Meghan Markle mixes Canadian and Australian jewelry on Commonwealth outing
Meghan Markle's dedication to the Commonwealth extends to her accessories! The royal bride-to-be turned to her beloved Canadian brand Maison Birks for earrings and Australia's Natalie Marie for rings as she stepped out at the Commonwealth Youth Forum on day three of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) on Wednesday (April 18). Meghan paired the delicate pieces with a fashion-forward striped nautical dress by Aquazurra, a black Camilla and Marc blazer draped over her shoulders, Tamara Mellon's Paramour multi-strap pumps and an Oroton cross-body bag.

I have a question that I hope one of the forum members can help me with per Meghan's jewelry.

WK was given Diana's engagement ring. My gut is telling me that MM might be given Diana's gold Cartier tank wrist watch. Just speculation, but regardless--what happens to any of Diana's jewelry that PH gives MM in the event of a divorce?

Would she have to give it back, or would she get to keep it? I can't imagine any of Diana's jewelry leaving the royal family fold, but I'm interested to see what other members think.


Title: Re: Meghan's Jewellery Box III
Post by: HRHOlya on May 19, 2018, 09:29:39 pm
I really don't know and the question is frequently raised with Kate too, who got big blue and by now has worn even more of Diana's jewellery, like a pearl bracelet and some such.
The consensus is though, that it would have to go back (to Will & Harry). I do think so. Possibly that there's a contract stipulating jewellery use of wives (between husbands & wives, namely K&M having to sign an agreement that e.g. they can't sell anything and jewellery goes back to original owners, i.e. W&H, or onto children, for now only G&C&L).

Meghan might be allowed to keep her engagement ring in the event of a divorce, as it features two modestly sized round cut diamonds, but big blue is too important and would have to go back.

I don't think that Murkles will get the tank, maybe she will, but she has her own and Diana's model is still available for purchase. And I think Diana had at least two tank francaise watches by Cartier, everyone speaks of *the* watch, but she had imo at least two - one in gold with a leather strap and one all gold, face & strap. She had also more watches than those (two), many unidentified. There's another all gold with a  round face which Charles gave her early on, at marriage or her brithday, she wore that one right until the divorce. Murkles is certainly banking on Cartier though, wearing Cartier bracelets and earrings today.

I don't think she should be allowed near Diana's watches, she'd engave them "from Di to MM" or maybe "MS" for Sussex..
I still can't get over the cheesy, childish, gawdawful engaving she did on her own Cartier watch as "from MM to MM", I mean wtf! :sly:


Title: Re: Meghan's Jewellery Box III
Post by: Albany on May 19, 2018, 09:33:18 pm
^Thank you for the answer.

And I agree about the cheesy engraving on MM's tank watch. The story she gave about "having it engraved so she could give it to her daughter" was a bit cringe worthy. Why would you share that?


Title: Re: Meghan's Jewellery Box III
Post by: HRHOlya on May 19, 2018, 09:35:56 pm
^ That was also cringe. But also, as she clearly intended the piece for posterity, why not come up with sth better? I get she wanted to celebrate the Suits pick up, but why not then engrave it e.g. "2012 MM" or whatever else the year was. That ties it to the event, the success and has her initials she so loves. Makes for a better engraving and story and is more logical than "from MM to MM". Jeez.

Did Diana ever wear that ring more than once?

I only remember reading about her wearing it on that one occasion, and never saw any other photos of her wearing it. I would consider it a very minor piece in Diana's collection. I would say 99% of the people who saw that ring on MM's finger had no idea it had any connection to Diana without the press calling it out as one of Diana's pieces.

Unlike Big Blue, it wasn't a signature of Diana's, which says a lot.

Title: Re: Meghan's Jewellery Box III
Post by: HRHOlya on May 20, 2018, 01:38:13 pm
^^ Diana commisssioned it at Asprey's and wore it only once (publicly), it was brand new. Only she already also owned it, opposite to the Swan Lake suite, which she commissioned as well and also gave instructions for the design (same with the ring, but when you commission sth it's obvious you have final say over design), but as the earrings weren't finished yet she hadn't even paid for it all yet which is why the jeweller's owned it until they auctioned it off.

I agree with your other points. The bigger question really is what else will go to whom and who'll wear it. Stuff like the Cartier watch(es) can easily be repurchased new. The big bucks are on the Saudi suite (what's left of it, re-designed and otherwise) and the big choker (I think the centrepiece, originally a brooch, came from Liz the q mum and was a wedding gift).
I think the chocker will stay with Will though, it's too big in "history", significance and value and will ultimately always go to the main heir. Is my speculation in any case.


