Duchess of Cambridge: BRF jewels we would like to see her use
 
Now that Catherine has started to get access to some of HMs jewels (Papyrus tiara, Nizam of Hyderabad necklace) I thought it would be good to have one place where we could discuss jewels belonging to the BRF that we would like to see Catherine use.

My own personal wish list:

> Greville ruby necklace
> Greville chandelier earrings
> Godman emerald demi-parure
> South African diamond necklace and bracelet
> Delhi Durbar emerald choker

Catherine has a future tiara an jewellery thread.

Empress Marie Federwhatever's Sapphire Bandeau tiara that Margaret wore a couple of times in the 1950s or 1960s.

The Strathmore Rose Tiara

The Queen Anne and Queen Caroline Pearl Necklaces

The Greville Ruby Necklace
HM South African Diamonds (her Best Diamonds)
The Marie Feodorovna sapphire tiara
The Saudi Sapphires presented to the Princess of Wales on her wedding in 1981 (and that is the only set of Diana's jewellery I want to see Catherine wear in the near future).

I suspect you will need to wait till the coronation of King William and Queen Catherine to see that.

The Oriental Circlet Tiara
The Strathmore Rose Tiara

Those are my two that I would like to see her in now. I know that some of the others are not going to grace her head for a while.

She will need to be Queen before she gets to wear the Oriental Circlet.

It would be nice to see Catherine wear a choker, quite like Camilla does. I know they are not fashionable at the moment, but she could kick off a trend.

Marty91charmed 09-30-2014 02:13 PM

a tiara definitely! Possible with and updo thanks :-)

It is just a question of time. Each minute brings the Duchess of Cambridge closer to the moment that she will be Queen and have access to the bulk of the royal jewels. All Catherine needs to do is to wait.

:previous: For the jewels that only Queen's and Queen Consorts wear, yes, Catherine will have to wait for that. She do have access to some major pieces though. It's all down to her willing to wear them and she have already played around with a few jewels.

I'm wondering if she and William will attend the Singapore State Visit next month. If so, she'll be wearing a tiara. The next tiara event after that is the Royal Reception for the Diplomatic Corps at Buckingham Palace. She and William attended last year.

Access to what additional major pieces?

Access to royal jewels is within the Queen's gift - not on demand. She already has 1, poss 2 tiaras and a major necklace; and chandelier earrings (think that's the correct term) plus the engagement ring.

We have no info at all on access to more of Diana's personal jewellery and can't assume that she will get any of it.

I dont think its about her willingness to wear major pieces - we dont know if she has any over and above that whcih we have seen already.

:previous: Lets not forget that beautiful diamond bracelet that her father-in-law gave her too. So far, I think that's my favorite piece that she wears.

that's her's - not from the royal vaults. I like it as well. I'm first in line she gets bored with it - probably after she gets her hands on Queen Victoria's bracelet

I have a great pic of it from "The Queen's Diamonds" by Hugh Roberts.

How about a collar - Queen Mary's "Love TRophy Collar"

I do think she have access to her mother-in-laws jewels that was left to William & Harry. Although, I wasn't talking about those jewels. I was stating that Catherine have access to some jewels the Queen has loaned her. I think the Queen is always willing to loan out some jewels to Catherine, Camilla and Sophie, if they are willing to ask and seek.

I wonder though does she even known what all jewels possessed by the Queen? There are known pieces of course but I can imagine there are a number that are not commonly seen.

LaRae

Given that she is a minimalist when it comes to jewelry, she probably doesn't know which of the Queen's jewels she is able to borrow.

That is one of the differences between me and her: that would have been one of my first questions-I would have been humble, of course.
