The Royal Wedding: Let's See The Ring!

With Prince William and Kate Middleton officially married (congratulations you two!) the world has been enamoured with every little detail, from the dress to the hair to the kiss and the ring! Before the newly titled Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, we had several other royals debut their sparkling engagement rings and recently posted a blog featuring all the royal rings. It was so inspiring I just had to post my favourites. Look on and be inspired:

First we have the actress turned princess, Her Serene Highness Princess Grace Kelly. Known for her classic and ladylike style, she inspired millions with her full skirts, twin sets and timeless pearls. She even caught the eye of luxury brand Hermes, which famously created the Kelly bag after seeing her use it to conceal her one of her pregnancies. Her beautiful emerald cut diamond engagement ring which perfectly fit her elegant style, was 10.5 carats with two baguettes created by known other then Cartier. 

Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York has been known for more than her royal ties. She has been the spokesperson for Weight Watchers for several years and has also written several children's and lifestyle books. Instead of the traditional white diamond, Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York wore a ruby engagement which her former husband, Prince Andrew chose because of her bright red hair.

The Duchess of Windsor was an American socialite who had a controversial relationship with the former King Edward VIII. It was their deep love for each other that kept their relationship strong which was reflected in the 19.77 carat emerald engagement ring that Edward VIII gave to her that was inscribed by a personal inscription that read: "We are ours now 27 X 36". How special!

Our newest member of the royal family, Her Royal Highness Duchess Kate Middleton has become known for stealing Prince William's heart while at university and her modern yet simple fashion sense. For her beautiful engagement ring, Prince William gave her the same 18 carat oval-shaped sapphire ring that his late mother, Princess Diana wore because it was his way of keeping her apart of the experience. A thoughtful and sentimental gesture from a true Prince Charming. How romantic!

Which one of these engagement rings are your favourite? Let in know in the comments, Facebook and Twitter!
