What to Know Before Requesting a Replica of Meghan’s Ring
Type "Meghan Markle's engagement ring" into Pinterest, and you'll find yourself in a deep, deep photographic hole. As soon as Prince Harry popped the question, all eyes were (and still are) on her pretty sparkler. For the ladies out there who are waiting for their SOs to ask for their hands in marriage, Meghan's ring can often be used as a source of inspiration for the gifted jewelry. Or, if you're a devout fan of the royals, you could, in theory, get her exact ring. How? One way is to design it yourself with engagement ring companies like Engage Studio.
You show them a photo of the ring you want, and they will walk you through the process. Then, if you want, they can send a replica of your ring before you actually buy the real thing. When I met up with the cofounder of Engage Studio, Ji Song, he confirmed customers do inquire about Meghan's ring and said the look of it is relatively easy to re-create. The starting cost to design Meghan's exact ring is in general, wait for it . . . about $20,000. (Obviously the price and backstory to your ring would be entirely different than Meghan's.)
Meghan's center stone is a diamond from Botswana, while the two smaller side stones are from Prince Harry's personal collection, given to him by Princess Diana.
