Before her tragic death, Princess Diana made it clear that she wanted her stunning collection of jewelry to go to her sons' future wives. In a "letter of wishes," she wrote, "I would like you to allocate all my jewellery to the share to be held by my sons, so that their wives may, in due course, have it or use it. I leave the exact division of the jewellery to your discretion." Over the course of their relationship, Prince Harry's wife Meghan Markle has been seen sporting a number of items that once belonged to his mother, from butterfly earrings to a vibrant cocktail ring. Here are all the pieces of Diana's jewelry that Meghan inherited from Princess Diana.

And when Meghan launched her clothing line for Smart Works, she paired the two pieces again . Most recently, the Duchess of Sussex wore the dainty bracelet at the NAACP Image Awards in early 2022.

On Meghan's wedding day , she debuted two rings: a simple wedding band made of Welsh gold, and Princess Diana's Aquamarine ring. After the ceremony, Meghan changed to head to her reception at Frogmore House ( top ) and was first photographed wearing the colorful piece of jewelry.

In 2018, she brought it out on her royal tour of Tonga , at a welcome reception with the country's king and queen ( above ) . The ring is actually part of a set, with a matching bracelet, but at this point, it's unclear if the Duchess of Sussex received both pieces.
