The British royal family announced the wedding of Queen Elizabeth's granddaughter, Princess Beatrice, on Friday. The announcement saw the princess finally say her marital vows to her beau, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.

Hello! Magazine has confirmed that just like her engagement ring, Beatrice's wedding band was also designed by famed British jeweler, Shaune Leane, who left no stone unturned in creating a masterpiece of a ring.
The wedding ring was hand-created, fusing Victorian and Art Deco aesthetics as well as the best quality diamonds and platinum. Leane, in a statement on Instagram, expressed happiness for the couple, writing:
"I am thrilled for the happy couple, it warms my heart to see two wonderful people unite in love as much as Edoardo and Beatrice do."
Leane further said he was honored to have created Princess Beatrice's engagement and wedding rings, and wished her and Edoardo a lifetime of love and happiness in their union.
In being diamond and platinum, the wedding ring is a departure from wedding rings of past royal brides over the last century, which have been made of gold.
The ring was a more modern design to that of Kate Middleton, Princess Eugenie, and other royal princesses.
The wedding between Princess Beatrice and Edoardo came two months after it was initially scheduled to hold. It was held secretly at the Royal Chapel of All Saints, Royal Lodge, Windsor.
While details on the princess's wedding dress or the nuptials are yet to be revealed, the revelation that her wedding band was made of diamond and platinum will surprise many who believed it would be pure Welsh gold because of royal history.
Princess Beatrice and Edoardo announced their engagement on September 26, 2019, with their wedding scheduled for May 29, 2020, though it was postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Edoardo proposed to Beatrice while the couple was in Italy, presenting her a diamond-encrusted ring designed by the remarkable Leane, who said he collaborated with Edoardo in designing it.
The 3.5-carat ring was estimated to cost $100,000, with a diamond expert, Tobia Kormind, revealing that the ring was a more modern design to that of Kate Middleton, Princess Eugenie, and other royal princesses.
On her wedding day, Princess Beatrice had the honor of adding the diamond and platinum-made wedding band to the engagement ring, while her husband wore a vintage gold ring designed by Josh Collins.
