In response to the hype over Kate Middleton and Prince William's recent engagement, QVC is now selling an affordable replica of her stunning engagement ring.

The real royal bauble, which was worn by the former Princess Diana after becoming engaged to Prince Charles in 1981, features a dazzling oval 18-carat blue sapphire encircled by a sparkling border of clear white diamonds.

QVC's "Princess Simulated Sapphire Ring" is a cheaper alternative, selling for just $39.54 (€28.80) on the company's website. The ring is available in sizes 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 and comes with a lifetime limited manufacturer's warranty.

"I've always felt that any girl could become a princess. It's my pleasure to offer a ring that has become a royal sensation. Having a long relationship with the British Royal Family, I wish the couple a long and happy marriage," said Kenneth Jane Lane, the jeweler who created the knockoff for QVC.

QVC, Inc. is a multinational corporation specializing in televised home shopping. Founded by American entrepreneur Joseph Segel in 1986, QVC broadcasts in five countries (US, UK, Germany, Japan, and Italy) to 180 million households worldwide.

In addition to QVC, other companies that offer replicas of Middleton's engagement ring include the Natural Sapphire Co. in New York. For $977.50 (€714.92), you can buy a 0.85-carat natural untreated blue sapphire ring with 0.35-carats of surrounding F VVS2 round diamond accent stones created in 14K white gold.
