The Duchess in the Princess’ Jewelry

As we know Prince William (now the Duke of Cambridge) gave his then girlfriend Kate Middleton his late mother’s Sapphire engagement ring. He didn’t stop there, he recently gave his new wife Princess Diana’s Sapphire and Diamond earrings. She’s been seen on their tour of Canada and the US sporting them a few times.

These earrings were a favorite of Diana and she was often photographed wearing them over the years. They were originally made as studs but Kate added her own touch to them by turning them into drop earrings. They match nicely with Kate’s engagement ring.

We have very similar earrings to these at that resemble both the original Sapphire & diamond studs and Kate’s updated drop earrings version.

What do you think of remodeling jewelry that was a family heirloom? Would you keep it as is or alter it to fit your personal style?
