    my apologies if I've spelt her wrong
    she certainly has the look of her mother and her aunt and maybe her cousin Ann?

    Wasn’t it also the Queen Mum’s ER? I thought that was a nice gesture by QE2 to allow Charles to propose with it.

    @the_mother_thing it was one of the Queen Mother's ring. Her actual engagement ring was a sapphire, but here's a pic of her wearing the ring that is now Camilla's!

    Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon (eventually to be Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Consort and later The Queen Mother) was given a sapphire and diamond engagement ring by the Duke of York—which you can see in this photo taken at the time of her engagement. Later in life she wore a pearl ring in place of this ring. The Duke of York proposed to her three times before she accepted him.

    No, westjenn was correct. The ring The Duchess of Cornwall (Camilla) received from The Prince of Wales is not The Queen Mother's engagement ring. Westjenn posted, correctly, that the ring The Duke of York gave to Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon was a sapphire and diamond ring. It is the one pictured in the photo I posted, although I acknowledge that one can hardly see it!

    I posted about this above, saying that westjenn had been correct and that the ring Prince Charles gave The Duchess of Cornwall (Camilla) was not The Queen Mother's engagement ring. Here is some additional information on The Queen Mother's original sapphire and diamond engagement ring and a better picture of it.

    "1923 - The Queen Mother & King George VI - platinum sapphire & diamond engagement ring
    When the second son of King George V, Prince Albert ‘Bertie' first met Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon (later on known as the Queen Mother), he was smitten. Bertie (who would become King George VI) first asked for Lady Elizabeth's hand in marriage in 1921, but she refused. Adamant that Lady Elizabeth was the love of his life, he refused to marry anyone else. In 1923, Prince Albert proposed once more with an oval cut sapphire engagement ring set in platinum and flanked in small diamonds. The King and Queen married in Westminster Abbey and went on to have two daughters, Elizabeth II (later on Queen Elizabeth II) and Princess Margaret. After the death of King George VI in 1952, Elizabeth stopped wearing her engagement ring in favour of a pearl ring."

    Would love to see the ring in color. Has it been worn since?
