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.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
