The Queen’s most iconic jewellery in pictures – including her beloved ‘Granny’s Tiara’

The Queen’s engagement ring

The Queen received an engagement ring with incredible sentimental value from Prince Philip, as it has links to the late Duke’s mother Princess Alice of Battenberg.

Daniel O’Farrell, founder of DC Jewellery and gemologist, said of the ring: “The Queen’s engagement ring is arguably her most treasured piece, having been presented to her by Prince Phillip in 1946 when they were staying at Balmoral.

“However the official announcement of the engagement was delayed until after the Queen’s 21st birthday.”

With regards to the ring’s value, Mr O’Farrell added: “The ring would likely retail in the region of £150,000, but due to the provenance and historical significance of the ring, were it ever to come to market it would be worth many millions.”
