Seeing as in South Africa the average spend on an engagement ring is between R30 000 and R40 000 according to BusinessTech, this really isn’t a bad option at all. But we don’t blame you if you want a more expensive replica of the ring too. 

The replica of Meghan's ring will cost you less than R600

There are a few differences between the original ring and the replica however. 

Meghan's ring was created by Cleave and Company, better known as the official jewellers of Harry's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth. Her ring had a yellow gold band, which Prince Harry purposely chose since it's her favourite. 

It's also a tradition for the family to use Welsh gold for the band. And of course, Meghan's ring features a centre jewel from Princess Diana's own collection, which has been described by several professional appraisers as "priceless."

So no, this ring won’t be one of a kind and it won’t feature real diamonds from Botswana, but it is still pretty nonetheless.
