Every British royal has his or her own history to be remembered with time. Queen Elizabeth says Camilla Parker’s ring is of historic significance.
The Duchess of Cornwall’s bling doesn’t get the attention it deserves.
This very week, Camilla Parker Bowles was once again on her royal duty. She attended The Royal Society of Literature’s “40 Under 40” fellow induction without Prince Charles. But, while Prince Charles’ wife signed books and spoke in front of an audience full of inspired writers, it was hard to ignore her jewellery. And, particularly the huge ring gleaming on her ring finger.
This really got us wondering: What’s the story with her gorgeous sparkler? Well, after our research and hard work we found out that, the gem Prince Charles used to propose to Camilla traces back to Queen Mother. Some pictures were taken during the mid-1980s showing Elizabeth donning the flashy jewel at an evening event.

However, it was not her wedding ring from King George VI. It is still unknown exactly how she acquired this precious piece. This particular ring features an art deco design and a five-carat emerald-cut diamond in the centre.

And, this five-carat emerald-cut diamond in the centre is paired with a modest gold wedding band and three diamond baguettes on each side. The ring is just one of the many jewellery pieces Camilla owns from the Queen Mother’s collection.
This is not the only royal jewellery she has. The Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla is also reportedly known for wearing the Greville Tiara. It’s another royal adornment that was passed down from Prince Charles’ grandmother.
