I think that it's the same one gold bracelet and that like you said the light hit it and it looked sliver ....

I agree with you too Kate seems very proud of them and they seem to have a real significance to her because she wore them so frequently while in Canada. This makes me think they were Diana's earrings. Still, the shape and relative size of the stones is markedly different and leaves a very small question mark, which is all the fun in guessing

I personally think the earrrings are quite a classic design, and may well have come from the vaults, because, to me, the earrings do appear different from the ones Diana wore.
As to whether they have any real significance to Catherine is difficult to tell. She has worn quite a lot of blue since her wedding, so it could be argued that she wore them because the earrings matched.

I'm actually not much of a fan of those earrings, they're just a bit old fashioned to me. I hope William actually gets his cheque book out and buys Kate some stunning modern jewels. Goodness knows he can afford it.

Given the stock of goodies in the royal vaults, I suspect every time William feels generous towards Catherine, he will just give Granny a call and get a few baubles out rather than buying something new.

Heirlooms are meant to be passed on and who would be more suitable to wear Diana's jewelry than her son's wife.

Diana had saphire-diamond ear-rings in two different sizes. Catherine appear to have been wearing the smaller ones.

Oh, of course there's lots of jewellery in the vaults for her to choose from. But most of it is quite old and looks very much 'of its time'. I think it would be nice to see some more up to date styles and designs in the jewellery department.

I love to see the old stuff, but I have to agree with you some new bling would be very nice to look at...

I do agree EIIR and Lady Ann. A lot of the Winsor vault jewellry is not at all flattering for modern day dress. In past times, jewel size was of more importance than actual elegance. So a few fresh designs, like Princess Charlene's Ocean Tiara would be most welcome. I do think Kate will opt for the simpler, classic designs.

whatever she wears will complement her and her choice of clothing...the earring are beautiful and a great choice because it dosent draw attention away from her clothing but it add itselfs to the whole ensemble ---again another great choice from princess classic fashion

The earring of Diana looks different than Catherine's earrings... are you sure they are the same?

The diamond and sapphire earrings in question appear to be the ones from Diana's diamond and sapphire wedding suite wedding gift. There are the original earrings and also the ones she made from the watch strap and they are smaller. Therefore my comment about two sizes.

Do you know something about the pendant the Duchess is wearing in that picture? It seems to me there are diamonds on it:

Only because I saw the blog yesterday. Frankly, I believe it is a very pedestrian piece.
