Princess Eugenie’s ring features a rare pink Padparadscha sapphire, surrounded by a halo of sparkling diamonds.
Interestingly, Princess Eugenie also opted for a sapphire ring, however not a traditional blue sapphire.
She opted for a padparadscha sapphires, because they are are incredibly rare, much rarer than diamonds and many blue sapphires.
Jewellery expert Maxwell Stone said: “These are extremely rare stones which many people haven’t even heard of.
“They are strikingly beautiful with unique shades of pink and orange, often resembling the colours of a sunset.”
“This is by far one of the rarest gemstones in the world, thanks to its unparalleled salmon hue,” she continued to say.
The ring bares a remarkable resemblance to Eugenie’s mother, Sarah Ferguson’s engagement ring, which features a Burmese ruby, surrounded by diamonds.
