Royal-style watchers believe Kate had some of Princess Diana's favorite jewels remodeled.
Earlier this week, Kate Middleton and Prince William had their first royal engagement at Buckingham Palace since the lockdown began, which hosted Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and First Lady Olena Zelenska. Kate wore a cornflower blue midi dress by Emilia Wickstead for the occasion, which completed the look with a set of eye-catching sapphire and diamond jewelry. We have obviously seen her engagement ring, which formerly belonged to Princess Diana, while her earrings, also converted from a pair of Dianas, are also known to royal-style pursuers. But Kate ended the set with a matching sapphire and diamond pendant strung on a fine gold chain on its public debut.
As People reports, there is a good chance that the necklace was originally part of the same jewelry set as Kate's earrings, but in a different shape. In 1981, the Saudi royal family donated a number of sapphire and diamond jewels to Princess Diana to celebrate her wedding to Prince Charles, which was to match her engagement ring (which would later become Kate again). According to People, the complete set included "a huge Burmese sapphire and diamond pendant suspended from a thin diamond chain" as well as "matching earrings, ring, bracelet and watch". Diana wears some of the pieces in the photo below, taken in Brisbane, Australia in 1983.

It seems pretty safe to say that Kate's new necklace is from Diana's wedding present, as the Duchess of Cambridge previously redesigned her late mother-in-law's jewelry (and the pendant goes perfectly with the earrings). Mystery solved, true style!
