Meghan Markle Got A Unique Upgrade To Her Engagement Ring
Royal watchers have been drooling over Meghan Markle's engagement ring ever since it was publicly debuted in November of 2017. It was perfect, and designed by Prince Harry himself! But during her recent Trooping the Colour appearance she showed off an updated version of the three-stone ring.
The original ring had three diamonds set on a simple 14-karat yellow gold band, which Harry told the press was her favorite metal. "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 — on this crazy journey together," he said.
But now the trio of larger stones are set on a delicate band covered with pavé diamonds. And that's not the only change to Meghan's ring finger. She also sports a third ring now, an eternity band that honors the growing Sussex family. Harry gifted Meghan with the ring which is set with three birthstones: a blue sapphire stone for Harry, a peridot for the Duchess, and a green emerald for baby Archie.
Meghan isn't the only member of the modern royal family to change her engagement ring. Harry's mother Princess Diana also upgraded her sapphire ring, which is now worn by Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge. Diana’s original ring wasn’t "bespoke,” or one of a kind, so she had more diamonds added to it a few years after her marriage to Prince Charles.
