DIANA'S SAPPHIRE RING

From the Bvlgari B Zeroi ring to the Cartier love bracelet we have a list of classic pieces that will never go out of style. Of course, every woman wants to have some pieces in her jewelry box but the best part about these pieces is- they will last a lifetime. Oh, and just because some pieces cost an arm and a leg doesn’t mean they will continue to retain their current value- better to go for something that has already proven its worth.

Here are five masterpieces and iconic pieces which are permanent fixtures in the jewelry world even though they are not immediately recognizable but they have gained immense popularity over the time.

DIANA’S SAPPHIRE RING

The mesmerizing ring consists of a 12-carat oval blue sapphire. This is one of the most iconic jewelry pieces, given to Diana from Prince Charles upon their engagement. It is surrounded by fourteen solitaire diamonds. There have been immense recreations of the ring since the most recent Royal engagement and it now belongs to Catherine Middleton. The ring was originally created by Garrard & Co., the former Crown Jeweler. Originally when Diana chose the ring, in 1981, it cost £28,000. Today it’s valued at around £300,000.

DIOR MISE EN DIOR EARRINGS

Dior designer Camille Miceli has successfully brought the pearl trend back with an asymmetric piercing style earring.

This is a vintage inspired style which immediately adds finesse to any look.

Dior has designed different versions of these classics. A pair of Dior mise en Dior earrings initially would cost up to £260.00 but now the price goes up to $645 because obviously, it’s a classic.
