A necklace which was a gift from the city of Victoria, British Columbia,of emeralds and diamonds in the shape of dogwood flowers. This has never been seen in public.
Perhaps the stones from this necklace were reset?

Then again Diana did have a penchant for costume jewellery, maybe this is a clever fake??

It has often been reported that one of Diana's favorite pairs of earrings--pearls--were purchased at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. Which ones are they? There are so many she wore.

BTW, they are no longer available. Too bad. Do any of the shops where she bought costume jewles still carry her favorites like Butler and Wilson's crescent moons and bow with heart earrings?

The Metropolitan Museum earrings were called the Venus earrings. They were faux pearl drops descended from a gold hoop. She wore them a lot from around 1990 - 1991. You can probably find them somewhere like EBay. The museum sold them for many years, so there must be many pairs out there.

The only pic I saw Diana, Princess of Wales using a sashe was the one from the State Visit of HM Queen Beatrix I of the Netherlands and HRH Prince Claus.
I never see a pic of Diana using a british sashe, because I think HM Queen Elizabeth II never condecorate her with one, so I would like to ask if someone could post some pics of Diana using sashes from other countries, for example during State Banquets she attended in London or abroad during several visits Prince Charles and her made.

Thanks in advance.

The late Diana, Princess of Wales received only one UK-decoration - the personal family Order of Queen Elizabeth. You can see this clearly in the picture in micas' post. It is a small picture of the Queen, in a diamond frame and with yellow band behind it. The Prinncess never received a real Order.

When Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands paid a state visit to the UK in 1982 she gave Diana a Dutch Order. I think this is the only order the Princes ever received.

Why? I have no idea. The Duke of York, Princess Royal, Earl of Wessex and Countess of Wessex also have very few Orders. It seems as though new rules does not "allow" them to accept Orders.

When Charles arrived to pick up his ex-wife's body, he was very aggitated about the fact only one of her favorite gold earrings had been found. The other was later found in the car. He also wanted her watch, a Jaeger lecoultre. What earrings were they? Did they have some sentimental value--and the watch, same question. Does anyone know?

But suddenly Diana-and you see this more in books on her--started wearing 3 or 4 dainty gold bracelets on her right hand. Were they gifts from Dr. Khan or someone? If you look at a good photographic journal of her, you will see them often starting in the late 80's early 90s. Just wondered what prompted it and if they had significance of a personal nature.

OK, I give up. Go to Diana page and middle link to old sites by Josephine. The first site on images (there are three featured on top), go to page 7. It's midway down, she's wearing a gold dress leaning forward--and there are the bracelets.

Help with mystery bracelets....

In the late 80s and early 90s Princess Diana always wore her patek philippe gold watch from Charles and then started wearing 3 or 4 slim gold bracelets on her other wrist. She wore them whenever she was not wearing her "grand" jewelry but they are often hard to see. Does anyone have a photo closeup or know the significance of why she was so attached to them?

Thanks,

Mary Shawn

Perhaps she was very fond of Philippe Patek's watches.
Hem, hem, not Philippe Patek but Patek Philippe.

Patek Philippe is considered to be one of the top brands of wathces in the world. So it's no wonder that the Princess of Wales was fond of her watch.

But I would be thrilled to see a picture of both the watch and the bracelets mentioned above. Most of the pictures that I've seen don't show the details that close.

Maryshawn, I know she had a charm bracelet given to her by Prince Charles at the start of their marriage. He kept buying her new charms to add to it. I always though that was sweet.

I remember reading that she wore a watch, I can't remember the brand but it could be Pillipe Patek, early on and it was special to her as it was given to her by her father. Then she got a watch from Prince Charles. Is this the gold watch she is often seen wearing?

You can see the gold watch and the charm bracelet in one pic and just the bracelet in the other.

I think the Queen was upset that she might have been wearing something with royal connections and wanted it all retrieved so no one else could get their hands on anything.

Wink Why am I not surprised Sophie??

The Queen doesn't want anything getting into other's hands. I am sure though she could have trusted her niece and nephew to handle things???

Is that confirmed, or just another rumour?

I think that by the time Pncss Margaret died the royals had realised that Kensington Palace was not as secure as they had thought. Having just lost their mother Viscount Linley and Lady Sarah would not have been thinking of making sure her jewels were secured. Has anyone ever thought that they asked the Queen to have them taken to Buckingham Palace for safe keeping rather than risk some light fingered servant taking them! (Just my thoughts).

I read it in a book that the Queen is very very concerned about her jewels. What the reason was that she rushed to Margarets apartment to get her jewels herself, I don't know.

I seriously fail to believe that HM hightailed it from BP to KP to collect her sister's jewels!
I have wondered if they had maybe already been taken to Buckingham Palace before Princess Margaret died as she was in no condition to perform public engagements and was vulnerable to being exploited by dishonest people.
