^ I'm in the same bracket age wise and also love pearls! I used to associate strands of pearls with the 50s as teenager, but for a long while I don't think of them anymore as 50s style and have always loved pearl earrings and pearls in other jewellery funnily. I too love Mikimoto! I'm no snob when it comes to pearls and don't care whether they are cultured or "real", it is too hard for real ones to come across anyway, so think cultured are the perfect solution. Cultured form in the same manner as "real" ones anyway, so who cares  dontknow And I know the necklace you are talking about and would love to get my mitts on one of those!

Oh and animal cruelty.. Have not read anyone go up in arms over pearls, but I fully believe it. Everything nowadays is animal cruelty, cruelty in general, racist, sth-phobic etc etc Can't hear it anymore!  sly

Although I am older, I have always loved pearls myself. When I turned 18, grandparents gave me a pearl necklace. Essentially it are several strands of thin platinum with pearls of different sizes scattered randomly on the strands. The pearls are both grey and white.
I wear it very often as it is both professional but also playful because of the randomness of the pearls.

To get the idea:

I'm in my 30's and I'm wearing pink pearl earrings at work today.

Back on topic....I think it's also telling that, besides Big Blue Precious, we don't ever see her wearing any of Di's jewels. An argument can be made that times are tough for all Brits so the RF is cutting back on big ticket items like jewelry but (in theory) there shouldn't be anything stopping her from wearing Di's.

Says a lot that neither Will nor Harry will let her touch them.

Glad to see I'm not the only who loves pearls at a young age. I had a faux pearl necklace when I was a little girl. I just thought it was so gorgeous and I felt glamorous and elegant wearing them tehe I have loved pearls ever since. I think I always knew I was going to grow up and get a real one. Though, of course, I grew up and realized that there are stages to this and I'm still at the 'save! save! save!' stage of life, not the 'buy pearls and be fabulous' stage LOL

@HRHOlya Yes!! It's just gorgeous!

That necklace sounds gorgeous Countess! Fave grandparents for life :the:

And I agree with everyone else, I don't think we'll see her wearing any of Diana's jewels.

^ Those are not Diana's. I have read several times that the Medds had them made right after Waity got the ring of doom. They don't look like any of Diana's either. At best they could be the smaller part of the set were a cluster was on top and bottom, but again I don't think they'd dismantle anything and I fully believe the Medds had them custom made.

I agree. I read that they aren' t Diana' s earrings too and actually they look a little different from Diana' s earrings.

I think Kate or her family ( I mean whoever bought them)  were trying to channel Diana again

It's a form of stalking. That's what The Potato Head is all about.

They could only be the top part of these ( http://blog.angara.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/DianaDoubleDropSapphireEarrings.jpg ), but even in this picture it is obvious they are not, Waity's are smaller than these smaller ones on top.

Creepy fits it. When I discovered this forum some moons ago I thought you were all nut cases esp when saying Kate was copying Diana, b/c in some cases yes it is obvious that she is, but in some only the colour is the same, or the neckline and I thought you were bonkers. Wasn't Waity's fan by any stretch, but thought you were the proverbial "haters" (even though I often agreed, you just seemed to sometimes cross the line by far). Having combed through this and one other forum at length I have come to the conclusion that actually you all saw everything for exactly what it is and Waity copies even just a colour scheme (you were never crossing any line by any stretch). It is awful. The best is of course that I saw the light and joined  flirt

^ That's hilarious (last link) and shows just what an idiot she is and that she has no clue what to buy and just goes for the same shyte... smh...

The earrings in question were supposedly Kate's modern twist on these earrings worn by Diana.

Thank you!
Honestly I think they aren' t Diana' s earring remodernized, I think they are a new pair because Kate' s are more oval than Diana's.

I don't know, it was several times whispered that the Medds made them.

https://pmchollywoodlife.files.wordpress.com/2011/07/070611_dianna_earring110706132002.jpg

In some pics Waity's look lighter blue than Diana's in similar light and smaller and very different, like here (there are more pics obvs were they look vastly different)

http://s1.ibtimes.com/sites/www.ibtimes.com/files/styles/lg/public/2012/10/03/2011/07/26/137523-diana-s-pair-of-sapphire-and-diamond-earrings.jpg

The palace, nor Waity, ever said they were Diana's. They use the poor woman whenever they can, if they were Diana's they'd have said so for the "aaahhhhh how sweet" effect. Even though everyone says "eeewww no!"

Very sorry for the double post, but I can't edit my old one to add my question:

She's wearing a bracelet tonight I do not think I have seen before. It's always the same earrings though. Anyone know anything about the bracelet? For reference

^ I think at the time she wore queenie's wedding bracelet and her own she got from Charlie. (from Charles http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-YLLbVmnYvOg/UpI8psSdCUI/AAAAAAAAleQ/7Mtdi9xxFJU/s1600/catherine+duchess.jpg )
Went for a quick look and you might be right, doesn't look like the one from Charlie

On the left hand. Any info on it?

^^ No way, Charlie's is the first link I posted and the bracelet from tonight and the Chinese banquet is a lot bigger and has many more diamonds... I cannot believe this to be a real bracelet, unless it was a wedding gift and she unearthed it now, it is huge and seeing how her budget was slashed dramatically over the past few years she can't have purchased it.. Wedding gift or loan?

sorry for double posting again  sorry but I finally found out about the bracelet, it used to be queen Mary's choker and then it was converted to a bracelet, which the queen mum used to wear often

The point is if it was new it would have been hyped, you know anytime Kate gets a new pair of earring it is so hyped everywhere. That' s why I don' t think it is new.
After all we see her jewels through pictures, we can' t see them properly, they look pretty similar to me

^ Very true, did not think of that. It's an old piece from queen Mary anyway, so we know now what it is  thumbsup
