RepliKate for the Garrard’s Sapphire and Diamond Engagement Ring

I didn’t know of this until very recently, but Kenneth Jay Lane did a replica of the engagement ring.

I found one on Ebay for $11 USD and because it was so inexpensive and advertised as being my size, I bought it.

It arrived in a small white box with a black velvet insert.

The simulated sapphire appears more black than blue, but when place against a white background the blue shade becomes more obvious.

Here it is worn:

As you can see, it’s a massive ring. My hands are small, but even on larger hands this would be a very large ring. I estimate it’s about 30% larger than the real thing.

The seller listed this as a size 7, but it’s too slack on my finger. I believe this is a size 8.

I will be putting this up for sale. It’s beautiful, but I won’t be able to wear it if it doesn’t fit.

If you don’t mind a larger version of Kate’s ring, look for this on Ebay.

It’s no longer sold on QVC, but the listing and information are still available here. 

For those who are curious, my nail polish is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Nail Lacquer in Nude Now. I thought it would be appropriate to go with a soft nude, as Kate does often. 🙂
