Princess Beatrice's royal wedding to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi broke tradition in more ways than one, with her choice of wedding ring among the factors that set her big day apart from others. The newlywed wears a stunning platinum and diamond wedding ring designed by Shaun Leane – the jeweller who also designed her engagement ring – which fuses Victorian and Art Deco aesthetics.

The design signifies a break with tradition as most royal brides over the last century have chosen to have gold wedding bands. According to the jewellers Clogau, the Queen's own wedding ring is made from a nugget of pure Welsh gold from the Clogau mine. Princess Margaret, Princess Anne, Princess Diana, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall also used the same gold in their bands.
