Meghan Markle and Prince Harry shocked the world when they made their first debut as an engaged couple on November 27, 2017, just a little over a year after they confirmed their relationship. Although the fairytale narrative of a former actress becoming royalty definitely piqued the public’s interest, what really made headlines was the bride-to-be’s stunning diamond rock. The sparkler was seen as a more traditional style compared to other celebrity and royal engagement rings, but even so, the delicate design and timelessness of the piece quickly gained attention and is still one of the most widely-known jewels of all time.

The stunning sparkler features a three-carat, cushion-cut center diamond which holds a special place in the pair’s hearts. Harry sourced the stone from Botswana—the location where the couple took their relationship to the next level—and integrated a small symbol into the accessory to commemorate the country where they truly fell in love. “Meghan’s engagement ring is very unique, full of little design details that nod to the couple’s relationship history and the family that she is now a part of,” Janie Marshall of Clean Origin explains.

The middle stone is then flanked by two round diamonds—each estimated at under a carat—which Harry retrieved from Princess Diana’s personal jewelry collection. “Meghan was never able to meet the late Princess Diana, so this ring keeps her present in their relationship and brings her into their love story in a poignant way,” Marshall notes. Finally, to tie it all together, the three gems are set on a yellow gold band made by royal jeweler Cleave and Company. Though the previous band was Meghan’s favorite at the time, since the proposal, the Duchess of Sussex updated her sparkler by swapping the original band for a micro-pavé one.

Today, Meghan Markle's diamond jewel has spawned countless copycat designs, with many people seeking to find a replica of this royal accessory. If you’re eager to get your hands on a similar style, we’ve compiled a list of three-stone diamond engagement rings that resemble Meghan’s iconic piece.

If you want to emulate Meghan’s updated ring, this “Lisbon” three-stone style from Clean Origin is a pretty close replica. With the option to select a yellow gold metal and a cushion-cut center stone, the only real difference is the channeled band, which Marshall says adds “extra sparkle.”

With a cushion-cut center diamond and a yellow gold hue, this “Monroe” ring from Gabriel & Co. closely matches Meghan’s stunning sparkler. What's slightly different, though, is the presence of two half-moon side diamonds instead of round-cut jewels á la Markle.

This style has the same characteristics as Meghan's three-stone accessory, but with a trio of emerald-cut stones instead.  We love this option as gives the illusion of a larger engagement ring, and it's the perfect choice for those who have an Art Deco edge.

Although the overall carat size is smaller than Meghan’s three-carat rock, this ring by Neil Lane features the same central elements. One distinguishing facet of this piece, though, is its 14K white gold band that features engraved floral and migraine edges for vintage feel.

For a fashionable and luxe twist on Meghan’s rock, this show-stopping piece from Vrai x Brides features an oval-cut center stone for a trendy design. The best part, though, is that this option offers more bling, by way of five gemstones as opposed to the trio of diamonds the Duchess of Sussex wears.

If you love Meghan’s ring but want to add a pop of color, look no further than this Blue Nile jewel. However, what we personally love the most is that the round-cut diamond center stone, paired with the pear-shaped side sapphires, combines the best of Meghan and Kate Middleton’s engagement rings into one.
