Given the fact that so many of the items were gifts to The Princess of Wales from foreign heads of state & governments it would be a dangerous task to start selling things off. Serious offence could be taken.
Put it this way - as an Australian I would be very displeased if Her Majesty was to suddenly sell off the Wattle Brooch that was given to her on her tour here in the 1950's. Same goes with the Innaminka Opal.

Not only do I think the idea of selling her jewels ridiculous, I think yuor point is very valid. She received a fair amount of jewellery in her role as then consort to the Prince of Wales, and those items cannot be sold. They will need to remain with the family, or ideally become a part of the Royal Collection.

Placing her estate in the Royal Collection is the best solution in my opinion. That would guarantee none of the items would be sold or lost in future generations.

I think those jewels are already placed in the collection.

I don't think there is any need for her estate to be placed in the Royal Collection, just the specific pieces of jewellery that she had received as then consort to the PoW.

Jewels that were privately owned should be free to be distributed between William and Harry, as they might agree.

The bottom line is that the jewellery belongs to William and Harry and how they decide to dispose of it is entirely their choice. The jewels that were gifted to Diana remained hers to dispose of how she chose. She chose to leave them to her sons for their future wives.

Collingwood Pearl drop earrings (already used)
Pearl and diamond bracelet (already used)
Crescent shaped diamond earrings with pearl drop (used by Catherine at BAFTA 2019)
Ruby earrings with pearl drop (Pearl drop rumoured to be used by Catherine for BAFTA 2019)

MEGHAN
Emerald and diamond earrings and matching bracelet
Pearl and diamond pendant earrings from Qatar - though these may now be with the Royal Collection
Omani sapphire suite - though these may now be with the Royal Collection
Aquamarines: Ring, bracelet with pearls, drop earrings
Gold bracelet (already used in Australia)
Butterfly earrings (already used in Australia)
Gold Cartier Tank watch

The emerald and diamond earrings and Art Deco bracelet are high on my list to see again - I am hoping that Meghan has been gifted them as we already know Kate has a modern emerald set.


Another piece that would be interesting to see is the Prince of Wales diamond necklace - (often used with an emerald pendant attached) I hope Kate gets this piece when she is likely to be the next Princess of Wales

As the POW Kate will have access to scads of jewelry along with whatever William got for his share of Diana's jewelry...and some of that is loose stones so we may see something later and not even know (unless they tell us) they were from Diana's collection.

No one knows of course and we may never see either of them wear it. it could be saved for one of their children (or their spouse)..it could be taken apart and re-set.

I think if anyone ends up with it, it will be Kate. It is more her style and stone color.

I suspect Kate will get that since she has the sapphire earrings and ring. I long to see that choker again. It is stunning!

I have to laugh when people assume a stone is someone's stone or something will go to them because it's the same stone as her engagement ring. If that's the case, Princess Anne owns sapphire more than anyone in BRF.

Diana's jewels will show up when they show up. Although, with the limited amount of formal events these days, it could take awhile.

It seems to me that Harry got very little of Diana's jewellery. Apart from one ring, one unspectacular bracelet and some tiny butterfly earrings and a couple of stones in her engagement ring what else has appeared? And Kate, as well as Meghan, is minimalist in her everyday jewellery but she has worn various larger pieces from Diana's collection over the years, including of course the engagement ring. So it seems Harry got what was left over.

We don't know what Harry received. He only got married in May last year. Diana's jewels were left to both William and Harry so they would have been shared equally. Meghan has very minimalist jewelry tastes in her everyday life and is developing her own jewel collection. It will take her a while before she starts wearing the significant jewels from Diana..just as it took a while for Catherine to wear them.

Right we have no way of knowing what Harry got ..we don't know what kind of agreement he and William worked out....we won't know until we see things being worn. There's no reason though to think Harry only got leftovers.

There are so few events for them to wear the big pieces...it may be years before we see most of them.

But we don't know how the jewels were divided and who divided them. If it was some Royal official in conjunction with the teenage Princes soon after Diana's death how do we know what his/her thought processes were?

Was it that William's wife would be Prss of Wales and then Queen so William should by rights get the lion's share of what was left after the majority of the 'official' jewellery went back to the Royal Vaults, and the then quite naive teenage Princes agreed?

We don't know that the brothers were grown men when this jewellery was divided. If they were, all well and good. If it was divided unequally then that leaves the wife of a son of the Prince of Wales reliant on loans for many major occasions from her grandmother in law/mother in law and then sister in law for the rest of her life as a Royal.

We already know Meghan has had to borrow earrings from a jeweller for a couple of appearances. If there was a king's ransom of jewels at Harry's disposal then surely logically she would have worn a pair from the collection.

God knows Diana didn't receive that much private jewellery from Charles after the marriage went pear-shaped and things like the Saudi parures may well have gone back to the vaults.

I don't recall anyone confirming Meghan has borrowed earrings from a jeweler. That was speculated by the media but there's no reason to think that is any more accurate than the idea she borrowed them from Camilla or another friend.

She may not want to wear big pieces very often..she doesn't wear much jewelry at all. So I don't know that she has 'had to' borrow anything.

Well for instance, it has been reported that engagement ring was Harry's, and He gave it to William after they decided that the first to marry would get it.

I agree Pranter. Perhaps we should keep in mind that Meghan has yet to attend a tiara/gala event in the UK, so IMO it is too early to speculate as to what pieces from Diana's jewelry will be available for each of the Wales' brothers wives to wear.
