I know that in the past Diana's sapphire and diamond earrings have been debated, but IMO the earrings Diana is wearing in photo #2 (beautiful and big) and not the one's Catherine is wearing (beautiful and smaller) The size of the sapphire is very different.

I'd take either tho' :)

That's a nice review of Kate's pieces, but Hello! has an error in photo 6. Those aren't the earrings Kate wore at the engagement announcement; she wore a small pair of sapphire drop earrings. Here's the photo; click to enlarge:

I agree - I think they are the one's she wore in the formal photos by MarioTestino

Yes, here's one of the Testino photos where you can see the earrings they're referring to:

Nice Bracelet. Pretty soon she's going to be ready to put her shoes off and feet up until the baby comes, so bring on the bling until then!

No. Those were seen only on her wedding day.

It's good to see her sparkle like a princess!

I love those earrings and the different shapes of the diamonds. And I'm glad to see the reappearance of the diamond bracelet.

I love the earrings too. Don't they match the bracelet? Round parts of each?

Prince William's gem of a gift for Kate | Adam Helliker | Columnists | Comment | Daily Express

Prince William's gem of a gift for Kate

The Duke of Cambridge has been giving much consideration to the kind of gift he should give Kate to mark the birth of their son.

When Prince William was born Prince Charles gave Diana a gold medallion with William inscribed in his own writing and a gold charm in the shape of a W. But William wants to give Kate something more personal, a treasure that can form part of her own royal jewellery collection. I hear he has in mind a brooch featuring a pink diamond.

I am told that the Prince has enlisted the help of the Queen’s jewellers but also wants to be involved in the design. He knows that Kate prefers simple, modern settings and would like to give her something that could equally adorn a Zara day dress as an exotic evening gown. He had initially thought of giving her another item from his late mother’s jewellery collection– she already wears Diana’s engagement ring– but has decided that something individual and personal from him would be more appropriate.

"William has been giving this a lot of thought for a long time,” confided a member of his inner circle. “He’s got lots of ideas from studying history of art at university and decided on a pink diamond as a centrepiece because it is pretty and feminine. It will be a thank you present to Kate.”

As he didnt study history of art except early on as he moved to geography instead, I doubt the source. Mind you, I suppose georgraphy could tell where the diamonds are.

A member of his 'inner circle' is not going to talk to the media.

Unless William fed the story to someone in his inner circle to roust out a mole who he thinks is talking to the media.

Sapphires would be more appropriate for a boy, anyway.

I wonder if the earrings which Kate wore for the christening had any special significance - have we seen them before?
