If you listened to the news yesterday, you will be aware that it's finally official. Prince William of England and Kate Middleton are engaged.
William wanted his mother to be a part of his happiness,l so he presented Kate with the 18 carat blue sapphire and diamond ring that once belonged to Prince William's mother, Princess Diana.
The couple will get married in either the Spring or Summer of next year and continue to live in North Wales while Prince William works as an air sea rescue pilot for the RAF. The couple became engaged during a recent holiday in Kenya having been together for eight years.
My guess is that sapphires, which are already very popular gemstones, will become THE hot gemstone in the next year or so.
