Kate Middleton style: Duchess has ‘timeless’ £35,000 ruby ring in jewellery collection
Kate Middleton, 39, regularly adds stunning pieces of jewellery to her looks. From necklaces to bracelets to rings, the Duchess is known for her love of both high-end and high-street jewellery pieces.
She said: “The Duchess of Cambridge’s ruby ring I estimate to be worth in the region of £35,000 and is a stunning piece of timeless yet ‘on trend’ jewellery – a step away from the traditional jewels worn by the Royal Family.
“The setting is elegant and really helps the stone to stand proud in the ring with a simple diamond set band accentuating the ruby even more.”
The Duchess has added her ruby ring to her outfits over the past couple of years, matching it to the red clutches she will regularly use.
The expert added: “She is thought to have worn it paired with a white Alexander McQueen peplum dress as a nod to the colours of the Polish flag when she was on tour with her family in Poland.”
Throughout lockdown, Kate has stepped away from her expensive rings and just opted to keep it simple with her engagement ring.
Her sapphire engagement ring featured a 12-carat oval sapphire surrounded by 14 solitaire diamonds.
It previously belonged to Princess Diana and was inherited by William when she passed away in 1997.
The royal jewel cost £28,000 when it was first bought but is currently valued at a staggering £300,000.
