I like Mary's ring. It's lovely combination od diamond and ruby (?)
But I don't know which ring is the most beautiful.

Royal Engagement Rings

Everyone knows, for example, what the late Princess Diana's engagement ring looked like, but I've never seen a close up picture of HM The Queen's. I'd also like to see others like The Princess Royal's (1st & 2nd). Does anyone out there have any pics of these and other royal ladies' bejewelled ring fingers?

I don't particularly like these images but they are the best I could find on the Queen's engagement ring and the bracelet that Philip gave her:

Yellow and white diamonds, I can see, and I'm guessing the metal is platinum- It's not yellow gold, and I can't imagine they'd use white gold. (which is a lower quality and cheaper replacement for platinum, usually)

I love Maxima's engagement ring, it looks amazing on her finger, not the most traditional one, but one of a kind, just like her

One person asked a few pages back if there is such a thing as a wedding band. Yes, it is also a name for the wedding ring. In the US it is common for a woman to wear both the engagement ring and wedding band. Some only wear one.

A traditional engagement ring is usually considered a round single diamond stone ring.

Looks little similar to her earrings and necklace, I think.

At the recent sale of Princess Margaret's things, I noticed that among the jewels for sale were some spectacular rings. Notably, a ruby and diamond ring that had belonged to Queen Mary. Looking at most of the royal portraits you don't often see royals wearing interesting and important rings other than their wedding/ engagement rings. I am looking for photos of rings that would be important in royal collections or are just more than ordinary.

Do many of the men, (and women) still wear signet rings? I know that a hundred or more years ago, they were very common among British nobility, but I wondered if the current royal men (and women) wear them too?

Prince Charles has one with the Prince of Wales feathers, which he wears most of the time.

What are the Prince of Wales feathers? And can you please post a photo of the ring? Because I'm not familiar with it (it's not normally Charles's ring I'm checking out- it's his wives' rings I'm more familiar with)

I think most royals still wear signet rings. Or, what I've noticed is that alot of royals, especially the British royals, wear rings on their pinkies. Not so much the younger royals, at leat not yet.

There's a photo of Prince Charles's ring here.

You can see a copy of the ring, in better detail, here.

The Prince of Wales feathers is the heraldic badge used by Princes of Wales. If you look at Prince Charles's website you can see it at the top of the page.

http://www.princeofwales.gov.uk/

The Wikipedia page about it is here.

Charles had one made for Diana too, and I think Camilla has one as well. Andrew and Edward also have signet rings though I'm not sure what's on them and I remember that Andrew had one made for Sara as well.

Thanks Elspeth for the quick response! Is his ring also made of the Welsh gold like his wedding bands?

And what did he do with his wedding band from his marriage to Princess Diana?
