I hope it gets worn by either Harry's wife or Kate, but aquamarine would be an unusual engagement ring choice for every day. (But still possible!)

Seems like now days I'm seeing more colored stones as engagement rings instead of diamonds so we can hope!!!

Yes. Color is quite the trend. If people have the money, it's coloured diamonds, which can be far more expensive than the standard diamond. But other coloured stones have grown very popular.

An aquamarine of that size and quality certainly would make an appropriate engagement ring.

From what I read it is flanked by diamonds from her family. It was a recent piece before her death.

She had some lovely jewelry. I hope we see more of it worn by Catherine and whomever Harry marries...and even Charlotte when she's old enough.

I thought Harry inherited almost all of Diana's jewelry?
The reasoning was that William would have access to everything in the royal vaults so Diana wanted to balance things a bit.

If Harry did give a ring, I think he'd go with an emerald or possibly a diamond. An aquamarine is a lesser gemstone.

Diana's will is in the public record. You can google it. William and Harry each share it equally

I don't consider that aquamarine to be lesser anything. It's gorgeous!

Yeah I think Skippyboo is right, the boy shared equally...at first (before it all was released, her will) things were said differently but it got cleared up later on.

Emerald ring with diamonds would be nice.

It would be beautiful, but emeralds are so easily chipped or broken...not that she will be doing the gardening. For a tiara, I vote for the Strathmore Rose or the Rundell.

According to Hugh Roberts the Rundell no longer exists.

You got me interested so I googled it: The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Rundell Tiara

Not sure what's happening but I am finding myself drawn to jewels lately. What does it mean? But I just bought a pearl-earrings-cum-pearl-necklace set. So nice.

I would love if they took one of the historic necklaces and set them as a tiara. They have some fantastic pieces, add some new bling via an old piece.

How about the oriental circlet? It's a very airy design, and would look great against her dark hair (assuming it's MM).

Queen Victoria designated that the oriental circlet must only be worn by Queens. I don't see the BRF breaking that tradition.

Does anyone have a list of tiaras in the BRF that are not on QV's list?

Most tiaras that are personally owned by Queen Elizabeth II were purchased/ acquired after Queen Victoria's passing. The older pieces from the Victorian age are usually part of the Royal Collection trust.

How about the double meander tiara, only seen once on the Princess Royal decades ago?

The Oriental Circlet Tiara is lovely, I think.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Oriental Circlet

Double Meander Tiara - which one from below -

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Meander Tiara

Or

Tiara Mania: Queen Elizabeth of the United Kingdom's Double Meander Tiara

The second. Daenerys specifically asked the double meander, which is the second, which belonged to the queen mum.

The first is more commonly referred to as the Greek keY, though it is in a meander style. And it belongs to Anne. I don't see Harry's wife wearing it.
