The Duchess of Cambridge wore the sparkling blue ensemble to arrive at Philip SW Goldson International Airport in Belize on Saturday 19.

Kate Middleton wore a pair of sapphire and diamond earrings, a favorite of the royal family worn often.

This time, matching her beautiful cluster earrings, Kate was seen wearing a two-drop sapphire and diamond cluster pendant mounted on a beautiful yellow gold chain.

The necklace is topped by a smaller band with a slight variation, as it is comprised of a 0.50ct round sapphire rather than the oval or cushion shape seen in the earrings and the main pendant.

It is surrounded by five smaller diamonds of approximately 0.15 carats each.

Plus, the similarity between the earrings and the pendant gives us a clue to the sequel’s origins.

It is highly likely that these were remodeled from existing jewelry belonging to the royal family or possibly from Diana’s own collection.

I would expect the pendant alone to fetch over £25,000 if it ever came up for auction, and the matching set of earrings and pendant £75,000.

The beautiful matching set is often the subject of many rumors regarding its provenance.

These earrings would often have been a gift to Princess Diana, the late mother of Prince William, of the Saudi royal family.

However, the earrings do not appear to be the same gemstones, due to the difference in size of the sapphires.

However, the earrings may be from another set in Diana’s own collection.

Another one great pendant to rival Kate’s can be purchased from Prestige.

Kate has another set of sapphire earrings linked to a beloved senior royal.

The Queen Mother’s Kate Middleton earrings are said to fetch well over £1million.

Kate wore the gemstones to the ‘Together at Christmas’ community carol service at Westminster Abbey on December 8 last year.

The Duchess also wore the pair to a state dinner to welcome former US President Donald Trump to the country in June 2019.
