You can better see the yellow diamonds in the photo below.
The earrings are made of an emerald surrounded by white and *yellow diamonds in a square-cut setting. About three strands of white diamonds cascade down to the emerald pendant, creating a chandelier appearance. It looks like the two outer strands consist of small diamonds while the center strand features much larger diamonds. A post with a salient edge clips the earring on. The post is studded with white diamonds and appears to be an addition to the main component of the earring, probably added on after the pendant and strands were created.
It looks like all the diamonds are different shapes and sizes. I see baguettes, marquises, and round cut diamonds on this piece.
Like the bracelet, I believe this is set in either white gold or platinum.
On February 18, 2018, we learned that these earrings are detachable.
*With thanks to Joyce P. and Anna of MSO for pointing out that there are light yellow diamonds on these and the bracelet as well.
Widely believed to be part of a suite of jewels gifted to her when she got married, Kate debuted this stunning bracelet during the 2014 NYC trip. She paired it with her ink-blue Jenny Packham gown at the St. Andrews gala.
The bracelet is made of two rows of diamonds (white and yellow) strapped to a center stone consisting of a large emerald set in a square-cut diamond setting. I am assuming this has a foldover clasp. This could be set in either white gold or platinum.
Here it is on Kate.
I believe this is a wedding gift. It has a matching pair of earrings and it’s a very extravagant piece (Kate’s taste in jewelry is not extravagant). This has not been identified for a designer yet, but I have a feeling this could be from a Middle Eastern royal. It reminds me a lot of what Princess Diana received when she got married in 1981.
Following up on the previous post, this is the matching bracelet to the necklace, also worn at the Sun Military Awards in 2011.
Here is the closeup:
Echoing the design of the necklace, the bracelet is made of white gold and features two lines of small round diamonds encircling the wrist. In between the two lines are smaller lines of diamonds running perpendicular to them, creating “cells” for the rubies and diamonds to be set inside them. Small circles studded with diamonds and flower-shaped rubies with diamond centers alternate between each cell, creating a diamond circle/ruby flower/diamond circle motif. I believe this has a fluid link (fold over clasp).
This is believed to be a part of a set Kate received when she married William.
We have seen this necklace at the Sun Military Awards in December 2011.
Here is the closeup:
It is widely believed that this (along with the matching bracelet) were wedding gifts.
The necklace is made of a connecting chain of small diamond circles running around the neckline. Suspended on each circle is a short straight line of white gold studded with diamonds. In between the circles are longer lines of diamonds. The lines alternate between short and long lengths to give it a unique pattern. At the very tip of each line is a flower-shaped ruby with a diamond center. I believe the whole necklace is set in white gold.
Given the design and weight of this necklace, I believe it has a fold-over, snap-shut clasp in the back. A necklace like this would need a sturdy clasp, and a lobster clasp would not seem strong enough to hold it in place.
My Small Obsessions received notice that this necklace and bracelet is worn by others, but in sapphires and not rubies. The photo I linked here shows the necklace and bracelet on Samira Said. I’m not sure if Kate’s was customized to have rubies (instead of sapphires), but I know that her necklace is not custom made in terms of design, because Samira owns the same necklace with different stones.
The sibling to Kate’s well-used diamond earrings, this bracelet is also believed to be a wedding gift. It matches her diamond earrings in design and style.
The bracelet consists of several halo-set diamonds in a single line, wrapped around the wrist. Echoing the matching earrings, there is a baguette shaped diamond piece in between each halo-set diamond. There are two thin rows made of small round diamonds flanking the row of halo-set diamonds, create a frame for them. My best guess is that this is set in white gold.
I’m not sure how this clasps, but expensive bracelets like these tend to have a snap-shut/fold-over closure, and not a lobster clasp.
You can see how sparkly and magnificent the bracelet is here:
She wore this bracelet on many, many occasions. Listed below are a few notable ones:
Premiere of Warhorse in London in January 2012.
In Singapore in September 2012.
Tusk Conservation Awards in September 2013.
Sportsball Gala in November 2013
If you have a favorite look featuring this bracelet, tell me about it below.
It is widely believed that Kate received this charm bracelet as a wedding gift from Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
It is certainly a bespoke piece, make no mistake about that. The letter “C” is scrolled on one side of the charm, with a crown design imprinted above it (it is her official monogram). This was definitely made just for Catherine.
The bracelet is a yellow gold cable link bracelet. It doesn’t look like there’s a Toggle clasp on this, so I think there is a clasp on it that snaps shut.
According to information from Diana’s Jewels, the other side of the charm has another “C” on it encircled with a perfect round circle. This appears to be Camilla’s monogram.
Kate wore this bracelet a few times. She wore it at Wimbledon in 2011.
