The Prince William Kate Middleton Ring

The Prince William Kate Middleton Ring
Kate Middleton’s engagement ring is an absolute royal stunner. It’s an oval-shaped sapphire surrounded by 14 rounds of diamonds set in 18 carats of white gold. The only thing that could be perceived as more beautifully moving is who it came from---a true prince. Prince William of Wales proposed in Kenya with the ring that once belonged to his mother Diana, the Princess of Wales. But was it truly a ring worthy of a Princess? What’s surprising is that it wasn’t actually an exclusive ring. The princess herself had selected it from Garrard’s Jewelers Catalog, which meant that anyone could purchase the same ring if they could afford the $65,000 price tag. Garrard’s has been the official crown jeweler of the British royal family since 1843, and the company is also responsible for maintaining and securing the crown and all of the royal jewelry.

The romantic proposal of Prince William and Kate Middleton is certainly fairy-tale worthy these days, but there’s something else that you may not know. It was Prince Harry; Prince William's younger brother, who gave the ring to William to propose to his girl Kate. After Diana’s catastrophic death in 1997, the two boys chose keepsakes from their mother’s estate. William chose an 18k Cartier Tank Francaise watch that Diana had taught him to tell time on, and Harry had chosen the ring. It all worked out. Upon learning that his brother was ready for marriage, Harry gladly gifted him with the ring instead. He knew that it was exactly what his mother would have wanted.

Perhaps it should be called the bluest ring that could. Diana’s ring serves to prove that at the end of the day it’s not just about carats. It’s about true acts of love, kindness, dedication, and unselfishness. If only everyone in the world could see it the same way. Princess Diana started a trend for brides by showing them that engagement rings could be more than just diamonds; they could be created from other stones. Now, Kate Middleton is following in her footsteps, setting trends with that same ring. She’s fueling a firestorm of purchasers who just can’t seem to get enough of the royal engagement replica ring. “The Princess Diana Ring” is doing more than well in sales by the Manhattan-based Natural Sapphire Co, at $1000 a pop.
