In fact, Princess Eugenia, 27, marries in autumn with her historic boyfriend, Jack Brooksbank, 31 years old. The official announcement was made by Buckingham Palace with a statement explaining that the engagement of the second daughter of Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew took place in Nicaragua at the beginning of the month. The news was announced on Twitter, and the couple has published the now institutional images of the ring. The jewel is different from the classic solitaire in white gold and diamonds. In fact, it is made with a striking oval cut Padparadscha sapphire surrounded by a circle of diamonds on a yellow gold band, with two other diamonds on its side. The stone used, the sapphire Padparadscha, is rather rare. It is a type of sapphire that takes its name from the Sinhalese word which indicates the pink lotus flower. From a gemological point of view the sapphire Padparadscha is a corundum (the same family of rubies). In addition to Sri Lanka (the most valuable), these stones are found in Madagascar and Tanzania.
