The thing with this choker is that it was made to fit QE's neck and it shows, on both Di and Kate it's slightly to big (not saying that QE has a thick neck or anything legs)
But it just hangs wrong on the skinny necks of Kate and Di, it's like they have one pearl to much on the lower 2 rows to look fitting, does that make sense? dontknow

^Yes.  Perfect sense.  Someone was not at their post when draping it on her neck.  It’s too big so hangs awkwardly.

Well, considering it's 'a loan' from QE  I assume they wouldn't just redo the whole thing for one eve!
It's not like you can just snap those pearls in an' out of place!

This is why she needs some classic-type fitted pieces of her own, or it will always look like she's playing dress-up with mummy's jewels! bignono

^Yes, you did! 

If this woman ever properly planned anything, it’s not that big a deal for a jeweler to adjust the necklace and, if not, pick something else.  It’s not like there’s a shortage of bling around there.  She just looks at the thrill of getting something without seeing the big picture.  Does she not have a mirror?  Why oh why do I keep expecting anything???

Because my dear, you're a good person who tries to see the best in ppl and hope they listen to good advise and change for the better. hug

I just hope the Midd's aren't reading/spying in here anymore (like they did in the beginning) and whine to Willy to go Pippa shopping! nervous

Seems she debuted the necklace for the first time, seeing some of her things I've thought for a while now that she has some stuff stashed away, hidden, though still nothing overly "grand" and nowhere near the level of what Diana had (incl in terms of marriage gifts). Seems to be largely assumed she's received this diamonds & emerald set from a middle eastern family as wedding gift

these earrings she's worn at the BAFTAs seem to be also part of the set, they fit pretty well with the design of the necklace and the drop style earrings

I read someone saying they are Diana's, and even though Diana had similar emerald & diamond earrings, they appear to have been much smaller.

This I should a sincere general question.

If Cambridges were to divorce, would these wedding gifts to WK be solely her property?

The reason I'm asking is that sometimes they are given back to HM as they were on personal loan in the first place.

Thanks folks.  thankyou

I have an idea they would be split between W&W since they were wedding gifts. But idk for sure.

If anything is on loan, it goes back to the RF; if it's personal, Kate would keep it for herself and I do not believe that Kate would be restricted from selling it for a profit. The gifts, that is debatable since after all, it came to her via her title and would be arguably the property of the State.

After the divorce, Diana couldn't wear Queen Mary's emeralds or the tiaras that were the property of the BRF; even her brother asked for the Spencer Tiara back. It's not like Diana could legally represent the RF since she was no longer a legal member. Anything that the Queen has loaned her, would be confiscated back.

Personal jewellery given by family, friends etc as wedding gifts to Kate would of course still be hers. Any gifts of jewellery given by foreign governments or monarchs, like the Saudis for instance, would have been given as a result of her position as a future Royal. Therefore it could be argued that they belong to the Crown and go into the vaults.

This isn't the 19th century, and I think royals from other royal houses give each other more practical gifts nowadays. Nor do English counties or Girls of England etc come up with jewels in the form of tiaras, brooches etc. I doubt that anyone beside the Middle Eastern royals, Kate's immediate family and perhaps the Queen and Charles gave jewellery as gifts anyway.
