Princess Diana's 30 most treasured jewellery pieces

Princess Diana's 30 most treasured jewellery pieces

Diana, Princess of Wales may be best known for her humanitarian work and high style, but she also had a hidden talent for restyling jewelry in an imaginative way.

Drawing from an extensive collection – including diamond suites gifted by foreign royals, tiaras on loan from the Queen and heritage pieces belonging to the Spencer family – the late princess was often repurposing her precious treasures.

She famously wore Queen Mary’s Art Deco emerald choker – a wedding gift from the Queen made with emeralds gifted from the Ladies of India in 1911 – as a bandeau for a dance during the tour of Australia in 1985.

A year later she repeated the styling trick, wearing her velvet sapphire choker – this time a wedding present from the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia – as a headband for a dinner at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo.

In the same spirit, Diana often re-designed and modified her jewelry, using diamonds from a watch band to create earrings or turning a ring into a centerpiece for a necklace. One of her signature jewels, the seven-strand pearl necklace with sapphire and diamond pendant, was fashioned from a brooch originally given to her by the Queen Mother.

Continuing in his mother’s tradition, Prince Harry chose to use the diamonds from the pendant to create the Duchess of Sussex’s engagement ring. Today, much of Diana’s jewelry is living a second life in the hands of her daughters-in-law, including her 12-carat sapphire engagement ring which has been passed down to the Duchess of Cambridge.

Princess Diana’s love for jewelry didn’t end with emeralds, sapphires, and grandiose diamond tiaras.

She enjoyed experimenting with costume jewelry and semi-precious stones, which she sourced from London’s Butler & Wilson, and had a vast collection of understated gold accessories, including her personalized “D” charm necklace. From aquamarine suites to pearl chokers.

Royal Sapphire Rings

It is very beautiful. I am glad to have made the purchase.

Royal Sapphire

Stunning ring and an eye catcher! Perfect fit and the Sapphire is beautiful in the sterling silver setting.

Very nice I could do with a size smaller but all rings online are too big for.me. 5 or j/h fitting is my ideal
Size.

I like the ring very much. It is a beauty
