Nigel Milne Three Strand Pearl and Diamond Bracelet

On July 20, 2017, Kate attended a reception in Berlin, Germany. She wore this bracelet that once belonged to Diana.

At first, some of us bloggers believed this was Kate’s years old bracelet. But close inspection revealed spacers on this one that her own bracelet lacks.

Diana famously wore this bracelet with her “Elvis” gown”.

The full story behind it can be found here.

The bracelet is made of three strands of white pearls, and at least six diamond halo spacers. From what is visible in the photo there are at least two rows of diamond spacers on the bracelet, three spacers on each row.

Here it is on Kate.

Collingwood Diamond And Pearl Dangle Earrings

On July 12, 2017, Kate wore these earrings to the State Banquet held in honor of King Felipe and Queen Letizia’s visit to the UK.

If the earrings look familiar, it’s because they aren’t new. They belonged to Princess Diana. Collingwood Jewellers gifted them to her once she became Princess of Wales.

The earrings shown above were part of an estate jewelry trunk show in San Francisco. The price listed on Metier’s site is $775.

It looks like Beaut offers copies of these vintage earrings. I’m not sure if Kate owns the vintage pair shown at the trunk show or if hers are a replica.

From the website: “Royal vintage-style ‘Eva’ earrings as worn by the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. These art deco vintage style earrings are 9ct gold hoops and sterling silver set with paste stones. Handmade in London.”

The earrings feature a spear shaped silver pendant studded with paste stones. It’s attached to an elongated triangular piece connected to two paste stone drops (one rectangular, one square). The entire front of the earring is covered in paste stones. The earrings hang on the earlobe with a gold hoop attached to the back.

Kate wore these to a private event for the Thirty Club of London in May 2012 and to the National Memorial Arboretum Appeal Dinner in November 2011.
