According to experts, the ring has an incalculable sentimental value as it was worn by the Princess of Wales before her death, which makes it an item worth preserving and caring for. Although there is no exact price for the aquamarine ring, the estimate is 85 thousand dollars.
The story behind the aquamarine ring that Meghan inherited from Diana, few know. It came to the Princess of Wales as a gift from the wife of the then UK ambassador to Brazil. Lucia Flecha de Lima, who was close to Princess Diana, gave her the aquamarine jewel to replace the sapphire that the now King Charles III had given her when they became engaged.
This occurred after the controversial divorce between King Charles and Princess Diana, so it was a touching act on the part of the former ambassador’s wife.
The piece was inherited by Harry and he kept it until Prince Harry gave it as a gift to Meghan Markle at their wedding.
