Garnets also come in a wide variety of colors. I have a ring with purple garnets that look more like amethysts than the traditional red garnet.

Those don't look like rubies to me...perhaps they are garnets.

Garnets would make sense seeing as how it's Kate's birthstone...perhaps a nice present from William.

Friend of mine is from Poland, she says Amber has significance to Poland. She's not heard about Garnet (wasn't even sure what it was) but she's going to ask her mom to be sure.

Well, the Cambridges are supposed to visit some sort of amber workshop.

Maybe that's what the Government will gift to Kate? Amber?
(I just hope it's something pretty; I'm still annoyed about those bears from Canada).

The closer I look at the red jewels, the more i think they are not a matched set. The earrings and ring have gold in the setting and the pendant doesn't and appears to be a lighter stone.
I have never liked the pearl set. Maybe would work on someone much curvier.

They certainly come across as rubies to me.

Or do they all get together to rummage through the jewels and choose who wears what?
Mirabel - I’ve always wondered the same thing. Is there, perhaps, a photo catalog/book Catherine can leaf through? How request made.

Love the look. What's hilarious is William's "evil eye" at the photographers!

I think there is a catalog. I seem to remember, from many years ago, reading about a catalog of the Queen's jewelry. In fact, I think there is an actual book that was published. It contains not just the Queen's personal jewelry but, what I know as, the Crown Jewels and royal jewels. I don't have the time but I'm sure if interested, it would be easy enough to google this book or something along the lines of "pictures of the Queens jewelry."

I imagine Her Maj is very generous with loaning out her jewels to the younger members of the family. I mean, the Duchess of Cambridge wears the Queen's engagement jewelry from Philip. You can't get much more generous than that.

I would love to know how that works. It would be great if Angela Kelly would write a book sometime describing this.
