LONDON, ENGLAND - NOVEMBER 16: A close up of Kate Middleton's engagement ring as she poses for photographs in the State Apartments with her fiance Prince William of St James Palace on November 16, 2010 in London, England. After much speculation, Clarence House today announced the engagement of Prince William to Kate Middleton. 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. (Photo by Arthur Edwards - WPA Pool/Getty Images) *** Local Caption *** Kate Middleton
The manager at Ben Bridge in Horton Plaza, Keith Newton, said the royal ring has been a topic of conversation among his staff and customers as well this week. He's not surprised there's a race for replicas here in San Diego.
“I do have some nice selections of those in some smaller versions," he said. They don’t have all 12 carat sapphires but if you want something in that size or larger we certainly have it.”
