Kate Middleton’s Gold Wedding Ring

The ring Prince William put today on the hands of Kate Middleton is made of rare gold. The ring was made from a gold piece given to him by Queen Elizabeth, when his engagement was announced.

Prince William and Catherine Middleton chose Wartski to make the Wedding Ring for Miss Middleton.

The ring has been fashioned from a piece of Welsh gold that was given to Prince William by The Queen shortly after the engagement was announced.

The ring will be carried to Westminster Abbey by Prince William’s Best Man Prince Harry on the wedding day.

There will be only one ring, in accordance with the Couple’s wishes.