Title: Re: Meghan's Jewellery Box III
Post by: Alexandrine on May 20, 2018, 01:46:01 pm
^ i think the chocker may go to Harry. Unless I remember wrong. Does it has royal provenance? I think Harry will all the saudi and non royal things.


Title: Re: Meghan's Jewellery Box III
Post by: HRHOlya on May 20, 2018, 02:11:22 pm
^ Not sure about provenance.
What was at the forefront of my thoughts, but I haven't written and will now, are death duties. Harry got a tidy sum from Diana, he also inherited from Liz the q mum (I don't think we know how much), is due to inherit from Phil, Liz and Chuck plus Charles's ongoing funding until he dies. So Harry will pocket a considerable fortune. Down the line that fortune might dwindle. Liz the q mum left also to nieces newphews and cousins to inherit but they had to sell the inheritance (apartments in Mayfair and similar) to fund the death tax (inheritance tax) and were left with the rest as inheitance then (meaning even royals now their descendants might not be so rich, eg the Kents too who couldn't afford KP and their country home and sold it once they had to pay full rent on KP). That's also why Liz qm bequeathed much to Liz2, who paid no tax and then handed the stuff over to whoever was originally intended (e.g. Charles).

Point is, depending on how Harry will invest etc etc his descendants (if there are any) might not have all that much left inherited, they won't be able to pay the inevtiable tax on the inheritance (choker, Saudi suite etc) and the stuff will go to auction.

That whole kerfuffle, the financial burden but also the possibility that the stuff gets lost (out of the family) is imo too big to risk. That's ultimately what it boils down to.

They use Diana and Diana's positive image still influences them, so they better take care of even the most inconsiquential piece of jewellery.

^ that is what happened with Margaret things when she died


Title: Re: Meghan's Jewellery Box III
Post by: HRHOlya on May 20, 2018, 09:53:55 pm
^ Yeah and Margaret and her kids are fairly up the line still, quite close and the loss happened very quickly, within 1 or 2 generations. Same could easily happen to Harry esp if Meghan spends as she has so far, Ralph & Russo and Cartier don't come cheap.


Title: Re: Meghan's Jewellery Box III
Post by: HRHOlya on May 21, 2018, 01:09:25 pm
On the question of who owns Diana's jewellery now and will in the future:

"Both rings (sapph & diamond cluster engagement ring & the aquamarine ring) were part of Diana’s small personal jewel collection — there were also aquamarine drop earrings and a charm bracelet bought by Prince Charles. Not much really, for the mother of a future King, and nowhere near the amount of jewellery the Prince has since lavished on the Duchess of Cornwall.

All the other major pieces Diana had were returned to the Royal Collection after she died, but Harry and William inherited her privately owned trinkets."

Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5751535/RICHARD-KAY-seat-royal-wedding-REALLY-Diana.html

What occurred to me and I forgot to write, is that jewellery and all other things royals are gifted are separated into two parts: private/ personal and official/ government. Gifts have to be stated to be personally given so that a royal can keep it. Liz has received many diamonds etc in jewellery but can't keep all as they belong to the crown.

The question that's unclear is: what belonged to Diana personally? The Saudi suite (Asprey's made) as example is likely owned by the crown. The choker might be privately owned as I think it was originally a brooch given to Di by Liz qm.

I've read a number of times that Di's personal jewellery collection was "small". So there's that.

Camz has many many more jewels, which are, crucially, privately owend by her. Charles gave her loads, amongst others the Greville stuff he inherited from Liz qm, things he bought that once belonged to her family etc etc. Camz personal jewellery collection is said to be much greater than Diana's was.


Title: Re: Meghan's Jewellery Box III
Post by: Alexandrine on May 21, 2018, 01:11:43 pm
I think the Greville stuff is owned bu the Queen given to Charles. Not owned by her.

Post by: CarryingOn on May 21, 2018, 02:14:55 pm
So basically, there’s no need to worry about who’s getting what because there’s nothing much to get.

I’m not saying that to be rude to you two just expressing the overall sentiment I’m getting from it all.

Well, Diana did say that she thought the wife got the real stuff while the mistress got fake.


