Why Is Princess Eugenie’s Engagement Ring So Rare And How Much Is It Worth?

The striking design, chosen by Jack, contains a padparadscha sapphire, a very rare jewel which has a beautiful pinkish-orange glow and is usually found in Sri Lanka.

Speaking in their engagement interview, the businessman told the BBC at the time: “I found a ring in a jeweller, and then proposed to Eugenie without it. We came back and designed the ring with diamonds around it.”

He added that the Padparadscha sapphire reminded him of his fiancée, as “it changes colour when it hits certain lights, much like Eugenie”.

According to the Natural Sapphire Company: “Padparadscha sapphires are one of the rarest of sapphires. These extremely rare stones are unknown to most, but when discovered usually become an absolute favorite. They are strikingly beautiful and almost no other coloured stone compares to this unique mix of pink and orange.”

The name is an ancient Sanskrit word used to describe the colour of a tropical lotus flower.

Eugenie’s ring is estimated to be worth between £100,000 to £120,000.
