Duchess of Cambridge Jewellery 1: April-December 2011



Now that she has entered the Royal world as a royal Duchess and a Royal Highness, we will be expecting big things on the jewellery front from the former Ms Middleton.


It may take a while before we see the results, but let's hope that HM allows her a few minutes to rummage through those fabled and mysterious vaults.

The previous Catherine Middleton Jewellery thread can be found here.

I wanted to know about these stunning earrings, too. They match the tiara impeccably, what a wonderful choice!

The natural look was offset by pear-shaped diamond earrings designed by Robinson Pelham and inspired by the Middleton's new coat of arms.

From this link: Kate Middleton dress | Sarah Burton | Alexander McQueen | Gossip Cop

The bride’s earrings, made by Robinson Pelham, are diamond-set stylized oak leaves with a pear-shaped diamond set drop and a pavé set diamond acorn suspended in the center.
The idea for the earrings came from the Middleton family’s new coat of arms, which includes acorns and oak leaves.
The earrings were a gift to the bride from her parents for the Royal Wedding.

The Duchess of Cambridge's Jewels !~ How Lovely. The tiara was made for Kate, it never looked too good on the Queen Mum and Margaret and Anne wore it ok, but it fit just right on the Duchess. Her earrings are lovely too, nice gift from the parents. Can't wait to watch this thread grow

The earrings were lovely, and I am sure Catherine will use them a fair amount, at least in the early years.

Here is a nice picture of Catherine with tiara and earrings

I agree - I would assume to see the scroll more often on her now, as the earrings have been made to fit. I am delighted, as the scroll tiara is such a nice arte deco piece.

.... and BTW - will be interesting to see his wedding gift to her. Although I do not expect to see anything soon - she seems not to be the jewelry type of a girl.....

Interesting to see what Tiara the Queen gives Catherine; [as opposed to which pieces Her Majesty loans out....] Traditionally, the Queen gives a Tiara to her daughters in law [either from the Royal Collection] or she buys one [as she did for Sarah] and altahough Catherine is the daugher in law of her grandson, I am sure Her Maj will want to do something similar for her...

This will sound very mercenary [it's not meant to] but Arab crowned heads have a tradition of being very, very generous with gifts of beautiful jewellery - some strikingly modern but very tasteful and I am sure that there have been some exquisite pieces given to Catherine...

Will we ever see or hear what gifts were given, aside from money to their charities?

Really special wedding earrings, I love that her parents did that for her, they are perfect. I too hope she got some lovely wedding gifts of jewelry, or that the Duke gives her some more of Diana's pieces!
