Royal Engagement Rings We Love

There is a reason royal engagement rings make the headlines. These rings are the stuff dreams are made of. They inspire every woman, every little girl, who sees them and wants them and plans for them their whole lives. Of course, very few of us can actually afford royal engagement rings, which is probably why we’re all so fascinated by them. Well, that and the fact that they are huge, and sparkly, and very, very pretty.

Royal engagement rings vary from the very simple to the very ornate. The Swedish Crown Princess Victoria got engaged to her personal trainer in 2009 and recently tied the knot. He proposed with a simple solitaire engagement ring, with a round brilliant cut set on a gold band. The sparkle came from the high cut and colour quality of the diamond. Prince Albert of Monoco proposed with a pear shaped three carat engagement ring, which stuns merely by the shear hugeness of the diamond.

Many royal engagement rings pay homage to the princess’s home country, incorporating coloured gemstones with the diamonds. Danish Princess Marie Cavallier has a ring that, with its sapphires, rubies, and diamonds, resembles the French flag, honouring her French background. The Crown Princess Mary of Denmark has two rubies as well as a diamond, keeping with Danish tradition to have royal jewellery with the colours of the flag.

And of course, if we are talking about royal engagement rings, we have to mention Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and her sapphire engagement ring surrounded by smaller diamonds. The thing that makes this ring so spectacular, besides its stunning beauty, is that it was Princess Diana’s, Prince William’s mother. The history this ring carries makes it especially romantic.

Royal engagement rings set trends that the jewellery world loves to aspire to. They have a history, a story, a meaning, and a beauty that every woman dreams her engagement ring will one day have. Whether these rings are dazzling in their simplicity, jaw-dropping because of their shear size, or gorgeous because of their intricate design, the world loves to ooh and aww over their royal engagement rings.
