Prince William, an heir to the British throne and the eldest son of Princess Diana, announced his engagement to Miss Catherine Elizabeth Middletown. Resting on her finger is the ring once worn by the Princess of Wales, one of the few keepsakes that William reserved after his mother’s passing. It is a symbol of a cherished past that has already gone before us and it is a piece of a promising new journey that is unfolding before our very eyes. It is, according to many experts, one of the most coveted pieces of jewelry in the world.
Today a limited edition replica of this timeless heirloom has been made available through the joint efforts of the British Historic Society and Sterlington Collections
