“Set on an 18 carat yellow gold band, the brilliant 6-10 carat oval diamond solitaire is spectacular for many reasons, but with its size and setting there is no surprise that it has been valued at around $500,000 (£400,000).

“Earlier this month, Hailey and Justin renewed their vows and announced they’re expecting their first child together, sharing photos of a baby bump and what appears to be an upgraded engagement ring. 

The stunning new ring, designed by Lorraine Schwartz, features a four-prong, oval diamond. The ring, which now adorns her wedding ring finger, is estimated to be valued at $1.5 million (£1.2 million) – with her original engagement ring taking pride of place on her right pinky finger. 

“Oval designs give an air of sophistication, making them a hugely popular engagement ring option that is both versatile and timeless.

HRH Princess Catherine of Wales and HRH Prince William of Wales - £300,000

“Estimated to be worth around £300,000, Kate’s engagement ring features Ceylon blue sapphires – a favourite for royals around the world.

“Famously worn by Princess Diana before being passed to Kate Middleton,  the iconic family heirloom holds incredible sentimental value. 

A blue sapphire is said to symbolise faithfulness and sincerity – a romantic and meaningful gesture for Kate’s ring which complements her classic and understated look.

 Royal and regal, the deep blue coloured gemstone is a great match for Kate, who is known for her composure, charisma and charm.

“With an elongated cushion cut, the ring features two tapered baguettes and an incredibly rare 10 carat green diamond centre stone, which is said to signify the singer’s lucky colour.

“Valued between $5-10 million (£4-8 million), the ring is a real showstopper!

Set on a rose gold band, the ring is valued at around $2 million (£1.6 million).

“Setting the pink diamond on rose gold complements the stone’s colour, and its solitaire setting only accentuates its size and prominence.

“A unique and bold take on the traditional three stone design, Anna’s ring is made up of a sensational pear-shaped pink diamond, cushioned between two smaller pear-shaped diamonds either side. Its size and clarity mean the ring has been valued at more than $2.5 million (£1.9 million).

“Carefully curated to suit Anna’s personality, the captivating pink gemstones are often associated with creativity, love, and romance. 

They likely played into Enrique’s choice to select the perfect engagement ring to symbolise the couple’s everlasting love for each other.
