Ring of Blake Lively in “A Simple Favor” was inspired by the Ring of Princess Diana

There is a lot to take in if you have watched the trailer of a new film “A Simple Favor” of Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick. If you take a closer look and check-out power suits of Lively and trying to find out ‘what happened to Emily’. You probably missed something special; the ring of Lively looks much similar to a specific royal’s iconic. The costume designer of the film, Renée Ehrlich Kalfus said in an interview with ‘People’ that it was a planned decision to make similar as royal jewels. This specific design was selected as a similar ring of Princess Diana.

Kalfus added that the ring was referred to the antique sapphire & diamond ring once worn by Princess Diana. Later, Prince William used this ring to propose to Kate Middleton. She added that she needed to do something more attractive, but the film director, Paul Feig considered this option as more on the nose. The People indicated that the ring presents an important point in the film. It was once worn by Lively’s mother-in-law character.

The real-life ring from Lively’s husband Ryan Reynolds isn’t the same royal history ring, but it has some surprising similarities. The ring of the actress has an oval center stone surrounded by diamonds, instead of a 12-karat sapphire and 7-karat light pink diamond. The original ring of Diana had the platinum band, but Lively’s ring in the film features rose gold. But you should wait in finding more until expected release date of “A Simple Favor” on September 14th, 2018.

Blake Lively's Engagement Ring in A Simple Favor Was Inspired by Princess Diana's

Most people are familiar with the ring history of Princess Diana, but its original story basically presents far beyond the era of the Princess of People. The actual history of the ring goes back in the 1840s when Prince Albert had a sapphire & diamond approach specially designed for his wife Queen Victoria. She wore it with blue-sapphire on her wedding day and continued wearing it until the death of her husband in 1861. It was then used by Queen Elizabeth II. Prince Charles also used this approach as inspiration and selected it for Princess Diana.
