The blue sapphire, originally the engagement ring of Prince William’s mother Princess Diana, was worth £28,000 when bought in 1981, but is now valued at £300,000. The sparkler heads a list of the world’s top 20 most famous engagement rings, showing how much each one has appreciated since purchase.
Lady Diana Spencer and Charles, Prince of Wales, became engaged in February 1981. Her engagement ring consists of 14 solitaire diamonds surrounding a 12-carat oval blue Ceylon sapphire set in 18-karat white gold. It was created by jeweler Garrard and cost at the time, 28,000 pounds sterling.
“Having diamonds form the royal collection that Princess Diana wore makes the ring priceless.” Experts say the ring, which has a classic appearance, includes diamonds that can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars — or as high as $350,000, depending on its quality.
Her ring costed $65,000, but this was around 1980. Today, if you were to buy a replica, you pay anywhere around 70 or 80 thousand dollars. Also, just bc it belonged to Lady Diana and Kate Middleton, its probably worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Prince Charles proposed to Diana with the ring in 1981, when it was valued at £28,500. In typical Diana style, the Princess herself chose the ring while shopping at crown jewellers Garrard of Mayfair.
Especially when it comes to jewelry. Princess Diana's sapphire engagement ring, now sparkling on the finger of daughter-in-law Duchess Kate of Cambridge, is worth about $480,000 today. That's more than 10 times what Prince Charles paid for it (about $45,000) in 1981, estimates Vogue UK.
