It could be that perhaps the ring just fits her left hand better. My left hand fingers are slightly smaller than my right (I know it's weird) which makes wearing rings on my left hand more comfortable.

It looks a little like an Irish Claddagh ring. Here in the U.S., they were very popular with teenaged girls back when I was in high school. Depending on which hand you wore them on and which way you pointed them supposedly indicated whether you had a boyfriend, were going steady, etc.

Sounds complicated! Do you have an example picture of a Claddagh ring? So we can compare and contrast.

Wikipedia has a pretty good picture and explanation: Claddagh ring - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The Wiki entry describes how wearing it in different directions or on either hand symbolizes various relationship statuses, although I wouldn't read too much into that. IIRC, the girls in my school often disagreed about what it all meant, so Alexandra's friends may also understand that it means something entirely different from what Wikipedia says it does.

I think that it is popular here in the USA for teenagers to wear some kind of virginity ring - they promise to remain "pure" until marriage -
It is some kind of teen-age fad which is very popular now -

I've heard about that in the US, but never in Europe (and never here in the UK).

I think that may be more regional than national, because the teenagers in my area (East Coast) pretty much mock that stuff as being a very conservative, unsophisticated thing to do.

Not to mention that Princess Alexandra would probably not share things like that "with the world." And by wearing some kind of virginity ring she would kind of be sharing it.

That looks like it might be a nice ring, interesting information on the Claddagh Ring.

I agree that in Europe it's more common to wear engagment and wedding rings on the right hand as oppsed to the left hand in the US. So I think it's probably just an accessory.

I love the symbolism of the Claddaugh Ring! I have one and learn the "proper" way to wear it from the shop owner. I just have to shake my head though when I see people (such as my brother's ex) wearing the ring on their left hand with the heart facing out. What does that mean, other than ignorance of the significance of the ring?

Princess Alexandra in a tiara. Likely, for the first time. Same tiara recently worn by her cousin Arch Duchess Marie-Christine at her wedding late last year (from my viewing, anyway).

Pearls seem to be her favorite, and they look good on her! I wish she would get a pearl necklace with more than 1 row though! :)

This tiara looks more like a jeweled hairpiece to me, a little underwhelming IMO.
