The butterfly earrings worn by Meghan was a part of Diana's personal jewelry collection, but it has not been confirmed whether or not it was a purchase or a gift to her back then. She was first spotted wearing the pair back in May 1986 when she paid a royal visit to Canada. Meanwhile, her gold bangle bracelet was last spotted on her during a stroll in London back in 1990.

Although the duchess often sports pieces by numerous trendy jewelry designers, she opted to go for some of Princess Diana's jewelry for more high profile occasions such as their country visit. Another time she sported one of her mother-in-law's pieces was during her own wedding, including her engagement ring which has two diamonds that belonged to Prince Harry's beloved mom.