Title: Re: Meghan's Jewellery Box III
Post by: HRHOlya on May 21, 2018, 05:27:22 pm
^ That didn't even come off as rude, don't worry :)

Yeah, it seems there isn't really much to go around. Certainly nothing more "significant" (diamonds, sapphires, suites and parures and all that).
We see Diana and all the jewellery, but what everyone, incl me, forgets, is that much was in fact lent by Liz, then a tonne of costume jewellery, then much of it were in fact state etc gifts and therefore owned by the crown (with Diana as primary "custodian" rather than "owner", so she couldn't pass any of those things on and after her death the stuff went to the rightful owner -back-, i.e. the crown and was put in the vaults) and then some of the things owned by her. The aquamarine ring was hers, but brand new. She had a Cartier trinity ring, a signet ring with the Wales feathers (and therefore it only makes sense for that to go eventually to Will/ Kate), Cartier watch(es), some bracelets (diamond & sapphire, ownership unclear), some of her pearl chokers (not too valuable actually) and the biggest nugget really is the sapphire choker. That one I'm sure she owned outright.
But! This is a fresh and good article (by The Sun!), and it speculates that the brooch (as it was originally and then turnt into the choker) has been dismantled and the two small diamonds in M's ring come from this choker (the official statement was the two diamonds came from one of her brooches, and the choker was initially a brooch). If that is true, then we won't see the choker anymore, at least not as it was on Diana.

A RARE GEM Princess Diana’s jewellery – who inherited it and what happened to her engagement ring and sapphire choker?

Both Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle now wear engagement rings which are straight out of Princess Diana's own jewellery box

PRINCESS Diana left her impressive jewellery collection to her sons' future wives, the Duchess of Cambridge and now Meghan Markle.

But it wasn't as simple as that - with some pieces going back into the Queen's estate, and others being sold at auction. Here's what happened to Diana's most iconic pieces...

After her death Diana's sons, Princes William and Harry, were left three quarters of her £21 million estate - with the other quarter going to her 17 godchildren.

In a special "letter of wishes", Diana explained that she was leaving her jewellery to her sons' future wives.

The letter reads: "I would like you to allocate all my jewellery to the share to be held by my sons, so that their wives may, in due course, have it or use it.

"I leave the exact division of the jewellery to your discretion."

But some of her gems were on loan from the royal collection, while others were not included in her estate.


[...]

Sapphire Brooch

https://www.thesun.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/nintchdbpict000369435467.jpg?w=960

Diana's sapphire brooch was a wedding gift from the Queen Mother.

Originally, she wore it as a brooch - but soon opted to put her own spin on it, and fashioned it into a many stringed pearl necklace.

Diana continued to wear the necklace even after her divorce - and it was passed onto her sons after her death.

Harry has now used the gem to make a custom engagement ring for his beau Meghan, according to reports.


The actress' ring includes a stone from Botswana, where she and Harry recently holidayed.

[...]

Saudi Suite

https://www.thesun.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/nintchdbpict000369459303.jpg?w=960

One thing's for sure, this princess was never short of sapphires.

Diana was gifted this jewellery collection, known as The Saudi Suite, as a wedding present from Crown Prince Fahd.

It included a watch, earrings, a bracelet, ring and diamond necklace.

William gave the earrings to Kate shortly after their engagement. She put her own spin on them, and wears them in a drop style.

[...]

https://www.thesun.co.uk/fabulous/5010025/princess-dianas-jewellery-inherited-engagement-ring-sapphire-choker/

<< This is a big mistake in the article, Diana had several sapphire & diamond cluster earrings, one of the pairs picture here as part of the Saudi Suite. By all accounts, Kate's pair was not any of Diana's and it's actually said to have been commissioned by the Middletons after the engagement, so is brand new. Besides, a blind person can see that the Saudi Suite (made by Asprey's) earrings are definitely not the same as Kate's. By all accounts, the Saudi Suite may have gone into the vaults as property of the Crown.
Besides, by the time Will married, neither he nor H had yet come into their full inheritance, so they weren't (in theory) quite able to split the jewels up.

Also mentioned the diamond and emerald choker, acc to the article a "favourite" of Diana's, which also isn't true as she didn't like emeralds all that much. Regardless, that was property of Liz (or the crown?) and went back into the vaults after either the divorce or her death.

Also mentioned the two tiaras she wore in her lifetime, but we all know whose and where those are.

It is hard in any case for us to determine what was owned by her, what by the crown (even though she was the first and direct recipient of the gifts) and what was borrowed from Liz (for the duration of the marriage and her life, some things went back after the divorce and some after she died).

