Meghan Markle’s stunning engagement ring is composed of two diamonds from his mother Princess Diana’s personal collection, a Botswana diamond center stone because of the place’s significance to the couple’s relationship, all across a thin gold band to complement Meghan’s skin tone.
According to Nic Cerrone, founder of Cerrone Jewellers, the center diamond is a cushion-cut that is currently quite on-demand. Usually, when there is a royal engagement, people would flock to popular jewellers and request a ring exactly like theirs. Princess Diana’s sapphire ring that was passed down the Kate Middleton was also an immensely popular request when Kate and William announced their engagement.
