When the Prince and Princess of Wales attended the Cannes Film Festival, the star of the show was her pale blue chiffon Catherine Walker gown and wrap, but the feature of her outfit were large aquamarines hanging from a diamond cluster.

The earrings were also worn for a Reception at the Municipal Theatre of Rio, during a 1991 Tour of Brazil.

The last recorded appearance of the large aquamarine earrings was at a dinner during a 1996 visit to Italy (thanks @Davidls6). Their current location is unknown, but they probably belong to the Duke of Cambridge or Prince Harry.
