We love everything royal, especially their remarkable engagement rings. Although, Queen Elizabeth II’s diamond ring and Lady Diana’s sapphire engagement ring are by far the most popular royal rings in history, there are many other equally stunning rings of royals that might inspire you. From the classic sapphire rings to iconic emerald ring, check out the extraordinary royal rings to take some ideas for your future proposal.
Queen Elizabeth’s Kashmir Sapphire Ring
Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon received a beautiful Kashmir Sapphire ring set with diamond accents from the Duke of York. Although, she abandon the ring in 1950s (the reason was not known), the ring is still a perfect inspiration for a glorious royal proposal.
Duchess of Windsor’s Emerald Ring
Wallis Simpson’s emerald engagement ring was as beautiful as her love story. King Edward VIII abdicated his throne to marry Wallis Simpson, who was an American divorced twice. He gave her a large emerald ring of 19.77 carats. Later, the ring was upgraded by Cartier in 1958 when diamonds were added to it a more opulent mount in yellow gold.
Princess Anne’s Sapphire Rings
This royal lady received two sapphire engagement rings. The first ring from Mark Phillips was a classic three-stone style set with a round sapphire in between brilliant round diamonds. For her second time down the aisle, the princess royal was given an unusual bezel set cabochon sapphire ring flanked by three diamond accents on each side. Although, the design was not very royal, it was a suitable pick for Princess Anne.
