No surprise here: USA Today reports that following Kate Middleton’s engagement, jewelers have been “flooded” with requests for replicas of the sapphire and diamond ring that once belonged to Princess Diana. Of course, most of these orders are for cheaper knock-offs as some jewelers estimate that the piece is worth at least half a million dollars.
So do we think boyfriends are actually going to be proposing with these copycat rings? Or that women are wearing them for themselves as fashion statements? [USA Today]
