Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall: Royal’s “Art Deco” engagement ring was a “glittering stone”
Camilla’s five-carat emerald-cut diamond with baguettes on the side gets around 1,800 searches a year, according to Google Trends data. Camilla’s Art Deco inspired ring gives the Duchess of Cornwall a sleek and stylish look. The ring formerly belonged to Prince Charles’ grandmother, the Queen Mother, who wore it in the 1980s.
According to Kathryn Money, VP of Strategy and Merchandising at Brilliant Earth, it would have cost roughly Â£ 78,000.
Prince Charles and Camilla were married at Windsor Guildhall in 2005.
Charlotte White, head of design at Europe’s largest online diamond jeweler 77 Diamonds, spoke exclusively to Express.co.uk about Camilla’s engagement ring and its sentimental value.
Charlotte said, âWhen Prince Charles dropped to one knee and asked Camilla to marry him in 2005, he did so with a clean, modern, sumptuous diamond engagement ring.
âMore reminiscent of the geometric, bold lines of today’s young fashionistas, as opposed to the classic and opulent oval and diamond halo of Princess Diana’s sapphire ring, it was passed down to him from the Queen Mother, who was first pictured, who wore it in the 1980s.

âAlthough the royal household never revealed its date of creation or the reason for its commissioning, they called it the family heirloom, which suggests a certain depth of history.
âSome speculate that the ring was actually made to celebrate the 1926 birth of Queen Elizabeth II.
âThe ring itself is an Art Deco piece and features five carat emerald cut diamonds.
âEmerald cut diamonds are rectangular in shape with cut corners.
DO NOT MISS:
Despite getting married almost 17 years ago, about 150 people search Google for Camilla’s dress every month.
While her wedding attire wasn’t as popular as Meghan Markle or Kate Middleton, on the day of her wedding ceremony with Prince Charles, Camilla actually wore two wedding dresses to celebrate the occasion.
In addition to the civil ceremony, the couple had a religious blessing and formal reception at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor that same day.
This enabled Camilla to change outfits quickly.
First, Camilla wore a cream-colored silk chiffon dress for the civil ceremony.
It had a hem of appliquÃ©d discs made in Switzerland and a matching oyster silk coat created by London-based designers Robinson Valentine.
For the blessing in St. George’s Chapel, she put on another beautiful dress by the same designer.
She wore a light blue chiffon dress with an embroidered light blue and gold coat over it.
