All you need to know about Meghan Markle's engagement ring

Appearing in an interview with the BBC in November 2017 with Meghan, Harry revealed that he included his late mother's diamonds "to make sure that she's with us on this crazy journey together."

Meghan commended the heart-warming approach, saying, "It's beautiful, and he designed it, it's incredible."

The duo exchanged vows in May 2018, and royal observers noticed a sparkling enhancement to the ring when Meghan and Harry welcomed their first child, Prince Archie, in May 2019.

The Duchess of Sussex seems to have had the trio of diamonds, which represents the past, present, and future, moved from the original solid yellow gold band to a thinner micro-pavé band, resulting in a modest modification.

Meghan is known for accessorising with jewelry, and she was pictured wearing a new piece, which once belonged to Princess Diana, during her Nigeria tour with the Duke.

Meghan frequently combines her engagement ring with her Welsh gold wedding ring and an eternity band, which her husband presented her on their anniversary in 2019. However, she sparked rumours by not wearing her engagement ring for several months, with many wondering why the gemstone was "missing."

The Duchess hit headlines in September 2023 when she was photographed without her engagement ring in Germany, where she arrived to attend the Invictus Games.

The ring was finally shown in January 2024 when the royal couple visited Jamaica to attend the premiere of Bob Marley: One Love.
