A contemporary interpretation of Queen Elizabeth II ‘s engagement ring.

Posted on by Lizzie Watson

In London’s Berkeley Square, and by appointment only, third-generation family-owned and run firm, Pragnell, will open its doors and allow you access to a large selection of outrageously beautiful bespoke jewellery.

Pragnell has a rich history and a reputation as one of the leading names in the world of jewellery and their skill and eye for detail satisfies the most discerning customers. Renowned specialists in gemmology, it is no wonder that Philip Antrobus, who became part of the company years ago, was chosen by the Duke of Edinburgh to design and make the engagement ring he presented to the young princess Elizabeth in 1946.

In celebration of the Platinum Anniversary of prince Philip’s proposal to the Queen, Pragnell is delighted to present the handcrafted platinum Antrobus setting which is a contemporary interpretation of Queen Elizabeth II ‘s engagement ring.

During this design process we were very conscious not to replicate exactly the original ring design. It was important to us that some detail of the original design should remain individual to our Queen. The Antrobus setting is inspired by this special engagement ring, the design for which we hold in our archives.

Comprising highly polished platinum, the ring includes a Pragnell GIA certified diamond (one carat held above) held in an eight-claw setting. A further four brilliant cut diamonds set in the band draw the eye to this magnificent central gemstone.
Each diamond found in the Antrobus setting possesses the most desirable quality grading certificate, from the GIA, the world’s foremost and respected diamond grading laboratory.
The Antrobus setting is crafted entirely in  Pragnell’s own UK workshops, which is signified by the Pragnell Seal which lies in the shank of the ring alongside the hallmark.
