Rumours are rife that Prince Harry will be proposing to the 'Suits' actress and now former jeweller to the royals Stephen Barnard has revealed what kind of ring he thinks he will propose with, if he chooses to.

He said: "I think if Harry were to propose it would be a ring with a large diamond, with a few little diamonds set around it. I think it will be stylish, I think it will be a large cut diamond, with maybe a dozen or so pave stones, lots of little diamonds all set together, around it.

"I don't think he will choose a sapphire like his mother's. Precious stones are dated. She is young, vivacious, American and stylish. I don't think they will be very traditional. I think they will be more modern. I think it will be platinum, with maybe a few eternity rings to go with it."

And Stephen also revealed some details about the iconic 'Swan Lake' necklace he helped make for the late Princess Diana.

He added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "When I was working at Garrard's you never knew who you were making things for, that was kept private for the buyers and we never spoke about it. We were just given paintings with the designs on. We never met any of the customers. We would know we were making for someone important, and by what you were making, someone wealthy.

"The most memorable piece I made was for Princess Diana. I didn't know who I was making the necklace for at the time, I only found out at a later date after she had died that it was for Diana. It's something that you hold with you all your life. It's very exhilarating to make something like that."
