Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton’s engagement ring beaten by Grace Kelly’s £29m jewel

Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton, 39, were given stunning engagement rings before they married into the Royal Family. While both jewels could fetch a fortune, Grace Kelly’s ring was worth much more, a study revealed.

The jewel was followed by Jackie Kennedy Onassis, whose ring from Aristotle Onassis was estimated to be worth £14,645,860, and Mariah Carey and her £8,167,645 diamond from James Packer.

While Kate and Meghan missed out on a spot in the top 10, their wedding rings were still given a huge valuation.

The Duchess of Cambridge’s sapphire and diamond ring from Prince William was valued at more than £400,000.

Meghan’s bespoke jewel from Prince Harry was given a hefty price tag of around £167,000.

“It features a 12-carat oval sapphire set in 18k white gold, surrounded by 14 solitaire diamonds.”

Meghan was given a trilogy ring designed by Prince Harry which featured diamonds from Princess Diana’s collection.

The piece was redesigned after their wedding and the gold band was replaced by a delicate diamond-studded band.
