Everyone thought that Kate Middleton and her engagement ring were practically inseparable. There have been few times when the Duchess of Cambridge has appeared without the prized diamond-crowned sapphire jewel that belonged to Princess Diana.
William proposed to Kate in 2010 during a trip to Kenya, there he gave her his mother’s jewel. It is said that his brother, Prince Harry, gave it to her as the piece had originally been inherited by him.
The image of the Duchess of Cambridge without her engagement ring was captured last August 2 when she attended the swimming competition at the Sandwwell Aquatics Centre in Birmingham as part of the Commonwealth Games.
What happened to Kate Middleton’s engagement ring?
Photos taken that day showed that Prince William‘s wife was wearing only her wedding ring, a piece of yellow Welsh gold that William gave her on their wedding day on April 29, 2011.
Kate attended the event dressed in an impeccable white trouser suit and jacket designed by Alexander McQueen, as always she looked perfect but did not wear her engagement ring. Many users on social networks wondered where was the impressive jewel. It should be noted that it is not the first time she went out without the ring.
At the moment it is not known if the jewel is in some kind of maintenance. This type of pieces, formed by a Ceylon sapphire of 12 carats surrounded by inlays of 14 solitaire diamonds require special care from time to time.
