When heir to the throne Prince Frederik of Denmark proposed to Mary Donaldson, now Crown Princess Mary, he did so with a central emerald-cut diamond flanked by a pair of ruby baguettes.
It mirrors the national flag of Denmark, which is red with a white Scandinavian cross, with the vertical part shifted to the hoist side.
Commenting on a post by The Court Jeweller, Disqus user @Lisfyre said of Crown Princess Mary’s ring: “I’ve always liked this ring – both in the original format and the newest configuration. I think it suits HRH CP Mary very well – active mum, style icon, Princess and future Queen. It’s perfect.
“It’s a lot better than Princess Marie’s which I think is downright ugly.”
