That dress in pic 2- not sure whether I like it or not! Really dislike the tiaras!

^ You would think QEII would be more forthcoming lending the bling to her long term, reputed favorite daughter in law.

Actually, I think Sophie has done rather well over the years, and has built quite an impressive collection of jewels. There are a fair few diamond necklaces, rubies and diamonds, aquamarines, and plenty more.

She has access to at least 3 tiaras, as many as the Princess Royal: her wedding tiara, the 5 aquamarine tiara, and the convertible aqua tiara.

The only conclusion I have ever been able to draw about the Queen and how she loans out tiaras is that she thinks they should stay in the vaults. Maybe loan 1-2 to the family that attend state banquets and international tiara events and that's it.

We on the forums may be tiara mad, but to the average person they are more a bombastic display of elitist wealth (IMHO). It creates PR issues that I don't think the Queen wants or needs. JMO.

Off topic, sorry mods. Had to say it.

I tend to agree with you. For most people, tiara's indeed are a bombastic display of elitist wealth, and I think the BRF are very cognizant of it. Which is why they tend to wear them on a few state occasions only.

I know, but really Sophie has been married into the family for a LONG time now. I get that Charles is way higher up the food chain, but compared to what Camilla has been allowed to wear, Sophie's are pretty paltry, IMHO.

What HMQ gave her daughter is pretty paltry as well.

I agree, I think Anne and Sophie have received pretty similar amounts of jewellery from HM.

Countess of Wessex Jewellery

She looks lovely at her 50th birthday celebration with Prince Edward and HM. Does anyone have the history of the brooch that she is wearing?

I think it's part of the dress; it goes right over the shoulder and onto the back of the dress.

Yes, it is mentioned as a "subtle embellishment on the shoulder" of her Victoria Beckham midi dress. Whatever it is, it looks lovely on her and if enough people compliment her maybe she'll take to wearing wonderful brooches.

(I can dream.)

I absolutely love her ring. It's so stunning. I love the shape and size of the diamond, and the hearts are so beautiful. It's one of my all time favorites. This ring is just regal, exquisite, and magnificent.

Sophie has worn beautiful jewels. She has not worn a lot of impressive tiaras however.

I love Sophie's engagement ring, its up there in my favourites. It's beautiful and I like that is "just" diamonds (even though they cost a reported £105,000!) They are timless and classic. They will be in style for years to come, just like queen Elizabeth's ring.

There was a few years where Sophie wasn't wearing her engagement ring or wedding band, just an eternity ring but nownsje is back to her engagement ring which I'm glad. Her eternity ring is also beautiful.

It is, indeed, a lovely ring.

IMO one of the best engagement rings worn by any royal lady.

Edward made a perfect choice for his wife's ring.

Her eternity ring is also really beautiful eternity ring. I wonder who chose that one.
