Prince Harry and Meghan Markle recently embarked on a memorable trip to British Columbia, immersing themselves in the region’s natural beauty and vibrant culture.

From exploring the lush forests of Vancouver Island to embracing the charming communities along the coastline, the royal couple experienced a blend of adventure and relaxation.

In recent sightings, Meghan has notably been without her engagement ring, sparking speculation among royal watchers. However, during the trip, she was seen wearing the cherished ring – alongside two other rings that also hold significant sentimental value.

Diamond experts at UK retailer Steven Stone have revealed everything you need to know about the three rings.

Eternity Ring

Value: £80,000 ($100,000)

Meghan Markle’s eternity ring garnered attention from royal enthusiasts and fashion aficionados alike when she first showcased it at Trooping the Colour in 2019.

Positioned beside her wedding band and engagement ring, the eternity ring holds a special significance as it was a heartfelt gift from her husband, Prince Harry, commemorating their first wedding anniversary. However, what many may not realise is that this elegant band pays homage to their family in a unique way.

Crafted with conflict-free diamonds, the eternity ring features the birthstones of Meghan, Archie and Harry, discreetly placed on its underside – a captivating olive green peridot, a flawless green emerald and a striking blue sapphire, respectively.

Each of these birthstones carries its own symbolism and meaning; sapphires are believed to offer protection to loved ones, peridots are associated with empowerment, and emeralds symbolise renewal and affection, encapsulating the profound bond shared within their family.

Engagement Ring

Estimated Value: £120,000 ($150,000)

When Prince Harry proposed to Meghan in 2017, he bestowed upon her a stunning three-stone engagement ring adorned with diamonds sourced from Princess Diana’s esteemed jewellery collection. After more than 18 months, Meghan opted to refine the ring, exchanging its original yellow gold band for a delicate, diamond-studded band.

The ring’s design – personally crafted by Prince Harry – boasts a center cushion-cut diamond sourced from Botswana, a place of profound significance for the couple. Botswana’s diamond mining industry has played a pivotal role in the nation’s development, fostering prosperity while prioritising environmental sustainability.

The centerpiece – a remarkable 3 carat stone – exhibits exceptional quality, showcasing flawless clarity and a captivating hue. Flanking the centre stone are two round diamonds, also sourced from Princess Diana’s collection, each weighing approximately 0.5 to 0.75 carats, further enriching the ring’s sentimental value.

Wedding Band

Estimated Value: £10,000 ($12,700)

The wedding band presented by Harry to Meghan was crafted from Welsh gold, which was a gift from the late Queen Elizabeth II. The tradition of the royal family using Welsh gold for wedding rings began in 1923 with the Queen Mother.

The band was meticulously crafted by Cleave & Company, the esteemed jeweler responsible for crafting Meghan’s iconic three-stone diamond engagement ring.

“Gifted to her by Prince Harry to mark their first wedding anniversary, Meghan’s diamond eternity ring exudes glamour with its inclusion of peridot, emerald, and sapphire stones – representing the birthstones of Meghan, Harry, and Archie. The sentimental significance of incorporating their family’s birthstones makes it a cherished choice from Prince Harry. Given its exquisite design and sentimental value, I would estimate it to be worth around £80,000.

In 2017, Prince Harry proposed to Meghan with a stunning three-stone engagement ring, adorned with diamonds from Princess Diana’s collection. Meghan later made alterations to the ring, replacing the yellow gold band with a delicate diamond pave band. Custom-designed by Prince Harry, the ring features a center cushion-cut diamond sourced from Botswana, a place of significance to the couple. Taking into account that the 3 to 4 carat centre stone is extremely high quality with incredible colour and clarity, I’d estimate the ring to be worth £120,000.

Worth £10,000, Meghan’s wedding band was made of Welsh gold gifted by the late Queen Elizabeth II – a traditional choice for royal weddings, symbolising purity and longevity in marriage.

The three sentimental rings are worth a total of £210,000.”
