Meghan Markle’s Engagement Ring: Where to Find a Cheaper Option on the High Street

If you don't have £50,000 like Prince Harry to spend on an engagement ring, we've rounded up some cheaper - but spitting image - sparklers!


Meghan Markle has undoubtedly set a trend in engagement rings for years to come with the beautiful diamond trilogy ring given to her by Prince Harry.


Trilogy rings are a particularly romantic and meaningful choice for an engagement as they represent past, present and future, and Harry’s was extra sentimental as he designed it himself using two gems from his late mother’s personal collection.

According to David Allen from 77 Diamonds, Meghan’s ring had two round diamonds supporting a 2.5ct cushion cut diamond in the centre. The stones were set in white gold within a yellow gold band.

“A ring of this size and quality would start at around £50,000 but with the use of the late Princess Diana’s diamonds as side stones, this ring, like Kate’s before it, is of inestimable worth,” he said.

If you’re in search of a diamond that looks just like Meghan’s, but without the hefty price tag, we’ve rounded up some of the most gorgeous choices on the high street.


Recreate the look with Beaverbrooks’ 18ct Gold Diamond Three Stone Ring, which costs £3,250.
