The dazzling diamond ring that Dodi Fayed purchased for Princess Diana

It’s finally time – new episodes of ‘The Crown’ are here!

The sixth and final season of the Emmy award winning Netflix series is being launched in two parts. Set in the late 90s, the new episodes pick up from season fives abrupt ending, charting Princess Diana’s final days – heavily focusing on her relationship with Dodi Fayed, son of Egyptian billionaire and Harrods owner, Mohamed Al-Fayed.

In episode 3, we see Dodi purchase an engagement ring for the late Princess of Wales. Though parts of the series are fabricated, an engagement ring was reportedly recovered at the Dodi’s apartment in Paris after their tragic deaths – alongside a receipt for the Repossi jewellery store.

Engagement ring and diamond experts at UK retailer Steven Stone have taken a close look at the ring and revealed everything there is to know.

“Princess Diana’s engagement ring from the then Prince Charles is one of the most iconic pieces of jewellery in royal history, but did you know that there’s another engagement ring associated with the late Princess of Wales?

After the sad passing of Diana and her partner Dodi Fayed, an engagement ring was reportedly recovered at Dodi’s apartment in Paris – alongside a receipt for the Repossi jewellery store.

An emerald cut diamond sits at the centre of the dazzling ring, accented with four trillion cut diamonds on each side that are bordered by a yellow gold trim. Further accentuating the rings sparkle, it has a wide pave band that boasts at least 40 round cut diamonds. The ring is reportedly inscribed with “Dis-moi Oui,” which means “Tell me yes” in French – a particularly romantic touch.

The sparkler reportedly cost Dodi £11,600 – though I estimate it to be worth around £20,000 today.”
