Remember the sapphire ring worn by Diana, Princess of Wales?
At the center of the ring is a 12-carat oval blue Ceylon sapphire set in 18-karat white gold. Surrounding the stone are 14 diamonds. At the time, the ring was available to anyone who wanted it.

Prince William honored his late mother by proposing to Kate Middleton with the same ring.
The ring was crafted by Garrard and priced at 28,000 British Pound Sterling, or about $35k in USD today (not accounting for inflation).
Now, a copy of the ring is estimated at a half-million dollars.
It was Princess Diana and Kate Middleton who upped the value of the ring. The Duchess of Cambridge wears the ring with a gold wedding band.
