordic Princess dons a tri-stone ring, but the best part is that she wears it on whatever hand she wants, when she wants.

Queen Silvia of Sweden

One isn’t enough for the queen of Sweden – she wears a set of three that includes a diamond solitaire, a diamond strip and a magnificent ruby on a band lined with diamonds.

Grace Kelly, Princess of Monaco

When Prince Rainier III realised that other women were sporting bigger and better rings than his original choice, he quickly ordered this 10.5-carat, emerald-cut and diamond-laden exquisite ring from Cartier.

Princess Diana

Engagement ring goals – the infamous 12-carat sapphire stone complimented by a collection of diamonds bound in a rose-gold band. The ring is now worn by the Duchess of Cambridge and makes for a beautiful legacy.
