Do you mean the engagement ring that Tony Armstrong-Jones gave her? He designed for her a ruby set like a rosebud with a diamond marguerite it was a play on her name Margaret Rose.

When it comes to Germany engagement rings are not very common anymore and often (just as the term engagement itself) considered oldfashioned. Most couples, who decide to have an engagement ring, both partners will wear a simple silver band (like those: http://www.eheringe-shop.de/images/medium/p6226792.jpg ). At the moment it is quite fashionable to have a little diamond in the woman's ring. At least all young couples, i know, who had an engagement, had rings similar to those on the picture.
But of course there are couples with classic "Tiffany" Engagement Rings (Solitaire-Diamond in White Gold oder Silver) or Gemstones.
Traditional, i think, simple silver bands were the most common and secondly rings with any kind of gemstone. My mom had an Ring (Gold) with a Ruby.

Wedding rings are tradtional just gold. Today they are often of silver, white gold or platinum or they have diamonds on it. As a wedding band i would prefer a very simple golden one (like this one: 4.bp.blogspot.com/_1W8ojV5aekQ/RsGMubzbGjI/AAAAAAAAANg/Zo_wp1rnERI/s1600-h/Eheringe.JPG



I personally like Mary's engagement ring best, as it is not to big and very straight-lined. Victoria's ring is also very nice, but i would prefer something more individual. The one from Princess Caroline with Junot (Saphire with diamonds) is also very nice.

Marie's ring has to much on it (florid, overcrowed) with a very wide golden band plus 3 different colors. Mette's and Mathilde's rings are absolutely not my taste. (Mathilde's because it is so wide and hast different types of metal http://www.ppe-agency.com/preview.php?start=645&id=2452&zoektype=0&search=mathilde )

Yes I think it symbolized for both of them, their 2 children.

Trinity rings are symbols of love. Not kids. In many upper classes they were symbols of preengagement rings. Also, they are given for anniversary.

The rings do seem to go with what I think of her - colourful, though little substance!

Royal wedding rings

Why do royal and aristocratic husbands wear their wedding rings on their little fingers instead of the proper wedding ring fingers?
