Millions of people admire the diamond and sapphire engagement ring of Diana, Princess of Wales. The world first saw it during the Princes Charles and Diana engagement’s announcement. After her tragic death, the family passed down the princess diamond halo ring to Prince William. After that, William, Duke of Cambridge, gave the piece to Catherine when proposing marriage to her. For the uninitiated, Catherine, also known as Kate Middleton, presently wears it.
Several jewelers have attempted to replicate the beautiful ring but to little avail. The latest image of actor Kirsten Stewart as her film Spencer’s Princess Diana just shows how difficult the task is even today. Stewart wears a copy of that iconic ring, but several people have opined that it does not have much similarity to the actual piece.
The princess selected the white gold ring with blue sapphire as the centerpiece and a halo of diamonds around the stone. It is among the most stunning princess halo diamond engagement rings in the history of the UK royal family. Another princess from the family with a halo diamond ring is Eugenie.
People say that the copy for the movie has an aquamarine or topaz centerpiece, which perhaps explains its different blue shade. Stewart’s ring photograph has the kind of light that could affect the center stone’s color. Anyhow, diamond experts do not still believe that it is a sapphire gem. According to them, it is most possibly an aquamarine or blue topaz gemstone, which would considerably reduce the worth of the real ring.
Spencer is a Princess Diana biopic featuring Kristen Stewart in the titular role. As for many social media users, the actor in the Spencer image appears a lot like Diana, but the same does not apply to her ring.
According to the experts, both rings have halo styles with oval gemstones and cut-down settings. Anyhow, the copy also seems to feature diamonds around the halo, unlike the actual jewelry piece.
Social media users seem to be more interested in Stewart’s character in the movie and her appearance in the film’s image as compared to the ring. The actor’s fans are eager to see her in the film. While many of them criticized the blatant difference between the real-life ring and the reel-life piece, they have opined that the other elements in the film’s photo were spot on.
