Thanks to Jack Brooksbank, who proposed to Princess Eugenie in January with a Padparadscha sapphire, the blush-colored engagement ring has shed its pop culture taint (remember the pink diamond Ben Affleck gave Jennifer Lopez during their “Bennifer” days?)—and attained the royal seal of approval. The color both is rare and comes in a wide range of shades, which makes it all the more appealing.
