The world—ourselves included—can’t stop oohing and ahhing over Meghan Markle’s engagement ring. And why should we? The three-stone stunner is truly dazzling, and a lot of us not-so-secretly want to copy basically anything Meghan Markle wears or does.
But if you want an exact replica from the royal jeweler that made Markle’s ring, you’re out of luck. Cleave and Company, the jewelry house in question, has been inundated with requests for diamond doppelgangers—and the answer is a hard no.
“We’re not going to be making replicas of it,” Stephen Connelly, the Cleave and Company director told the Associated Press. “If you want a ring, then we’ll design you a different one.”
Connelly also told the AP that the reaction to Markle’s ring came as “a bit of a shock,” though tbh, we totally could have called this.
The ring, which Prince Harry designed himself with Cleave and Company—which is also responsible for the Queen’s jewels—features one standout stone from Botswana flanked by two smaller ones, which were from Princess Diana’s personal jewelry collection. Priceless.
While it’s impossible to get an exact replica, if you want something similar we’ve rounded up some options here. You’re most welcome.
