Kate Middleton Receives Diana’s Favorite Earrings
Posted on July 26 2011
Kate Middleton’s fashion sense is often compared to Prince William’s late mother, Diana. They both have an elegant and sophisticated sense of style that is admired and revered. It came as no surprise that Price William offered Kate Middleton his mother’s engagement ring when he proposed, and it comes as no surprise again that his jewelry offerings of his mother’s favorite pieces of jewelry continue.
Princess Diana’s diamond and sapphire engagement ring is one of the most well-known pieces of jewelry around this world and she also loved her matching sapphire and diamond earrings. The earrings look very similar to these diamond and sapphire stud earrings set in white gold. A courtier stated, “Now they’re married, William wanted her to have some of his mother’s favorite pieces.”
Kate Middleton, The Duchess of Cambridge, was first seen wearing the striking earrings when she observed Andy Murray at Wimbledon last month and she was also seen wearing them when she visited Canada and the United States of America.
Though both Diana and Kate will continue to be compared, it is important that the Duchess of Cambridge embrace and establish her own sense of fashion. Kate Middleton may become a fashion icon in her own right and has even put her own twist on these iconic earrings by re-fashioning the once studs into more modern drop earrings.
