Prince William has chosen to keep with royal tradition and presented Ms.
Middleton with Princess Diana's blue sapphire engagement ring. The famous
diamond halo setting of her oval blue sapphire became an iconic design in the
jewelry world when it was first given to Princess Diana by Prince Charles.
Prince William and Kate Middleton have not selected a wedding date yet, but
rumors are swirling about the spring or summer of 2011.

Evan Guttman, CIO of The Natural Sapphire Company comments, "We have been
receiving a number of phone calls and emails inquiring about blue sapphires
and the design of Princess Diana's engagement ring."

The Natural Sapphire Company currently offers a reproduction setting of
Princess Diana's engagement ring.

The setting can be custom created to fit with any sapphire shape and
size. It is the perfect engagement ring for any fiance's finger.

The Natural Sapphire Company is a 70-year-old gem cutting company that
specializes in fine sapphires. Sapphires have grown in popularity as
non-diamond alternatives for engagement rings in recent years. Blue sapphires
now stand as one of the most popular gemstones for engagement rings, second
only to diamonds. The most popular sapphires are blue, but they are found in
all colors including the popular shades of pink and yellow. The most rare
sapphire color is "padparadscha," a pinkish-orange tone.

The Natural Sapphire Company has the largest collection of natural
untreated sapphires in the world. You can visit them online at:
