Yes it does appear to be the Collingwood earrings that Diana wore often with the Cambridge tiara.

Sometimes a photo from the event is released and sometimes not.  :xmas15:

Looks of concern from the Cambridges as they had just witnessed one of their motorcycle outriders coming off his bike at speed

That photo looks more like an arguing couple than a concerned one. Is there a link about the outrider?   :xmas6:

Issues with motorcycles always remind me of Barry Manakee  :flower:
"No other member of the Royal Family mattered that year, or I think for the next 17 years, it was just her." Arthur Edwards, The Sun Photographer, talking about Diana's impact.

Poor old Brian Manakee. By the way, Duch_, do you know anything about the new book, Diana: A Portrait, which has just come out? It's quite expensive, but apparently it has lots of new photos of Diana, and interviews with people who knew her, and Sarah McCorqudale has been involved in helping produce it. I'd buy it only it's not on Kindle which is always considerably cheaper than print. (My house is choked with books!)

Whoops, sorry, wrong thread!

@wannable-Here is some more information on Diana's earrings. The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Royal Jewels of the Day: Diana's Collingwood Diamonds these were part of Diana's personal jewelry collection.

Quote
     "Collingwood, who have been the Spencer family jewellers since Lady Diana was a girl, had wanted to present her with the diamond set as their wedding gift, but Palace officials ruled that such a valuable present would be improper. The necklace and earrings were subsequently offered for sale by an Iranian jeweller in D?sseldorf, Genio Hakimi, who claimed they were Spencer heirlooms that had been sold to pay for the wedding. He had bought them from an unscrupulous dealer who offered the engagement photograph as proof that the jewels were Spencer property."

The current whereabouts of the troublesome diamond suite are unknown. However, Collingwood did manage to give the new Princess of Wales a sparkling wedding gift in the end: these simple diamond and pearl drop earrings, which Diana wore often, and which were a perfect match for that famous tiara on loan from the Queen.
