Over the years the spouse of the future king and Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, has acquired some impressive pieces of jewelery. Aside from frequently dipping into the Queen’s awe-inspiring collection for formal occasions, the Duchess’ own collection spans from a priceless family heirloom to an £85 gold chain.
Below we’ve highlighted 5 of the most meaningful jewelery pieces Duchess Kate has.
1. A priceless family heirloom
Every engagement ring is special and rather meaningful, regardless of price tag, it is an everlasting symbol of love and an incredibly strong bond. However, when Prince William proposed with the Garrard sapphire ring, left to him by his late mother, Princess Diana, we’re sure it was especially meaningful and rather emotional.
2. Keeping them close
The delicate personalised necklace by All the Falling Stars the Duchess is a simple £85 gold chain with three pendants, but incredibly meaningful. Each pendant has an initial engraved into it, one for each of Kate’s three kids, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, so as to keep them close to her heart.
3. The thoughtful timepiece
A wedding anniversary is a special day for any, but in 2014 Kate received a beautiful timepiece for her third anniversary with William, who had personalised a classic Cartier Ballon Bleu with a blue sapphire to match Kate’s engagement ring.
4. Cambridge and Cornwall
A dainty golden charm bracelet is believed to have entered Kate’s collection through her stepmother-in-law, the Duchess of Cornwall. Featuring two Cs, thought to stand for Catherine and Camilla.
5. Keeping them together
Another of Kate’s necklaces also features the initials of her children, although this one only has one disk pendant with all of the initials A bit more expensive, the £1,050 disc pendant by Daniella Draper is one of two Daniella Draper initial necklaces in her collection.
