Royal Engagement Souvenirs

Of course everyone's heard about the Royal Engagement by now! Who's feeling a little down because Prince William is getting married and the bride is not you? Don't feel too bad! Feel royal by getting your very own royal engagement ring!


The engagement and wedding business is HUGE in Asia and it should be to no one's surprise that as soon as China heard about the royal engagement, the first thing they think of is: business. A factory in China somewhere is mass-producing the-princess-to-be's engagement ring.

The engagement ring, which is a blue sapphire with diamonds, belonged to the deceased Princess Diana and was shown off to the public by Prince William and his fiancée Kate Middleton in November. The couple is set to marry in April.
The royal couple’s ring may have cost about 30,000 British pounds ($47,000), but the replicas are going for a wholesale price of 3 yuan (about $0.50) for acrylic and metallic alloy rings, or 50 yuan (about $7.50) for knock-offs made of zircon or copper/silver combinations.
No offense, I'm not a big fan of it, but if you are, just keep an eye out on eBay. I'm sure someone will be putting it up for sale soon :)


  1. uhmm..why is her ring finger sticking out like that? more graceful princess-to-be. XD

  2. nah i'll pass, never really like gems on my rings, kinda not hit that age to wear big colour rocks!

    ps: i think owls are a big hit on rings now!

  3. I really like it! I always wanted a gem stone as my ring or a crulity free diamond..just knowing what some ppl go through to get diamonds is not worth it to me..although her ring has diamonds on it..but I still like the is very unique!
