A Bit of "Spare" Sparkle for Kate?

Unless you're living under a royal rock, you're probably aware that the Duchess of Cambridge is due to give birth to her second child any minute now. I'd imagine that William is probably looking for lots of ways to show his wife how much he appreciates her these days, so I thought I'd give him a few bejeweled suggestions for rings fit to honor the birth of a little prince or princess!

Kiki McDonough Grace Blue Topaz Round Ring

William has bought Kate several pieces of jewelry from Kiki's collections, and if they welcome another little boy in the coming days, a blue topaz ring could be the perfect addition to Kate's growing trove of Kiki jewels. The ring also features pave-set diamonds, and the entire thing is set in 18K white gold. (£895)

Tiffany Soleste Ring

If the baby on the way is a little princess, Kate's jewelry collection could surely use a bit of pink in her honor. How about this gorgeous pink tourmaline ring from Tiffany? Set in platinum, of course, it's also absolutely lousy with diamonds. ($7,800)

Annoushka Sutra Tanzanite Ring

Kate already has one very special blue ring in her collection, but surely this Annoushka ring, with its innovative design and its lovely combination of diamonds and rose gold with a stunning cabochon tanzanite, would be a welcome addition to any jewelry box. (£12,500)

Trinity de Cartier Ring

If I were Kate, I might nudge William in the direction of a classic Cartier Trinity ring. This one, which features pink sapphires and diamonds set in rose gold, would be just about the perfect ring as a thank you for birthing a royal, right? ($29,600)

Are you hoping for a new Cambridge prince or princess -- and even more importantly, what do you hope William and Kate will name the newest Windsor?
