The ring, composed of an oval sapphire encircled by a single row of fourteen diamonds, was given by Prince Charles to Lady Diana Spencer just under three decades ago.  The ring was purchased by Charles from the crown jeweller Garrard, with sapphires reportedly being one of Diana's favourites gemstones.  Prince William inherited the ring from his mother's estate upon her tragic death in 1997. When asked why he selected this ring for his bride-to-be, the William stated, ‘It was my mother's engagement ring. This was my way of keeping her close to it all.’

Though the royal ring discussed is perhaps the most classic of cluster designs, sapphire and diamond cluster rings come in a wide variety of styles, shapes and sizes, certain to accommodate any taste or budget.

Berganza the jewellers is based in the heart of Hatton Garden, London. We specialise in the finest examples of ancient, antique and vintage engagement rings. We are proud to have one of the largest collections of these rings in the world.

We believe in only offering exceptional pieces from each design period, from Ancient Roman intaglio seal rings, Viking twisted rings through to rare gem-set Medieval pieces, Georgian, ornate Victorian, elegant Edwardian, bold Art Deco and retro vintage designs. Each piece has a unique historical background and dates to a time when jewellery was crafted by hand, so no two are alike.

Every item of jewellery is set with hand cut diamonds or natural and unenhanced gemstones, often from mines long since depleted. Our team of specialists are trained in all aspects of gemology and history of jewellery design so we are able to select the finest quality pieces of jewellery for our extensive one-of-a-kind stock. We deal in rarity and as such have a vast collection of posy rings, the precursors to 'modern' wedding rings.