Kate wore "Diana's diamond and pear earrings", but those were in fact always Liz's...

^ the sapphires earrings are probably diana http://www.dianasjewels.net/earringscatherine.htm

Check this page nearly at the bottom.

Btw very good site for both Kate and Diana jewels. The owner really knows a lot

Also watching photos of the sapphire chocker the diamonds dont seem like those in Meghan ring.


Title: Re: Meghan's Jewellery Box III
Post by: HRHOlya on May 21, 2018, 07:27:10 pm
^ There is a possibility, Diana had several pairs. What makes me always think they never were Diana's is because Diana's look like cabochons to me and Kate's oval cut. Kate's sapphires also look smaller, bluer and a touch rounder, but then that can vary depending on pic. Then I read the claim the Midds had them commissioned and it seemed logical because to me the sapphires don't look like any of Diana's earrings' sapphires. The major problem is though that pics of Diana are never quite as sharp as pics are nowadays, so the finer details (and even exact hue of jewels) is at times hard to determine.
I know that site! I love to scroll through the pics of the jewels, haven't been there in ages though :)

There was speculation which of Diana's brooches the diamonds could have come from and no one suspected the choker. It's very possible, but I feel like a shame that the choker has been dismantled :sob:


Title: Re: Meghan's Jewellery Box III
Post by: buflesse on May 21, 2018, 07:58:25 pm
I think Diana’s choker would be considered too fussy and dated by Meghan and Kate, but it is a shame if it’s been dismantled. I bet Camz and eventually Kate can’t wait to get their grubby hands on Liz’s jewels.

^^ Looking at Diana's jewellery a little because of this thread had me also be like "a shame it all is so dated, even the chokers!" but that choker would be smashing even today. But even her other pearl chokers could work... :think:

FYI: I’m told Meghan’s earrings are a gift from the Queen


From other tweets some reporters don't believe it's from Birks  :dontknow:

Yes, Diana left quite a few pieces of personal jewellery. Some of it was reserved for Harry's wife, though I think Kate has worn her earrings at times and obviously got Big Blue.

Poor old Diana seemed to get smaller, more trinket-like jewellery from Charles after 1985, very different to how Camilla has been loaded up with sparklers. She did have some pearl and sapphire and diamond necklets, given after the birth of the boys, and the aquamarine cocktail ring and Big Blue, but not much else that I could remember. Maybe some of the necklets have been broken up and the stones used for something else.

I love the Birks sapph & diam earrings, but way overpriced.

[NEW Rosée du Matin Cushion Cut Sapphire and Double Diamond Halo Drop Earrings by BIRKS = now: $11,000.00; original price: $22,000.00 and we don't know at what price she bought them, but I assume she had a heavy discount or it's perhaps a freebie

Doesn't she wear any watches anymore? Whatever happened to the Cartier tank she bought for herself with the ingenious poetic inscription "To M From M"? Same model and al as Diana's. Probably claiming it as "lost" and hoping to get Diana's piece.

The mystery of Meghan’s earrings... all KP will say is that they’re “borrowed”. From whom, they will not say. Most likely the Queen. Quite frustrating when earlier in the day they’re happy to say jewellery that has been given both by her & Prince Charles...

after seeing a close up of megans aqua ring I can say with certainty that it is not, not, not Diana's aquamarine ring. Diana's ring was bigger, emerald cut,  and deeper in color, and had no side stones. megans aqua is more cushion cut, lighter blue in color and has tiny little diamond accents on each side. I will try to find photos of both and post them, but its totally a different ring.  :bouncy:

I see now that diana did have side accents on her ring but it still looks like different size color and cut to me. In fact megans ring looks more like a blue topaz.


It would be heartbreaking to see megan wearing dianas jewelry, and she certainly has not earned them.

Post by: Cali San D on October 25, 2018, 05:11:46 pm
^It looks the same color, but definitely a different size. If Harry gave it to Meg then she must have had a jeweler adjust the shape from rectangular to square, but why do that?  :dontknow:






Title: Re: Meghan's Jewellery Box III
Post by: HRHOlya on October 27, 2018, 07:27:36 pm
It's the same auqa ring. Cut (emerald) and side stones and all.
The difference in colour is because photography isn't all that realiable, esp with the change of technology over the years.
In terms of size, I find the Camb tiara looked bigger on Di than K, and the butterfly earrings look bigger on M than they did on Di... But hairstyle, body size etc plays also a role and we have no reliable way to compare the 3 in terms of that, as one of them isn't here anymore and would now have a different body & hairstyle than 20-40 years ago anyway.

