Kate Middleton engagement ring: How Princess Diana chose ring in shocking way

Princess Diana was famously engaged and then married to Prince Charles, 71, the next in line to the British throne and son of Queen Elizabeth II, 94. In February 1981 they became engaged and Diana was seen sporting a stunning, huge dark blue sapphire.

They claimed Diana chose this particular ring for a simple reason, because it was the biggest.

Now this sapphire piece is one of the most famous gem associated with the Royal Family.

All of the jewellery in Diana’s private collection, including this ring, was left to Prince William and Prince Harry, 35.

Each Prince famously chose a piece to remember their mother by when she passed to keep and Harry chose this engagement ring.

On William’s engagement to Kate Middleton, Harry offered him the ring to use, in a sweet gesture.

According to research carried out jewellery manufacturer Buckley London, 20 percent of the public like Meghan’s ring best.

The second most popular celebrity ring was Jennifer Lopez’s huge emerald cut diamond with 16 percent.

Kate Middleton’s historic engagement ring, which was once given to Princess Diana by Prince Charles, came fifth in the vote with 10 percent.

The last royal ring in the top 10 was Princess Eugenie’s pink sapphire ringed by diamonds from now-husband Jack Brooksbank.
