Can anyone tell me anything about the ring George VI has on his right pinky finger in this photo? It looks to be some sort of signet ring, but whether it's a royal ring or just a non-ceremonial thing, I don't know.

From InStyle Magazine.
Royal Rocks: the Engagement Rings of Princess Brides : InStyle.com What's Right Now
Not very informative as it only features seven Anglophone brides.

William and Katherine

Am absolutely thrilled for them. May they have a long,strong and happy marriage! May they be blessed with healthy children! May they become King and Queen of England! May they retain their wonderful sense of humour! May Kate not be unfavourably compared with Diana! May the paperazzi not hound Kate as they did Diana.
Well done on the ring, it was and still is gorgeous.

I think that Kate's ring was set on another band. When Diana wore it, I think it was yellow gold, now it looks a white gold (or platinum) band.
I didn't see it on the pictures but in the interview they gave.

Definitely yellow gold!

Well, I think I was wrong, the band of Diana was also white gold.
But she wore her gold wedding ring next to it, that's why I was (we were) mistaken I guess:

I believe the Catherine's ring was not alter from when Diana wore it. The sapphire ring had actually been given to Harry. Many on the forums have mentioned and I know Diana left a lot of her personal jewelry and possessions to Harry because she knew that William would get access to lots of jewels and a sizable inheritance as the future king and she wanted to make sure the "spare" was well taken care of. Anyway, William asked Harry for the ring for Catherine and Harry agreed that the ring belonged to a future queen. Turns out, the ring fit her finger perfectly and did not even need to be re-sized!

I think that it is really sweet that Harry gave the ring to William to give to Catherine. It is the start of a very touching tradition. Maybe William and Catherine will give it to their eldest son/daughter for their bride/herself so the future Queens will have it as well...

Wonder where that story sprouted from. I remember that when Diana died there was a story that the boys went to her apartment before it was dismantled and took their pick. At the time it was stated that William chose that ring as a keepsake.

Did Queen Noor receive an engagement ring? I don't think I've ever seen a pic.

I love QMII's engagement ring. Those two huge diamonds are to die for. I love the big and bold. Wonder who will inherit that nice bauble?? I also think that Princess Letizia's engagement ring is quite different, very modern for an engagement ring. And as far as traditional rings, I adore Camilla's ring that was the Queen Mother's. The ring is stunning.

I have seen Queen Noor, in a picture wearing a hugh round diamond ring. Don't remember which hand she was wearing in on. But I thought it was engagement/wedding wedding ring.

No she never received an engagement ring. Her wedding ring is a simple gold band.

I have never seen Queen Elizabeth´s ring, does anyone a pic?
