Whether it’s her favourite diamond drop earrings or the pieces she has worn lent to her by the Queen, Kate Middleton’s jewellery collection is surely worth a look.
The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate, sure has great taste especially when it comes to jewellery.
We should also mention that some of the jewellery that once belonged to the late Princess, Diana, is also included in her collection. These are all of her favourite gemstones… BAFTAs 2019 red carpet look was the first time Kate was seen wearing a pair of dazzling drop earrings that once belonged to Princess Diana. She has acquired and obtained several pieces from her late mother-in-law’s extraordinary collection since becoming engaged to Prince William in 2010.
These earrings were basically a wedding gift to Princess Diana, part of a suite of jewels given by Crown Prince Fahd of Saudi Arabia. Prince William gave the earrings to Kate after he proposed in 2010, and the Duchess updated the design into a drop style. They’ve become one of Kate’s signature earrings through the years.

It was from a selection of rings from the former Crown jewellers Garrard of Mayfair. “It’s very special to me. As Kate’s very special to me now, it was right to put the two together,” William said on the day of their engagement announcement. “It was my way of making sure my mother didn’t miss out on today and the excitement, and the fact that we’re going to spend the rest of our lives together.” The stunning centre stone is a 12-carat oval Ceylon sapphire, one of Princess Diana’s favourite gemstones, while the 14 solitaire diamonds nestled around it are set in 18-carat white gold.
