Meghan Markle's “Something Blue” Gives Kate Middleton's Sapphire a Run For Its Money
After her wedding in 2018, Meghan Markle drove off with Prince Harry to her evening reception at Frogmore House in a blue Jaguar. The gorgeous couple were glowing, but that was in part thanks to Meghan’s flashy bauble: a baby-blue, square Asprey gemstone that glowed from her right ring finger and belonged to Princess Diana. (Princess Diana wore the same aquamarine ring at a public outing in October 1996, a benefit dinner in Australia.) Was this her “something blue” and something borrowed? It certainly appears that way.
Some might say it accessorized her bespoke Stella McCartney party dress and blue-painted Aquazzura heels, but we think the opposite – the gown helped accessorize the jewel. After all, this gleaming rock outshines Meghan’s engagement ring and wedding band (although, let us just say, they really do make for the perfect everyday pairing). Ahead, zoom in on Meghan’s dream of a ring and see Princess Diana wearing it in 1996.
