In the past few weeks we’ve seen Kate wearing a pair of sapphire and diamond earrings that we have been unable to identify. The earrings are the perfect compliment to her matching diamond and sapphire engagement ring which everyone already knows was once Diana’s.
We also noticed that Diana wore very similar earrings. Could William have given them to Kate as gift? Clearly, the earrings are not identical so we’re thinking that the couple had them reset? Let us know what you think…
Today there is a story in the Sunday Mirror about Kate’s sapphire and diamond earrings. www.mirror.co.uk
The article states that William gave his mother’s earrings to Kate. The earrings that Diana wore were heavy studs but they were remodelled into drop earrings for Kate.
We saw Kate wear them for the first time when she and Wills watched Andy Murray from the Royal Box at Wimbledon last month.
The earrings were among Diana’s most treasured jewels. She wore them at dozens of events in the 1980s and 1990s.
A courtier said: “Now they’re married William wanted her to have some of his mother’s favourite pieces.”
