She wore the yellow and white diamond version of these earrings to an event at Harewood House, England in September last year. I wonder if she owns them and if they are convertable as the one's at the Oscars were all white diamonds.

The waterfall earrings are stunning, loved the close up. Wonder how they would look with her tiara(s)?

The first time it came to my mind that this ring was the first to give the "theme" drop of water.
It is a very lovely ring, but the photograph is about 3x normal size.

Such a difference to the offical photo of the engagement ring:

I think the "bigger" version is way too much.Even though I do like the ring,I personally would not wear it.

Maybe it's the angle, or me, but are those two different rings? The shank looks less bulky and the side stones different on the recent view. This version looks much nicer and that's a gorgeous pear-shaped diamond. Thanks for reposting that photo for comparison, CP!

I guess they "resized" the ring for the engagement photo.
We have never seen Charlene wearing this "rock" again.

I thought PC did have two rings. One for everyday LOL and one for events.One was supposed to be 3 carats and the other 13 carats. The large ring is a power statement. PG's ring was about 10 carats also.

Why do you think that? Do you know more than the rest of us?

Neither of those diamonds are 3 carats, nor are they 13 carats. Six or seven, maybe. The stone seems to be exquisitely cut, not too shallow or too deep. To know the exact weight, it would have to be weighed. Most diamonds these days are calibrated, so only their width across the top in MM is counted. There can be quite a variance in weight in a selection of 10MM diamonds.

I seriously doubt she had two engagement rings. Do you have a source???

I thought the official photo with the engagement ring was photoshopped? It sort of looks like it, and they got the scale wrong. Apparently it was an "urgent" purchase - the jeweler Repossi had to be called back from vacation - so I assumed it just wasn't ready in time for the official engagement photo.

I found a beautiful side with the earrings she wore at the oscars and similar styles from former occasions.
And I have to say I love the oscar earrings (only white diamonds - just like her engagement ring) the most.

Interesting! I didn't see what looks like yellow diamonds in the other photos. This is such a beautiful mix of stones; thanks for posting this link.

They are indeed a lovely pair of chandeliers. Interesting to see how they have been designed to have interchangeable stones, allowing Charlene to use them a lot more. Can't wait to see her use them with emeralds and sapphires as well.

Do you really think these earrings have interchangeable stones?
I thought the earrings were all individual ones?
