When Prince Williams announced his engagement to his long-time girlfriend, Kate Middleton, the fashion world went ga-ga over her sapphire and diamond engagement ring, once owned by William’s mother, Princess Diana. We here at TBF love the ring because it’s not some passe HUGE diamond rock, but an understated ring ( well at 18 carats as understated as it can be) that has real meaning attached it.
For those of us whose princes are on tight budgets (or for those of us who are still waiting for our prince to come) there are plenty of ways to her ring look, without owning half of England. Check out our picks below:
