What could possibly complement the very special engagement ring that Prince William has already given Kate Middleton?

A wedding band of Welsh gold, of course. Kate’s wedding band was created by Wartski from a piece of such gold that was given to Prince William by Queen Elizabeth shortly after his engagement, according to a palace spokesperson.

Wartski, a family jewelry business, have a history of creating rings for the royal family. They made wedding bands – also of Welsh gold – for The Prince of Wales and Camilla Parker-Bowles for their wedding in 2005.

Best Man Prince Harry will be entrusted with carrying the precious ring to Westminster Abbey on Friday.

There will only be one ring as Prince William has decided to forgo wearing a wedding band.
