Queen Alexandra’s Wedding Necklace

On October 23, 2018, Kate debuted a historic piece for a state dinner at Buckingham Palace.

In 1862, Garrard received a commission from Queen Victoria’s son Edward, then Prince of Wales, for a wedding parure. It was a gift for his bride Alexandra.

It is a very elaborate and ostentatious piece, featuring 8 mabe pearls, three teardrop pearls, and ropes of white diamonds, some forming small half loops in the center.

Kate is not known for donning statement necklaces often, so it was a delightful surprise to see her wear this.

Here it is on Kate:
