FD IN FOCUS
The Story Behind
the Duchess of Cambridge's
Engagement Ring
In 1840, Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha commissioned
a sapphire and diamond cluster brooch for his bride-to-be, Queen
Victoria, from jeweler Gerrard. She loved it so much, she wore it on
her wedding dress and to many state functions throughout her
63 year reign. Before her passing, Queen Victoria bequeathed the
brooch as a Crown Heirloom; meaning it would always belong to the
reigning Monarch. Having oft seen his mother, Queen Elizabeth II,
wear the famed brooch, Prince Charles was quite familiar with the piece.
When the time came to propose to his first wife, Diana, the Prince chose
a familiar style in a 12-carat sapphire with diamond surround, from the
same British jeweler, Gerrard. After Diana's death, the ring was originally
passed to Prince Harry, whom gave it to his older brother when he saw how
very much in love with Kate Middleton Prince William was. The young Prince
proposed with the ring, stating "It was my way of making sure Mother
didn't miss out on today..."
