At long last! It's wonderful to see Catherine wearing a tiara with proper, full pictures! I was worried earlier we may only have seen the dreaded "arriving in a car" shot. The whole ensemble is quite understated but all the sparkles of the tiara and earnings (and the dress) really make up for it!

From the live stream while she was seated, her bracelets look pretty substantial and sparkly.

I love her bling tonight! i prefer the halo tiara to be fair, but the lotus is absolutely more approriate for tonight...Not a fan of the earrings though.

To me one of the bracelets look to the the wedding gift from Phillip to the Queen which was made up of the rest of his mothers tiara - its quite chunky and the one Kate is wearing is very similar in these distance shots could be wrong though

I was expecting her to wear the Halo (which isn't one of my favorites), so I'm glad to see the Lotus. It looks terrific on her. I also thought the earrings were a nice compliment to the tiara.

Any ID on the diamond bracelets she was wearing.

I think that her bracelet was the wedding gift from Prince Charles. It's nice to see it again.

She is wearing 2 bracelets

The one on the left is chunky and reminds me of the Queen's wedding gift from Phillip using his mothers diamonds

The one on the right is finer but i can't identify it

She looked soo great. A very good balance in jewelry. And a very big thing that she is loaned the wedding gift bracelet, especially since the queen still wears it regularly.

Order of Splendor posters think...

...that the chunky one is the one made from Queen Mary's choker, previously worn by the Queen Mother. There is a picture (in a tweet on the O of S) which shows the QM wearing it, and incidentally wearing a pretty fabulous movie star-like gown. I can't tell if that's the bracelet Kate is wearing.

Just saw the bracelet above -the wedding bracelet- that looks more like it.
( the Queen' s wedding, that is)

She looks fantastic...flattering makeup, hair is up(thank goodness) and a wonderful nod to their Chinese guests by wearing red!


Those bracelets are to die for...gorgeous!

From what I understand, the earrings are the Queen's diamond chandelier earrings. Kate has worn them before; once in Los Angeles, I believe, and also when she attended the Diplomatic Reception in 2013.

I agree she lots gorgeous. I feel like the pictures don't do the dress enough justice though she's beautiful in it.

I just hope that from now on the Cambridges will be regulars at State Banquets. We really need to see Catherine in big jewels more often.

Thanks for the info on the bracelets. I'm happy that the Queen is loaning Kate such personal jewels.

Catherine's jewels are stunning. She looks fantastic. The bracelets and earrings are just as beautiful as the tiara.
