Review Q&A bentley diamond

Why do people mock names, especially those of black Americans, in the US? It surprises me, especially when there’s a prominent US politician named “Newt.” Why is having the name “Diamond” or “Deja” considered weird but “Mitt” or “Tanner” is not?

Newt had a peak popularity of 660th. While it is an uncommon name in recent history, it is a classic name. Mitt is definitely a weird name, though it sounds like a nickname for someone who was skilled at baseball or such. Newt and Mitt were mocked in the press and they probably all were horribly teased in school. They have been in the public eye for 50 years so it is simply less common with time. President Obama is fairly new to the public eye and his name is foreign in origin which gives it added ‘oddness’. Tanner is actually a common name, it’s rank was 336th at the peak of its popularity. Diamond is a bit strange due to its historical association with adult entertainers. Deja is simply a rare name, presumably derived from ‘Deja Vu’. All of the names but Tanner are ‘weird’ in that they are uncommon (not in the top 1000 babynames for the past 50 years). Generally unique names are beneficial for politicians and entertainers where name recognition is important, but for most other careers they are risky because they are associated with poverty (middle class parents regardless of race tend to use common names for their children, or names that were recently popular with the wealthy; upper class tend to pick names that have fallen out of style but were once popular if they aim for unique; but the poor are much more likely to make a name up, use a name they associate with wealth (Bentley, Diamond, Royce), or use a name that has risky associations)

What is the most ridiculously expensive luxury material used in an automobile?

This is a special version of the cockpit of the SUV Bentley Bentayga There is one part on the dashboard here that makes it just ridiculous. It uses diamonds, solid gold, and some other fancy materials like ebony and mother-of-pearl. Can you guess what it is? Hint, it adds $300,000 to the price of the car. It's right there in the middle. It's this That's a Breitling Mulliner Tourbillon clock. And it's insane what work goes into it. The clock alone is worth more than the entry model of this car. Breitling only makes 4 of these a year. So if there's one thing that tops the list of ridiculous additions to a car it has to be this one Most expensive SUV gets an even pricier clock

What is your dream daily driver car?

A daily driver? Maybe a new Continental GT? This is the 2019 Bentley Continental GT, meaning it hasn’t been released yet. It packs a twin-turbo W12 making 626 horsepower. Bentley says it’ll go from 0 to 60 in 3.6 seconds, so it’s damn quick. It tops out at 207 miles per hour, so it’s also damn fast. This refreshed Continental looks sleeker than the current Continental anyways. Comparison. 2018 on top. 2019 on bottom. The differences may be small, but it contributes to a more aggressive car. Have you seen the interior? It’s freaking amazing. Besides, there’s a special little display you get. What, you don’t see anything? Let me flip it real quick. And I’ll flip it again. Yes, the new Continental has three-sided rotating display. Oh, and four seats. The things you can get with a $200,000, give or take a few hundred grand. I find the detail absolutely insane. The seats use a special “diamond in diamond” pattern that apparently took 18 months to develop. 18 months! I could be one and a half years older in 18 months. The headlights are inspired by fine cut glasses. They reflect light like diamonds. Some call it overkill. I call it awesome, in an excessive way.

Is Rolls Royce overrated?

