I've been reading this thread i would like to add my two cents on the subject ( my first post!). I read that her engagement ring was a sapphire one but on so many pictures i've seen of her, it looks more like a large pearl. That bothered me very much. But it looks like everyone agrees that she had two.
I noticed that she rarely ever worn the sapphire one again after the birth of Princess Margaret (I could be wrong about the timeline but pretty sure it was sometimes before she was queen). She did not seem to like it. I wonder where it is now. I would love to see it in color so am eagerly await for its future reappearance!
- The sapphire still there
- Then replaced by the pearl ring
Before I thought Duchess of Cornwall's ring was a third of her engagement rings (how many she had here for one husband!
) but you guys have proven me wrong. Somebody here said it was an anniversary gift from the King I should like to try and dig further as to what anniversary so please stay tuned!
I would also like to point out, not sure if anyone noticed this, that although she alternated between the three rings on social occasions she never took off her gold wedding ring as you can see on these pictures here.
- Is that the one Charles gave Camilla? and the wedding ring
- The pearl and the wedding ring
- On rare occasion, only the gold wedding ring
