Monarchy Monday, The Engagement Ring That Keeps on Giving
Vanessa will you marry me (George Clooney asking me to marry him again) he then presents a beautiful 18-carat blue sapphire ring, the ring now sits perfect on my finger, this time I say yes. And this is the reoccurring day dream I like to have. Prince William has proposed to his long time girlfriend Catherine Middleton (commonly known as Kate). Kate Middleton's engagement ring is now a iconic ring, 18-crate blue sapphire set in a platinum, 14 diamonds sitting pretty on a 18-crate white gold band. Most of you will remember this is the engagement right with which Prince Charles proposed to Lady Diana Spencer in February of 1981. Diana keep the ring on her finger until after her separation with Prince Charles and later divorced. Prince William has had the ring in his possession since his mothers untimely death. Giving Diana's engagement ring to Kate Middleton, Prince William has said "this is a way to include my mother in our wedding" this ring is very special to him and Kate now. We at Urban Buddha at 1602 (the we part is just me and two cats) love that William gave this ring to Kate, we also would someday like a blue sapphire ring too. So today will be in search of a knock off, less then £ 20.00, about $ 30.00 bucks U.S blue sapphire ring for the rest of us without a prince as a boy friend.
