Watch: William and Kate’s best style moments
The Duchess of Cambridge’s engagement ring, which once belonged to the late Princess Diana, could be worth about £390,000 now, according to jewellery specialists.
Prince William proposed to then-girlfriend Kate Middleton in Kenya in 2010, with the ring that his mother had worn during her relationship with Prince Charles.
The famous sapphire piece was bought for £28,000 back in 1981 when Charles proposed, but could fetch around £380,000 nowadays, according to specialists at Est1897.
Ben Jarret from Est1897 said: “Royal engagement rings often contain family heirlooms, with diamonds being passed down and often re-set into new bands.
“Kate’s is no different, with Princess Diana’s engagement ring passed onto her from William. The ring features a 12-carat oval blue sapphire, cut into facets, and surrounded by fourteen solitaire diamonds. The setting is made from 18 karat white gold.
“On their tenth anniversary, we estimate that the ring is now worth £390,000 based on the value of the stone and band, although with the ring being an iconic cultural piece, it could fetch hundreds of thousands more if it ever reached auction.”
