Discover each famous royal engagement ring and heirloom jewellery. We round up our very own Fenton matches if you're dreaming of sporting your own regal lookalike piece!
Queen Elizabeth the II's Engagement Ring
Regal in every way with a sprinkling of side detail, Queen Elizabeth’s engagement ring marked a happy royal marriage that lasted 74 years.
Do you adore Queen Elizabeth's ring? Our stunning Solar Diamond and Diamond Trefoil makes for the perfect choice.
The glistening Round Solar Diamond has a GH V/S quality rating and is framed on either side by a trefoil cluster of three 1.8mm round brilliant cut Diamond stones, each securely held into place in a claw setting.
The design draws the eye to the glistening Solar Diamond centre stone, sitting proudly in a classic open gallery setting crafted from solid Platinum. The open setting of this design allows the light to reflect in all directions, creating a lustrous and sparkling look.
Princess Diana & Princess of Wales' Engagement Ring
Arguably the most famous engagement ring in the world, this Sapphire beauty has been worn by two iconic royal women. It was made famous by Princess Diana, former Princess of Wales and is now worn by Catherine (Kate) Middleton, the current Princess of Wales and future Queen Consort.
Both our Blue Sapphire Vintage and Blue Sapphire Star rings have been popular style choices for our customers who wanted to emulate this iconic ring. And we can see why!
The Vintage is a regal style that is designed to be a modern heirloom, to be treasured for generations to come. Your center Blue Sapphire stone is set on a sparkling cushion on G/H colour and VS clarity diamonds, allowing the light catch from all directions.
The Star is a celestial design, which features an outer three claw setting that gives this design the elegant ‘star’ aesthetic, making it a real sparkling showstopper. The Star is wed-fit with a basket-style gallery and can comfortably be worn with a wedding band or stacked with other bands.
Princess Anne's Engagement Ring
Princess Anne has a great fondness for Blue Sapphires and has chosen a round Trilogy setting for her engagement ring. This striking but practical style is perfect for the stalwart and stately Royal.
Create your own Blue Sapphire Trilogy ring with Fenton. Proof that three isn't always a crowd, our Blue Sapphire Trilogy Ring unites a sparkling center stone with two surrounding Diamonds each set in a secure claw setting. Your ring is set in a simple yet elegant gallery feeding smoothly into a sleek and simple band.
Princess Margaret's Engagement Ring
Princess Margaret was known for her fiery and passionate disposition, making a Ruby engagement ring in a unique design to match her quirky personality simply perfect for her.
We absolutely love our Ruby Garland, which has a similar and sparkling design to Princess Margaret's unique ring.
Princess Diana & Duchess of Sussex Cocktail Ring
The Duchess of Sussex caused a splash at her wedding reception when she sported a striking Aquamarine cocktail ring that had previously belonged to Princess Diana.
If you love this look, our Aquamarine Solitaire ring with a Pavé band is the perfect match. Timelessness with a twist, our Solitaire brings a pop of colour to your life with the Aquamarine. Aquamarines are the March birthstone, which is a talisman for protection and fearlessness.
Princess Eugenie Engagement Ring
The Royals' love of colourful precious gemstones has truly been inherited by the next generation. Princess Eugenie has been shown happily sporting a beautiful cluster ring with a Pink Sapphire centre stone.
Inspired by the antique Georgian designs of the 18th century, the Pink Sapphire Mayfair is Fenton’s modern take on the classic cluster.
Your sparkling Pink Sapphire is framed by a halo of twelve brilliant round-cut GH/VS diamonds and sits proudly on wedfit cathedral-tapered shoulders to allow it to sit flush with your wedding band. Crafted using 18K Yellow Gold with an intricate petal-shaped gallery, this design draws in light to interact and shine through your centre stone.
The Duchess of Sussex's Engagement Ring
The Duke of Sussex himself designed Meghan Markle's diamond sparkler! The Duchess of Sussex's engagement ring is a Diamond cushion cut Trilogy with a classic gold band, making it an understated and timeless look.
Get the look with our Solar Diamond and Diamond Trilogy ring! Proof that three isn't always a crowd, our Solar Diamond Trilogy Ring unites a sparkling Solar Diamond center stone with two surrounding Diamond each set in a secure claw setting and complimenting the exquisite sparkle of your Solar Diamond stone. Your Cushion Solar Diamond stone has a GH V/S quality rating and is set in a simple yet elegant gallery feeding smoothly into a sleek band.
Pearl Earrings & Necklaces
If there’s one jewel that all Royal women love, it’s the Pearl! Pearls are the perfect cool foil to a formal look to elevate the everyday outfit.
Pearls are a stunning choice if you wish to look elegant and refined without being overstated, making them the ideal styling choice for a group of women who represent the past, present and future of the British monarchy.
