Iím sorry but I find Eugenieís ring really really ugly. Meghanís is nicer, IMO, but itís super boring and uninspirering as well.

I like this ring. I have always been a fan of padparadscha sapphires.

I learned only today with Eugenie's ring the existence of these stunning sapphires

I don't like the color of Eug's stone, but I think the setting/design is very pretty.

Call me crazy, but the only British engagement ring I like is HMís. Everyone elseís...not quite. Not to say the rings arenít pretty, just not what I would have picked.

I don't know why but Eugenie's ring reminds me of Diana's/Kate's ring Confused Confused

At first I thought it was Fergie's engagement ring actually.



I love padparadscha sapphires!

I love Camilla's ring.

Meghan's ring his simple and classic, but boring. I thought Harry would put more thought into the ring.

Eugenie's looks like costume jewelry.

Kate's is too big.

I like the Saphire, but wouldn't have picked such a dated setting. But I got the feeling, this is what she likes and then it is perfect for her.

The royals don't do this, but I am seeing a disturbing trend elsewhere: as the years of marriage go by, some women are demanding that the size of the diamond in their engagements rings be increased. I have one friend whose 3/4 carat diamond has been upscaled twice and now it's a whopping five carats.  This trend seems to me to undercut  the romantic symbolism of the original engagement ring. What do you think?

First of all, I wonder what people you know - 5 carat ring? That would be worth well above 200 K, depending on color and clarity.
Besides that, this size really HUGE on the finger - would one like to wear such a whopper daily?
I mean, the Cullinan IV ring has "only" 4.4 carats ...


I've read recently that there is this trend, yes. I cannot understand the idea. An engagement ring is - normally - given at an early stage of being together, and it is a symbol, a gift given as a promise, a milestone in the relationsship. For sure the groom must be able to afford it as well. But it's still a symbol, a memory, that should not be altered.
If there is a wish to get a more "valuable" stone later, after some time together, why not just buy another ring for the new milestone reached and wear them both proudly?

Plus: Love cannot be measured by ring stone sizes. I would rather die than to "demand" a bigger stone.

Oh I don't like the idea of this at all!   No

It very much reminds me of Mary's engagement ring later 'representing' each child with added diamonds.  I didn't like that either.  Certainly, have an eternity ring or a piece of jewellery to signify your children (like Maxima's initials bangle), but upscaling the engagement ring itself looks like you simply wanted a bigger engagement ring in the first place.
