Pippa Middleton got married to her long-term boyfriend James Matthews in May, 2017. 

While it wasn’t quite a royal wedding that matched the scale of big sister Kate Middleton and Prince William, it was certainly a spectacle to see as Pippa, 34, wow in a gorgeous wedding gown and impress guests with an awe-inducing reception.

But while the younger Middleton sister did things her own way when wedding Spencer Matthews’s billionaire brother, she did take inspiration from the Duchess of Cambridge in one way. 

Pippa picked out a wedding ring that is very similar to Kate’s famous marital band.

Pippa opted for a discreet band to adorn her wedding finger. 

And the style is much like the ring Kate received on her wedding day in 2011. 

Prince William in fact gave the Duchess a Welsh gold ring which his grandmother, The Queen, has previously gifted him on news of his engagement. 

The precious metal was then fashioned into a band by Wartski, a British family-run firm of art and antique dealers that specialise in Russian works of art.

The company have a history of working with the monarchy, having fashioned the wedding bands for Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles in 2005.

And Pippa is thought to have picked the simple design as not to distract from her eye-popping engagement ring. 

Her husband James, a former race car driver turned business owner, who is worth an impressive £2 billion, spent an estimated £200,000 on a ring to propose with.

The entrepreneur opted for a 3.5 carat Asscher cut diamond engagement ring.

Costly as the engagement ring was, it still doesn’t top Kate’s hand-me-down engagement ring that once belonged to Princess Diana.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s mother’s ring is estimated to be worth a whopping £300,000.
