COLLINGWOOD DIAMOND GIRANDOLE EARRINGS AND DIAMOND NECKLACE

The diamond earrings and necklace were on loan from Collingwood jewelers, which were the jewelers favored by the Spencer Family ever since Lady Diana was a girl.  The jewelries were borrowed for the official engagement photographs taken by Lord Snowdon at Highgrove House.  Collingwood had wanted to give this set to Diana as a wedding present but it was deemed inappropriate by Palace officials.  Collingwood did present Diana with a diamond and pearl earrings.  The necklace and earrings were sold by an Iranian jeweler in Dusseldorf, Genio Hakimi, who claimed they were Spencer heirlooms that had been sold to pay for the wedding (The Queen's Jewels p.36, Leslie Field).  He used these photographs as proof. 

I sometimes I wonder who owns this set.

DIAMOND TEARDROP EARRINGS

Well, I'm not sure about this.  Perhaps it's an opal to match the opal stone in the pearl choker.  But since I don't have a better photo, I'm calling it a diamond teardrop.
