Headlines Details (and Likely Value) of Royal Engagement Ring Revealed Published 4 years ago on January 26, 2018 By INSTORE Staff Share Tweet 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.

Think: Wilkerson When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
