I was a bit disappointed too with their choice of ring for Kate, for I too felt the ring to be bad luck, however at least they didn't spend a fortune on another one when so many people are doing it tough.

For me it's not so much the ring itself because I always knew that William or Harry would inherit it and one of their wives would wear it....it's just imo it doesn't look right on Kate's hand. Her fingers a bit big and the sapphire seems way smaller than it is because of it. For her finger type a smaller, rounder stone and preferably a diamond (not a colored stone) would have looked better on Kate. The reason why it looked so good on Diana to me, was because she had beautiful, long, slender fingers and the stone looked massive. It just worked so well on her...oh well I guess you can't have everything. Right kate?

Does anyone has a close-up of the necklace that Kate was wearing on her engagement day? I liked it quite a lot. It pretty much looks like a blue stone as well. Thanks.

From this article: Kate Middleton raids her wardrobe for Royal engagement portraits - Telegraph

The earrings which Miss Middleton wore were identified as the 'Hope' style in white topaz by jeweller Links of London, priced £275.

She wears these earrings in both photos:

Harry had the ring in the first place -- as it was said..
From 'The Divided Prince' p.230 by
Christopher Andersen, Vanity Fair
20th Anniversary Issue pp.221-252,
September 2003
"
Harry picked out the sapphire-and-diamond engagement ring given by Charles to the blushing "Shy Di" when she was just 19."

But I just read recently that the two brothers had made a pact to give the ring to whomever got engaged first.. is there any truth in that pact? Harry was ok with handing it over apparently. IMO Diana should have been buried with it or it should have been broken up.

I had heard that too but it was kind of a given that William would get engaged first since his relationship with Kate.....Catherine, had been going on longer and was more serious that Harry's relationship with Chelsey.

What a waste of such a beautiful jewel that would have been. Much better that the lovely Kate (and the rest of us too) gets to enjoy its beauty for all her life.

I have read that William inherited Diana's ring. I believe that People magazine a while back reported that. At the end of the day I don't think we will ever know for certain.

William and Harry both inherited Diana's ring, as well as her wealth and material possessions, equally divided between the two sons. Diana's will is a legal document and has been made public. You can simply google this. Diana didn't have any special instructions on her will about specific items going to which son nor was there any other monetary provisions for other people.

People magazine is correct that William inherited the ring. They report this because it suits their purpose. But they intentionally neglect to mention that Harry also inherited the ring.

If Prince William gives Catherine another ring, I hope that it is a square one because that shape would suit her hand better. To continue, I think Catherine would look good in the Queen's fringe tiara (I believe it was Queen Mary's) and in that "triple strand" diamond necklace that was called the George VI in a book I read. Finally, when Catherine has her hair up for a tiara, I hope that she does not wear either shoulder pads or a wide neckline.

With Catherine's engagement day jewellery, I hope that William gave her the necklace and earrings (they look like sapphires) because I hate mean Rich People.

I think this is a wonderful idea.

So does anyone know what Catherine received from William for Christmas? Havent seen or heard anything about it. Thought he might have given her a piece of jewelry or something.
