Queen Elizabeth’s Engagement Ring
September 4, 2019
Queen Elizabeth’s engagement ring was given to her by Prince Philip after his proposal at Balmoral. The ring made it’s first public appearance on 10th July 1947 as the couple announced their engagement. It is reported that the couple kept their engagement a secret for a year at the request of Elizabeth’s Father King George VI as he would miss her on their country walks and horse rides.
The beautiful, classic ring features a three carat, round cut centre diamond, surrounded by 10 smaller diamonds in a platinum band. The smaller diamonds are reportedly take from the tiara of Prince Philip’s mother Princess Alice of Battenburg.
The value of the ring is estimated between £100 000 and £150 000.
The Buckley London Queen Elizabeth Ring, is a near identical replica of the elegant and timeless ring worn by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Crafted with hand-set cubic zirconias on a rhodium plated band, and presented in a special edition Royal Ring box for £25.
