A ring fit for a princess... or two.

I definitely have chosen the best day to start my blog.
It is official, Kate Middleton has received the most fabulous and well-known engagement ring in the entire world.  As you may have heard, Prince William proposed with Princess Diana's sapphire engagement ring to soon to be wife, Kate Middleton of Berkshire, England. Not only is it über romantic to inherit your fiancé's most prized family heirloom, but she will become a princess and live with a rock fiscally equal (£250,000) to a moderate sized home on her finger.  However, the best part behind the story of the ring is that Prince William wanted his mother to be a part of the occasion by passing it on to his gorg fiancée.

The central stone is an 18 carat oval sapphire (stunning) with clustering diamonds set in white gold.  Princess Diana hand picked this ring for herself because she thought it was "simply beautiful." Kate chose to wear an amazing blue dress that matched the ring for the engagement announcement held today. One lucky lady.
