Meghan Markle’s Engagement Ring

Fairy tales typically end when the Prince proposes to his beloved one. That is precisely what happened today in the United Kingdom.

Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle announced their engagement, radiating affection and happiness! With his grandmother’s blessing, Queen Elizabeth II, it seems that cupid’s arrow hit the rebellious Prince Harry, saying goodbye to his bachelor life.

But beyond the Prince and Meghan, the love story has yet another significant character: the engagement ring! Without it, the declaration of love is not complete! It has been like this throughout the ages and in many different cultures. An engagement ring symbolises love, union and commitment between two people and is considered one of the most symbolic elements of the history of jewellery.

To give even more meaning to the ring, Prince Harry himself designed the jewel, which has a centre diamond acquired by the couple during their vacation in Botswana, and two smaller diamonds from Diana’s collection. The beautiful yellow gold ring was produced by Cleave & Co., Court Jewellers and Medalists to Her Majesty The Queen.

Adding to the romantic occasion, Prince Harry declared that he fell in love with Miss Markle from the first moment he saw her! And like in all fairy tales, now they are close to the happy ending. However, we will have to wait a little bit because the wedding will be in the Spring of 2018!

Best wishes to the couple!
