Before of 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 jewelry 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 jewelry to your discretion." Over the course of their relationship, Prince Harry's wife Meghan has been seen sporting a number of items which 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.

Meghan clearly has an affinity for dainty gold earrings, like this pair of butterfly studs, which once belonged to her late-mother-in-law. Meghan initially wore the earrings in Australia for her first public appearance following the announcement of her pregnancy.

While in Australia, Meghan paired those butterfly studs with a simple gold bracelet, which once also belonged to Princess Diana. Meghan has actually worn this accessory twice now. Here, she paired it with a sparkling gown for a benefit performance of Cirque du Soleil.

And when Meghan launched her clothing line for Smart Works, she paired the two pieces again.

On Meghan Markle'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. More recently, 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.

Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with his mother's iconic sapphire and diamond ring, but Meghan Markle's engagement ring also has a special tie to Princess Diana. Harry crafted a custom design for Meghan, which featured one diamond sourced from Botswana and two smaller stones from Princess Diana's collection.
