Bespoke engagement rings seem to be the most-popular modern approach to that all-important piece of jewellery. Previously on the blog we’ve sought to help you get in the know about wedding ring styles, engagement ring tips, celebrity ring favourites and especially, engagement ring trends. One thing we’ve absolutely learnt is that perfect means personal. Prince Harry has absolutely proven us right, with a private proposal and an incredibly significant bespoke diamond ring.
It was anticipated that the prince would propose with a jewel that belonged to his late mother, similar to the gesture made by his brother, Prince William. Yet rather than gifting a ring belonging to Princess Diana, Harry went a step further, choosing to design a bespoke ring which would pay tribute to both his mother and his fiancée in a personalised way.
The two smaller diamonds in Meghan’s trilogy diamond ring belonged to Diana’s jewellery collection, while the central stone is sourced from Botswana, a responsible source of diamonds and a country seeking to return its diamond revenue back into mining communities. Botswana also holds significance as a place Harry and Meghan went on safari together. Environmental and personal, Meghan’s ring follows all the favoured trends when it comes to modern engagement rings.
Yellow gold was picked because, as Prince Harry notes, “that is her favourite” – and seems to be favoured among stars over the previously-popular white gold metal. The story of this ring is showered with personality, and shows ‘Design Your Own’ is not only increasing in general popularity, but it’s a step forward with a royal stamp of approval: and we love it!
