Kate Middleton’s Engagement Ring For Less!
With the royal wedding fast approaching, many are keeping a close eye on the style savvy bride to be, Kate Middleton. Already setting trends before her walk down the aisle, Kate’s engagement ring has been the most talked about piece of jewelry since the Hope Diamond!
Originally the engagement ring of the late Princess Diana, the stunning bauble was provided by Garrard in 1981, the official crown jewelers of the monarchy. At the time, the 18 carat oval blue sapphire ring, surrounded by 14 small diamonds, was reportedly worth 30,000 pounds ($65,000).
Now on the hand of the future princess, the ring is truly a symbol of timeless elegance. As a royal fashionista, Kate’s ring is bringing colored gems to the forefront, particularly on engagement rings.
