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.
