Yes, I checked photos and it appears it is the same, solid white gold (I suppose) at a bottom part, and studded with diamonds on the upper part.
Back then she wore it on the other hand, with her wedding rings on the left hand. Now she wears it sometimes instead.

She has worn the necklace more than once. She wore the necklace at the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh Diamond wedding service in 2007.

Thanks to Molly2101 for the photo.

Sophie wore the necklace a lot in her first few years of marriage, but as far as I can recall we have only seen her wear it in 2007. That is the most recent date. She wears her earrings a lot.

I love her engagement ring, particularly the heart diamonds on the sides. Perhaps they no longer fit? She hasn't worn them in quite a while.

Her engagement ring is said to be one of the most expensive in the family, though I suppose Catherine's (and Diana's) ring is worth A LOT more.

I imagine, though, now it is worth a lot more than what it was purchased for?

Sophie's ring is said to have cost ú105,000 which is a hefty price tag.

If you look closely at her ring the diamonds on the side aren't hearts, they are actually trillions. They resemble almost a pear shape, but the trillion is not as long and are more wide than the pear cut.

I love your Facebook page, I love checking to see if any of Sophie's things have been IDed.

I noticed you have added a lot of images of her unidentified jewellery, and I couldn't help but notice a necklace which appears to have the initials E and S. That is so cute. How old is this necklace and where did you see the image of her wearing it? The image is second from the left on the bottom row of images.

This image

Also noticed in that section a necklace 3rd from the left, which I believe she let Louise wear for Trooping the Colour 2011. Lady Louise. Difficult to see if it is the same necklace, but I am quite sure it is.

I also like the pearl section. Edward gave her another pearl necklace for their first anniversary. Royal Ascot June 2000

First of all, thank you for liking me page! :)
The ES necklace (I think you are correct!!) is at least since 2009, photos found at Zimbio:

Also, it looks like Lady Louise IS wearing the same necklace you mentioned, it looks like a ring:

I didn't know that pearl necklace was given to Sophie on their first wedding anniversary. Thank you!

I love that Sophie has a necklace with their initials on it, that is so cute. I would have thought it was an old necklace, and perhaps it is, but it is nice that it was worn in recent years. Such a sweet idea. I believe it is the symbol that they put on their Christmas cards to friends too, as it was mentioned in an article one year.

I also wish she still wore her signet ring Edward gave her early in their relationship which she wore on her left pinky finger. She wore it a lot in the first few years of their marriage, and I believe the necklace had her family's crest on it. It matched Edward's signet ring, which he still wears today.

Seriously, can't I have a Prince as a boyfriend/husband?

Is there somewhere a photo of that ring and necklace?

Info on Sophie's signet ring:
after "Edward & Sophie" by Judy Parkinson:
"In 1997 Edward gave Sophie a gold signet ring engraved with her family's lion crest, as a symbol of his love."

ID on Sophie diamond cross:

It is by Theo Fennell.
I added pics to Sophie's albums. Enjoy!

I knew Edward gave the signet ring to her but I am sure she was seen wearing it before 1997...I love that he gave her a matching signet ring to his own, very adorable. It's almost as cute as the necklace Sophie wears with the E&S on it.

Thanks. Or at least, what she wore that day?

Or was from this banquet?

Here are all the tiaras Sophie has worn:

1 2 3 4

My sole favorite here is her wedding tiara. The rest are boring in my opinion.

While I'm not enthralled by any of Sophie's tiaras, especially her wedding one, I do like the art-deco aquamarine one with the matching pendant and earrings in the third photo. The color stones look beautiful with her eyes.

I think the button one could be fine with an upswept hairdo.

Does anyone know if the tiaras are hers or they on loan. Where did they come from?
