    Diana wore as a headband the sapphire/diamond choker on velvet that she had made from the watch on a state visit to Japan, the only time I'm aware of that she did so.

    She had her hair slicked back, as in the 2 photos, shortly post-separation, wasn't it? Accepting an award in NYC. Seemed like she was trying for something new but I'm glad she didn't repeat that particular hairdo. She looked good with it up & back, though -- she would have looked nice that way as she got older too.

    No answers to my question about the lovely flower brooch of the Queen's -- I take that to mean nobody else has seen photos of her wearing it either?

    Rachel, when was that earlier discussion of Diana's sapphires? I can't quite remeber... And just for the record - the parure she received does not include a choker. These were all added later.

    JewelFreak, I searched all my files of the Queen for a photo but didn't found one. I'll ask of TheRoyalForums. Maybe one of their brooch experts has one... The brooch is really nice and because of the santimental value I'd be surprised if she hasn't worn it at least once.

    I meant the sapphires we were talking about a few posts up on the page :)) And yes, you're correct, the sapphires in question contain a necklace and earrings for sure, and perhaps a brooch?

    Ohh, I see. I thought we've discussed them earlier and you were making a reffernce. Sorry.
    Apart from a necklace (with pendant) and earrings, the sapphire suit from the Saudi Arabian Crown Prince includes a braclet, watch and ring. A brooch with huge sapphire and diamons was a present fom The Queen Mother and Princess Diana made it the center of a multi row pearl choker (worn on your photos). Obviously the Princess didn't like the watch and made a pair of earrings that could be worn with or without a second sapphire/diamond pendant (my photo for her pirthday, my 3rd post from today and yours). Since she already had a sapphire ring (her engagement ring), Diana used the sapphire and diamond cluster from the wedding present ring for a choker (my second photo today).

    Here you can see a photo of the wedding present from SA - http://www.dianasjewels.net/Earrings/sapphiresuite.jpg

    And a photo of The late Princess of Wales wearing the necklace, earrings and bracelet from the (dami) parure:

    Oooppss... I was a bit wrong! Here's what Field sais in her book from 1987 -
    That makes the choker from LadyMaria's photo that started the discussion and the one from my first reply the choker in question. The one I thought was made from the ring is obviously another jewel that has nothing to do with the Saudi Arabian wedding present.

    Sincere apologies everyone!!!

    Congrats to Queen Elizabeth on the news that she will be a great-grandmother come December! Peter and Autumn Phillips are expecting their first baby.

    I think becoming a great-grandmother will be worthy of adding something new and sparkly, don't you think? Maybe a new brooch? I say it should have tanzanite in it because she does not have anything in tanzanite, and tanzanite is accepted as the modern birthstone for December, which is when the baby is due.

    It is scary to think that Charles picked Camellia over Diana. The jewerly is so pretty and the colors wow. Camilla needs a new look and I am sorry but I just don't like her. The queen makes her look like a wall flower

    Camilla needs to be behind the camera not in front.

    The Queen Mum would never allowed Charles to marry Camilla.

    Bobby, thanks for finding that info on QE's brooch! I'll try to dig up photos also of her wearing it. It's such a pretty piece -- I like the colors & the design that allows light through the stones.

    Oh sigh, agree with all of you about Camilla's wearing the QM's jewels; I don't think she'd be best pleased at that. I tell myself that it's her privilege to wear them but can't help feeling grumpy about it. If she looked better in them it might be easier to be reconciled.

    Dianab, great pics of Princess Grace! Do you know anything about the beautiful diamond necklace she's wearing with the pink dress (holding a dog) and in the early photo with knockout drop cluster earrings? Wow, is all I can say!

    I don't mind Camilla at all. I could go on further, but it might come across as mean spirited.

    If camilla was younger and had her looks about her it would be more appealing to the eye. She is not royal material and never will be. Im sure she is enjoying the jewels and such. It takes class to wear these items and the Queen puts her to shame along with the other royal family members.

    Dianab, great shots of Princess Grace!

    Bobby- what tiara is Princess Grace wearing in the picture with the enormous peach hoopskirt dress? I don't recognize it it all!

    Prince Nikolas, Tatiana, and Princess Madeline at an London event. Tatiana is not wearing anything really super (earrings), but check out the bracelet of Madeline...not sure if it is real or not but I like how it matches the belt on her dress.
