So, there's a big trend happening now that's hard to miss:
I've always loved that ring. Diana had great taste--she picked the stone, apparently.
I have mixed feelings about trends like this (which I'll get to in a second), but if you're in the market for a pretty Princess ring, I found some great options:
First, you have the faux, it's-okay-if-you-loose-it-because-it-was-cheap version. Lab created sapphire and cubic zirconia in sterling silver. $55.
Then there's the mid-range version. The sedan of rings, if you will. Blue and white sapphires in 10 karat gold. $299.99.
And finally, this would be going whole-hog. A vintage ring with a natural sapphire and 16 rose-cut diamonds. $2,600.
And now for a question. When you really like an item and wear/use it all the time, do you HATE it when it becomes a trend?
I can't really explain why, but I get all crabby when something I've been wearing for years suddenly becomes The Next Big Thing. I have several sapphire rings, and I'm kind of miffed that all of a sudden they're cool. They're everywhere, and I'm annoyed. Maybe because I feel like this makes mine less special? I dunno.
Has this happened to you? Perhaps with a different trend? Maybe somebody can analyze my brain?
