Kate Middleton's engagement ring; previously belonging to Princess Di herself
The impending Royal Wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton is all everyone’s talking about at the moment – especially the ring that he proposed to her with. The ring in question is the same one that Princess Diana wore during her engagement to Prince Charles – a beautiful white-gold creation with a 12-carat sapphire inset. It really is quite something to behold, in an old Hollywood kind of way, and what with Miss Middleton swiftly becoming a British trendsetter, why not get your own piece of antique-looking jewellery? You don’t have to get engaged to wear one, either.
Classic, beautiful jewellery will always be in fashion – that’s why we’re strong advocates of the cocktail ring, a glamorous and classic way to add some sparkle to a simple outfit. Metallics and diamanté for the day, and deep tones of blue, red and purple for a vampy, festive look in the evening. Audrey Hepburn wore them, and so will we.
