Necklace is amazing! It's a pity she didn't had a nice updo.
Perhaps a forecast of what we can expect in jewels in Australia/New-Zealand?
I hope so! Just so nice she had a look into the vaults.

While I am glad to see Catherine wearing jewelry and that necklace is indeed lovely, I am not sure that it would have been my first choice with that dress. The fabric of the dress seems so delicate in weight that the necklace seems a bit heavy. I think I might have preferred the necklace that the Queen was given from King Khalid. However, that particular necklace was worn at least once by Diana which would only invite comparisons that Catherine doesn't need at this stage of her life. At least with the Nizam necklace, I don't think anyone has worn it except the Queen.

The necklace is gorgeous.

i don't understand the often quite negative comments about her hair; she's had it done, it's in curls, she looks lovely, her dress is lovely, the necklace is stunning very surprised to see her wear it as I've only ever seen The Queen in that particular necklace, but good to see Catherine (finally) wearing Royal jewellery (though i like her other jewellery too, but a Royal should be a bit different otherwise what's the point?)

What is interesting is that HMQ has been wearing that necklace quite recently, and in official pictures so it is a fairly significant piece for her to lend out. I'll try and find a picture.

It's a very significant piece of jewelry for Catherine because it's only been The Queen that has worn it.

Astounding necklace; nice to seen it worn after all this while. Let's hope to see the appearance of more unseen bijoux from the vaults.

Has any other woman worn it since the Queen has had it, before the DoC?

No - one of the reasons its significant. Queen has been wearing this until very recently - as in no one had realised that she had stopped!

Wow so not even Diana ever wore it. I think it's a signal from the Queen for sure.

Duchess of Cambridge Jewellery 2: December 2011 -

I agree with you - the necklace is spectacular, but really something must be done with her hair!!

Nice to see these significant pieces on a younger person. I think it is right to say that the Queen is generally known not to lend too much of her jewellery to the younger royals but youth does make them seen in a new light.

Well the Queen was even younger when she first wore this so it seems right to me

What a waste! She could have absolutely rocked a sophisticated updo leaving her neck and decolletage to showcase what looks like her wedding earrings and that wonderful work of art that is the Nizam of Hyderabad necklace all perfectly displayed by a really beautiful dress. Instead we got "nipping down to the supermarket hair".

Duchess Kate

Check the further down the article the messier the hair looks.

I don't think her hair looks messy at all. It looks styled and curled to me.

I absolutely love this necklace. I hope this means that Kate will start rocking major jewelry at evening events.

That necklace is eye-popping and I'm glad the Queen let Kate borrow it for the evening. I do wish Kate had worn her hair back or up just to let everyone get a better view of the jewelry but it's almost a habit with her. Remember this necklace where she wore her hair down? Kate Middleton shines at Sun Military Awards in strapless velvet dress and diamonds | Mail Online Everyone was frustrated because they wanted better pictures but her hair kept getting in the way?
