From the website: “An ode to the kites that fly throughout South Asia for the annual kite festivals, the kite is such a simple joy of childhood. The triumph of that thin paper taking off in a gust of breeze up into the sky, the ducking and twirling up there in the sky with the birds. The 18 kt Gold kites flutter on these beautiful double drop earrings.”

A smaller rhombus shaped gold piece is placed on a larger rhombus shaped gold piece. Both are set on a gold hook. The smaller piece has rounded edges.

The price of these is $1,100 or £850.

Wartski Yellow Gold Wedding Band

In keeping with tradition, Kate received a yellow gold wedding band during her marriage ceremony to William.

 

At the 2:30 mark the ring makes an appearance.

Kate has worn it ever since. It’s made from 18k Welsh gold which is already owned by the British royal family.

The gold is of a soft, bright yellow which is a true yellow. It doesn’t appear to have any orange or dark yellow tones.

The band is slim, smooth and doesn’t appear to have any engravings. If it does, it most likely is on the inside of the ring, since I cannot detect any engravings on the outer surface.

It is not exactly known which jewelry company made Kate’s ring. Thanks to My Small Obsessions for the new information! The ring was made by Wartski, a British family firm.

I found a Welsh company which claims to use the same gold that has been used to make royal wedding rings for generations.

Clogau offers wedding rings made in the style of Kate’s ring. The rings are a part of the Windsor collection. Link can be found here.

From the website: “Our gold charm earrings are a stunning everyday bit of sophistication, as well as something more glamorous for the evening. Attractively eye-catching, yet not overwhelming, these gold accessories are the ideal choice for the Brora woman.

22k gold plated brass with gold plated sterling silver hooks”

The design features two hollowed-out discs with ornate designs curved around the center. The entire design runs around the circumference of the disc. The upper disc has a more compact construction, while the lower disc’s designs are more voluminous.

Sonam Rabgye Endless Knot in Rose Gold

Queen Jetsun Pema gifted this rose gold and diamond pendant necklace to Kate during her visit to Bhutan. Kate wore it while departing Bhutan to head to Agra, India on April 16, 2016.

We first got a close look at this necklace through the hard work and efforts of Anna, who runs My Small Obsessions. 

It was revealed in the media that this was a gift from the Queen of Bhutan. We eventually learned that it was created by Bhutanese designer Sonam Rabgye.

The Endless Knot “ overlaps without a beginning or an end, symbolising the Buddha’s endless wisdom and compassion. It indicates continuity as the underlying reality of existence.” (via Religious Facts).

I personally received the following information from the company:

The pendant was a special order from Her Majesty The Gyaltsuen Queen of Bhutan as a gift for the Duchess of Cambridge who visited Bhutan with HRH the Duke of Cambridge. 

In fact, I was caught breathless when I heard that the Duchess was wearing the piece! I felt so humbled yet grateful to our wonderful Queen for her support and kindness.

This custom made Endless Knot necklace is an auspicious Buddhist symbol representing the harmony of wisdom and compassion.”

I spoke to Sonam on Twitter and she confirmed that Kate’s necklace is made of rose gold (the website offers a yellow gold version).

This is priced at $1,200. I know Kate’s is bespoke, so it’s possible hers could have cost a little more.

 

The yellow gold version is available for sale on Sonam Rabgye’s website. 

KristinM London Gold Acorn Pendant Necklace

Kate wore this necklace to Wimbledon in 2012.

From the website:

“The necklace is made of solid sterling silver gold plated with 18ct yellow gold. The acorn is around 9x8mm.
This necklace comes in three different lengths – 35, 41 and 46cm but as with all KristinM jewellery this can be altered at your request.

Also available in white or rose gold.”

The pendant is a yellow gold plated acorn with a very detailed and sculpted image, made to closely resemble an actual acorn. It hangs from a long chain. I think the chain is about 20 inches or more because it falls lower on her chest than an 18 inch chain would.

Kate also wear a box chain with this necklace.

Some are speculating the chain could be from Links of London. I am not sure, but if it is I would think Kate would wear it more often. It may just be a silver chain owned since before her marriage.

Vinnie Day Gold Disc and Citrine Pendant Necklace

At the Youth Reception in Canada (2011), Kate wore another Vinnie Day piece, a bespoke necklace.

At first, many people couldn’t ID this necklace because we couldn’t find it on Vinnie Day’s website or any other company’s website. The reason for this is because it was a bespoke piece made just for Kate.

From My Small Obsessions: 

“Vinnie Day sent this photo of the gold citrine necklace Kate wore during the North American in 2011 to Arwenn who was enquiring about the necklace for herself. As you see, here all details match, chain, tiny citrine, size and everything.
I got this ID, when I was doing my posts on Duchess’ jewellery. Vinnie Day left a comment saying “Hi Anna, The UFO Necklace with circle pendant is one of my bespoke pieces. Please update this on your blog. Many thanks, Vinnie Day” “

 It consists of three pendants. The first is a round, flat gold-plated disc covered with a dimpled texture. On top of this is a smaller disc, also round, flat and gold-plated, with a smooth surface (I suspect it was placed there to give the necklace some contrast). The second disc is nearly half the size of the first disc. The final pendant is a small round citrine stone in a gold-plated halo setting. It sits atop the other two pendants, so all three pendants are visible at all times.
Here is it on Kate.
From the information above, it seems that one can request a necklace made for them if they so desired.
