Meghan Markle’s engagement ring sparks popularity for classic engagement rings.

When Meghan Markle stood beside Prince Harry for their first public appearance as a couple on November 27 all eyes were on her custom engagement ring. And people are already re-creating it.

When Kate Middleton gracefully entered the royal family, her modern, elegant style became envied by women all over the world. And soon enough clothing pieces she wore were selling out in minutes. So when Meghan Markle stepped out hand in hand with Prince Harry, it was no surprise that the jacket she wore sold out online too.

But this trend isn’t limited to clothing. Royal engagement rings are also very inspirational and Meghan Markle’s beautiful diamond engagement ring from Prince Harry is no exception.

Founder of Cerrone Jewellers, Nic Cerrone, says that their workshop are preparing themselves for a high demand for rings inspired by Markle’s engagement ring.

“Meghan Markle’s ring is very classic – the trilogy design has been popular for generations, while the cushion cut diamond is very on-trend now. It’s only a matter of time to start seeing this style in high demand.” Cerrone said.

People follow the royal family closely and appreciate their lifestyle and their work. So when Princess Diana’s sapphire engagement ring surfaced the popularity of sapphires skyrocketed. And when the engagement ring was passed to Kate Middleton the style resurfaced and inspired another generation.

Cerrone said “I recall one particular Cerrone client requesting an exact replica of Kate’s stunning ring”.

This is the effect the classic style of the royals has. And thankfully both Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have impeccable taste. Prince Harry and Markle aren’t to be married until May next year and her style is already hugely influential, and we look forward to seeing what other jewellery she brings to the table.
