Video: 7 Of Princess Diana's Most Famous Jewelry
Princess Diana is one of the few who, without any exaggeration, can be called a style icon. She was flawless in all her manifestations. Not a single hair strayed from her styling, her dresses fit perfectly, and her accessories were chosen with unprecedented precision. One of the key "calling cards" of Lady Dee's style is her jewelry, which she wore absolutely masterly. And although her daughters-in-law Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton periodically appear in rings, earrings and necklaces that belonged to Diana, no one else can do the way she wore them. Here are seven of Princess Diana's most famous pieces of jewelry - and how she stylized them.

Perhaps the most famous photo of Princess Diana was taken at her wedding, followed by millions of people around the world. And attention to them is drawn not only by the iconic Lady Di dress from David and Elizabeth Emanuel, but also by the tiara studded with diamonds. This amazingly beautiful jewelry made of gold, covered with a layer of silver on top, belonged to Diana's father - John Spencer. In the 1930s, the craftsmen of the Garrard Jewelry House created this exquisite tiara from the jewelry that was already in the collection of the Spencer family. After the wedding, the Princess of Wales also wore this tiara at several other major events. After her tragic death, the family heirloom was inherited by Diana's brother Charles. No one ever wore it again.
Jewelry set with sapphires
Perhaps Diana's most iconic jewelry set is the sapphire and diamond set received as a weddingt from the royal family of Saudi Arabia. It has been specially crafted by Asprey's jewelers to match her engagement ring. However, the most famous item from this collection was invented by Diana herself: as they would say now, Diana did an upcycling. At her request, the court jewelers turned the watch into a choker with a dark blue velvet ribbon, in which she later appeared in public more than once. She also loved to wear it as a tiara - she would later repeat this favorite stylistic device with other jewelry.
Tiara Lover's Knot
The legendary Lover's Knot tiara went to the princess as a weddingt from the royal family. It was created in 1914 for Queen Mary by the Garrard jewelers. It is adorned with a scattering of diamonds and several teardrop-shaped pearls that have belonged to the royal family for many years. Diana wore this jewel to many important official events, but after the divorce she was forced to return it back to the royal family. Later, it became one of the favorite jewelry of the Duchess of Cambridge Catherine - Lady Dee's daughter-in-law wears it no less gracefully (and about the same often).
Choker with emeralds
The emerald choker is another piece of jewelry that Diana decided to style in her own way. And it again previously belonged to Queen Mary. Diana wore a luxurious necklace with emeralds for its intended purpose more than once - but once she decided to wear it as a tiara (like a choker with a sapphire). She did not lack courage in stylistic devices.
Ring with aquamarine
Another jewel that previously belonged to the royal family is a luxurious ring with a huge aquamarine. True, unlike the tiara, Diana received it after the divorce. She often wore it on her ring finger instead of an engagement or engagement ring. After her death, Prince Harry inherited it and presented it to his future wife Meghan Markle, who wore it to the wedding ceremony.
String of pearls
At less formal events, Diana preferred pearls to diamonds and sapphires, appropriate in any situation. She especially liked to put on a long pearl thread, which she wore in hundreds of different ways - tying it in a knot, throwing it over the back or wrapping it around the neck in several layers.
Sapphire pearl choker
Another legendary item - and again a royal wedding gift. She gained cult status after two events: first, Princess Diana wore it with a velvet dress for a gala evening, where she danced with John Travolta. And then - along with the famous "dress of revenge", in which Lady Dee beautifully avenged Prince Charles for public recognition of treason.