Strictly financially, nothing over $50k is worth it nowadays, and the benefit you get from spending above that point is definitely not justifiable. If you’re really after buying expensive, you need to see what is unique about a brand, with all the fine details, so it’s worth exploring the product line and the known competition, to understand what Rolls Royce does better or worse. Is it overrated? Absolutely not, it’s all about how well it’s suited to your taste, and even if you’re fortunate enough to afford one, how wild you’re prepared to be financially for the sake of a toy. The main competing product lines are: Phantom vs Mulsanne vs Maybach Wraith vs Bentley GT vs S Class Coupe Dawn vs Bentley GTC vs S Class Cabriolet Cullinan vs Bentayga vs ???(G class maybe) A few years ago I researched the 2nd product line comparison thoroughly, and at the time ended up purchasing my S63 Coupé, a decision I do regret a lot, for several reasons. I’ve driven all three cars for significant periods of time, and owned the Merc for about 40k miles. First, let me sum up the conclusions, I’ll detail below. Best value for money: ,Bentley Best tech,: Mercedes Best driver,’,s car:, Bentley Most comfortable ride,: Rolls Royce Cheapest cost of ownership,: Rolls Royce Best value retention,: Rolls Royce Best quality of service: ,Rolls Royce Best purchase overall right now: ,Used Rolls Royce Wraith Durability: ,Rolls Royce. It’s a softly driven car, so it might outlive you without too much work. Worst car : ,Mercedes by far; most expensive to run and the steepest depreciation of the lot percentage wise. By far the worst customer service and car service of all automotive brands, disgustingly bad. Rolls Royce The key difference as others have pointed out is presence; Rolls Royce will definitely win the head turner competition here by very far. But that’s not the thing to focus on. More importantly it’s worth understanding the specifics of the design language, because I think that’s what makes and breaks the car. There’s no Bentley Diamond Knirling, no quilted leather, no LED lights and flashy 21st century carbon fibre shinny details, it’s by far the closest to its 1930s version than all other brands. The whole design language is much much simpler, and the car is definitely tailored for far less tech savvy consumers. There’s a button for each seat and for each function, and it only does one thing. Everything inside has big text written on it, as you would label things for children. It’s a senior citizen’s car in terms of design language, and while you can colour it up to match your wallpaper dreams, the design language in itself is 100% in that direction. The centre console has those ivory-like finished assignable function buttons that look like a 1930s radio. The ride comfort is amazing, the seats are the best in the business by a country mile - they have the softest feel and one simply sinks in to them. The Bentley and S Class Coupe are really nice, but Rolls Royce is of another world. The Starlight roof might feel like a gimmick from a distance, but up close and personal it’s just serene and amazing — 100% worth it. In a Wraith you can get Starlight or Panoramic glass roof, but not both; in a Dawn I think it’s neither. The car is not sporty at all, the 0 to 60 time is ~4 second plus even in the driver’s Rolls, and it feels like one really big boat, especially when I brake. But what’s very important to understand, when you drive a Rolls you don’t care one bit about being the first at the traffic light, the whole experience is so serene and relaxed, and the whole design language in the car is so tranquil, you will often find yourself driving below the speed limit; the acceleration in the car feels entirely pointless. It's like taking your most comfortable memory foam mattress for a ride around town. Do you feel like going for a 500m lap record time run when you sink in to bed after a long day? I bet you don’t - same with a Rolls Royce. Also if you drive one, you can likely afford to own a sports car too, so you wouldn’t really care about the performance; it’s way more than plentiful for any kind of driving you’ll ever do on public roads. The only place where I personally think it absolutely sucks is the rear wheel drive. Right now you cannot get a 4WD, which makes absolutely no sense whatsoever considering the nature of the product they are selling. Maybe this is only true for the UK market, I’ve been told in good confidence in about three years time they could be releasing a 4WD Wraith. This is a point of view of what a Rollie pony feels like from inside. It’s a Dawn but I think it’s 100% identical to a Wraith, and a Ghost/Phantom for that matter, at least in terms of design. Contrary to popular belief I’d argue ,Rolls Royces are the cheapest to run,, at least while under warranty,., Every purchase comes with 4 years full service and warranty, including oil changes, brake pads, and any other kind of consumables, for no additional charge. None of the other two brands will offer this, and the post warranty servicing will be quite expensive. The only thing you ever pay for is tires, but they tend to last far far longer than they do in a Bentley or Merc, just because your driving style in a Rolls will never be sporty, whereas the other two cars are kind of designed to be fast road yachts. I also rate the sales experience the highest by some margin, Rolls is more careful about who they chose to represent the brand, and far more focused. They have a very very limited number of customers, and they are extremely aware of that. Mercedes sells top end cars, 1 every 100k A classes, so to them this is a side dish for marketing, but for Rolls Royce this is the bread and butter. It’s owned by BMW nowadays, so it shares quite a bit with a 7 series, from the chassis(I think), to the infotainment and rear wheel drive train, and who knows how much more under the hood. Both these last two could do with massive improvements to be truly worthy of a Rolls badge, as they don’t really qualify, in my honest view. The software on the infotainment looks amateurish compared to Merc/Bentley and RWD is just plain lazy engineering. Bentley It’s the most