Prins Charles and Princess Diana with the most famous sapphire of all

Jewellers marketing this type of jewel can therefore rest assured:

as long as they have a connection with Diana, sapphires are sure to never go out of style as engagement ring toppers.

The ring in question was a whopping 18-carat sapphire engagement ring, which the former schoolteacher picked herself, on the occasion of her engagement to Prince Charles, in 1981. By doing so, Diana continued the British Royal Family’s long-standing relationship with sapphires, which dates back to medieval times and continues to exist to this day. A large sapphire is one of the centrepieces of the British crown jewels, for example.

Inherited by Kate and William

That tradition was carried on even further recently, when Princess Catherine (herself of common origin, and with a story which in part mirrors Diana’s own) married Prince William. The sapphire engagement ring the Prince chose to give his fiancée was the very same one his father had put on his mother’s finger thirty-one years previously, and which had stayed in the family after Diana’s untimely death.
