Well that's why I think they will either share the jewels or split the jewels in half.

I like that there's a bit of a mismatch with the bandeau necklace and the pearl tiara and earrings. It reminds me of Queen Mary and Queen Alexandra and how they piled it on. They treated pearls as neutrals, like diamonds, so why shouldn't Catherine?

The present queen also sometimes wears her big ruby and diamond floret earrings with her pearls for an evening look.

I don't see how she could have done that, since she had to wear a tiara, and both the Lover's Knot and the Lotus have both diamonds and pearls. The Halo doesn't, but it would have looked too insignificant compared to the massive tiaras most of the other royal ladies were wearing.

The necklace was probably a special loan for this particular occasion, so she had to wear that as well.

Wow. I love the jewels. I don't see a mismatch- and this is coming from someone who tends to gravitate towards having things coordinate and match. But I don't see a problem here. It works imo.

That necklace is one of the most exquisite pieces of royal jewelry I've seen, ever. How have I missed it all these years?
I think the contrast between the delicate nature of the dress and the bold piece of jewelry is perfect, and the low-ish neckline shows it off well.

Oh I agree with you - the necklace is spectacular and compliments the dress beautifully!

I like to think that this basic ass blush pink dress is a good canvas for the fantastic jewelry she has on tonight. Because those are splendid

I think that necklace has been in storage for a number of years..a shame but you can only wear that with a certain type of dress and I don't think the Queen has wore that type of neckline in a long long time.

Kate seems to wear quite a bit of Sapphire jewelry so we'll see if it shows up as that piece or re-worked in the future.

I don't recall seeing her wear them before...do recall any specific event?

I'm sure there were pieces folks don't even know about, she had a lot of costume jewelry as well ...I'm referring to known pieces though.

Fabulous necklace, boy that mrs. Grenville really did know how to buy jewelry! Her poor posture almost ruins the effect for me. Kate, please watch letitzia

Horribly mismatched indeed. The only thing I can think is that she was going to wear a red dress and found out Letizia was and so changed.

I think the pairing of the Lovers Knot Tiara and Diana's Collingworth Pearl and Diamond Earrings are a match made in heaven. They really look beautiful and create a balanced effect. Unfortunately, the appearance of the magnificent and beauteous Ruby and Diamond Floral Bandeau Necklace stuck in her cleavage was like fingernails on a chalkboard. The Bandeau is worthy of a sonnet and there it sits, it's beautiful, dainty and feminine rubies and diamonds spent the evening arguing with the prissy pink lace that had it surrounded.

I look forward to seeing it in a perfect setting as Catherine certainly has the long neck and decolletage to provide the perfect canvas for the Ruby and Diamond Floral Bandeau Necklace. All she needed was the right frame and the pink gown wasn't it even if it did have an overly deep Hollywood plunge going on.

I agree , she was not Royal at all and without any oder she was like Marie Christine of Kent and his daughter (minor Royals)
The actuel Royals (not Queen Maxima) are wearing tiara , earrings and bracelet.

I beg to disagree... for a more contemporary look the necklace would look amazing against a high, round necked,column dress in matte grey/anthracite or black.. Like something Sheika Mozah might wear ?

I think pearls are neutral enough to wear with different colored gems. It worked for me. Loved the neckline with necklace as well.

I agree. I thought it looked amazing and I'll always be excited when she wears a new and major piece from the collection.

That is an interesting possibility. I am sure there is communication between royals about what the two Queens are wearing but perhaps this doesn't extend to other royal ladies . I really want to believe, like you, that she will wear this wonderful necklace again with a more fitting gown.

Agreed. And, in my book, there is no such thing as "mismatched" jewelry. The duchess looked amazing and that necklace looked great with the earrings and tiara. I love the way the necklace looked with the low-cut light pink dress. Too bad we didn't get a really good look at the whole outfit.

I agree! I so want either Kate or Harry's wife to wear that pearl/sapphire choker. That is a magnificent piece of jewelry. It is to amazing to stay out of sight for too long.

Diana certainly had some magnificent jewelry and I hope we get to see more of it on Kate now that she and William are attending more high profile events.
