It was 21 years ago when the royal household announced the engagement of Catherine Middleton to William, the Duke of Cambridge. Of course, as many know, the ring itself holds much more sentiment than its incredible, unique appearance.

Kate Middleton’s engagement ring is a 12-carat oval blue sapphire, cut into facets, and surrounded by fourteen solitaire diamonds. The setting is made from 18K white gold. Jewellers added small platinum beads inside the ring’s band in order to make it smaller for the Duchess’ slight fingers.

Where have I seen it before?

Obviously, the ring was Princess Diana’s first, William’s mother. Interestingly, when she got engaged to HRH the Prince of Wales, Diana opted to choose her own ring instead of choosing one from the royal jewels. Although Harry initially had the ring passed to him, he agreed at the time of William’s engagement that it would be apt for Kate to wear it.

The ring is a platinum ring set with eleven diamonds, a 3 carat round solitaire and five smaller stones set on each shoulder. The diamonds were said to be used from an existing piece as, whilst Prince Philip was born a Greek prince, it seems his family were not extremely wealthy. Diamond experts estimate that the ring is likely to be worth around £207,000. The Queen’s wedding ring is made from a Welsh gold nugget from the Clogau St David’s mine, which has also been used to make Princess Anne, Princess Diana and Kate Middleton’s wedding rings.

It’s hard to say what cost more – Kim’s engagement ring which Kanye West adorned her finger with in 2013 or the multi-million dollar divorce.

With only about 0.001% of all diamonds given the label ‘flawless’ (i.e. no visible blemishes even when the diamond is under 10X magnification), we can see why the stone fetches a pretty price.
