I really want to know how many jewels Diana received in her life time, and where did she get those huge South Sea dangling pearl earrings from?

No...doesn't appear that anyone does ...the two links indicate as much.

Why is any of Diana's jewelry auctioned? I thought they were willed to William and Harry.

The only one I can think of that was were the swan lake suite. And that is explainable because they weren't hers. They were designed for her by Gerrards but she never paid for them before she died. The earrings in fact we're not even finished when she died. She was the original wearer but not owner. The jewelry house sold them some time later and they have been auctioned at least twice. Had she purchased them before her death, maybe waiting until whole suite was finished, yes they would have belonged to her sons.

When were any of Diana's jewels auctioned off? I don't recall any sold except the pearl and diamond necklace she wore the last summer of her life when visiting the ballet I believe and I think it was up for auction, but didn't sell as far a I can recall.

Well does anyone know the origin of the Sapphire and Pearl choker? I've read two possibilities it came from the Greville bequest or Marie Feodorvna jewelry collection.

Do we assume the sapphire choker went to her sons? The one that was a wedding gift from the Queen Mother. Would love to see that worn by Kate...along with those gorgeous sapphire earrings that seemed to match it.

Technically a brooch. She later added it to pearls.

As it was a gift from the queen mum, and not on loan like many of her other pieces, yes I'd suspect it is with her sons. She wore it post divorce.

I think Kate may wait to wear such massive pieces until POW. She tends to favor smaller pieces. Even the major bling she borrowed, are smaller stones, not as in your face.

Yes and there's that whole Saudi (I think it was Saudi) suite of Sapphires ...lots of jewelry of somewhere in a vault. Bracelets, watches, rings, necklaces, earrings, chokers etc.

Seems like there was another set of stones from Kuwait or Bahrain ..somewhere in the M.E. emeralds?

Yes, the Saudi sapphires.

Chez Chiara: Saudi Royals' Gifts of Jewellery to British Royals

Some jewels she was given are questionable. Ones from the queen are of course loans. And jewels they receive on tour I believe belong to the royal collection, and not the individual who recieved them. Though worn by that individual.

But the sapphires were a wedding gift from the crown prince so I'd think they'd belong to Dianna personally. And now her sons.

Delhi Durbar Emerald parure. That's the set where she wore the choker as a headband also. Not sure if that was a private gift or a previously existing set.

In checking I think that comes from the BRF.

The Dehli were made for Queen Mary and she left them to her granddaughter. The queen allowed Diana to keep them after divorce on the understanding she could never sell them, and they would revert back to the crown on death.

Diana also had the sultan of Oman suite, but considering it was given on a royal tour, likely reverted back to royal collection.

She had diamonds as well. Camilla has received rubies and emeralds from the Middle East.
