From the priceless crown jewels to her more "ordinary" pieces, there are a few that are extremely eye-catching and valuable. Here is a look at five stunning and unique jewels owned by the royal family.

Prince Harry proposed to Meghan Markle with a custom-made engagement ring made by Cleave & Company. The ring used an ethically-sourced center stone from Botswana, where the couple first vacationed together. On either side of the stunning center stone is two round diamonds from a brooch that belonged to his late mother, Princess Diana.

The massive brooch consists of two diamonds cut from the largest gem-quality diamond ever found called the Cullinan Diamond. The diamond was found in South Africa. The Cullinan III & IV brooch consists of the third and fourth largest diamonds cut from the stone. One is a 94.4-carat clear pear-shaped stone and the second is a 63.6-carat cushion-shaped stone. The exact value of the brooch is unknown but the original Cullinan diamond was valued at over £1.5 million.
