Dress Like A Princess! How Kate And Meghan Style Diana’s Favorite Pieces, And You Can Too December 15, 2021 (0 comments)


London, UK—The Duchesses of Cambridge and Sussex—aka Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle—have often been seen wearing jewelry that belonged to the late Princess Diana, the iconic mother-in-law they never got to meet.

Both women are fashion icons themselves. Fashion webzine Who What Wear took a look at how they styled some of Diana’s favorite jewelry pieces, and offered a few similar options available to us commoners. While Who What Wear’s lookalike picks are mostly fashion jewelry, there is no shortage of similar fine jewelry for the princess in all your customers. Here are a few:

Butterfly earrings: Both Princess Diana and the Duchess of Sussex wore them in a way that was trend-appropriate for their time: Diana dressed them up with a coordinating butterfly necklace on an omega chain; the Duchess of Sussex dressed them down, skipping the matchy-matchy look and casually wearing them in lieu of a diamond stud.

Princess Diana was a fan of classic pearls and diamonds, particularly a diamond tennis bracelet and a multi-strand pearl bracelet, along with numerous pairs of pearl earrings (top image). Both the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex often wear the same looks.

Of course, Diana’s sapphire-and-diamond ring, presented by Prince William to Kate Middleton, is undoubtedly the most famous engagement ring in the world. But the late Diana also loved to wear matching earrings, and so does Duchess Kate (image, Getty via Who What Wear). Here’s a pair from Oscar Heyman, featuring 2 oval sapphires, 13.22 ctw, and four round diamonds, 2.56 ctw, set in platinum:
