I just don't see the attraction for this Alhambra line. I haven't seen one that I like whether it is worn by Princess Grace, Princess Charlene, the Duchess of Cornwall or the Duchess of Cambridge.

The duchess is slowly building up an impressive jewel chest of her own,I wasn't mad about the necklace with this gown but the earrings and ring and very lovely.

This made me go googling to see if The Queen has anything in yellow gold that might have worked:

I could see the earrings and a bracelet, but not the necklaces.

And Diana had these:

Camilla has two different ones, one all diamond (earrings) and one in green malachite (earrings and necklace):

Thank you for showing what the queen has. I think the gold and diamonds earrings and necklace she wears with the Indian inspired dress, silk shantung, would work for Katherine.maybe they would have tp lower the necklace a little.
Camilla looks wonderful in her alahambra pieces. They are dressier.yes, katherines look more daytime or cocktail. Wonder what the ring is, a citrine.

She probably had to wear it to honor the person who gave it to her.

I prefer to see ladies in the main line wearing unique and historic items, but diplomacy is a tricky wicket.

These two would work! "anything in yellow gold that might have worked" yes exactly.

I would love to see this parure too.

I do not care for this new jewelry...maybe it would look better with a different dress but it's rather 'meh' for me at this point.

Oh no Kate has been given the Alhambra jewellery as well - not my taste at all. I would suspect Charles as the giver as he likes it and Camilla wears her sets a lot.

I was interested in the gold pendant Kate wore today. Does anyone know anything about it?

She wore it for the first time in January, it has the initials G, C and L on it (seems like something she’d get as a Christmas or birthday gift).
Apparently it’s by Daniella Draper:

Thank you for the information. A lovely, personal item and the red dress sets it off beautifully.

Pls - no more Alhambra - it is becoming slightly boring.... and I agree, this set would be better with a daytime look - not this very festive dress. Sigh.... could I pls get access to the Queens vault? I am sure I could come up with something more glittery ...
