A dear friend of mine recently sent me an article about a Disney Princess engagement ring collection. These were designed by the blogger behind Heck Yeah Disney Merch using Gemvara’s custom ring design tool. They’re a lot of fun to look at, but none of them are really my taste. Therefore, because it’s rainy and I have time, I’d like to offer alternative Disney Princess engagement rings. Alternatives at an infinite budget, because: Princesses.
Cinderella’s ring was my favorite of the ones in the article that I linked to above; I love the idea of giving her a stone that matches her iconic ice-blue dress. I’m also making the assumption that her housework days aren’t going to follow her to the palace.
My pick for Cinderella is this lovely fancy blue diamond ring by Tiffany and Co., circa 1910. Cinderella’s look in general is very 1950’s (for obvious reasons) but I think this Edwardian ring suits her. The elegant, marquise-shaped 3.54 carat fancy blue diamond fits her personality, as do the subtle floral details and tiny winking white diamonds of the platinum setting.

Jasmine is one of the few Disney Princesses who grows up as a Princess. She has a tiger for a pet, a private garden, a documented penchant for statement jewelry, and a wardrobe of matching bra tops and harem pants. Men literally put on parades to try to get her attention, and she’s all Shania Twain about it. Also, her boyfriend has a genie BFF. Jasmine knows no limits.
My choice for Jasmine is the Sun Drop diamond, a legendary 110.03 carat fancy vivid yellow pear-shaped diamond. She’d have to take it off while pretending to be a normal girl in the market, but I’m sure her tiger would guard it for her. A Disney Princess engagement ring can be as over-the-top as it wants.

Aurora – a.k.a. Sleeping Beauty – is responsible for my lifelong dream to frolic barefoot in the woods in an casually fabulous outfit. She may not always make the best choices where spindles are concerned, but who couldn’t be jealous of her napping abilities?
I had to give Aurora an amethyst, because you know her various fairy godmothers would turn it purple eventually anyway with their pink vs blue fighting. features a light and lovely amethyst wreathed with 1 carat of diamonds, all set in pink gold.

We already know Ariel is a sucker for anything shiny or unusual, but her engagement ring should be a whoosit/whatsit unlike any other in her collection.
My pick for erstwhile mermaid Ariel is this stunner by Chopard – the colors can remind her of her first home, the sea. It would also be glorious against her red hair. This ring centers a rare and beautiful Pariba tourmaline, and is further adorned by sparkling white diamonds and additional tourmalines.

Mulan is a badass. She disavows traditional gender roles to save her father and ends up saving her country, all while hanging out with a dragon and learning to use her sword like a BAMF. She deserves something awesome.
My pick for Mulan is this fantastically rare and exquisite fancy vivid orange diamond ring. The center stone is 4.19 carats and the white gold setting is embellished with brilliant-cut diamonds. The emperor might have to finance it, since it’s a Sotheby’s record holder, but I think she’s earned it. After all, a girl like Mulan doesn’t come around every dynasty.
I had so much fun doing this that I decided to make it a mini-series. Click here for Part II of Disney Princess engagement rings, with Belle, Snow White, Esmerelda, Tiana, and Rapunzel.
