Shopping with Kate: Azuni London Jewellery Haul I

I thought it would be fun to create a category where I tell you all about my shopping experiences with brands Kate has purchased from.

Today I’ll be telling you all about my first shopping adventure with Azuni London.

I placed my order on September 10th and received it today. So it took more than one month to process and reach its destination. For anyone’s knowledge, the box was shipped from London to New York City.

I ordered three items from them. My pieces arrived in a small white box.

The jewelry was cushioned by purple tissue paper.

And this was inside:

Each piece was in its own drawstring bag.

They also sent me small gift bags, which was cute.

First item is these Athena Small Stone Drop Earrings. Kate owns the Aqua Chalcedony pair. I ordered the Lapis ones.

Second item: Athena Teardrop and Stone Earrings in Aqua Chalcedony

“Old meets new with these cute antique style earrings. Hand textured teardrop hoops suppend from 6mm fine cut stones. Looking good by adding these to any outfit could not be easier. Finished in 24 carat matt gold plate. Height 30mm, including ear wire.”

I thought the gemstone would be a paler blue when I saw these earrings on the website. It’s more greenish in person.

Here you can better see the golden luster.

“This beautiful semi-precious gemstone necklace suspends from a sparkling diamond cut ball chain. With a unique textured finish and 24ct Gold plated.,the necklace is adjustable from 16.5 to 18 inches. Pendant measures 1.3cm in diameter.”

I will update this post later in the week to tell you all what I think of the pieces. I haven’t had a chance to wear them yet. I am happy with the appearance of them. They are what I wanted and I especially am pleased with the necklace because it’s exactly what I imagined it would look like in person.

Azuni Athena Small Stone Drop Earrings

Kate has worn these light blue and gold earrings a couple of times in public. I like the contrast of pale blue and gold, and they’re small enough to wear with many different outfits without overshadowing the whole ensemble. It adds a nice complement to light blue ensembles.

From the website: “The original Kate Middleton earring. These Athena drop stud earrings were worn by The Duchess on numerous occasions and come in a variety of colours and sizes. Total height 2.4cm. Disc size 8mm with 24kt gold finish. Stone dimension appx 6mm x 11mm. Available in a variety of gemstone colours.”

The other available stones are amethyst, smoky quartz, lapis, green chalcedony, pink chalcedony, lemon quartz and black onyx.

These post earrings consist of a gold plated hammered disc from which a wire wrapped aqua chalchedony is suspended. The stone hangs below the earlobe.

Kate wore these to a wedding in 2012.

The cost of these is £25 or $40.

I think these are beautiful earrings and I hope to see Kate wearing them again.
