Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge celebrated nine years of marriage in 2020, following their landmark Westminster wedding in 2011. Since then, they have gone on to produce another generation of royal heirs in their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. The Duchess of Cambridge has also accumulated some new jewellery, amongst them an eternity ring.
How can you buy the Duchess of Cambridge’s eternity ring?
The Duchess of Cambridge wears three items on her ring finger – an engagement ring, wedding band and eternity ring.
The engagement ring is perhaps the most famous of the three, as it contains a Sapphire once owned by Princess Diana.
While this is unique and completely unattainable for the general populace, her eternity ring is not.

Prince William gifted the Duchess her prized eternity ring – which signifies never-ending love – after the birth of Prince George in 2013.
Although overshadowed by the berry-like sapphire, eagle-eyed royal fans have noticed the ring’s presence next to her two others.
Eternity rings incorporate a circlet of diamonds embedded into a silver band, and the Duchess of Cambridge’s Anoushka-designed piece is no exception.
Her ring contains a set of brilliant-cut 0.23-carat diamonds, which is available on the London-based designer’s website.
Like many royals, her wedding band was manufactured from a gold nugget from the Clogau St David’s mine at Bontddu in North Wales.
The mine contains veins of coveted Welsh gold, a centrepiece of royal jewellery for 100 years.
Generations of family members have incorporated them into wedding rings, including Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Diana and the Queen Mother.
Most recently, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had their wedding rings made at the site.
While the general public can buy one for themselves, the royals have their versions made to measure.
People can customise a ring on the mine’s website, and in some cases, wedding rings and an engagement ring may cost more than an average yearly salary.
One of their most expensive options, which includes a one-carat diamond and white gold engagement ring and wedding ring, will set people back some £17,830.
Other items in the store cost much less, including a 2mm Windsor wedding ring at £230.