GT focused car of the lot, as it ties in the driving capability with the interior far better than the other brands do. You get a 4WD W12 engine, which is really quiet around town, but packs very very serious punch if you want it to. The top speed doesn’t come limited to 155mph and you don’t get charged an extra 2–3k to unlock the power your car already packs (e.g. Mercedes AMG Driver’s package). The GT will do ,207 mph,, or ~335kph, which for a heavy GT car is absolutely bonkers! You might argue there’s no road where you would actually have use for that. Obviously you’ve never been to Germany at night time. If you find yourself in Germany or on a track, the Bentley is still a car you want to be in, even if it’s not a race car. Our friends at Top Gear have proven that a long time ago, and from my personal experience behind the steering wheel of a GT OH MY GOD is it insane. I wasn’t impressed with the previous generation GT in terms of technology and interior, but the 2018 one is to die for. Not accounting for taste of course, as this is the spec my one would come in. It seems to share the centre console element with a Panamera or at least it’s quite close, but otherwise Bentley has grown another league with the 2018 GT. They have also upped the game significantly with amazing tech, all the creature confits for a GT car, including a proper cruise control system, lane assist, 360 camera, parking etc, so it’s very on par with the king in the category, Mercedes. If you want to explore the options, Mr JWW does an impeccable job as always walking you through them. Bentley also has the best sound system of all three cars (again not accounting for taste). Bang and Olufsen is a near studio-quality piece of gear for acoustic aficionados (jazz, classical, opera, rock), while the Naim for Bentley is a very rich sound, with lots of deep bass - probably the most suitable for 21st century style hits. This is what being behind the steering wheel in a GT feels like. Service packages are extra, and cost-wise, a fully kitted out Bentley GT will spot on match an S65 AMG Coupe, but sitting inside them there’s absolutely no contest whatsoever; the GT is a another level of car, with far better road presence and a far greater feel of exclusivity. It will still depreciate steeply, because it’s the best sold Bentley, so there are loads of them around, but if you were buying brand new today, Bentley GT is the car to buy of the three. Mercedes “The best or nothing”. Right off the bat a Mercedes will do everything the other cars will do, and generally for a lot less money. What they realised is that “nothing” is much cheaper to mass produce than “the best”, so true to their philosophy in many ways you get the “nothing”. AMG is the king of all things depreciation, and I can understand why first-hand, but it took owning one to reach the unfortunate conclusion. It still comfortably cruises at 186mph if I want it to; I’ve researched this feature extensively on the German Autobahn. For a £160k build of a 2018 S63 Coupe, the retained value after 4 years and 20k miles is £45k, and those are numbers given by Mercedes Finance. That’s absolutely insane, and it will continue after year 4, until your £160k Merc is worth £15k 7 years later. What was even more amazing was the configurator in the dealership didn’t work, so when they hit the final go button I got an “oops sorry”. The true Mercedes experience. It does look good though now that they’ve gone for the different grill on AMGs, you just have to research the image instead of configuring one. This sequence of videos and the initial test drive is what got me to buy the car, so I think they are quite the sight to see. If you see one on the market in 2022, and you’re thinking it’s a good idea, keep the money in the bank - it will cost you that per year to run, just because of how badly it’s made and how much servicing it needs. You can go through the tech feature list one by one, acceleration times and whatnot as much as you want - that’s not really what you’re going to care about. The exhaust notes are fun, unlike Rolls or Bentley, and it has really good split personality from Comfort to Sport mode. Manual in an AMG is a useless detail, but in a GT or Wraith you can’t even access it. Here’s some point of view content, so you can see for yourself what being behind the steering wheel feels like. The S Coupe would be better than the other two if the design was a little more exclusive and if it wasn’t completely machine built with stock parts, which drives value down tremendously, yet the buy price is no different to a Bentley. This is my mass produced heavily depreciating pride and joy. And on occasion I’ve done some very very serious driving throughout Europe. This drive was nearly continuous, and the average speed includes the Calais -> Dover by ferry transit time, a few borders, etc. so needles to say it was pushed. This is the dashboard view in the 2018 one, with the Porcelain/Titian Red finish, and the Euro market only veneer finishing of the dash. It’s an equally serene and upscale place to be, accounting for taste it’s far more modern than a Rolls Royce and to my eyes, can be better than a Bentley for some people, me included, as it’s simpler, cleaner, and less noisy. Maybach under Mercedes ownership is a fancier S class, which means it will do everything a Rolls will do, but the level of customisation you get for your own car is 0. Mercedes is simply not a brand designed to customise anything — you either like the stock combinations or else. Customisation is offensively expensive - I don’t even know how they come up with the numbers. £22k for a custom interior layout was the last quote I got, and that was combining two colours they already stock and buy in volumes. I’ve been told it’s because they are machine built, so custom means they build the car with a black interior and then strip it apart to customise. Obviously there are companies like Brabus, Mansory and others who can help, but that nearly doubles the price you pay, it’s something like £40 plus for a leather package. It’s as first world problems as it gets, but when you spend this kind of money on a toy, you want it to look