Princess Mette-Marit Engagement Ring

Crown Prince Haakon of Norway, heir apparent to the throne of Norway met Mette-Marit Tjeissem Hoiby through friends in 1999 when they were both attending Norway’s largest rock festival, the Quart Festival. The prince presented to Mette-Marit a very meaningful heirloom engagement ring. The ring is very unique in design and is composed of two crescent shaped rubies set in yellow gold and of a diamond that is originally belonged to his grandmother Crown Princess Martha Louise.

Despite of all controversy, Haakon and Mette-Marit decided to move into Oslo together with her young son. This decision became very hard with Haakon but this became the most careful way to introduce Mette-Marit to royal life. The engagement happened on December 1, 2000.
