Jewels are great. But must say not my favorite tiara on her. I actually think the lotus suits her better. But still lovely appearance.

The jewels are amazing! I am grateful that we have great photos as well.
The Cambridge Lovers Knot tiara really suits the duchess,do we know if the diamond bracelet is a loan or a personal piece?

Yes, the tiara, earrings and bracelet are all on loan from the Queen.

I love this tiara on Catherine, so I'm glad to see her wearing it again.

I think we all would like it better with better tiara hair. I think the earrings look great with it! But her hair people need to figure out better hairdos to anchor a tiara and make those diamonds sing!
It's not enough to have a lovely up-do (or back-do, as in this case). The hair has to add to the display of the tiara. The Queen and Camilla both have regular hairstyles that tend to do this. Work to do.
But I refuse to be unhappy at any tiara appearance!

Duchess of Cambridge Jewels 3: January 2016 -

I agree about the tiara hair comment. This tiara could look stunning on her if there was more height to her hair. Lovely to see these loans from the Queen becoming more frequent.

Looking at the pic with all the senior royals together - the Duchess needs to be awarded a family order or some other order that allows her to wear a sash - she really looks "naked"!

I think that us why I find the lotus suits her better. With her present style, and not simply hair but that is major here, the more delicate tiara suits her. The hair style showcases the lotus better than the lovers not.

As much as she is duchess of Cambridge I wish she would pick something else. This one us so associated with Diana. She has years before she us queen consort. I would love to see her make a tiara her own like the lotus or another lesser seen one.

I'm not sure she has her pick of tiaras....perhaps there are only select ones she can use at this point.

I am always amused by the continuing assertions that the Lovers Knot was Diana's favourite tiara. It wasn't, the Spencer tiara claimed that honour. It was also considerably lighter. She claimed The Lover's Knot was so heavy it gave her a headache! As per usual, the DM got it wrong.

Speaking of "wrong", Catherine has yet to master the art of "Tiara Hair".
this latest foray into the art of wearing beautiful bling on her hair was a total bust. While the hairstyle would have looked wonderful with a gorgeous hat, there was no height in the hairstyle and the "Downton Abbey" style would have looked better with the 'Strathmore Rose' worn in the same way QEQM did . . . twenties style.

Only the Oriental Circlet, George IV State Diadem and a fringe necklace/tiara belong to the Crown, the remainder of Her Majesty's tiaras are her own.

Wrong thread. Catherine is not related to this tiara.

Actually I think Kate is making inroads in having the Cambridge Lover's Knot tiara as something that will personify her for years to come. She's giving new meaning to the Cambridge as she is the Duchess of Cambridge and in a way, the more she wears it, the more it will not be a specifically "Diana" tiara but as Diana's daughter-in-law, it kind of has the feel of something that has been passed on to Kate (as Diana's engagement ring was) through the family. I'm sure William has memories of his mother wearing the tiara.

The fact that the Court Jeweler's website and information on the Cambridge Knot Tiara has been posted here signifies to me that this is happening.

Its a stunning tiara and wonder what it would look like if the top layer of pearls were restored?


Its really becoming the Duchess of Cambridge's trademark piece!
