Someone mentioned on one of the earlier pages, and I agree, that it seems to be a very "European" thing to give coloured gems on engagement rings. In Canada, you rarely see anything but diamond rings...if you want to be really, really different, you'd give an engagement ring set w/ another stone - but in Europe (or is it just amongst royalty?), it seems par for the course to give a ring w/ another stone.
In the USA it also seems to be popular to have just a diamond ring, often a solitaire of some sort. In the UK at any rate, all sorts of stones are popular. You can find coloured stones in the USA, but diamond-only ones do seem to be the most common.

Probably because it was Inaki who went with Felipe to purchase Letizia's ring in Barcelona. Maybe it was his suggestion?

I like the shape of the stones in Camilla's ring, but the diamonds look almost black. I don't know if it's because of the setting or something else.

Really?! Why? If I were a future bride-to-be (now I am still too young), I would prefer to know, that my fiance had bought my ring himself, it would be more romantic. Maybe Felipe first had chosen the ring in some magazine or sth like that and then Inaki just bought it, because of living in Barcelona.

i noticed most of the wings are worn on the left hand, but i also saw picture where people wore it on right hand, does it mean different things when you wear it on the right hand??

I think it's a cultural difference only. I know that the Spanish women wear their engagement and wedding rings on the right hand while the other royal ladies wear them on the left hand. Sometimes they separate the engagement and wedding rings by wearing one on each hand. It might be just preference.

It might have something to do with religion; I noticed that Belgium and Spain wore their rings on the right hand.

And may I ask how do you know that?
It seems quite nonsense to me, that the engagement ring given by Felipe was something you can buy in a common department store... and moreover that it was bought by his brother-in-law... really it sounds like another crazy story published by gossip magazines...

Well, Elsa, I understand you can find this quite nonsense, taking account of all that silly stuff from the media, but you have to know that…

-First: The engagement ring given by Felipe to Letizia could be bought in the Suarez's, expensive but accessible shops in Madrid and Barcelona.

-Second: Iñaki bought the ring that, obviously, was chosen previously by Felipe...

-Third: In addition, we have to think that when the ring was bought nobody knew still about the engagement so it would had been very suspicious if Felipe would had bought the ring...


And here and article about that from ABC, a Spanish newspaper considered to be quite serious. (http://www.abc.es/informacion/boda/compromiso/03.asp)

MADRID. Once again the tradition has changed. If in the engagements of the Infantas Elenas Cristina the exchange of gifts consisted in a clock of a Swiss mark and a ring, this time Letizia Ortiz has preferred choosing a cuff-links of white gold and sapphire of the Suárez Company, which she bought herself in the jeweller’s shop in Madrid last Tuesday. Felipe has chosen the classic alliance of white gold and diamonds. The gifts are two exclusive pieces of Suárez design whose price on the market would be about 250.000 pesetas (the cuff-links) and 500.000 pesetas, the alliance, which was bought this week in Suárez's in Barcelona where Felipe's brother-in-law, Iñaki Urdangarín went to entrust this gift (these days the Infanta Cristina was with a stomach problem). The couple have chosen two presents that might be called as normal, with modern designs and with average prices.


With all this maybe you can find that information about Iñaki buying the engagement ring less nonsense but anyway… I repeat you that I understand your opinion. And well… Only Felipe and Letizia know who was the one who bought the ring, no matter what media say…

Some of the Engagement Rings (like the Brunei Royals) must have cost a fortune (or they are priceless!)! I don't know if I would want to have the pressure of wearing a ring like that on my shoulders. What would happen if something happened to the ring . But all of the rings are really nice. I wonder if a lot of the Crown Princesses helped pick the ring out or the design or did the future husbands to be pick them out by themselves?

I like Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's ring. Beautiful 3 diamond ring made from diamonds in Princess Alice of Battenberg's collection. Quite nice and not overbearing!! I like Sophie's ring too--Edward did a great job on that.

I had a copy made of Diana, Princess of Wales' engagement ring!!
