Princess Beatrice’s Shaun Leane engagement ring is worth up to £100k

Princess Beatrice’s bespoke platinum and diamond engagement ring by British jeweller Shaun Leane is worth up to £100k, according to an expert.  

The royal, 31, who is engaged to property tycoon Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 34, showed off the stunning ring which is ‘filled with personal and sentimental signifiers’ in the official photographs taken by sister Princess Eugenie.  

It is a fusion of Victorian and Art Deco designs and is accompanied by two additional matching bands in the distinctive Shaun Leane design hand. 

‘Princess Beatrice’s is a beautiful engagement ring with a round brilliant cut diamond flanked by 4 baguette-cut diamonds.,’ said London Jeweller, Susannah Lovis.

‘It is breath-taking particularly because all you can see is diamonds and the platinum band is hidden. It appears to be around 3.5 carats and would probably have cost in the region of £100,000.’  

Princess Beatrice and Mr Mapelli Mozzi said in a statement: ‘We are extremely happy to be able to share the news of our recent engagement’

The ring was crafted in hand in the Shaun Leane Mayfair atelier and is set with excellent cut diamonds of the highest colour and clarity, of which all are GIA certified and ethically sourced. 

The bespoke experience began with a detailed and personal consultation with the groom. Consequently, the design is filled with personal and sentimental signifiers for the couple and unique to them.  

Shaun Leane says of the design: ‘I am so honoured Edoardo chose to work with me to design the engagement ring for Princess Beatrice and to have been involved in this special moment in their lives.’

He added: ‘The bespoke experience was a beautiful journey from imagining the design with Edoardo to the crafting of the rings.’

‘Being able to incorporate both Edoardo and Princess Beatrice’s characters into the design has resulted in a unique ring that represents their love and lives entwining.’

While sister Princess Eugenie had a ‘lots blossom’ sapphire and diamond ring following her engagement to now-husband Jack Brooksbank, Beatrice’s is completely different.

Princess Beatrice has become engaged to property tycoon Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, Buckingham Palace has announced

‘Unlike Kate and Eugenie, who were given coloured gemstones, Edoardo has gone for a more modern engagement ring with a diamond, like Harry for Meghan,’ said Tobias Kormind, managing director of 77Diamonds.com.

‘But while Meghan was given a cushion cut diamond, an older but more trendy diamond shape, Beatrice has been given the most popular and brightest diamond, a round, accompanied by a pair of tapered baguettes, which creates a very art deco look.’

‘This is very on trend as we are coming up to the 100 year anniversary of art deco and it is set to be THE trend for 2020.’

Princess Beatrice started dating the Italian property developer, who is a father-of-one, in October last year. 

Beatrice and Mr Mapelli Mozzi said in a statement: ‘We are extremely happy to be able to share the news of our recent engagement. 

‘We are both so excited to be embarking on this life adventure together and can’t wait to actually be married.

‘We share so many similar interests and values, and we know that this will stand us in great stead for the years ahead, full of love and happiness.’

Princess Beatrice’s sister Eugenie posted her congratulations on Instagram and shared a photograph taken by herself of the happy couple, adding: ‘Beabea – wow! I’m so happy for you my dearest big sissy and dear Edo.

‘It’s been a long time coming and you two are meant to be.’
