I've seen photographic portraits of QEII wearing the smaller ships from the Koh-i-nor (spelling?) diamonds. I think the pic I'm thinking of is in the Suzy Menkes Royal Jewellery books.

QEII actually wears rarely, the Cullinam IX in a ring.
Of late I have observed The Queen wearing rings on 4 fingers sometimes. 2 on one hand and 2 on the other. Of coarse, the left hand has the wedding ring and engagement ring, but at times, I have seen a sapphire ring, and also a ruby ring. Photos donot show these rings clearly enough to try and identify them. Pity

Clothilde of Savoy

I've been looking for Clothilde of Savoy's engagement ring, in the past thread I couldn't open the websites.

Any pictures that can be post in this new thread?

I like Letizia's engagement ring, the eternity band altough it looks more like a wedding band but still beautiful.

I was looking through a book of portraits of the Queen Mum. She is pictured several times with a large pearl ring. There is also a beautiful portrait of her by Savely Sorine, when she was Duchess of York and she is wearing what appears to be a large saphire or Emerald ring with diamonds around it- I wonder if that was her engagement ring? I couldn't find pictures of her wearing it anywhere else.

Dear Qui Maly pense, I think I can answer your question: In the Sorine portrait the Queen Mum is wearing her engagement ring which was a large sapphire but sometime in the 30's she decided to start wearing a large oriental pearl surrounded by diamonds, instead. I would love to know why and where did her engagement ring go? Also there is no real clear photo of the sapphire ring and I would really like to see it. Everytime I see a picture of the Queen Mum as the Duchess of York from the twenties it seems as though her left hand is always obscured in some way Can anyone help me our with a photo? It would end years of frustration for me!

Question: I had heard that the engagment ring Camilla got from Charles was the Queen Mum's engagment ring...not true then?

I thought Camilla's engagement ring was the ring that King George gave the Queen Mother when Charles was born (but I may be very wrong) but I know it was given to mark an important occasion, but it was not her engagement ring.

Rachel D, I know that the Queen Mum's original engagement ring was a sapphire and there are some pictures where it is very blurry but you can see it is a colored stone. Not sure of the provenance of Camilla's ring, I thought it was a gift to the QM from Ronnie Greville but don't hold me to that!

I read elsewhere that the ring was a gift from the Duke of York to the Duchess of York when it was confirmed she was pregnant [with Princess Elizabeth].
Which begs the question, if she received this whopping diamond for being pregnant, what did she receive for giving birth?

You shall write to Mr.William Shawcross as soon as possible. After all he is the official biography for Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. Now I realise how romantic the story Camilla's engagement ring has.I just love it!

OOPS! I said Charles' birth, but that was wrong. Warren, thank you for correcting me--it was Princess Elizabeth! And, I would love to know what she got for the birth!
And, I love that Camilla's ring has such a beautiful heritage behind it. She must know she is truly loved by Charles.

It is a Ceylon Blue Saphire as a center stone, and 2 diamond trillions.
