What does Sarah Ferguson's engagement ring look like?

The Duchess of York's engagement ring is one of the most recognisable royal jewels, as it features a huge Burmese ruby surrounded by ten glittering diamonds, and the stones form a flower pattern which is also known as a cluster ring. The precious gems are arranged on a yellow gold band and the gorgeous colours are so attention-grabbing.

Does Sarah Ferguson still wear her engagement ring?

Prince Andrew and Sarah separated in 1992 and divorced in 1996, but the Duchess only stopped wearing the precious jewel in 2003, a whopping 11 years after separating. Sarah did also keep her wedding day tiara, which was believed to be a present from her in-laws, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.

Does Princess Beatrice or Princess Eugenie have Sarah Ferguson's engagement ring?

When Princess Eugenie got engaged to Jack Brooksbank, she showed off the most gorgeous cluster-shaped ring containing a padparadscha sapphire surrounded by diamonds. Although it looks incredibly similar to her mother's engagement ring, it is not the exact one, and Princess Beatrice's eye-catching ring from Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi is a completely different design altogether.
