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.

Third item: Solar Gemstone Pendant Necklace in Garnet

“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.”

The chain has a small gold coin stamped with the Azuni London name attached to it.

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.

Garnet & Pearl Gold Ring

Ayvee of Diana’s Jewels very astutely points out that the stones on this yellow gold ring correlate with Kate’s and William’s birth months.

Many people speculate that it was given to Kate as a gift from William because she started wearing it while she was dating him.

The ring is a somewhat thick band studded with pearls and garnets (June’s gemstone is pearl, January’s is garnet). It doesn’t look like the gemstones surround the entire band. They appear to cover the visible part of the ring only.

She wore it while visiting Action on Addiction in 2013.

It also looks like she is wearing it in this photo from March 2012 when she visited the UK Scouts at the Great Tower Scout Camp.
