Of course a person has to have a certain amount of disposable income to get into eternity rings etc....and a desire to wear more rings. I think the birthstone/kids rings are more affordable though..seems like I saw them a couple years ago when one of my girls was looking at wedding sets.

In the UK, eternity bands tend to be given after 7 years of marriage or after the birth of a child. Most tend to be diamonds only, though not exclusively so!

I am aware of that. I was saying if that was not the case, proposing an alternate reality that the ring had been claimed by Harry, and Kate had to have a new ring. My point was if she had to have a new ring, would she choose a huge clunking stone or something more streamline?? IMO something more streamline, based on her jewelry tastes. She loves her ring IMO because of who it belonged to, the sentiment, more then the actual ring.

That, IMO, is in the realm of pure speculation!

Isnt that what we do on this and every thread, speculate

Unless you have insider information, anything is speculation. Notice I stated IMO more then once. I never stated it as fact. I thought that was what we are here for, to discus. Perhaps I am wrong. It is my Opinion, based on her personal taste in jewelry she has worn since marriage.

To claim she loves it is also 'pure' speculation. We just don't know, but we do know her taste and style, and from that one can make reasonable guesses regarding affinities, which I think is being done. Nothing the poster floated is beyond the pale of reasonable possibility. IMO. It's a high status ring because of it's associations. It may be 'loved' for that alone, not because it's a 'pretty ring' and a ring one would pick out oneself for oneself. She may be wearing it solely to please her husband. We don't know.

I don't believe I was either doubting your opinion, or that it was your opinion. My statement was just a statement of fact which in itself is not inconsistent with your opinion. So all in all, not sure I see a reason for the rather defensive comments from you!

I don't believe I have suggested either way as to whether Catherine likes her ring or not. As you say later in the post, we just don't know!

Could not agree more with you!
