Who isn't fascinated by the gracious and beautiful Princess Di? Everything about her held an air of intrigue, from her complicated marriage to Prince Charles to her beautiful fashions and jewels. She was larger than life yet down to earth at the same time. Perhaps this is why she was considered something of a sweetheart throughout the world.

Prince Charles proposed to Diana in February of 1981 and they were married several months later. The marriage ceremony was shown around the words and watched by hundreds of millions of people. Soon after, their sons Harry and William were born. Unfortunately, there was trouble in paradise and rumors of extramarital affairs plagued the marriage. In particular, much scrutiny surrounded Prince Charles's friendship with Camilla Parker Bowles.

Princess Diana's engagement ring was a magnificent 18-carat blue sapphire surrounded by diamonds. The princess had many fabulous pieces of jewelry and her jewelry collection was estimated to be worth over 30 million dollars. Some of her most well known pieces include: Her dangling pearl and diamond tiara, referred to as the Cambridge Love Knot. This beautiful piece of jewelry was given to the princess by her mother-in-law, the Queen of England. Copies of the pearl tiara are now worn by many brides on their wedding day. Also, her exquisite sapphire and pearl choker that she wore on her wedding day drew much attention.

The couple separated in 1992. Diana was understandably upset when Charles revealed in a television interview after their separation that he never loved Diana. Ouch! Two years later, the couple were divorced.

In 1997, Diana fell in love with Emad "Dodi" Fayed the son of a wealthy businessman. Their relationship was cut short by a fatal car accident that took both of their lives. People over the world mourned this great loss.
