Prince William and Kate Middleton

A little late I know but I felt that, even though I couldn't blog yesterday, the occasion to post about the amazing engagement ring couldn't be missed.

I think it's lovely to see an engagement ring with a bit of colour. The 12 carat Ceylon Sapphire is framed by 18 diamonds and set in white gold with a delicate yellow gold band, not quite what I would call a usual choice for an engagement ring. I think what is even lovelier than the ring itself is that William said by giving Kate his late mother's engagement ring Diana is also involved in the occasion. What a lovely sentiment.

Rumours have already been sparked that look a like copies are already in the making but I don't see how you could replicate this ring in a cheaper way and hold the quality which makes this ring sparkle. (the actual ring is rumoured to be worth around £250,000 after being purchased for £28,500 for the engagement of Diana Princess of Wales and Prince Charles, quite an investement!)

I wish them both a lifetime of happiness

(I also can't wait to see the wedding rings!)
