I'm trying to find all the times Diana wore a tiara. Here are all the ones I found so far:

Spencer Tiara:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23

Cambridge Pearl Tiara:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21

It should be noted that some photos may have been taken on the same day.

That was very interesting to see. I would have guessed she would have worn them more often. I was also tickled to see a new-to-me photo (Spencer Tiara 7) in there.

CSW,
Thanks for that great summary. It is easy to forget so many of the outings until you see them all together.

I think though, you may be missing some of the State Opening of Parliament photos. You can usually tell be Diana's hair style and white state dress. I may be wrong but I think there are a couple of gaps.

Out of interest, as Kate got Diana's engagement ring, is there a second ring for Harry's future wife? I'm not saying there should be, just wondering if Diana ever owned another ring of any kind that could be used by Harry to give to his wife.

Diana did own/wear on occasion a beautiful aquamarine ring, an emerald ring, and a smaller sapphire ring.

Did Princess Diana's sisters, Lady Sarah and Lady Jane, receive any of her personal jewellery?

Diana's Rings

This is true. There was also a ring that came with her sapphire Saudi Arabia set that she got as a wedding gift (first pic below) you can see the whole set. It is said that Diana took apart the ring and put in on the bracelet to make this choker she often wore (second pic). The watch was then made into a bracelet.

But in terms of a ring for Harry's wife I think using a sapphire from this set would be a good bet. He could choose to leave the existing diamond setting or put it in a new setting to put a different twist on it. The sapphires in this set are pretty close in size to Diana's engagement ring so it wouldn't feel like there's competition among William and Harry's spouses. Click image for larger version

Diana, Princess of Wales Jewellery 2

I agree. I've always loved the sapphire Saudi set and have been disappointed that Kate hasn't worn any of these pieces yet. In fact, they haven't been seen in quite a while. Diana wore them early on in her marriage but was rarely seen in them after that. She used the choker quite a bit but I'm afraid the beautiful egg sized necklace and earrings have been tucked away and I hope not dismantled.

Here's some more photos of the Saudi suite. As you can see the choker has gone through two re-workings. The first she left the bracelet as it was but mountain it on a velvet fabric but the last re-working she switched out the larger sapphire with a different diamond motif and replaced it with the sapphire from the ring with the sunburst diamond motif. She also took it off of the velvet fabric and put blue beads (maybe small sapphire beads) in it's place.

And one more...this looks like small sapphire and diamond earrings. Very dainty for the 80's. Any info on these would be appreciated as well.

Re: The emerald choker. According to Suzy Menkes in The Royal Jewels this is the Queen Mary's cabochon emerald and diamond choker which was a wedding present from the Queen and Prince Charles bought an emerald and diamond bracelet bracelet to match.

Well, the Duchess has not yet had too many opportunities to wear major jewelry. The emerald jewels really require an event "in long" and of course the Duchess needs to like the design and the colour. Probably she finds the set too opulent, maybe more suitable for mature ladies, after all the Duchess is frêle and petite.

My question isn't with the emerald choker. I would like to know about the earrings that she's wearing with it. Do we know if they are part of the Queen's collection? Or a gift to Diana? She rarely wore them again after these two occasions.

We don't know whether the emerald choker has returned to the Buck House vault or whether it is part of the late princess' legacy that has been left to the Duke of Cambridge. Possibly it may be part of Prince Harry's inheritance.
Or the Duchess may simply not like it, or emeralds generally.. Until it appears again, we simply do not know !

I'd be astonished if the emerald choker didn't return to the Queen. IMO, Diana's jewellery was pretty much unremarkable, apart from those pieces loaned by HM which are now back with her. I'm not surprised Kate's chosen to wear very little of it.

Besides the difference in personalities and tastes, probably the Duchess of Cambridge has a preference for jewels not associated witn Diana, Princess of Wales. Just to avoid the eternal comparisons. Who knows...

I'm sure that's part of it although, let's be honest, other than the engagement ring 99% of the population couldn't name a piece of jewellery Diana wore if their lives depended on it.

On the pure aesthetics, though, a lot of Diana's personal jewellery probably wouldn't really appeal to someone in their early 30s.

Ironically, even though Diana's engagement ring is her most famous and identifiable piece of jewelry it's probably my least favorite. I've never liked it, it looks like costume jewelry imo.

On the other hand, that emerald-and-diamond choker.... wow!!
