Zara Tindall is the only daughter of Princess Anne and the eldest daughter of Queen Elizabeth II. Although not a working member of the Royal Family, Zara is often seen out and about with husband Mike.
He said: “Zara’s diamond ring is a stunning example of a ‘modern’ diamond engagement ring. The ‘original’ diamond engagement ring style being a single diamond set in a band of gold.
“This example has the added benefit of diamonds set in the shoulders for extra sparkle and ‘bling’ and lets the design carry on beyond the central diamond.
“The look of these ring designs are also enhanced when set in a white metal such as white gold or platinum.
“Zara’s ring features a large central diamond of up to 2.00ct and up to 0.50ct of diamonds in the shoulders.
“Whilst a similar ring to Zara’s can be purchased for up to £100,000, add to that a respectable jewellery designer and the fact that Zara’s engagement ring is now an official royal piece, the value can increase by at least double!
“Whilst most couples may not be able to afford such a large diamond to set their engagement ring off, by adding a halo of diamonds to a smaller central diamond will definitely give that ‘royal’ look for less.”
The expert explained that halo rings are “very popular” as an alternative to the traditional single stone diamond ring.
He added: “The addition of extra diamonds such as a halo of diamonds around the centre diamond gives the illusion of a larger diamond and offers extra sparkle.
Shop rings from William May.
“At William May, we have a one carat diamond surrounded by a halo of smaller sparkling diamonds which easily gives the look of a two carat diamond ring for a fraction of the price!”

According to one expert, the ring “emphasises Mike’s sweet consideration”.
Diamond expert at John Pye Luxury told Express.co.uk: “With a value of an estimated £140,000, this beautiful ring is an elegant yet modern design, practically designed for Zara’s eventing career.
“The ring is enriched with split shank diamond-set shoulders which perfectly captivate the beauty of the brilliant cut low-sitting centre stone.
“Again, emphasising Mike’s sweet consideration when it came to choosing the ring.”
Other members of the Royal Family also have stunning engagement rings including Kate Middleton’s sapphire piece which previously belonged to Princess Diana.
It is thought to be one of the most recognisable rings in the world with an estimated value of £400,000.
