Elite queue for replica of Princess Diana's sapphire and diamond engagement ring

Perhaps the most famous ring in the world is the sapphire and diamond engagement ring worn by Diana, Princess of Wales that now adorns the Duchess of Cambridge’s left hand. 36 years after the original was ordered by the Prince of Wales, replicas of the ring have surged in popularity.
Garrard, the Royal family’s jeweller of choice for almost three centuries, said there has been “a significant uplift in sales” in recent months.
Today the smallest version of the Diana-style ring starts at £5,000, though you would need to spend considerably more if you wanted the same-sized sapphire as the original.
