NEW YORK (CBS) The frenzy surrounding Prince William's engagement to Kate Middleton has spread from newspaper covers to commemorative china to, now, replicas of Middleton's engagement ring.

The ring, an oval sapphire surrounded by diamonds that once belonged to Princess Diana, is the inspiration for similar pieces being sold at both ends of the price spectrum.
