How Many Carats is Meghan Markle’s Aquamarine Ring?
There are several items of jewelry that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have inherited from their late mother Princess Diana. The most memorable of these pieces is the stunning aquamarine ring she wore on a number of occasions. It is a very special piece of jewellery, and one that is still worn today by both Meghan and Prince Harry.
The heirloom diamond is the centre stone in her dazzling trilogy ring, which is a stunning example of a custom design. It features a large cushion cut centre diamond which is sourced from Botswana and is surrounded by two smaller gems from her late mother’s collection.
It is believed that the larger centre stone is around three to four carats, according to a gemologist who spoke to Bustle back in 2017. Experts say that the two smaller diamonds are estimated to be about 0.75 carats each.
If you want to channel her sparkling style, then the ring is a must have in your jewellery box. It can be found in a variety of different designs and is made with a blackened 925 sterling silver band, with hand-cut white and blue stones. It is also available with a pink or orange centre stone.
Princess Diana first wore the aquamarine ring in 1996 and it was a major statement piece at the time. She paired the ring with an electric blue Versace dress and horseshoe earrings for a charity fundraising event in Sydney, Australia.
She later wore it again in October that year at the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute fundraising gala. It was then passed down to her son Prince Harry, who gave it to Meghan for her wedding reception in 2018.
The royal family have a wealth of beautiful jewellery but this is by far their most expensive. It is worth over PS130,000 and is a huge piece of jewellery.
In fact, this ring has already become a firm favourite of Meghan Markle and she is often seen wearing it during her travels. For instance, during her royal tour to Tonga last year, she was spotted wearing it for a private audience with King Tupou VI and Queen Nanasipau’u.
Its a dazzling piece of jewellery that is worth so much more than it costs to own, and it is one that will be worn for many years to come. There is a lot to love about this ring, from the bespoke design to the incredibly beautiful diamonds which are sourced from Botswana.
Princess Diana also wore this ring in her later years, as a replacement for her iconic sapphire and diamond engagement ring. It was often referred to as a “matching ring” for her eyes, as the pale blue stone complimented her skin tone perfectly.
The ring is currently valued at PS130,000 and it is a very high-quality piece of jewellery. It is very difficult to get a good estimate of the carat weight of the ring because it has a number of different gems in it and each one will have a different price.
