Pippa Middleton’s engagement ring is blinding! Kate Middleton’s little sis debuted her Art Deco-inspired sparkler from James Matthews — and you can check out her brand new bling right here!
Pippa Middleton, 32, was all smiles as she stepped out in London on July 19 — and although she may have been coy and tried to hide her engagement ring the day before, it was impossible to miss the giant diamond on the ring finger on her left hand. Her engagement ring from James Matthews, 40, features a blinding Asscher cut diamond in an Art Deco-inspired setting.
We consulted Mark Keeney, VP of marketing for Ritani, who weighed in on her stunning sparkler. “We have seen a rise in popularity of the Asscher-cut among celebrities due to the distinct “X” effect within the diamond and their vintage aesthetic. The center diamond in Pippa’s ring appears to be at least 3 carats, and is likely either a custom design or an heirloom piece,” he said. “The total price for her ring is close to a quarter of a million dollars.”
Prior to debuting her gorgeous sparkler, Pippa tried to hide her left hand as she attended the Frost Family Summer Party in London on July 18, where she looked summery and chic in a L. K. Bennett dress.
Once the news of the engagement broke, Kate’s little sis was all smiles as she stepped out in a white Whistles dress and a brown tote. While her casual summer look was classic and casual, there was no way we could miss her brand new bling! James popped the question and presented the stunning Art Deco-inspired diamond ring to Pippa in the Lake District. The couple dated for less than a year before the hedge fund manager asked for her hand in marriage, and the couple is planning to marry next year, in 2017. “Miss Pippa Middleton and Mr James Matthews are delighted to announce they became engaged on Sunday 17th July and plan to marry next year,” the couple said in a statement to the Press Association.
