Jewel of the day: Pippa Middleton’s Engagement Ring

Not much is officially known about the ring Pippa Middleton received when she accepted a marriage proposal from James Matthews, other than the fact that it’s big and likely cost a huge sum (it’s been estimated to have cost in the region of £250,000).

There is some speculation it’s vintage or antique, possibly an Art Deco piece, but the octagonal diamond set surround makes me wonder. Art Deco pieces were geometric, but a tiny bit more delicate in design pieces like this, and often incorporated coloured stones to offset the centre diamond (or vice versa).

Regardless, it’s quite the chunk of ice. Congrats to the happy couple. Now all they need are titles bestowed when big sis Kate becomes queen and can nudge William to do something nice for the in-laws.
