Prince Harry suggested there was no doubt what color metal he would choose for the band. "The ring is obviously yellow gold because that’s Meghan’s favorite, and the main stone itself is sourced from Botswana and the little diamonds either side are from my mother’s jewelry collection to make sure that she’s with us on this crazy journey together," Prince Harry said of the engagement ring during a BBC interview.
