It could be worth more than Meghan Markle’s sparkler.

Princess Eugenie of the British Royal family is sporting a new engagement ring that includes a rare padparadscha sapphire.

The gem is likely about 3 carats, Brilliant Earth executive Kathryn Money told Newsweek. It’s surrounded by diamonds, and the band is mixed white and yellow gold, Newsweek notes.

The ring from Eugenie’s longtime beau, Jack Brooksbank, brings to mind one owned by Eugenie’s mother, Sarah, Duchess of York, according to the magazine. And it’s reminiscent of Kate Middleton’s ring in that they both feature sapphires.

According to the New York Post’s Page Six, British gem expert Deborah Papas estimates the value of the ring at $140,000. That means the ring may be worth twice as much as the one worn by Meghan Markle, who will marry Prince Harry this year, according to the newspaper.

And of course, “the second she put it on her finger, the value increased exponentially,” Michael Fried, CEO of Diamonds Pro, said of Eugenie’s ring, according to Money magazine.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
