“Bridgerton” season two has all of it: lust, betrayal, a corgi, and, after all, spellbinding costumes. One piece of bijou particularly turns into a focus because the episodes progress: the engagement ring that Violet Bridgerton (Ruth Gemmell) passes all the way down to her eldest son, Anthony (Jonathan Bailey). Initially bestowed upon Violet by her deceased husband, Edmund, the ring is handed over to the viscount at Aubrey Corridor in episode three, and it goes on fairly the journey earlier than lastly winding up on the finger of its rightful proprietor.
The ring’s journey begins when Anthony proposes to Edwina Sharma (Charithra Chandran) in episode 4, pushing apart his rising emotions for her sister, Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley), with a view to fulfill the obligation of getting married and beginning a household. The household heirloom pops up once more within the subsequent episode when a jeweler forces Kate to strive it on for resizing functions in Edwina’s absence. It practically will get caught on Kate’s finger however does come off, subliminally hinting that she’s a way more correct match for Anthony than Edwina.
We do not see the ring once more till episode seven; after Anthony and Kate get pleasure from that intimate gazebo interplay, he grabs it to suggest to her the subsequent morning, however every little thing’s derailed by her horse-riding accident. We’re led to imagine he ultimately proposes to her with the identical betrothal ring, although we do not see her sporting it within the scenes following their offscreen wedding ceremony and honeymoon.

Just like Daphne Bridgerton’s betrothal ring from Simon Basset in season one, Kate’s engagement ring prominently options pearls — six of them, to be precise — organized within the form of a flower. A bezel-set diamond-like stone is on the heart, and the split-shank band is gold and options intricate, curled detailing. The fragile piece of bijou is nestled in a tiny heart-shaped field that is much more romantic than the black velvet cubes of right now.
Although the “Bridgerton” costume designer hasn’t confirmed the which means behind the ring, the symbolism behind the sparkler is open to interpretation. The flower form is exclusive and certainly one of a form, similar to Kate’s persona. The eldest Sharma sister recurrently goes towards the grain for younger girls her age in England, collaborating in actions like searching and discovering her youthful sister a husband fairly than doing so for herself. Plus, the floral association of the pearls is correct consistent with the daring colour palette of her outfits.
In Julia Quinn’s “The Viscount Who Liked Me,” the e book that “Bridgerton” season two is predicated on, the Bridgerton household really has a group of a number of heirlooms, and Anthony chooses one for Kate that is described as “a fairly easy gold ring, adorned by a single round-cut diamond.” It is a fairly stark departure from what we see on the present, however that is not completely shocking given the many variations between the e book and TV collection.
Whereas we wait to hopefully see extra footage of Kate sporting her ring from Anthony in “Bridgerton” season three, learn forward to take a look at each sighting of the pearl-covered heirloom to this point.
