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. 

Monica Vinader Riva Diamond Cluster Drop Earrings

Accompanying the matching necklace, these are the earrings Kate wore to the Wildlife Photography of the Year gala

From the website: “Featuring Riva’s signature organic shape and pave set diamonds totalling 0.32 carats, these cocktail earrings are beautifully elegant. Measuring approximately 27mm (1.0″) in length x 35mm (1.4″) in width, the earrings are light enough to wear all day long. Match with other rose gold Riva pieces for effortless style.”

Just like the necklace, the earrings are rose gold over sterling silver. The front of the earrings are covered in tiny white diamonds. The four unusual-shaped hoops are connected with small rose gold links (also vermeil). French hooks are attached to the earring’s main section. The front of the hooks are in an elongated teardrop shape instead of the more common slim wire we often see on dangle earrings.

You can see what the back looks like here.

Monica Vinader Riva Diamond Cluster Bib Necklace

Kate wore this necklace to the National History Museum’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year gala in October 2014.

It’s a gorgeous necklace and I hope to see it again during one of her future engagements.

Update: She wore this to the National Portrait Gallery on May 4, 2016 to view Vogue `100.

According to the website, it’s “18ct Rose Gold Plated Vermeil on Sterling Silver in Diamond:.

From Monica Vinader: “Featuring Riva’s signature organic shape in 21 interconnecting hoops, and pavé set diamonds totalling 0.84 carats, this bib is the epitome of elegance. Measuring approximately 11cm in length by 5.5cm in width, with an adjustable 18 inch chain, this statement piece looks beautiful teamed with the Riva Diamond Cluster Drop Earrings.”

The hoops are an interesting shape. They’re far from perfectly round, and each hoop is shaped differently from its sibling. They are also sized differently.

This necklace is certainly one of the more unique pieces Kate has worn since getting married.

Kate wore this with her lovely pale jade Jenny Packham dress and LK Bennett shoes. I am totally in love with this dress. I’m looking forward to seeing her don it at another event.

From the Daily Mail: “And then, in 2014, Monica hit the jackpot. The Duchess of Cambridge – who, let’s face it, isn’t short of jewellery options – wore the designer’s Riva collection earrings (£745) and necklace (£2,000) to an evening gala at the Natural History Museum.

‘I knew nothing about it as my press team had lent them to her people and they’d told them to tell no one else in the company,’ says Monica.

Monica’s mobile didn’t stop buzzing with texts, while the UK offices received a flurry of calls and emails through the night, and the rest of the collection sold out in the U.S. that evening. 

‘It doesn’t get any bigger than her,’ Monica smiles.”

I am assuming that these were purchased from Monica Vinader at some point after the gala at the National History Museum. I know that Kate prefers to pay designers for their merchandise and almost never accepts gifts.

She wore this to the National Portrait Gallery on May 4, 2016.

The cost of this is $3.,200.

Cartier Trinity Necklace

Kate’s first public appearance wearing this necklace was at the National Portrait Gallery in London in 2012. At the time, she was an ambassador for the 2012 London Games. Many people viewed her choice in jewelry to be appropriate and fitting for the occasion.

The necklace features a few fine chains made of 18k gold with 4 small rose gold, yellow gold and white gold rings fitted together in an overlapping fashion. These 4 rings are positioned on the upper and middle sections of the necklace. At the very bottom is a larger ring made of the same metals. It looks like Kate’s necklace contains tiny diamonds on the rings.

I don’t think this exact necklace is available for sale from Cartier any longer. There are other versions of the Trinity necklace on their website.

The reported price of this piece is £49,000.

Kate wore it when she made a trip to NYC in 2014.
