“Bridgerton” season two has it all: lust, betrayal, a corgi, and of course, charm costume. One piece of jewelry in particular comes into focus as the episodes progress: the engagement ring that Violet Bridgerton (Ruth Gemmell) passed it on to her eldest son, Anthony (Jonathan Bailey). Originally, the ring was given to Violet by her deceased husband, Edmund, the ring was given to the viscount at Aubrey Hall in episode three, and it continued on its journey before finally settling on her finger. its rightful owner.
The journey of the ring began when Anthony proposed Edwina Sharma (Charithra Chandran) in episode four, brushing off his growing feelings for her sister, Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley), to fulfill the duty of getting married, getting married. The family heirloom reappears in the next episode when a jeweler forces Kate to try it on for the purpose of resizing in Edwina’s absence. It almost sticks to Kate’s finger but doesn’t come off, nominally, implying that she’s a much better match for Anthony than Edwina.
We don’t see the ring again until episode seven; after Anthony and Kate enjoy that intimate interaction with the gazebo, he took it to propose to her the next morning, but everything derailed due to her riding accident. We’re led to assume that he ended up proposing to her with the same engagement ring, even though we don’t see her wearing it in their behind-the-scenes scenes. wedding and honeymoon.

Similar to Daphne Bridgerton’s engagement ring from Simon Basset In season one, Kate’s engagement ring featured pearls – six pearls to be exact – arranged in the shape of a flower. A diamond-like stone sits in the center bezel, and the bracelet on the split is gold and features intricate, winding details. The delicate jewelry was housed in a small heart-shaped box that was much more romantic than today’s black velvet blocks.
Although the “Bridgerton” costume designer has not confirmed the meaning behind the ring, the symbolism behind the sparkle is still open to interpretation. The flower shape is unique and one-of-a-kind, just like Kate’s personality. Sharma’s eldest sister regularly goes against the odds with young women of her age in Britain, engaging in activities such as hunting and finding husbands for her sister rather than doing it for herself. Plus, the flower arrangement of the pearls suits bold color palette in her outfit.
In Julia Quinn’s “The Viscount Who Loved Me,” In the book on which “Bridgerton” season two is based, the Bridgerton family actually has a large collection of heirlooms, and Anthony chose one for Kate which has been described as “a rather simple gold ring, decorated by a round-cut diamond.” It’s a pretty obvious departure from what we see on the show, but it’s not entirely surprising because many differences between books and TV series.
