The stunning emerald-cut stone is a vibrant blue shade, flanked by sparkling diamonds. The ring was a gift to Meghan from her husband Prince Harry. The aquamarine ring was passed down to Prince Harry after his mother, Diana died, and gifted to Meghan in 2018. Meghan wore the ring to the reception of her wedding. The ring sta ...