the part, but Mercedes tends to recycle variations of the same colour palettes all the way from A Class to S class or whatever else. At the time of my research, the tech in a Mercedes was far superior to the other two brands - Bentley GT has since caught up a lot. Rolls is a bit disappointing on this front, by comparison. It’s also way more modern, and even the age of the actors included in the Maybach commercial and the Phantom commercial will differ. Mercedes has ambient lights, sleek modern design and so on; it’s a lot more “of its time”. It's beautiful in a different way. Amateur photograph by yours truly, but hopefully it’s obvious what I am going on about. Bentley is definitely catching up to this on the new generation GT, and even, I’d say, they’ve two steps above Mercedes. So why not Mercedes? , Their quality of service makes you want to run the other way: The car is in and out of service every four weeks, or that’s what it feels like. It’s poorly designed for its size, and things just keep on breaking all the time, pads and brake discs feel like they are made of plastic and they just melt away. I went through 3 - 4 complete sets of pads, and 2 sets of discs, in 30k miles, spirited but not insane driving. They are just rubbish, and every single other owner I met said the same thing. One time, a service technician took my car home and got a parking ticket they refused to pay for. They finally agreed to take care of it, and it was left in their hands. 6 months later, my credit score went to half because the parking company took their claim to small claims court, as Mercedes never bothered paying for it. Another time, I had my summer tires replaced, and even though I have explicitly and very strongly requested they return my tires as they were brand new, I was faced with someone nodding their shoulders saying “we scrapped them”. 2 x 305/30 R20 Pirelli P Zero tires, worth $800. To this day I have never been refunded, they just couldn’t care less. On a different occasion, I had two tires changed, front left and rear left and they didn’t even bother to check the tire pressure, returned it to be nearly tilted to one side because of how under-inflated the tires were. The difference in pressure was absolutely massive and painfully obvious even looking at the car. Each time I'm presented with large and generous invoices, with all kinds of things not covered under warranty. They charge a fortune for every nut and bolt, and the experience feels like I'm being openly ripped off without hesitation by the service technician who’s after commission. Without a doubt, half of those things aren’t actually required, or even done at all to the car. They change stuff only on paper, especially dust filters and obvious consumables, but they don’t really do anything to the car. There are no replacement cars, ever. Mercedes doesn’t provide them, Europcar does, and you’d be extremely lucky to get an A Class Mercedes, if that, as a replacement, no matter what you own. They are not even smart enough to give you something fancy and talk you into buying it. I am fortunate enough that I had other toys waiting, but if I actually relied on a replacement to be there on time I’d have a very bad day. They simply couldn’t care less, as these are all major official UK dealerships; it’s a thoroughly thoroughly disgusting experience. With average rating of 1.5 stars on Google, I’m not the only one who hates them. The car is mass-produced, and every bit of it feels that way. The brakes are the same size throughout the range, and the exclusivity element is zero. Unless you know the Mercedes range like the back of your hand, you would never be able to tell a C, E, or S class apart from a distance. That’s really bad for value retention. The car starts off nice, but after not that many miles of driving it, I can absolutely feel it deteriorate. I’ve owned mine from brand new, and it used to be fun to drive and it made good noises. Now the grinding noises and the whole feel of the car is just absolutely wrong; it doesn’t feel premium at all, and the cost of owning it has been offensive - more than any other car I’ve owned, proper supercars included. Mercedes is simply not a luxury brand anymore at all; it may have once been, but they are now completely focused on selling A class and C class cars, and that’s as much money as you should ever spend with them. I will personally never again buy one for as long as I live, as I’ve grown to absolutely despise the brand, even after owning one of their flagship battlecruisers. I still hope for the sake of their history that my experience is worse than average and I’ve just been unlucky. So what’s the best deal to be had today? Fast forward to today, I’m no longer eager to floor it at every traffic light, as the cost of tires and pads and so on is too well ingrained in my memory, and so is depreciation, something you can naively ignore when you’re swayed away by gorgeous pictures and trailer launch videos. Personally, best value for money right now, I’d look to buy a used Rolls Royce Wraith. It has already lost 50% plus of its value. That means the remaining depreciation will be more kind to its 2nd owner, it’s going to be the “smartest” financial decision. If money and depreciation didn’t matter, I’d go brand new Bentley GT. (Yes I know this is Bentley and RR, etc., but it’s one thing to be fortunate and another to be stupid). Brand new, the GT smashes the competition, for the £100k extra the Rolls Royce isn’t really worth it new vs. new(£300k new Rolls vs £200k for a Bentley GT fully loaded). The RR is probably a compromise in most verticals, and it doesn’t feel as modern, sleek and premium. It does pack way more presence and exclusivity, and if you were driving in LA/Monaco/London, the Rolls would get more heads turning. If you wanted to win at head turning you’d buy an Aventador though. Completely different beast, better suited for that purpose. Buying an S63/S65 Coupé will be the equivalent of piling up £150 - 200k in small bills and setting them on fire. It’s not a nice thing to say, but I’ve got a thick stack of service receipts for not so many miles and a resale value that back that up.

