The Saudi Sapphire Suite
This stunning collection of jewellery was made with Burmese sapphires and baguette diamonds.
Diana was very fond of wearing sapphires, and the blue gems became somewhat of a signature look for her.
The suite consisted of a necklace, a bracelet, earrings, and a watch and bracelet, which were later turned into a choker.
Diana, who like to restyle her jewels, turned the watch and ring elements of the suite into a headband style tiara.
Diana wore the suite to the National Film Institute Dinner at the Royal Festival Hall in December 1981.
It is not known what happened to the whole of the set, but Kate Middleton has worn the earrings, which she modified into a drop style.

Princess Diana often switched the pendant for another wedding gift from The Queen Mother, the Prince of Wales Feathers brooch.
