Kate's and Meghan's honoring the Princess Diana

A Sparkling Tribute: Princes’ Wives Share Diana's Treasures

In the past, Princess Diana captured hearts with her kindness, humor, and relatability. More recently, the public has grown to love Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, the wives of Diana’s sons William and Harry. Both females have honored their mother-in-law’s memory with their tasteful jewelry selections.

Blake Asaad, the founder of GOODSTONE, discusses the dazzling heirlooms Kate and Meghan inherited from Princess Diana.

The Sapphire Blue Engagement Ring

Diana’s engagement ring is probably the most famous piece of jewelry that Kate inherited. Blake says, ‘Its design resembles Queen Victoria’s sapphire brooch, creating a sense of historical continuity.’ In 2010, Prince William used it when he proposed to Kate in Africa. 

Earring Sets

Kate and Diana have shared several sets of beautiful earrings, including:

  • Sapphire and diamond double-drop earrings

  • Sapphire and diamond single-stud earrings

  • Collingwood pearl and diamond earrings

The double-drop sapphire earrings were a wedding gift to Diana from the Crown Prince Fahd of Saudi Arabia. Kate has worn them many times, including during a Christmas walkabout in 2023.

The Aquamarine Ring

On Meghan’s wedding day, she wore two rings. The first was a wedding band made of Welsh gold, and the second was Diana’s aquamarine ring. 

Photographers were able to take photos of the jewelry during the wedding reception at Frogmore House, and later during a royal tour of Tonga. Blake says, ‘Diana also owned a matching bracelet, but it’s not known who inherited it.’

The Diamond Bracelet

Diana’s diamond bracelet was worn by Meghan when she and Harry spoke to Oprah in 2021. Some of its stones were used in the creation of Meghan’s engagement ring. 

According to Blake, ‘Meghan also wore the bracelet when she attended the Salute to Freedom Gala in New York City.’ 

Special Occasions

Kate wore Diana’s pearl necklace for the Queen’s funeral, perhaps to remember her death as well as the Queen’s. At King Charles’ Scottish coronation, she wore Diana’s Japanese four-chain pearl necklace and the Collingwood pearl earrings.  

Diana wore gold butterfly earrings in 1986 when she made a trip to Canada. Meghan wore them in Australia, for her first public appearance after announcing her pregnancy. 

Blake says, ‘These stunning accessories have enhanced the natural beauty of these three women during significant occasions, while allowing Kate and Meghan to honor the memory of their respective husbands’ mother. They evoke a sense of history, majesty, and precious memories.’
