Congratulations to Princess Beatrice of York and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi on their engagement!
Property mogul and descendant of Italian nobility, Edoardo “Edo” Mapelli Mozzi, proposed to Princess Beatrice of York in Italy this September with a gorgeous Art Deco inspired ring. Beatrice’s 2.5 carat round center diamond is flanked by baguette diamond accents, round brilliant diamonds on the shoulders, and 5 pavé set diamonds along each side of the band. According to the jeweler, Edoardo helped design the ring and was inspired by his love of Art Deco designs and Beatrice’s love for a Victorian aesthetic in jewelry. The combination of these two design eras makes for a stunning vintage inspired ring.
Edoardo picked out the diamonds himself and selected ethically sourced diamonds from Botswana – of which we heartily approve! Meghan Markle’s center diamond from Prince Harry is also from Bostwana. Botswana diamond mining has contributed to transforming Botswana into one of Africa’s most prosperous countries, and Botswana diamond mines are dedicated to minimizing their environmental footprint. We are proud to offer Botswana Sort diamonds as part of our selection of Beyond Conflict Free DiamondsTM. Choosing a diamond from Botswana reflects these couples’ commitment to social and environmental responsibility.
In celebration of the happy couple’s engagement, we’ve pulled together some of our favorite vintage and vintage inspired designs inspired by Princess Beatrice’s ring!
