For her wedding, Alexandra Daddario wore a silk wool gown that perfectly complemented the New Orleans backdrop. To help pull her outfit together, the “San Andreas” actor accessorized with “something blue” that was inspired by a royal wedding. “I’m obsessed with Meghan Markle,” Daddario told People in July. “She wore an aquamarine ring I believe from Princess Diana’s collection,” the actor said, reflecting on the Duchess of Sussex’s wedding attire. “Mine was less fancy, but I had a large blue, aquamarine ring copying Meghan Markle,” she added. The royal-inspired ring that Daddario wore was prominent in the wedding day post she uploaded to Instagram on June 30. In the second slide, the “Percy Jackson” actor shared a smooch with her husband while making the ring very visible as she held an umbrella in that hand.
As Daddario mentioned, Meghan Markle’s aquamarine ring was part of Princess Diana’s personal collection, and was passed down to her sons after her untimely death. Markle wore the eye-catching ring as her “something blue” during her wedding to Prince Harry in 2018. “Designed by Asprey, the ring is set in 24-carat gold and features a massive emerald-cut aquamarine of potentially over 30 carats, flanked by smaller solitaire diamonds,” diamonds expert Daniel O’Farrell told Express in July.
Although a ring of that caliber would usually cost high five-figures, Markle’s ring — that was passed down from Princess Di — would be priceless due to its historical value. Daddario was not the only one impressed by Markle’s dazzling ring, either.
