Cleave and Company set Diana’s diamond into Markle’s engagement ring

Jewellers Cleave and Company has been confirmed as the creator of Meghan Markle’s ring for her engagement to Prince Harry.

The ring was designed by the prince and incorporates two diamonds from Princess Diana’s collection. The central diamond was sourced from Botswana, where the couple travelled to this summer to celebrate Markle’s 36th birthday.

The couple announced their royal engagement on 27 November, with plans for a spring wedding in 2018.

The company said in a statement: “Cleave and Company are greatly honoured to have been of service and we wish Prince Henry and his fiancé the very best.”

Sophie Lomax, head of design, at 77 Diamonds, estimated that the cost of a ring of its size and quality would start at £50,000.

Lomax said: “With two round diamonds supporting what looks like a 2.5 carat cushion cut diamond, the stones are set in white gold with the main band of the ring in yellow gold.”
