Royal Rocks: The Engagement Rings of Princess Brides
Prince Rainier III of Monaco originally proposed to Grace Kelly with a Cartier eternity band of rubies and diamonds. When he saw other leading ladies in Hollywood were flashing bigger rings, he quickly ordered this 10.5-carat emerald-cut diamond flanked by two baguettes, also from Cartier.

Prince Harry designed the ring that he used to propose to Meghan Markle, who won't be getting an official "princess" title. Harry worked with jeweler Cleave and Company, choosing a diamond from Botswana as the main stone and flanking it with two diamonds from Princess Diana's collection. “The ring is obviously yellow gold because that’s her favorite and the main stone itself I sourced from Botswana,” he said in an interview with BBC News. “The little diamonds on either side are from my mother’s jewelry collection to make sure that she’s with us on this crazy journey together.”
