Did Kate Middleton Redesign a Pair of Princess Diana's Favorite Earrings?
From Harper's BAZAAR
Royal lovers are convinced that Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has reused a pair of beloved earrings that previously belonged to Diana, Princess of Wales.
Earlier this week, Duchess Kate sat down with her husband, Prince William, for their first official public meeting at Buckingham Palace since the coronavirus pandemic began. For the engagement, the Duchess wore a blue knitted dress by Emilia Wickstead with a belt, her characteristic sapphire teardrop earrings, her sapphire engagement ring and a matching necklace. The latter piece of jewelry seemed to favor a popular pair of vintage sapphire earrings that Princess Diana often wore to her own royal engagements.
The stunning, never-before-seen piece features a diamond-studded sapphire suspended from a smaller, similar pendant and suspended from a thin gold chain. Per People, the new piece was likely remodeled from the same collection of sapphires that once belonged to Diana, although this is yet to be confirmed. It's also the same set of jewels that Kate's earrings were reused from.

The collection dates back to 1981, when Diana received a set of sapphire and diamond jewelery from the Saudi royal family as a wedding gift after her marriage to Prince Charles. The pieces were originally designed to match her sapphire engagement ring, which was eventually passed on to Kate.
Sapphires were famous for Diana's favorite jewels as she often wore azure blue jewelry for her royal appearances. Like Kate, Diana has often upcycled her diamonds and stones, recreating new designs from pieces she already owned.
