Queen Elizabeth II wedding: Royal given stunning £200k engagement ring – what was it like?
Speaking to Express.co.uk, she said: “Queen Elizabeth’s engagement ring, made in London but with diamonds taken from Prince Philip’s mother’s tiara, stays away from the coloured gemstones that future generations have.
“It features a beautiful 3ct ‘old cut’ diamond set in a traditional claw setting in platinum with five smaller diamonds on each shoulder to finish it off.”
The diamond had a sweet nod to Philip’s family as it was designed with diamonds from his mother’s collection.
It also appeared to have a more classic style than other royals since as it avoided colourful jewels.
