ICYMI, Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are engaged! The couple announced the news on Sept. 26 through a Duke of York official statement. They also shared photographs taken by Beatrice’s sister Eugenie, which show a close-up view of the sparkling engagement ring. If the photos leave you wishing for a similar rock, there are tons of engagement rings that look like Princess Beatrice's without necessarily breaking the bank.
The ring is really something special — it’s a round-cut diamond on a silver band, with two large diamonds baguettes on either side. It was created by British designer Shaun Leane, and the best part? Edoardo played an active role in the ring’s creation. The designer shared details of the process in an Instagram post, writing, “I am so honoured Edoardo chose to work with me to design the engagement ring for Princess Beatrice and to have been involved in this special moment in their lives. The bespoke experience was a beautiful journey; from imagining the design with Edoardo to the crafting of the finished rings. Being able to incorporate both Edoardo and Princess Beatrice’s characters into the design has resulted in a unique ring that represents their love and lives entwining.” The designer further explained that the ring is a “fusion of Victorian and Art Deco designs” and comes with two additional matching bands.
It’s a seriously stunning ring, but it doesn’t come cheap — Leane’s other engagement rings cost anywhere between $4,000 and $20,000 (and those aren’t even custom-made). Thankfully, you can copy this style without spending that much… here are a few of the most glamorous replicas.
