Sometimes a bracelet is just a bracelet.
and i think it add a nice touch, its pretty small and has some meaning...so imo she should wear it and imo (which in my mind is never wrong) its not tacky

I don't believe people consider the monogram on the charm bracelet tacky or even the idea of more charms tacky. I think the crown on the bracelet is what turned people off. Now, i am one of those people who doesn't love the bracelet. I've been trying to think of ways to express how i feel about it and am at a loss for words. The best way i can describe it is that i feel that the crown was almost...and i hate to use this word, pompous for someone who is so new to the BRF. I understand that it was a gift and it was a very kind gesture but i think it would have been more well received if she wore it later. I don't believe Kate wore it as a "look at me, i'm now married to the heir of the heir to the throne" but it may have come across that way to some..

I really can't phrase what i'm thinking about the bracelet so if anyone thinks they feel the same way, please describe it better. Haha.

I like the simplicity and Plaines of it but they are nothing special.
In general her jewelry are quite simple pieces which is nice.

I like the bracelet and especially because of the Catherine- C with the crown. This cypher was especially created for her and thus belongs to her. There are millions of ladies whose name starts with a C but there is only one Catherine, future queen of the UK. I think it is a nice and modest way to show that she accepts her new position while on the other hand refrains from wearing over the top-outfits and jewelery.

Today the Mail reported that as the queen is very fond of Catherine (which was told by Zara Philips and she should know!) she has invited Catherine to borrow jewellery for her visit to Canada. Still, Catherine wore very modest jewellery on her first day and probably will continue to do so the next days as she is actively searching for connections to the people and don't seem to want to set herself apart from the rest. So wearing the bracelet fits in: she is showing her individuality at the same time as she shows that she now belongs to the BRF but all that in a very modest way.

Well done, YRH.

Really, you think "some" people may think she wears the charm bracelet to show that she's married to Prince William? What, in case the more forgetful need reminding who she's married to?

.. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. ..

To ensure we are all clear what is being referred to, the motif on the charm is a coronet rather than a crown.

Yes there was a necklace but was more interested in the brooch so didn't really take much notice of the necklace

I was told that both bracelets were designed by Prince Charles, another 'C.' At one time Camilla had a bracelet with intertwined Cs, almost like Chanel.

They are white topaz surrounded with diamonds from Kiki McDonough.

The brooch doesn't stand out against the white enough- looks off.....
