Would You Wear A Copy Of Kate’s Engagement Ring?
The sapphire ring, once worn by Diana, is being copied all over the world.
The world now has “Wedding Fever.” And it all started because of those two crazy kids: Prince William and Kate Middleton saying they’re engaged. Kate’s Issa dress- the one she wore to the announcement photo call-sold out in minutes. Now copies of her engagement ring are popping out all over!
This is the same engagement ring that Diana wore. The above photo is of Kate’s hand wearing the stunning ring. Prince William stated at the photo call the reason why he gave Kate his mother’s ring was, ‘my way of making sure my mother didn’t miss out on today’. The platinum ring has an oval blue 18-karat sapphire surrounded by 14 small white diamonds. The market price for a similar ring would be around $150,000.
When Diana received the ring, copies of it seemed to spring up over night. Now it’s happening again. Here are a few of the look alikes for sale.
