The Duchess Of Cambridge Has Put Her Own Spin On Princess Diana’s Sapphire Drop Earrings

The Duchess of Sussex is far from alone in making stylish adjustments to royal jewellery. While Meghan recently swapped out the band on her engagement ring for a more delicate pavé option, the Duchess of Cambridge has transformed a pair of sapphire and diamond earrings that once belonged to Diana, Princess of Wales. A gift from the Duke of Cambridge shortly before their wedding, the set perfectly matches the late Princess’s – and Kate’s – 12-carat sapphire engagement ring.

Princess Diana frequently wore the double-drop earrings, believed to be part of the suite gifted to her by the Crown Prince Fahd of Saudi Arabia on the occasion of her wedding. The royal notably paired them with a seven-strand pearl choker during a visit to the White House under President Ronald Reagan in 1985, where she famously danced with John Travolta. The Princess also opted to wear the set while posing for the cover of Vogue’s July 1994 issue in honour of her 33rd birthday.

The Duchess of Cambridge, however, has removed the top circular sapphires. Kate was first photographed in the elegant single-drop design in an official portrait at Clarence House on June 3, 2011, taken shortly before her royal tour of North America. She most recently wore the earrings while stepping out earlier this year for the opening of the V&A Dundee, wearing a favourite tartan coat dress by Alexander McQueen.