Bizarre that KP won't tell who lent M those earrings indeed, esp as they've been earlier just too happy to share. Either share or don't at all.


Title: Re: Meghan's Jewellery Box III
Post by: Little light on October 27, 2018, 09:12:43 pm
I disagree. To me, Diana's ring was an oblong shape whereas MM's ring looks like it is shorter and more of a square shaped ring. The colour looks darker when PD wore it, but this could be a trick of the light.


Title: Re: Meghan's Jewellery Box III
Post by: Ariel on October 28, 2018, 07:27:31 am
I'm not an expert on jewels but the ring on Megan's hand looks like colored glass. Real precious stones get the light through and reflected in a sparkle not staying on the stone like in colored glass. You can see on Diana's hand how you can see even the inner side of the finger and the light goes through. Apart from that - there's difference in size, color and sizing, it seems. Not a good forgery job, me thinks.

Diana left her jewellery to be divided between her sons' wives. She did have some costume jewellery but that is probably long gone. She didn't have that much but what she did have included a Cartier watch, sapphires and emeralds in different settings and diamond and gold jewellery.

It's quite obvious that William has given some of his mother's jewels to Kate and it's equally obvious that Harry has done the same with Meghan. We saw that she wore a pair of gold and diamond earrings of Diana's on tour only a few days ago. Meghan wore Diana's aquamarine ring on her finger on her wedding day (in the evening.)

 Why would Meghan be wearing a glass ring when she's been gifted jewellery from Harry which was his mother's (as well as gifts from the Queen and the Prince of Wales.) No female in the BRF wears glass. They have more than enough inherited jewellery at their disposal.


Title: Re: Meghan's Jewellery Box III
Post by: Ariel on October 28, 2018, 12:15:01 pm
Good question, why Megan has been wearing a knockoff of the aquamarine ring, why a knockoff and different shapes of the engagement ring, why no wedding and engagement rings on her fingers (more ad space, I guess) during the trip. Is this all a sham - the marriage, the baby, the whatever else.

I find it very hard to believe that Diana will leave her jewelry to the future daughter in laws. I mean - to the sons, yes, but to the daughter in laws. I don't think so. Also - it makes sense that these jewels are loaned and not gifted. Even Kate's engagement ring. She's with the family for 7 years now, officially, and possibly she can "keep it" so that she "gifts it to Char". But Megan - she's clearly in it for herself. Even Harry is not respected. If he was - the wouldn't be so shameless display of ever changing baby bump which brings a lot of speculation among people and brings H's name in the mud, BRF's alngside. No wonder Will doesn't want to have a common household with That woman.

Post by: HRHOlya on October 28, 2018, 12:22:08 pm
^ She did leave her jewellery to her sons, who were supposed to give them to their wives for their use. Don't think ownership has changed (i.e. W&H own the stuff), but the jewels were def intended by Di to be worn by her sons' wives.

Both her sons are dolts and made questionable choices, not like Di would know this and even now her sons (esp freshly in lurve Haz) think they've done well.


Title: Re: Meghan's Jewellery Box III
Post by: Rosella on October 28, 2018, 12:30:30 pm
Diana's will stipulated that her jewellery be divided between her son's for the use of their wives. It's there in the will, and the stipulations have been put online for years.

Meghan's engagement and wedding rings are probably being left off because of swollen fingers. I don't think that speculating that the engagement, wedding etc is fake is helpful when both were celebrated in the media, and the Archbishop of Canterbury, Head of the Anglican Church, conducted the ceremony in front of the BRF and hundreds of guests.

 I think believing that this is a fake marriage is a desperate attempt by Tumblr people to keep themselves relevant when it has became blindingly obvious that everything that they predicted (no engagement, no wedding) since last November has turned out to be false and just plain wrong.

Perhaps Kate Kent lent them? She's a very kind, almost saintly person by all accounts and perhaps the earrings were an on loan 'gift' to Meghan on her wedding. Some of Marina's grander jewellery might be surplus to requirements now Kate Kent is well over eighty and doesn't wear much jewellery anyway, and her children don't attend many big events.

I follow Cepe Smith quite a bit, enjoy her Twitter page.

Meggles has not worn any of Diana's jewelry.  That is easily seen in side-by-side photos of the pieces.  She just wants us to think she has them.
