Does anybody know what stones are in Laetizia's ring? Are they aquamarines with diamonds in platinum?

Letizia wears a 16 Begettes diamond ring sided on each side with a trim of white gold.

For those who wanted to see Queen Rania's ring, I think this is it. I could be mistaken though.

It says the ring is a 2 carat diamond surrounded by two cabochon rubies. I wonder what a cabochon ruby looks like.
Beebee,
This is what a cabochon ruby looks like-

Very nice find with Lady Sarah Chatto's ring, Fireweaver. I hadn't ever seen her ring before. I like her setting a lot, although I'm not quite as convinced with the weaving pattern around the band.

Sorry don't know that, but, that is a stunning ring..... oh so beautiful..... Puts some of the other royal wedding/engagment rings (not putting then down) to shame in a way. Not to put them down.....

Here's a picture of the ring that Prince Gustav zu-Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg gave to Elvire when he was engaged to her in 2001. It's quite large! I hope she gave it back to him!

I hope she gave it back, too! That would be a very valuable piece! Was the ring he gave her from the Berleburg family or have any historical significance at all?

My vote for most interesting ring goes to Clothilde's ring of hearts. I just think it interesting that the heart is facing a left or right direction, instead of facing Clothilde or facing the person who would be shaking or kissing her hand.

IMO diamonds and platinum go with everything. Diamonds are far less valuable, though, than rubies (most rare) or sapphires or emeralds. Maybe that is why royals wear the colored stones.

Is platinum a popular metal for rings in Europe or other places? It is here in the US. And it is really durable. You can smack your ring in a file cabinet and it will come out okay. One's finger, maybe not come out okay. :P

Clotilde's ring is really special. The design, materials and work seem to be superb. I guess, I too would vote for her ring.

You are right, Paulina, in that the top quality rubies (over two carat stones of best "pigeon blood" colour, no visible inclusions, excellent cut) are (usually) more valuable than white diamonds of good quality but the rest of the coloured stones sapphires and emeralds are (usually) less expensive. Of course there are always exceptions in gemmology. That's why the "usuallys"

Platinum is nice in that sense that it is white when white gold alloys have sometimes colour problems after the rhodium plating is worn off. Platinum gets though more easily scratched than the average white gold alloys - the surface of platinum rings get this silky patina but it actually looks quite nice. I wouldn't call platinum harder but somehow sturdier metal. Some goldsmiths have described finishing a platinum piece (which means the polishing) like trying to polish tar. Difficult.

Platinum is interesting people more and more here in Northern Europe, but usually the customers are surprised when they hear how expensive it is compared to other precious metals.

Very nice!

Actually Letizia's engagement ring reminds me of Mary's wedding ring... diamonds all around.

What does letizia's wedding ring look like (perhaps wrong topic though).

Letizia's engagement ring is very plain - it's lovely more like a wedding band. Does anyone know how big the diamonds are?
