Alexandra Manley Engagement Ring

This one is a fairytale like story which most women would be really excited to know. An extravagant ring might be the highlight of most famous engagements, but this one is more romantic not because of the ring but of their love story. A Prince and an extraordinary girl met, and got engaged.  It was in May of 1995 when Prince Joachim and Alexandra Manly announced their engagement to the public and many were surprised. Their story started in Hong Kong where they first met. It is also where Alexandra was born and raised, she is five years older than the Prince but who cares? In love age doesn’t matter anyway. She is a well-educated woman that speak fluently different languages such as English, French, and German when they met. She then became fluent in speaking Danish during their marriage. At first she had no idea that she got a real Prince charming, and she was shocked to know it. Exciting, isn’t it?

Then she talked about their engagement that happened during their holiday in the Philippines with the press articulately and confidently. He proposed with a large central diamond ring flanked by round cabochon rubies, with a yellow gold band. The central diamond looks like a cushion cut.
