When Philip wanted to propose to his beloved Elizabeth in July 1947, he was not a well-off Greek Prince, as per Good Housekeeping's report. Therefore, his mother, Princess Alice of Battenberg, stepped in to help her son. She gifted Philip with some diamonds taken from a tiara she was given on her wedding day. 

Jewelers Philip Antrobus Ltd. worked with the Greek royal to create the sparkler featuring a 3K round-cut diamond in the center with ten smaller ones set in platinum. Pretty normal for the heir of the British throne, right? But 70 years later, the Queen still wears it, so we guess some things can't be measured in terms of money.
