Did Grand Duchess Anastasia, Queen Alexandrine of Denmark's mother, originally own the Sapphire Tiara?

Beautiful. Is it still in the posession of the Greek RF? I can't remember seeing it before.

I much prefer to the large flashy style of Sarah and Diana's. I usually love blue sapphires, but was never a fan of Diana/Kate's ring.

The sapphire and diamond necklace went up for auction at Sotheby's Geneva on May 11, 2010.

Eugenie's engagement ring looks like her mothers imo.
I've never been a fan of rubies so neither is a personal fav of mine, but I love the sentiment behind the choice.

I agree, Diana's engagement ring is very bulky and unattractive and years later Diana herself said that she chose it when she was very young and that she would have gone for something completely different if she had had the choice again. I'm surprised Kate accepted it to be honest.
