Credit where it's due:
Thanks should go firstly to Josefine who posted the videos last year (see page 7).
No disrespect to shimoo but she has quoted Josefine's original post.

Hi everyone. I have been doing some research on royal jewels and was wondering if anyone knows the origin of the huge sapphire brooch / choker given to Princess Diana by the QEQM?

The Princess looked absolutely gorgeus in that neckalace. It would have looked great with the Lover's Knot Tiara.

Cool

The article and news story was misleading because Diana was loaned the necklace for that appearance, she never bought it or owned it. There was a rumor that Diana was going to buy it, but never did.

It was never clear what the origin was of the Sri Lankan sapphire surrounded by two rows of diamonds that The Queen Mother gave to Diana as a wedding gift as a brooch.

It may have come from the vaults as part of the collection of unset gems possessed by Queen Mary that she passed on to Queen Elizabeth after she became Queen Consort in 1936.

If it wasn't seen before 1942 there is also the possibility that it was part of the Greville inheritance. Does anyone know the date it was first seen on QEQM?

Pearls are also Princess Diana's birthstone (July 1st - Cancer). It's a truly iconic set of jewels, very elegant and regal! White pearls suited her complexion a lot, IMO.

Um, pearls are my birthstone, which is June. July is ruby.

My bad! You're absolutely right, pearls are Gemini's birthstone. Don't know why I got confused... Oh well, it's still a magnificent set.

The QM had one as well as the one she gave to Diana. I'll see if I can track down the photo of her wearing it after Diana got hers. So how can we be sure how long - if at all- it was "in the family" before D got it?

What a fabulous photograph of the late Queen Mother's beautiful sapphire and diamond earrings! and also a good view of the diamond ring now worn by the Duchess of Cornwall.

Possibly. The Queen Mother had many jewels in her possession that she wore only once or twice, or even never (i.e. the amethyst parure given to her by Queen Mary), that could have been passed on to Diana as a wedding gift.

Given Diana's status as the wife of the Prince of Wales, she received few jewels of any real importance from the royal collection. She did borrow quite a few pieces on certain occasions, but her most spectacular jewels were her wedding gifts from the Saudis and Gulf emirates.

These, and other personal jewels, were passed to William and Harry after her death. It will be interesting to see which ones show up on Catherine, as there weren't many to begin with.

Yellow gold jewels looked good on Diana, which is rare. They usually look nice on people with darker complexion. I wonder if Kate will ever sport these pieces - I've never seen her in yellow gold jewellery.
