What was a gold band was now thinner and diamond-studded.
The ring was made by Court Jewelers Cleave and Company and Harry designed it.
It contains diamonds from his late mother Princess Diana's collection and a centre diamond from Botswana.
He revealed why he chose it during the couple's first sit-down interview with the BBC after they announced their engagement.
He said, ''The ring is obviously yellow gold because that's [Meghan's] favourite and the main stone itself I sourced from Botswana and the little diamonds either side are from my mother's jewellery collection, to make sure that she's with us on this crazy journey together.''
At Trooping the Colour, Meghan also debuted the eternity ring Prince Harry gifted her for the first wedding anniversary.

One of our favourite jewellery designers, Chupi Sweetman, has said that she is "overwhelmed and incredibly happy" after winning the Entrepreneurial Spirit Award at the prestigious UK Jewellery Awards 2018.
The Entrepreneurial Spirit category was awarded for the first time this year, to recognise an inspiring individual who has shown great determination, leadership and ambition to build a successful business.
“I’m utterly overwhelmed and incredibly happy to win the Entrepreneurial Spirit award," Chupi, who founded Chupi in 2013, said after the event.
"It was surreal to be at the event surrounded by some of the most brilliant designers from around the world – I felt lucky just to be shortlisted but to win was something really special."
"Everyone thought I was crazy, but standing on stage in London, winning our first international award, it all feels so incredibly real, and it’s all thanks to the love and support of our customers.”
The annual awards night took place at London’s Artillery Gardens on Wednesday 4 July, seeing more than 700 members of the watch and jewellery world come together to celebrate the industry’s achievements over the past 12 months.
Well done, Chupi – we're absolutely delighted for you.
Chupi Jewellery has warmed our hearts with this incredibly moving gesture. The Dublin designer Chupi and her team kindly created 280 necklaces for each of the Magdalene Laundry survivors.
The heartwarming gesture has strengthened our love of Chupi and everything she does.
She tweeted about the touching project: “For #DublinHonoursMagadalenes we made a necklace for each of the 280 women who experienced the horror of the Magdalene laundries. My brilliant team spent yesterday making, packing and writing cards to these brave women. Thank you @NorahCasey for making it possible to honour them.”
If you have been watching Lisa's videos, you must also have noticed the gorgeous rings she sports as she applies makeup. And you are not the only one.
Designed by William Welstead, the rings that she stacks have been her signature and apparently, they have been inspiring countless copycats.
“When I noticed companies were selling rings using my name, that was the moment I was like, ‘This is crazy,’ ” said Eldridge to Vogue.
Her passion for the gems has made her become a close friend of Welstead and the pair has collaborated to create the Lisa Eldridge Collection, launching tomorrow at London Dover Street Market.
Consisting of 25 gold and sterling silver rings, the collection is set with stone shades reminding the colour palette of an eye shadow box. All the stones have been sourced by Welstead in Bangkok and India.
As for the price point, the collection will be more affordable than Welstead's namesake work, ranging from 400 to 750 euros.
While the full collection will be stocked in Arnotts, the Deathly Hallows charm (€36), Hogwarts House Crest (€36), and Sorting Hat bangle (€36), will be available in Fields Jewellers as Weirs & Sons, as well as local ALEX AND ANI stockists nationwide.
Available from Wednesday, October 18, the range is set be a huge success among style-savvy muggles!

Universal Standard, a clothing line which caters for women between sizes 10-28, are all about setting the standard.
Indeed, their online mission statement declares: "We had become tired of making compromises, of always settling for what "worked" instead of what we really wanted, of sacrificing freedom of choice and personal style because of an arbitrary dividing line determined by size."
Whether it’s a piece of jewellery you bought to style-up a tired ensemble or a delicate chain gifted to us in our teenage years, it’s rare you don’t remember how and why you came to own a particular piece.
