Is there a picture of HM's chandelier earrings on loan to Catherine? To specify, pic of HM wearing those earrings.

I don't have a picture to hand, but I have seen it in the comments section once on the Order of Splendor blog.

Do you have any idea what topic it could have been? I was trying to find one for a long time.

A stunning collection of jewels. I love all the jewels here. My favorite is definitely the pearl tiara.
I can't decide between the Lover's Knot Tiara and the The Lotus Flower Tiara!

Call me a sentimental old lady but I'm going to have to go with the Queen's wedding gift bracelet as my favorite of all the top ten.

I had always known (well... since I got to TRF anyways) that the diamonds were at one time Philip's mother's from her tiara but what I've just learned from reading the top 10 jewels for Kate in 2015 is that Princess Andrew of Denmark's (Alice) diamond and aquamarine tiara was a wedding gift to her from her uncle and aunt, Tsar Nicholas II and Tsarina Alexandra of Russia in 1903. Considering the fate of the Russian royal family, I'm seeing much more of a historical connotation behind that bracelet than I did before.
