Kate Middleton’s ring still front and center

From their engagement in 2010 to the wedding in 2011, nearly the whole world was interested in hearing the latest news about Prince William and his fiancée Kate Middleton. Women particularly were enraptured with Kate's fashion sense and took note of her favorite dresses and jewelry. This trend has not waned, even though the royal couple has been married for more than a year.

The Duchess of Cambridge's engagement ring is still something of interest to many people. Originally belonging to the prince's mother, Princess Diana, Kate wears a sapphire stone encircled by diamonds on a gold band.

The ring was put on display recently as the couple went to the Singapore Botanic Gardens to view a new hybrid orchid, named the Vanda William Catherine, according to Us Weekly Magazine. The ring was shown in most of the pictures taken at the event, as the duchess reached to smell various flowers.

Statement jewelry of this sort is extremely popular, especially since the debut of Kate's ring. Even if the time for engagement rings is past, buying an anniversary band featuring traditional blue, yellow or pink sapphire stones is a very trendy option.
