Princess Diana's JewelryDiana had access to a wide range of the British Royal Family's jewels after her 1981 marriage to Prince Charles, and acquired her own jewelry collection during and after those years. The pictures in this Princess Diana photo gallery illustrate some of her favorite styles, like pearls of all types, which were a part of her ensemble for many public events. Chokers were another favorite, some simple and others ornate (Diana sometimes clipped a brooch to the center of a pearl choker).
Princess Diana wasn't afraid to combine elements from one piece of jewelry into another or wear jewelry in non-traditional ways -- she wore Queen Mary's emerald choker as a headband during a 1985 trip to Australia.
Kate Middleton married Princess Diana's son, Prince William, on April 29, 2011. William gave her Diana's sapphire and diamond engagement ring when he and Kate became engaged.
