I feel Princess Diana wore it best, but think her grandmother, Lady Sarah looked great in the Spencer Tiara too. Never realized how much Diana and Harry favored her facial structure, especially the jaw and cheekbones, imo.

I agree, but I also think they made a very good point about the tiara suiting Diana better as a young bride than it did as she got older. It's very fairy tale, and therefore suited best for someone younger. I think she looked perfect in it as a young woman, but I prefer her in the Cambridge as she got older.

Is wearing a tiara that uncomfortable?

The Cambridge Tiara was supposed to be heavier than the Spencer Tiara. I think that wearing metal and stones on one's head would be uncomfortable after awhile.

There is no proof of this so we can speculate all we want. The only thing we know for sure is that Catherine was shown three tiaras to choose from to wear on her wedding and she chose the Queen Mother's Cartier scroll tiara. There was no info given on what the other two tiaras were.

I think that IloveCP talks about rumors that Diana was going to wear this tiara at her wedding, but she choose family and less heavy piece; not about Kate.

Indeed, the Spencer tiara was more delicate for a young girl just out of her teens on her wedding day in comparison to the Lover's Knot that suited Diana better in her latter years.

On this link from Kiki McDonough (designer of Catherine's citrine earrings and green amethyst earrings worn on Christmas):

Stars - About - Kiki Mcdonough Jewellery

Towards the bottom, there is a picture of Diana wearing a pair of Kiki McDonough earrings. Diana is wearing a pink with purple trim suit.

Is it the same earrings as this: http://www.dianasjewels.net/Earrings/0000277199-014.jpg

I'm not sure if these pictures were taken on the same day. The hair looks different in both. But just wondering what earrings Diana is wearing.

Thanks.

No, those earrings actually belong to the Spencer family and Diana borrowed them for her wedding day. In fact, one of her sisters wore them to William and Kate's wedding and had to get them back from the traveling exhibition of Diana's wedding gown to do so.

Yes - they belonged to Diana's Mother, the Honourable Mrs Shand Kydd. They are quite lovely.

The most instantly recognizable gem in the world, I think. Every girl's favorite choice of e-ring at the time of Charles' and Diana's engagement.

Given that her family already had a tiara, it makes more sense for her to wear that tiara rather than one from the royal vaults. I don't remember the possibility of another tiara being mentioned.
