The pendant today could have looked nice with a different outfit, something plain, but with such a very "busy" frock, it really was a waste of time wearing it, and it looked terrible against such a background.  Who advises her, that is what I want to know, and it sure can´t be anyone sensible from BP, they would never let her out in that frock to visit a  concentration camp, never.

She is a total embarrassment from the get go. She gets worse with each passing day. She is The Spectacle and should not be set out among the public.

Looks like one of those cheap little rings that fall out of a Christmas cracker, it really does, nothing elegant, classy or special about it.  As my gran used to say, she would make anything look cheap and tacky, about the only talent she has  easter-lol easter-lol

Kate must have peed herself with excitement, after the Lover's Knot & one of Di's pearl earrings, she is now wearing one of Diana's pearl bracelets

Wonder what else we'll see. Haven't seen anything of Dia's since Kate married in and now two pieces in about two weeks.

To round up the jewellery thread:

According to the dm the mismatched ruby & diamond jewellery from the first day is noted to be from G Collins & Sons
"GH Collins & Sons necklace (£1,525) and earrings (£1,880): £3,400"
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-4717654/Kate-s-26-000-royal-tour-wardrobe.html
Pics as reminder:

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DE74tQ8XgAA-SJf.jpg
Which I think is cheapish considering the size and look of the jewellery, and considering that one pair of Kiki earrings with amethysts and aquamarines can easily be more expensive than the ruby and diamond set. Diana's engagement ring was even at the time considerably more expensive and the stones are the same (coloured corundum & colourless carbon) and smaller on top of that. Oh well.

The ring has not been identified to my knowledge

This still remains a mystery at this point:

^^ Those items may have been the amber jewellery which were given to her by Poland.

^ Not quite, I don't think so, because reportedly they were gifted these amber jewellery pieces in Poland, cufflinks for him and necklace for her

If I were HM, I would never lend any of my fabulous jewels to that stalking tart who has put the Rf in extreme jeopardy with all of her unbelievable actions.

That's why I think all those "jewels from Liz" are fakes that Ma had made up.

No it's not the same brooch, but both are pearl & diamond styles. She also wore Di's earrings again

today Liz's brooch and Di's earrings

vs

yesterday, with the ugly Balenciaga earrings; to date nothing is known about the brooch to my knowledge, but it appears to be costume jewellery (like the earrings) and K wore it first time to trooping the colour in 2014 (or so it seems)

I think this is yet another way for her to copy Diana.  Diana apparently used to mix costume jewelry with the real stuff.  Whereas Diana had the taste or at least great stylists to pull this off, Council Cath doesn't.

I thought the same, she's copying Diana by "mixing" high street and high end, but all her "high end" is diddly Kiki stuff and her "high street" is overpriced tat.
I remember well people saying how Diana would nip out to the shops on the high street and buy for very little money costume jewellery, which she then wore to engagements. That is far away from Kate shelling out hundreds for faux pearl & diamond atrocities made by Balenciaga. There is literally nothing "thrifty" (and never has been) about Duchass Doolittle.

Though I do wonder what she has stashed away. During the Olympics she wore that super expenisve ugly Cartier Trinity necklace, for which she received massive backlash and hasn't been seen since. She has that diamond & tanzanite cluster set of necklace & earrings by G Collins & Sons, which falls into high end and now she wore in Poland what appears to be a diamond & ruby (mismatched) set. So some expensive stuff must be around, hidden. And given her shopping addiction, I bet she does shop regularly for more expensive jewellery, just doesn't take it out in public.

And many of the very expensive things she has (incl some of the wedding jewellery she received) came from ominous "family friends". Amazingly nothing from other royal houses  Cool

Anybody who knows how to wear jewelry understands the importance of having core pieces that reflect your personality.  Kate's Cartier watch, for instance, is too masculine and sporty to wear the majority of the time.  And Big Blue does not suit her at all.  It's an important piece but it dated itself early and never should have been given to her.  It will always be Diana's Ring.

What she seems to be doing is buying pieces that are families of Diana's ring.  She has far too many pieces that are stones circled with smaller stones and it's too matchy matchy and ends up looking cheap.

She's got to develop a true sense of her own style before setting up a wardrobe of jewels but that seems unlikely to happen.