What’s so awesome about owning a Tesla? Do they brake, accelerate, and turn as well as a BMW? Do they ride as smooth as an Audi? Does Tesla stand behind them like Mercedes? Are they greener than other electric vehicles?

What a leading question series. What I am reading is: Do they handle as well as the best handling sedan WHILE riding as smooth as the best riding sedan WHILE being supported as one of the best supported sedans WHILE being more efficient than other electric vehicles? It’s kind of a crap question series. So I will break it down a bit. Teslas are heavy. They won’t brake or turn as well as a BMW. Teslas will out accelerate anything out there to legal speed limits (excluding fringe cases like the autobahn). Tesla stands behind the car very well from a maintenance standpoint and doesn’t put the screws to the owners like the others do -BUT- the system of supplying replacement parts post-accident is pretty weak and the others will get you their expensive parts more rapidly and predictably. Greener than a Leaf or BMW i3? Probably not overall, though Model 3 probably is. Tesla Model S/X consume more electricity per mile(or km) than most other EVs due to weight and performance factors. So, then you might be asking “Why Tesla?” Overall package (combination of style, function, handling, eco-cred, efficiency Charging network. All other EV’s are an iPod with no cell network to Tesla being an iPhone Acceleration + Handling. Just way better than anything else electric Tech. No other car has an interface or touchscreen that comes close Service. They come to you, mostly. Sometimes they bring you a loaner and take your car for service. Even when you go to them, it’s quick and efficient. Every other traditional dealer (not Bentley or Rolls, et. al.) is a PITA for service by comparison. I have been asked. ,“Why did you buy a Tesla?” The answer is simple. ,“Because I could.”

