It’s not December 25th, but gotta say, it feels like Christmas morning after waking up to news of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle making it official with their #2018weddinggoals. Seriously, we haven’t been this excited since we all casually stopped working on the morning of April 29th 2011 to binge watch Will and Kate’s big day. Anyone want to deny it?
Yes, between baby #3’s anxiously-anticipated arrival and this amazing engagement news, there must be something in the water, across the pond. And we’re so psyched about it.
When Prince Harry and his bride to be stepped out for a fall engagement photocall at the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace in London following their official engagement announcement earlier today, they were [rightfully] glowing with smiles on smiles on smiles. And while we’re taking a minute to digest just how freakin adorable PH is, sharing how he knew Ms. Markle was “the one” from “the very first time we met” - OMG swoooooon - we also couldn’t help but notice something even more important. Yah, that beyond gorgeous engagement ring on her perfectly-polished fingers.
Mani game is strong with this one. Catch up with some of our favorite bride-worthy manis right now.
The ring is alllllll kinds of special. I can’t help but feel like I’m part of a secret, royal-only club, since I myself have a trilogy engagement ring, probs not one priced even remotely close to Meg’s ((though, of course, it’s invaluable, hubby :) But really, every long-dating, engagement-ring-waiting woman out there is sure to be eyeing a trilogy ring of her own after watching that stunner sparkle on Markle’s finger.
Featuring a center cushion-cut stone allegedly from Botswana, a place that the couple holds so near and dear to their hearts, and two side stones plucked from Princess Diana’s own coveted collection, the three-stone, trilogy style that Prince Harry designed himself (with Queen Elizabeth’s jeweler Cleave and Company) has so much meaning we can’t even handle it.
This ring is going to be inspiring SOOO many brides-to-be and their soon-to-be-question-popping partners, so we rounded up a few that we’ve seen pop up on Insta lately. They’ve got her look, and some.
Take a peek… and don’t worry if they somehow stay on your screen long enough for bae to glance at, either… hint hint hint.
