Does the Marriage of Prince William Affect the U.S.?

Apparently it does. According to various reports this morning, there's now a surge in demand for sapphires, particularly replicas of Princess Diana's engagement ring; the one Prince William gave to his future bride, Kate.

"NEW YORK -- Minutes after the world first glimpsed the sapphire-and-diamond engagement ring Prince William gave his fiancee -- the same one Princess Diana once wore -- phones started ringing madly at a Manhattan jewelry maker."

Although I am against the whole royalty/entitlement/class status roles, I am always glad when the U.S. economy is boosted, even if just a bit.

  • I wouldn't want a replica of anyone's ring... I would prefer it was original and from the heart. I agree with boosting the economy though.

  • It gives the Media something to talk about everyday. They have been on News and Entertainment sites constantly. It is really a pleasant change from the usual "gloom and doom" news stories. Good for them!
