I would think its just due to the changing times. Back in the tiara to the premiers days, it was also unheard of for women to attend church without a proper dress, hat and gloves on. Now its common place to wear just about anything to anywhere and its acceptable.

In the changing economies too, perhaps the extravagant and glitter of expensive jewels and the common place fur stoles and coats have also been relegated to the chests in the attic as we've become more thrifty by necessity and for a lot of us, animal fur for clothing has become a world wide campaign to eliminate the senseless killing of animals for fur.

One thing I am so glad has been relegated to the chest in the attic though is the corset or girdle. How uncomfortable those must have been eh? Now we've got Spanx to shape us comfortably in most cases.

I'd find a tiara worn to a film premiere to be strange these days. Tiaras seem to be worn mainly for State events now.

The Duchess of Cambridge attended the 100 Women in Hedge Funds black tie dinner.
The Duchess complemented her outfit with the late Queen Mother's diamond and sapphire earrings.

I love tonights earrings! Stunning! I'm a fan of the art deco style. And sapphires for Kate is always great. I hope these are more of a gift/longtime loan so we will see them more on her!! Always great when she digs into the royal jewels!! :) She has been on a roll jewellry wise!

I wonder if these were a bequest to Charles who then lent/gave them to Catherine.

Id guess that Charles who got many of the Queen Mum's (via the Queen who decided what she wold like to keep for herself and then gave Charles many other bits) pieces decided to gift these to his daughter-in-law. Camilla has got many of the pieces from the QM and now its Kate's turn to get some pieces. I'd imagine some will be left for Harry's future wife as well

Great to see some more of these jewels being brought out. And sapphires are beautiful.

As I understood it, the Queen Mothers estate was left in its entirety to HMQ, thus avoiding Death Duties. The Queen then lent the PoW some of the jewels we have seen his wife wear. Whether these earrings were lent/given to the Duchess of Cambridge by him, or by HMQ we will probably never know for certain.

I do like the earrings. They are lovely. They'd be even lovelier if they could be seen! I wish Kate would wear her hair up more at evening events, where jewellery is more important.

Exactly! Very nice to see. I hope these are a gift/longtime loan and that we will see them on Catherine alot. They fit her style and of the sapphire is perfect with her ring!
