Meghan Markle's Wedding Ring Will Follow Traditions Taking Back to 1923

Meghan Markle's Wedding Ring Will Follow Traditions Taking Back to 1923

Meghan Markle's wedding ring will follow a special Royal Family tradition that dates back to 1923 and was started by the marriage of the Queen Mother to King George VI, it has been claimed.

Prince Harry’s fiancee will reportedly wear a wedding band made from Welsh gold that was first used for the royal wedding in 1923.

Elizabeth Bowes Lyon is seen to have started the Royal Family tradition.

The Queen then followed in the footsteps of her mother in 1947 when she and Prince Philip became husband and wife.

In 2011 the Duchess of Cambridge also wore the prestigious gold during her marriage to Prince William.

Ben Roberts, the managing director of Clogau Gold who are a supplier for the Royal Family, emphasised that Meghan Markle’s wedding band will most likely have to match the shade of gold seen from her engagement ring that was designed by Prince Harry.

He stated: "Looking at her engagement ring, it will probably have to match, so it will probably be yellow."

It is believed that Meghan’s ring will have a Welsh dragon stamp and will be put together by Wartski jewellers.

Clogau currently has two mines in the northwest Wales region of Bontddu.

The pair are currently closed and last operated in the late 1990s.
