Sapphire engagement ring
Zack said: “Kate’s ring, which was formerly Princess Diana’s, features a 12 carat Ceylon sapphire, originating from Sri Lanka.
“Like with most precious gemstones, the quality and value of a sapphire is graded by its colour and hue, which can range from a light, pale blue to a dark, royal blue.
“The sapphire is a deep, royal blue, of AAAA quality, making it amongst the most valuable of its kind.
“Globally, the sale of blue sapphires increased by around 300 percent at the time, and even now, thanks to Netflix show The Crown, sales of sapphires continue to surge, with vintage style halo designs being extremely popular,” he continued.
“Due to inflation and its legacy, we’d estimate the value of this ring to be around £390,000 today, however in 10 years’ time it’s likely this ring will be worth over £500,000, thanks to its history, beauty, and priceless legacy.”
