How much is the Duchess’s Engagement Ring worth today?
The Duchess of Cambridge’s engagement ring has been revalued at £300,000 ($506,550)—that’s more than 10 times the amount it was worth in 1981.
The inherited ring, which features a 12-carat sapphire surrounded by 14 diamonds, was valued at £28,000 ($47,278) when it was given to Princess Diana by Prince Charles.
The revaluation was part of a study conducted by jewellery expert Vashi Dominguez, who compiled a list of the world’s top 20 most famous engagement rings, noting how much each had risen in value since purchase.
While Kate’s ring unsurprisingly topped the list, it was followed by that of the Queen (a three-carat diamond solitaire surrounded by five smaller diamonds), worth £100,000 ($168,850). Also to make the list were Michelle Obama’s (valued at £26,000, or $43,901), and the Duchess of Cornwall’s (worth £250,000, or $422,125).
