The dress would've looked great with some magnificent earrings and a nice brooch or bracelet. The overall looks is way too plain with jewelry kept to the very minimum.

I agree, a set a "statement" emeralds would be lovely with the dress.

I agree, a splash of colour from authentic gemstones would have popped nicely with the cream dress (even the pretty ruby earrings).

That said, unless she pulls her hair back her earrings and necklaces would be lost under all of that hair. Methinks that it is time for a trim.

IMAGINE indeed!!!!! Oh how I agree with you - but what I had in my mind's eye was the South Sea Pearl and diamond pendant earrings! How delightful they would look on the Duchess - they wouldn't be lost in all that hair!!

Prsonally I don't think Kate is up to wearing anything like Diana's pieces at the moment she doesn't seem to be all that comfortable in doing so and I guess that time will come but IMO she not there yet.

Hmmmmm., I see what you mean! I just wish she'd start to dress like a Princess - ie wear decent jewellery. She is after all the wife of the second in line to the British Crown and I honestly think she needs a decent Dresser to help her! I sense a little inverted snobbery here!

I remember the beautiful diamond chandelier earrings Kate wore with her lilac gown to the BAFTA event in Los Angeles at the end of their Canadian tour. I can't see why Kate couldn't replicate this extravagant look with a similar pair of dangling statement earrings in colored stones. She's not averse to wearing a style like these as we've seen.

Diana also wore costume pieces so it is not exactly unheard of.
It is also possible that Catherine has very few important jewels to wear at this time. It is not as if she and William have attended any events since their marriage that require her to wear family important jewels, and even then surely some of Diana's personal jewels will be going to Harry.

I think Kate is playing it understated right now - being newly royal, and also "austerity" environment if you will. We'll begin to see more bling in time!

Out of curiosity, I trawled around to get a photo of Kate with the earrings at the BAFTA event, and here it is:

Now something similar in colored stones with that white gown would have looked sublime!

Do we know how Diana's jewels were split up? I would imagine Harry could potentially inherit more as William will be getting the mother lode someday.
Even so, Diana had an awful lot of personal jewels, I can't imagine that Catherine has few important jewels.

Well there is no guarantee she has access to any of Diana's jewels, but I would imagine if she did step out in any of them there would be the inevitable Diana comparisons so that might be something they wish to avoid.

Lovely earrings from the Duchess today.
I'm afraid they don't look real (as in diamonds) to me, but still quite pretty.

Hard to tell whether they are real or not from that one picture. It would be a great pity if they were. If they are, I wonder if they were a wedding gift or not. It would also be nice if she wore a few of her wedding jewelry (I am sure she got many even though they asked for donations to their charity).
