Congrats to Princess Beatrice! (Picture: PA)

Congratulations are in order for Princess Beatrice, as its been officially announced shes engaged to her boyfriend of a year, property tycoon Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.

Weve looked at the photos, worked out where her dress is from, and now its time to look at the ring.

No shaming, please.

Sadly, Princess Beatrice isnt like your average influencer, and thus has not made Princess Eugenie tag the creator of the engagement ring in all the photos.

There hasnt been an official statement about where the ring is from or what it all ~means~ (its massive, which symbolises that their love… is big?), but its thought the massive diamond sparkler was designed by Edoardo in collaboration with British jewellery designer, Shaun Leane.

That means its custom, so not something you can just grab from your nearest jewellery shop – although dupes are likely already on the way.



The ring is a pretty classic design, in contrast to Eugenies engagement ring which had more of a kitschy vintage vibe.

The band is made of white gold with a large (but not obscenely big, thankfully) central diamond, in a traditional setting style held in place with six claws. Look closely and youll spot some side baguette-cut diamonds, known as shoulders.

As youd expect from a ring for a royal, a bit of jewellery with massive diamonds is likely to be quite expensive. Princess Beatrice hasnt been gauche enough to brag about the price tag, but wed reckon anyone after that ring would be looking at paying more than £70,000.

Tobias Kormind, managing director of 77Diamonds.com, said: Princess Beatrices ring is a beautiful 3.5 carat round diamond, of medium quality, set in an art deco design, with tapered baguettes on each side of the centre side.

I would value this ring at £60,000.

Unlike Kate and Eugenie, who were given coloured gemstones, Edoardo has gone for a more modern engagement ring with a diamond, like Harry for Meghan.

But while Meghan was given a cushion cut diamond, an older but more trendy diamond shape, Beatrice has been given the most popular and brightest diamond, a round, accompanied by a pair of tapered baguettes, which creates a very art deco look, which is very on trend as we are coming up to the 100 year anniversary of art deco and it is set to be the trend for 2020.



More details on the ring will be added to this article as we get em.

As part of his probation, he was allowed to travel to the UK for work – but he floutRead More – Source
