Fairy tales do come true – it could happen to you!
Well this one did!
The beautiful young lady was dreaming of the day her charming prince would go down on one knee and propose with a gorgeous sapphire and diamond ring.
Wait on ….
This really did happen! On November 16th 2010 worldwide news broke of the engagement of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Of course the ring was once the engagement ring of the late Princess Diana. It features an 18 carat blue sapphire surrounded by 14 magnificent diamonds. One of the most famous engagement rings of the modern day it was purchased for A$60,000 in 1981. It is now valued at A$649,500.
If your birthday is in September – lucky you! The gorgeous sapphire is your birthstone.
The Greek meaning of the word sapphire is “Blue Stone” – but it is also found in green, yellow and pink. Known for its magnificent blue shade it’s so bewitching that the ancient Persians believed that the earth rested on a giant sapphire and that the blue of the sky was simply a reflection of the stone.
It is sometimes called the wisdom stone and is said to cure depression and spiritual confusion….
