It is an anniversary fit for royalty as Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip celebrate their 72nd anniversary on November 20th. Royal weddings have been a fan-favorite event for decades. We often get so distracted by tiaras and crowns on the heads of royals that we forget to notice the other jewels they have on, such as their incredible engagement rings. Being part of a royal family means incredible family heirlooms and access to the world’s most premier jewelers, so these engagement rings are to die for. These royal engagement rings have sentimental value, colored stones, simplistic styles, massive carat counts and more.
The Queen has plenty of jewels at her disposal, but there’s one piece of jewelry that she rarely takes off: her three-carat round diamond engagement ring. Though he was born a royal, Philip’s family was not particularly wealthy. When it came time to propose his mother, Princess Alice of Battenberg, gave her son a tiara that was originally given to her as a wedding present so he could dismantle it and craft it into a ring.
If you are looking for a royalty-inspired engagement ring for your queen, this classic design by Verragio would be a perfect choice. Made in 18 karat white gold, it features 0.30ct of round brilliant-cut diamonds to enhance a round diamond center. Better start asking your grandmothers for some loose stones off a tiara or two!
When Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton the world could not help but gush over the sapphire and diamond ring that belonged to the late Princess Diana.
