William Gives Princess Diana's Old Earrings To Kate (PHOTOS)

The Duchess of Cambridge has inherited quite the jewelry box.

The Mirror reports that Prince William presented the former-Kate Middleton with his late mom's preferred pair of earrings -- diamond and sapphire studs that matched Princess Diana's engagement ring, also in Catherine's possession.

The duchess reworked the studs into drop earrings, which she wore to Wimbledon in June and on the last day of her California tour at the beginning of the month.

Catherine isn't known for piling on the accessories, but she can sometimes be spotted wearing another piece of familial importance -- her "C" charm bracelet, in either silver or gold. 
On one side of the charm is a "C" with a curl, the duchess' new royal cypher and the other side features mother-in-law Camilla's royal cypher, a "C" without a curl.

Take a look at photos of Catherine's remodeled earrings.
