Princess Eugenie with her now husband Jack Brooksbank and a close up of her stunning pink sapphire engagement ring.
The wedding of Princess Eugenie made news across the world last week, as royal wedding fans tuned into to watch the princess’ nuptials. Anticipation had been building for the royal wedding ever since their engagement announcement earlier this year, which was accompanied by portraits of Princess Eugenie and her now husband Jack Brooksbank. The portraits showed the happy couple together and gave the public their first look at the princess’ incredible pink sapphire engagement ring.

Princess Eugenie’s engagement ring features a gorgeous oval shaped pink sapphire that’s estimated to weigh around three carats. The soft pink gemstone is surrounded by a unique halo made of a mixture of pear and round shaped white diamonds, which gives the piece a distinctive look. The featured gemstones are complimented by a beautiful mixed metal band crafted out of yellow and white gold.

Fans of the royal family were quick to point out that Princess Eugenie’s engagement ring appears to be remarkably similar to the engagement ring worn by her mother, the Duchess of York, which adds a sentimental touch. Both feature a pink sapphire surrounded by a diamond halo, though there are some differences in the halo shape. Princess Eugenie’s engagement ring halo features a mixture of round and pear shaped diamonds, while her mother’s features only pear shaped diamonds.

The princess’ engagement ring shows the continuation of sapphires as a royal engagement tradition. Her mother’s engagement ring also features a sapphire as does, of course, Kate Middleton’s inherited blue sapphire engagement ring which once belonged to Princess Diana.

At her wedding, Princess Eugenie paired her engagement ring with some famous crown jewels. She wore the Grenville Emerald tiara, on loan from her grandmother Queen Elizabeth, which features an incredible 97.70 emerald at its peak.
