‘Very special’ Kate Middleton made subtle alteration to Princess Diana’s engagement ring




KATE MIDDLETON wears her engagement ring all the time but before she could, she had to have it altered.



Kate Middleton was given a beautiful ring from Prince William when he asked her to marry him back in November 2010. The royal couple then wed in April 2011 and have been happily married for over 10 years. The ring itself was Princess Diana’s own engagement ring from Prince Charles and before Kate wore it she had it altered slightly


When Prince Charles proposed to Lady Diana Spencer in 1981, the engagement rig matched the glamour of the young couple.



In terms of the ring, Diana selected it herself – apparently because it reminded her of her mother’s engagement ring, and also matched her eyes.
As a special token to his mother, Prince William decided to use the icon ring to propose to Kate.



Since he got down on one knee, the Duchess of Cambridge always wears the beautiful engagement ring, but before she could, she had to have it resized.



The ring is designed with an exquisite Garrard 12-carat Ceylon sapphire in the centre.Sapphires are also thought to represent loyalty and trust.The large blue jewel is surrounded by 14 solitaire diamonds, all set in white gold.


As for how the ring was resized, it has been widely reported the ring was adjusted by Garrard.They did this by adding small platinum beads into the band to reduce its diameter, instead of breaking and resoldering the band itself.



As for what Kate thought about the ring when she was presented with it by Prince William, she said during the official engagement interview: “It’s beautiful–I hope I look after it. It’s very special.”



When Prince William was asked why he chose his mother’s ring to propose with, he responded: “It was my way of making sure my mother didn’t miss out on today, and the excitement.



“And the fact that we’re going to spend the rest of our lives together.”
