The tiara is pretty and the necklace is beautiful for the reception but they didn't work together IMO. They should've been worn separately and with matching earrings.

I agree with you - and why did she wear pearl earrings?

WOW! Tiara alert! New one for Sophie. So HM has two aquamarine tiaras? Please correct me if I am wrong. I agree though, her whole suite should have matched...the dress and color of the stones and then diamonds around her neck does not flow evenly...BUT SHE LOOKS STUNNING!

My thoughts exactly.

I'm happy to see the King Faisal of Saudi Arabia necklace worn again after so many years! Maybe it's the first time a royal jewel worn by Diana is worn again (excluding her engagement ring and sapphire earrings worn by Kate, which were private jewels). And I'm also happy to see that the queen's small aquamarine tiara hasn't been dismantled to make the horrible bigger brazilian aquamarine tiara!
I only think she should have worn a pair of diamond earrings, the pearls didn't match with the tiara and necklace.

This diamond necklace was never Diana's - she wore it only once or twice, it is still worn by the Queen on occasion.

Maybe she brought in the pearls to work back to the Family Honour? That's the only thing I could think of.

I didn't said it was hers, I said only said she has worn it.
But I didn't know the Queen still wears it, thank you for the information!

I loved the necklace, she should borrow different pieces she has never worn before from the Queen more often. Amen!

It could be the start of Sophie, Catherine and Camilla wearing some jewels that the public and media haven't seen in a long time. There's a great deal of jewels in the vault that they could use and play around with (change to fit their own personality and taste).

The Queen has often worn the Faisal diamond necklace, which was created by Harry Winston to The King's order.

I believe the aquamarines in the smaller 1968 Sao Paulo tiara were used to create the redesigned tiara by Garrard's in 1971 that The Queen wears with her other Brazilian coronation aquamarines (which are of very rare and priceless quality).

It looks to me that the 1968 tiara may have been re-set with lesser quality aquamarines for Sophie's use.

Sophie's tiara is stunning! I wish the stones were a little darker though.

Loved the necklace but the tiara is not one of my favorites. If she were going to go that route I would much rather have seen her in the large aquamarine and diamond tiara she received in 2004. She wore it to Prince Albert of Monaco's enthronement ceremony.

To tell you the truth, I like the necklace better than the tiara. I wonder if it can be converted into a tiara.

All about Sophie's "new tiara".

Like I said in HM's jewellery thread, I like this tiara better than the Brazillian tiara, but I don't think it's that great.
