“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.
Kate cleverly selected three of Asprey’s charms from their Woodland collection to reflect her family’s coat of arms.
These are the charms on a bracelet.
The ones she chose are:
An oak leaf “Created by Shaun Leane for Asprey, and inspired by British Woodland flora, the Oak Leaf Charm with round pavé diamonds, set in 18ct yellow gold, is a detachable charm and can be worn with the Asprey Charm Bracelets, the Oak Leaf Necklace and the Woodland Necklace.”
And a mushroom: “Created by Shaun Leane for Asprey, and inspired by British Woodland flora, the Mushroom Charm with pavé diamonds, set in 18ct yellow gold, is a detachable charm and can be worn with the Asprey Charm Bracelets, the Oak Leaf Necklace and the Woodland Necklace”.
Each charm is made of yellow gold and diamonds. Kate wore this necklace on numerous occasions. She wore it frequently through out her 2014 Royal Tour of Australia.
Arriving in Yulara Airport (her earrings are these ones).
Arriving in Adelaide, Australia (information about her earrings found here).
Visiting the Taronga Zoo.
To the ANZAC day services.
She has worn this outside of her trip to Australia.
Visiting the National Maritime Museum (London) in June 2014.
The charms all carry different prices. I found this handy collage that gathers together all the prices for each charm and the chain they rest on.
Of course, these are the notable and custom made earrings Kate wore when she married William.
Kate’s parents had these commissioned from Robinson Pelham with the Cartier Scroll tiara and the Middleton family’s new coat of arms in mind. The elegantly carved oak leaves are similar to the scrolls of diamonds on the tiara. From the leaves dangle a diamond lined hollow pear shaped drop. In the center of the drop is a diamond covered acorn.
Personally, I love the fact that they included an acorn in the design of her wedding earrings. Most bridal earrings feature floral motifs or butterflies. I think this is a very unique approach to bridal jewelry.
The cost of these was a little more than $22,000. Robinson Pelham never actually disclosed the price, but many are estimating the cost to be around £15,000.
UPDATE: Kate wore these earrings to Order of the Garter in June 2016. We were all a little surprised to see them out again.
