We woke to images of newlywed Meghan Markle wearing a stunning Stella McCartney reception dress, but all eyes are on that rock: not her diamond engagement ring, but an enormous aquamarine sparkler adorning her right hand.

Photos of the newly crowned Duke and Duchess of Sussex waving from their Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero (nice ride, Hazza) show Meghan wearing the new piece of jewellery, which is said to be a wedding gift from Prince Harry, Town & Country reports.

Not only does the ring serve as her ‘something blue’, it’s also a sartorial tribute to Princess Diana: the emerald-cut aquamarine ring belonged to the late princess, and was part of a two-piece set including an aquamarine bracelet with five strands of pearls. As People reports, Princess Diana wore both to a Victor Chang Research Institute gala in Australia in 1996.