Her engagement ring, which belonged to Diana, Princess of Wales, was created by Garrard (the original price was £28,000, but now its worth is estimated at £300,000) and consists of a 12-carat oval blue Ceylon sapphire, set in 18-karat white gold and surrounded by fourteen solitaire diamonds. 2. For the engagement announcement, she wore a pair of earrings with a cabochon sapphire set in yellow gold, hanging from a diamond stud and a matching necklace which features two diamonds on either side of the sapphire. The set was made by Tiffany & Co. 3. For her wedding, Catherine chose the ,Cartier Halo Tiara, which was purchased in 1936 by Prince Albert, Duke of York (later King George VI) for his wife, the Duchess of York (later Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother). The tiara features 16 graduated scrolls set with 739 brilliants and 149 baton diamonds. 4. On the wedding day, she also wore a pair of earrings commissioned by her parents, Carole and Michael, from London-based jeweller, Robinson Pelham. The £15,000 earrings are made of 18-karat white gold and diamonds and their design is inspired by the coat of arms of the Middleton Family and the ,Cartier, ,Halo Tiara,. 5. It’s said that these earrings come from Diana's collection and William gave them to Catherine after their engagement. Originally, each earring consisted of two sapphires, surrounded by eight or nine diamonds with a single diamond between the clusters. She had the bottom re-set and the earrings became a favorite of hers. 6. This gold three-leaf Shamrock brooch was made by Cartier and belongs to the Irish Guards, who loan it to royal ladies associated with the regiment. Usually, it’s worn on St. Patrick's Day. 7. The ,Maple Leaf Diamond Brooch, was given to Queen Elizabeth by her husband, King George VI, before they visited Canada in 1939. The Duchess wore the brooch during both Canadian tours. 8. Another gift from William is this set created by G. Collins & Sons. The earrings and necklace are made of platinum and set with pear-shaped tanzanite stones surrounded by diamonds. 9. These diamond chandelier earrings are a long-term loan from the Queen. Catherine was spotted with them for the first time at a gala in Los Angeles in 2011 and she wore the earrings multiple times since then. 10. Her most worn earrings are the Annoushka Pearl Drops (£320) with the 'Kiki' Diamond Hoop Drops (£500). 11. In celebration of Prince George's birth, William gifted his wife an Annoushka 'Eclipse' eternity band made of white gold and set with 0.23 carats of brilliant-cut diamonds. 12. The ,Lotus Flower Tiara, was made from a diamond and pearl necklace received by Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon (later Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother) from her future husband, Prince Albert (later King George VI) in 1923, as a wedding present. The Duchess of Cambridge wore it two times publicly, for the 2013 Diplomatic Reception and the 2015 Chinese State Banquet. 13. At the christening of Prince Louis, she debuted the 'Cavolfiore Pearl Studs' from Cassandra Goad, which feature seven pearls set with diamonds. They cost £4,360. 14. The Asprey London 'Charm Pendant' necklace features three charms: an acorn (£3,200) and an oak leaf (£2,150)—which are featured on the coat of arms of the Middleton Family—and a mushroom (£4,300). 15. Princess Elizabeth (later Queen Elizabeth II) received several pearls from the ruler of Bahrain as a wedding present. Two of the pearls were used on the bottom of these dangling earrings that feature trios of round and baguette diamonds suspended from more round diamonds. Since 2016, they were loaned to the Duchess of Cambridge. 16. The diamond and platinum ,New Zealand Fern Brooch, was gifted to the Queen by the women of Auckland during her first visit to the country. It was pinned to Catherine's coat when she arrived in Wellington, in 2014. 17. For the premiere of the James Bond movie ,Spectre,, she wore the 'Pagoda' earrings which were previously seen on her mother. The £14,300 blue topaz and diamond earrings are set in platinum and were created by Robinson Pelham. Carole Middleton wore them and a matching necklace for Catherine's wedding reception, in 2011. 18. When she visited Bletchley Park, the home of codebreakers during WWII, Catherine wore this gold brooch which belonged to her grandmother, Valerie Middleton, who worked there during the war. It was designed to resemble a part of an Enigma Machine. 19. For the 2018 Dutch State Banquet, she borrowed ,Queen Alexandra's Wedding Necklace, from the Queen. This diamond and pearl piece was created by Garrard as part of a parure, at the request of the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII). It was a wedding present for his bride, Princess Alexandra of Denmark. 20. This suite of jewels was a private gift for Catherine. It features a necklace, a pair of earrings and a bracelet made of white diamonds, emeralds and yellow diamonds set in platinum. The Duchess wore the earrings in long form at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and as studs, at the 2018 BAFTAs. 21. The ,Diamond Quatrefoil Bracelet, belonged to the Queen Mother. It was inherit by Queen Elizabeth II in 2002 and it has been loaned to Catherine since 2017. 22. Another long-term loan to Catherine, these diamond pendant earrings were seen for the first time on the Queen, at the State Opening of the Parliament, in 2012. The Duchess of Cambridge wore them on numerous of occasions, from white-tie dinners to day-time events. 23. At the 2017 Spanish State Banquet, the Duchess wore this ,Ruby-and-Diamond Bandeau Necklace,. It was purchased by the Hon. Mrs. Ronald Greville in 1907 from Boucheron. When she died, in 1942, Dame Margaret left her magnificent collection of jewels (an estimated 60 pieces) to the Queen Mother and a big part of it, including this necklace, was later inherited by Queen Elizabeth II. 24. Another piece inspired by the Middleton Family's coat of arms is this diamond and pearl acorn brooch. Catherine wore it multiple times, including the 2019 US State Banquet, but its origin is unknown. 25. The ,Sapphire and Diamond Fringe Earrings, were once owned by the Queen Mother. The Duchess debuted them at a black-tie gala dinner in 2015. 26. Collingwood Jewellers gave these diamond and pearl earrings to Lady Diana Spencer as a wedding gift and they were some of her favorites. Since 2017, the Duchess of Cambridge wears them regularly. 27. ,Queen Mary's Lover's Knot Tiara, was made by Garrard, in 1913, for Queen Mary, who took inspiration from a tiara which belonged to the Grand Duchess of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, Mary’s maternal aunt and the daughter of Prince Adolphus, Duke of Cambridge and Princess Augusta of Hesse-Kassel. Catherine wears it for every white-tie reception, since 2015. 28. This four-strand pearl bracelet was also part of Diana's collection. It was seen for the first time at the US State Banquet in June 2019. 29. The Asprey London '167 Button' set was seen on Miss Middleton since 2006 and is made up of stud earrings and a same-style pendant which hangs from an 18-karat white gold chain. The center features an amethyst stone surrounded by pavé diamonds, set in white gold. 30.

