Kate Middleton Inspired Engagement Rings: Get the Look for Less
Posted on September 10 2014
With the news that Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, and William, Duke of Cambridge, are expecting their second child, I thought it would be appropriate to highlight her stunning sapphire engagement ring. Many women crave the look of this engagement ring because of its timelessness and elegance.
Kate Middleton’s ring originally belonged to Princess Diana. The ring has a 12-carat oval blue sapphire, which is set in 18 karat gold and was manufactured by Garrard & Co. I have selected my favorite sapphire engagement rings from deBebians that pay homage to the Duchess of Cambridge’s ring.
This blue sapphire engagement ring closely resembles the ring that belongs to the Duchess of Cambridge. It features a plain band and a prominent, sparkling white diamond halo. One may choose either a 1.00 ct, 2.00 ct, or 3.00 ct center stone. This ring may be paired with any number of wedding bands, including a plain wedding band or a curved diamond ring.
For a woman that would like a more understated diamond halo, this oval sapphire engagement ring is a lovely option. The u pave band adds even more sparkle to the ring while it also gives the ring a contemporary look. A u pave eternity ring would create a perfectly matched bridal set.
If you adore the classic color combination of blue sapphires and diamonds, but do not necessarily want an oval shaped ring, a cushion cut sapphire may be the answer. This ring has a double split shank as well as unexpected diamonds that decorate the basket. This engagement ring may also be paired with any number of wedding bands, including a u pave wedding ring.
