Like the Duchess of Cambridge, does she have a penchant for sapphires? Symbolising fidelity, truth and sincerity it is hardly surprising that sapphires have long been favoured by royalty and noblemen.

Perhaps she would prefer to channel her inner Coco (Chanel) with pearls? The ultimate Goddess stone, pearls are associated with water and the moon (unsurprisingly, given its appearance), both of which are considered feminine by many spiritual systems.
Or emeralds for your green-eyed girl?