They are made of white and yellow diamonds and set in platinum. 31. On their third wedding anniversary, William's gift for Catherine was a Cartier 'Ballon Bleu' watch (£5,500). 32. This £55,000 Cartier 'Trinity' necklace is believed to be a gift from her parents for her 30th birthday. Catherine wore it at an exhibition celebrating the London Olympics which took place at the National Portrait Gallery. The 18-karat chain features pavé diamonds as well as three intertwined circles of white, yellow and pink gold which are set with shimmering diamonds. It’s speculated that the matching earrings (£36,000) were gifted to her by Prince William. 33. The ,Mouawad Ruby Demi-Parure, was a wedding gift from a friend.

The Duchess wore it at the Portrait Gala in 2014 and the 2019 Diplomatic Reception. 38. The ,Pearl and Triple Leaf Brooch, is composed of three leaves of white gold, each outlined with thin bands of yellow gold and a large mabe pearl at the centre of each leaf, which are also set with naturalistic scatterings of tiny diamonds.

Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten (later Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh) gifted this bracelet to Princess Elizabeth (later Queen Elizabeth II) after their engagement. The ,Edinburgh Wedding Bracelet, was designed by Philip and was made using diamonds from a tiara received by his mother, Princess Alice of Battenberg, from her uncle and aunt, Emperor Nicholas II and Empress Alexandra Feodorovna of Russia, with the occasion of her wedding to Prince Andrew of Greece and Denmark. Catherine wore it for the first time at the Chinese State Banquet, in 2015. 41. The 'Empress' set from Mappin & Webb is one of Catherine's favorites.

Catherine wore this necklace during an audience with the President of Ukraine at Buckingham.

It was made by All The Falling Stars and it's engraved with her children's initials. 47. Another diamond bracelet loaned to Catherine is ,Queen Mary's Diamond Bar Choker Bracelet,.

What are some examples of watches that are just tacky as hell?

*Rubs hands together* I guess my taste in watches is what could be charitably described as “classic and understated” or, less charitably, “boring”. Gold? Nope. Diamonds? Hell no. Absolutely massive case size (unless it has a purpose i.e. dive or pilot watch): Nope. Here are some “more money than sense” watches that make me wish I had “the same amount of money as sense”, and a lot of sense. Let’s start off (comparatively) affordably with anything from the ,Breitling for Bentley, collaboration: *Retching noises* The “I’m a professional athlete” watch: You don’t need to keep a baseball bat by your bed in case of intruders, just bash them over the head with this. The “less original, but even more tacky AP rip-off” or, in other words, Hublot: The “I could have bought a house but bought a watch that looks like it came out of a cereal box instead”: Otherwise known as the: “F*ck you, I’m a Russian Oligarch” watch. This…thing, otherwise known as the “wtf did you do to that Rolex Daytona?”: I have no words. That’s all I can handle for now. I’ll end with a Rolex Daytona that doesn’t make me want to claw my eyes out:
