Blue Gems And The Kate Middleton Effect

It has been a while since Kate Middleton and Prince Williams got engaged and married but, many style gurus who live by the pen never forget to complement Kate each time a blue gem gains market share. There is no doubting that, the Kate and Williams wedding was of historic significance but, the sapphire and diamond ring worn by her had far more significance than her marriage to Prince Williams. The palace might not agree with this statement but, for millions of Lady Diana admirers, the oval sapphire in the ring and the overall design concept of the jewel, brought back memories of the dazzling (late) Diana. It is widely reported that Prince Williams wanted his late mother to be part of the important event, he therefore presented the same oval sapphire in Kate's engagement ring. To clarify the meaning of the word 'same', this was the same sapphire that Lady Diana wore in her engagement ring a few decades ago.

So if we had to summarize the Kate Middleton effect on blue gemstones, this would be our unbiased opinion. The media hype did draw attention to the gorgeous sapphire diamond ring that, Kate Middleton received to mark her engagement. Kaisilver experts received several queries as many observers were under the wrong impression that, the ring that Kate wore was once worn by the late Lady Diana. With our global connections to leading jewelry and gemstone houses, we can confidently say that, the Kate Middleton blue sapphire ring included the same sapphire gem that was used in Lady Diana's ring. However the ring itself was remade in the UK, the design concept remained similar to Diana's ring.

We do know for certain that blue sapphire was known to be humans for many centuries. There was a time when only royals and aristocrats could own the gemstone! The gem continues to attract consistent demand and prices never seem to ease.
