The announcement of the royal engagement of Prince William and Kate Middleton has Jewelers around the world anticipating a high demand for replicas of the famous ring.

The Sapphire that now sits on Middleton's finger was the same one worn by Princess Diana and inspired a slew of replicas in past.

In Peoria, the owner of Bremer's Jewelery, has a replica of the engagement ring and believes her store will soon see an increase in sales for one reason.

"I think when celebrities have something special, it makes you feel special if you're wearing it, too, regardless of if they have one that is worth a million dollars. But, the one you buy is only 400, 500, or a thousand dollars, if it resembles that, you feel like you're a part of the club," Ronda Daily of Berner's Jewelry.

Prices for a replica can start as low as $500.
