I just don’t get the feeling they are going to get married. 

I suppose if they get engaged it’s pretty much set but I don’t know, I just can’t see them together long term like wills and Catherine.

anyway as far as rings, maybe something repurposed from an heirloom with an antique-y feel.

nfran :  I’d love to see her wearing an emerald or a ruby ring. Diamonds are lovely but a huge flawless/almost flawless gemstone with beautiful color saturation and cut would be amazing!

nfran :  I hear they are touring Africa at the moment – a place Harry has said was like a ‘second home’ for him – so they could very much well be engaged right now! 🙂 …this is so exciting!!! I remembered the royal wedding in 2011 of Kate and Will (I stayed up super late to watch the wedding on TV, catch a glimpse of Kate’s dress and see the ceremony).  I look forward to hopefully doing this agian for Harry and Meghan.  I’m such a royal fan! 🙂

Can’t imagine they’ll get engaged after dating, long distance, for only a year.

But if they do get engaged, now or later, I think he’ll get her something new. Probably a coloured gemstone, not ruby – that’s thought to be bad luck in the royal family, since the last 3 ruby rings given in the family have 1 death and 2 divorces attached to them.

Of the six engagement rings the Queen’s children have given/got – 5 new (Anne, Diana, Sarah Anne, Sophie), 1 family heirloom. (Camilla). 3 Sapphires (Anne, Diana, Anne), 2 Diamond (Sophie, Camilla), 1 Ruby (Sarah).

I’d put my money on: cushion cut sapphire w/ diamond sidestones OR Diana’s aquamarine ring (since “someone” is pushing so hard in the press for her to get a Diana heirloom)

 

ETA: sorry for the novel. I love rings and I’m interested the royals, so where the two meet… well, as you see, long windedness happens.

I hope he uses his mum’s aquamarine ring as it keeps in line with william using his mum’s ring. There will be loads of comparisons made. It’s been online that his is using stones from a tiara that the queen gave to diana’s. 

All we can do it wait and see.

Guess we don’t have to wait anymore!!

According to CNN.com, “The ring, designed by Harry, has a gold band and features a large diamond from Botswana and two smaller outer diamonds from the personal collection of Harry’s late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, according to a statement from Kensington Palace.”

I find it really interesting the smaller diamonds are from Diana but not the larger one.

@bambii: I think prince Harry wanted to give her a diamond of her own while still incorporating his mother’s diamond collection in her ring. I think he did a beautiful job. I was expecting something a little gaudy, but this is simple, classic and totally fit for her. BEE-YOU-TEE-FUL!!

I love the idea that this will become another famous ring. Maybe as famous as Princess Diana’s e-ring! It will be known as the american princess’ ring ❤️❤️❤️

bambii :  he wanted meg’s to have her own stone, from the place they got to know each other without the world watching, from the place they spent their first holiday. From Botswana. AM CALLING IT the Botswana Diana trilogy

I love how she had a yellow gold ring! I think this is the push it needs to really come back in style!
