Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us and I am all about love, romance, proposals and misplacing my glasses. I can never find my glasses. But enough about me. Recently in the news we have been subjected to engagement rings worth a little more than the average person earns in their lifetime. Enter Mariah Carey and Jerry Hall. Oh, there are more to be sure. But walk with me as we discover the engagement rings of yesteryear. You are welcome.
Pictured below is Jackie Kennedy’s engagement ring. It has 2 main stones and surrounded by marquise cut diamonds. It has an estimated value of $1.39 million dollars.
Next we have Princess Grace. I have always thought she was so effortlessly beautiful. Am sure I am not alone in thinking this. Her engagement ring is stunning and features a 10.47 emerald cut diamond. It has an estimated value of $4.3 million dollars.
Next we have Queen Elizabeth. She met her husband when she was just 13 years old at the wedding of his cousin, Princess Marina of Greece. The engagement ring has a rather elegant design and features a 3 carat cut brilliant cut diamond.
Next we have Liz Taylor’s engagement ring. I will let the pictures do all the talking.
And of course… we have our Kate. I mean, the Duchess of Cambridge. I think we all know the history of her engagement ring.
Notice she does not have any split-ends? Please let me be a Princess in my NEXT life.
