the earrings are lovely, I have never seen them before? Could they be part of the necklace? has anyone seen both being worn at the same time?

If my memory serves me right, Sophie has only been seen wearing the rubies in the last year or so. The first event she wore them to was when she was pictured in the blue dress (1st picture above), which was one of her last public engagements before she gave brith and went on maternity leave. I would be very surprised if the earrings were part of the necklace - those things are quite difficult to put together, and rarely look as elegant and neat as the necklace does. My sense is that they are separate.

Ok I 'm having another look and it looks like the neclace breaks down into a braclet pic 3 and the earrings - the stones in the necklace are all the same size? I hope not, this is some of the best I have seen on Sophie>

I forgot the aquamarine clips HM Received on her 18th birthday. That would be a nice compliment to the aquamarine tiara--

The rubies are very beautiful. The aquamarine clips would also be very lovely on her.

Sadly, HM seems to be VERY stingy with allowing any females of the royal family to borrow her jewels....except the Duchess of Cornwall, or the former Princess of Wales.

I always found that curious....that she has such an impressive collection, but does not seem fond of lending them out....of course, we will never know the real reasons why..

Maybe because she do not wont the world to know (remember) the extent of the collection. tax reasons? or a backlash on the royals? Who can tell..

But we get to see the extent of her collection anyway when she wears the jewels herself.

The Countess also now has a diamond and sapphire brooch (probably the one you were refering to), in the shape of the crowned initials ER (Elizabeth Regina). It isn't very big, also in art deco style, and probably made for the Queen Mother in the late 1930s after her husband became King . Sophie started wearing this brooch in early 2003, and it was written that it was a gift from the present Queen in memory of the late Queen Mother. (the present Queen Elizabeth inherited all the jewels of her late mother)

found some more info on that brooch that Sophie wore yesterday
