It’s been made official that Kate Middleton is Prince Williams fiance and they are expected to wed in spring of next year. They have been together for about eight years and became engaged during a recent vacation in Kenya.
As for her engagement ring, it is an oval blue 18-carat sapphire ring encircled by 14 diamonds. It is actually Princess Diana‘s engagement ring and he wanted to pass it to Kate, as it is very special to him and it’s his way of including his mother in this moment of his life.
Here is a closer look at the engagement ring:
The ring is eye-catching and has a unique style. I love when an engagement ring includes other stones rather than just traditional diamonds.
According to UsMagazine.com, the ring is estimated to be worth $150,000. Back in February 1981 when Prince Charles proposed, this same ring was priced at $65,000.
