Kate Middleton is currently in possession of a sapphire engagement ring, given to her by boyfriend of 9-years Prince William, now knock-offs of that ring have become the must have accessory of the holiday season.
While the $100,000 ring is out of the reach of most buyers, the $1,000 replica according to New York jewelers is flying off the shelf.
According to ring maker The Natural Sapphire Co. orders have been coming in so fast since the wedding announcement that they can’t make duplicates quickly enough.
While $100,00 for a ring is quite expensive, heck $1,000 for a replica isn’t that cheap either, the estimated $40 million cost for the royal wedding is by far more expensive.
Fun fact: The ring Middleton is wearing is the same one that Prince Charles gave to Princess Diana when they first became engaged in 1981.
