MEGHAN MARKLE UNVEILS CHANGES TO HER DIAMOND ENGAGEMENT RING
The original version of Meghan’s engagement ring had been designed by Prince Harry and featured two of the late Princess Diana’s diamonds, alongside a huge central stone from Botswana in an elegant three stone setting with a plain band.
Then earlier this month, eagle-eyed onlookers spotted that Meghan’s ring had been altered slightly with a contemporary twist.
Meghan has chosen to reset the three diamonds in a daintier, slimmer band – a very modern aesthetic that’s proving popular in current engagement ring trends. With the addition of delicate diamond pavé shoulders.
Many have been quick to question why Meghan made the decision to modernise her ring, when Harry had taken the time to personally curate the bespoke design. Whilst others think that the alterations are more reflective of Meghan’s modern approach to her role within the Royal Family.
Regardless of what your views are on the changes that have been made to Meghan’s ring, the process of updating your engagement ring is actually more popular than you might think.
Simple changes like the addition of a diamond cluster, shoulders or even a new band can breathe new life into a piece of jewellery that you might feel is looking a little outdated.
