(Newser) – It’s worth $45,000, but you can get Kate Middleton’s engagement ring for $3 in China. Or at least a really cheap knockoff. Lookalike versions of the ring—a sapphire and diamond affair that was Princess Diana's—are all over China’s top online mall, ranging in price from $3 to $15, AFP reports. Back in Britain, the royal family is having a Christmas get-together today—but without their star couple or their ring. Seems Prince William's stuck on military duty.
