Buckingham Palace dropped the hottest new fashion accessory this month: Meghan Markle’s $165,000 engagement ring... or, at least a replica of it. That’s right, you can now purchase a ring inspired by Meghan's very own diamond engagement ring straight from Buckingham Palace’s Royal Collection for a surpringsly reasonable price.
"The three-crystal ring is made of sparkling crystals set on a palladium plated metal," the ring description reads. Named the Buckingham Palace Statement Ring, it is priced at just $35, and is still in stock (though we don’t imagine it will be for long).
The Royal Collection is "one of the largest and most widely distributed arts collections in the world," and it represents the personal tastes of kings and queens over the last 500 years. The Royal Collection shop, therefore, sells various jewelery, homeware, and gifts inspired by the royal family.
The resemblance to Meghan’s own ring is uncanny. Of course, it’s a far cry from the Botswana-sourced diamond Meghan sports on her own finger. Her engagement ring reportedly cost $165,000 and was made up of one central three-carat diamond and two round diamonds on either side that belonged to Princess Diana.
Available to buy on their website now, the replica ring also comes in a white box marked with "H & M" gold lettering (not to be confused with the store H&M). Basically, if you want a Duchess-approved jewelery collection, you only need to sacrifice your weekly takeout and you'll be royal ready in no time.
Of course, with the inevitable Meghan effect due to hit any minue, we don't doubt this ring will be available for long. That's why we recommend it snapping it up now if your Meghan-inspired jumper, favorite sunglasses, and self-portrait dress isn't quite cutting it.
