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.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
