How Princess Eugenie's engagement ring echoes Sarah Ferguson and Diana's sparklers

“I actually said this is an incredible moment, and then he popped the question, which was really surprising even though we have been together seven years.

“I was over the moon. [It was a] complete surprise. But it was the perfect moment, we couldn’t be happier.”

Princess Eugenie’s engagement ring from Jack has a rare coral-coloured padparadscha sapphire at its centre.

Rather than the traditional dark blue colour commonly associated with sapphires, the padparadscha sapphire is famed for its pink-orange hue.

Jack actually didn’t propose to Eugenie with the ring, despite choosing the unique stone at a jeweller beforehand, to ensure Eugenie could “sign off” on the ring before he purchased it.
